How To Get Stuff

**Quick note, please read this whole post, especially the link for what a SASE is. My number one question is What is a SASE, there's a very nice link.:D**

Okay! As promised, I am through with my travel-filled summer and am ready to post an address so you can get your very own swag!

I made temporary tattoo jewelry for my swag this year and since they are AWESOME (and small) I am letting you guys send in for your own! You can get either one of each of the David necklace and Tamani bracelet, or you can get two for your guy of choice.

I will also send signed bookplates that can be personalized, etc.

You have to follow directions though.



Step One: Make a SASE (Great instructions in the link with one caveat, you don't have to have different-sized envelopes. Just fold the SASE and put it in the first envelope. Super-simple!) **From comments: If you don't know what a SASE is, follow the link! That's what it's for!!:D**

Step Two: Include a small note that tells me what you want: if you are requesting a bookplate PLEASE tell me who to sign it to, and what book it is for. Here's an example:

Hi Aprilynne! I would like a set of the temporary tattoos (I like them both!) and one book plate for each of the three (ETA: four) books. Please sign them to SARA. Thanks! Sara

See? Very, very easy!

I check my mail once a week and will stuff envelopes there at the post office, so there should be a fairly fast turn-around, but give me two weeks in case your letter arrives the day after I check my mail.:D

To avoid the spambots, I have a picture of my address rather than just typing it.:D (Also, it's sideways. Security FTW.)



I don't normally reply to comments here on the blog, but if you have any PLEASE post them and I will update this post if I've missed any vital information.

**From the comments: International is fine. As long as I can walk the envelope to the postal counter and give it to them and it gets back to you, it's good.:) (Please don't send money; really, I just don't want to go there.;))**

**I used an International Return Coupon (IRC) today! It worked great!!! So yes, those are fine for my brilliant and lovely international fans!!**

**Yes, you can ask for an extra bookplate for the upcoming book four!**

Ciao!

YAY. The only problem is I live in UK. If i send an addressed envelope and a International reply coupon to pay for posting is this ok?

Cath said...

Oh wow, would love this but I'm in New Zealand!!!!

Maxine said...

Hi Aprilynne! I would live to have this stuff, but the problem is, I live in belguim. :( can I sent you also a letter from here? Xx Maxine

Ella Press said...

@Michelle, Cath and Maxine: A SASE is a Self-Addressed-Stamped-Envelope, which means you'd be paying for it too. Aprilynne would only be filling that envelope and taking it back to the post office, the shipping costs are all on you.

Hope that helps you!
Ella

Michelle said...

I know I just wanted to check that it was ok to send it :D

Mary De Bastos said...

@Ella a SASE isn't the same (or as easy) Internationally. The costs vary. It isn't like adding a regular stamp in the US. That's why they all have questions.

Vanessa said...

THIS IS AWESOME!!!! can i get an extra for when the 4th book comes out? and could i get 1 david one tamani bracelets or only one of them 2x. Last thing: how long will you have it? cause im not sure WHEN i can send it...

Cath said...

@Ella Press....I know what a SASE is ;P sadly I don't think the U.S mail service will except New Zealand postage stamps *sniff* !!!!!!
Would be fantastic if they did, I could get LOTS of personalized stuff from my fave authors:(

Anonymous said...

Is this a contest? lol. I'm kind confuse..

Vanessa said...

@ Anonymous:
no it's not a contest. it's just, u can get free stuff. sort of free... so u make a SASE so that u pay for shipping and all Aprilynne has to do is put ur stuff inside.

Azzie Littie said...

@aprilynne. I don't understand very well. I know this sounds very stupid but what is SASE and what is this all about!
Love, peace and chocolate chip cookies...

Hey Aprilynne! Hi I'm wondering how is wings4 going?? I'm really excited about it! And no other books are like it!! So please tell us how it is going I'm sure we are all excited and curious about wings4 and how far into it you are!!

Thanks!!
From CCwings!!

jenn said...

I love your books and i love freebies. That's how i got into this series. I was just wondering what size envelope we need to send?

Anonymous said...

I know you wont probably read this or care but i think if they make a wings movie , The perfect person to play Laurel would be AnnaSophia Robb, she fits the profile. and i know you dont have a vote on casting, but if u suggest it they might listen. Plus its your book so you should have a vote on what to do with it! I LOVE THE WINGS SERIES THOUGH!

Hey,
I live in The Netherlands and my father told me they don't accept dutch postage stamps in the US. Is this true? And if yes, is there some way I can send a SASE that comes back to me anyway?

Angela said...

Hi,
I also live in The Netherlands, and what your father said is true. They don't accept dutch stamps in the US.
You can try to get an International Reply Coupon, though.

IRC's are exchangeabele in any country of the Universal Postal Union (including the US) for the minimum postage for an unregistered priority item or an unregistered letter sent by air to a foreign country. (At least, that's what the back of an IRC says.)

They are not sold in The Netherlands, but if you live near Belgium, you could get one there.
They cost €2,-
Btw: they're not sold in Germany, either.

I sent Aprilynne a self-addressed envelope and an IRC. Right now, I'm just hoping for it to get back to me soon =). (I posted it last Saturday.)

I hope I've been helpful!

Angela said...

Edit:
You can buy IRC's in Germany. The wikipedia-page has been updated.

Hi Aprilynne! I was wondering if you have any idea when the 4th book is coming out. I just finished the third and I want more!!! (:

ParanormalLVR08 said...

ahhh! Is it too late to send you a SASE?

Anonymous said...

Hey Aprilynne!
LOVE your books!! And I am totally on Tamani's side!!! Well I was just wondering if at the end of your book you will have like for example: TWO YEARS LATER........ Tamani stopped his hand cupping her cheek. You know somthing like that because if you don't the whole Book will just be 24 hrs...... I know that is awesome! But i think it would be even better if we got to know what happens like who laurel picks.
Just a suggestion ........

I just wanted to say that you are INCREDIBLE and an ABSOLUTE INSPIRATION to me! You've inspired me to start my own blog on here just like you, and to document my journey to hopefully being lucky enough to get my book published one day! :D

Anonymous said...

Hello :) I have been trying to get some info on the wings movie for 3 years now and have spent hours trying to find out more about it. If you could please shine some light on the subject that would be great! AnnaSophia Robb would do great playing Laurel because she looks exactly like you described her in the book :)
Thanks:)
