Welcome to the pre-order offer for DARKDAWN, droogs! Hope you’re excited! Enough! For! Multiple! Exclamation! Points!

Please read the directions and FAQ below carefully. It should answer all your questions. As always, if you ask me a question I’ve already answered, you owe me a goddamn pony.

So, to be eligible, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Pre-order DARKDAWN from anywhere. Yes, anywhere.
  2. Email your proof of purchase to the following address: DarkdawnPreorder@gmail.com.
  3. Please use the subject header “DARKDAWN pre-order offer”
  4. Profit!


Right, so what do we get for our pre-order, Kristoff?
You get a deleted chapter from DARKDAWN called “Three”.

Why should we care? What’s this deleted chapter about? 
Revealing much about it gets into spoiler territory quickly. But the chapter features a much-requested moment between three central DARKDAWN characters that, for story reasons, never made it to the final book.

*heavy breathing* . . . Do their names start with M, A and T?!?
Spoilers, sweetie.

But wait . . . it’s called “Three”?
Yeah. Do you see what I did there.

Jay, this scene sounds suspiciously like it might be smut.
That’s not a question.

Use your words.

When does the offer close?
September 1, 2019.

When will we receive our goodies?
The day of DARKDAWN publication. September 3, 2019. THREE will be sent to the email address you entered the offer with.

So it’s a PDF, not a physical booklet?
It’s a PDF. So I imagine it’ll be up for download on pirate sites within about 30 seconds. Yay internet.

Omg, please tell me this offer is open internationally, you black-hearted sonofabitch?
Yes. It’s 100% open internationally.

Is this the same deleted scene that the various book subscription boxes are offering?
Yes. So even if you can’t afford/don’t want a subscription box, or the box you’ve ordered isn’t offering THREE, you can still get it by following the instructions above. See how much I love and appreciate you?

And we can really pre-order DD from anywhere and be eligible?
Yes. Just email your scanned receipt to the address above.

Book Depository? Amazon?

That dodgy guy who sells books off the back of a Buick downtown? The little bookstore on the corner of my quaint European village? The undead bookomancer who haunts the crossroads at midnight and trafficks exclusively in human souls?
Fuck, that’s so metal. And yes.

Will I receive some kind of confirmation email?
No, you’ll have to trust the internet gods. It’ll be fine.

If I preordered aaaaages ago because you are my moon, my sun, my starlit sky, should I cancel and re-order?
Nope. Unless you didn’t keep your proof of purchase and need a new one, that is. And thanks for pre-ordering early!

When you say ‘proof of purchase’ . . . is a screenshot okay?
Indeed. It’s not like we’re demanding sworn affidavits or anything. So if you wanna get really creative in photoshop and doctor yourself one, A+ for effort, I guess?

And all pre-ordered US editions are still going to be signed?
Yes. All pre-orders of the US edition of DD will be signed. I just finished signing 20,000 fucking tip-in sheets. 🙂

*best Han Solo voice* I know.

  1. Iva F. says:

    Even though Amazon canceled my order, I just wanna ask (in case I end up ordering again), is a screenshot of a pre-order email a valid proof of pre-order?

  2. Michelle says:

    Does it count for audiobook preorder too?

  3. You’re the fucking best! I even enjoy reading your faqs 😂

  4. Christie says:

    I have never pre-ordered anything,ever….. this is no longer the case. 😋

    Going to go camp out in front of my mailbox everyday for the next 2 months and possibly start stalking my mail lady. (<—-Pretty much the reason why I never pre-ordered anything)


  5. Tahera says:

    So I’m in the process of sending my email, and I’m two seconds away from having the body of the email say: “Attached below is proof of me selling my soul for a copy of Darkdawn. Jay, you glorious bastard, I am ready to have my heart ripped out.”

    What are the chances I will horribly offend someone?

  6. Amanda E says:

    The FAQ just made my whole day! Thank you! I can’t wait to read this book!!!!!!!!!

  7. Theodora says:

    Thank you for loving us so much! I don’t know what we did to deserve you!!!! (Though I suppose I will feel differently after reading DD)

  8. Matt B says:

    The scene won’t be considered canon then?

  9. Aly says:

    Mr.Kristoff, sir, there are two pricetags for Darkdawn on Book Depository with no covers posted. Is there a reason why one hardback is priced higher than the other?

  10. Jackie says:

    There’s only one other book im more pumped for and it has vampire smut 😀

  11. Meeghan says:

    I thought it was 22,000 tip in sheets. *raises one eyebrow suspiciously* Are you lying to us??? (But seriously, thank you for signing, like, anything we put in front of you. It really does mean the world to us book nerds.)

  12. Emily L. says:

    Will there be any spoilers in the deleted scenes from Darkdawn? Can I read the deleted scenes before I read Darkdawn?

  13. Ravenhoot says:

    I didn’t even know what this was but reading the answers to the FAQs makes me want to.

  14. Marta Silva says:

    You’ve probably already answered this, but I’m still a little confused… Is this offer only for the US/hardback edition? Or is it valid for the UK/paperback too?
    And thank you!

  15. Cara V says:

    I preordered this almost one year ago (July 10/19) and could not be happier to hear this. FUCK YEAH!!!!!

  16. Lisa says:

    Hello! I’m super excited for this book!!!!!! But I can’t find the any US editions in paperback shipping to Sweden???!?! I have the rest of the series in paperback and would preferably have them all in paperback. Any suggestions where I can find US paperback?

  17. Ramla says:

    Hi, can the proof be in another language? Like if I preorder DD in a french store and the receipt is in french it still stands right? (I hope I don’t owe you a poney)

  18. Lina says:

    I preorderd DD ages ago but have a order confirmation. Can I send it in even if it is in German? Does this count too?

  19. Courtney says:

    I just literally laughed out loud at work reading the FAQ. Thank you for being so amazing. You bring joy to my life!

  20. Jack says:

    And here I have to wait for the polish release…

  21. Lauren says:

    Does this have a deadline?

  22. katrina says:
