This is quite possibly the most important announcement I'll make all year 💌

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! 


Important note # 1: The very bottom of this email includes one of the most significant announcements I'll be making this year, so please be sure to scroll all the way down!


Important note # 2: If you placed an order for a Gilded Blood omnibus anytime after March 28th and have moved in the last 3 months, please make sure to send us a message with your updated address ASAP!


TYIA! 🫶

 

Now then, I'd like to extend a huge THANK YOU to everyone who came to see me and my lovely booth assistant, Kaylie, at Denver Fan Expo this past weekend. I was honored to see so many returning readers, and overjoyed to meet even more new ones. So for those of you who are just tuning in, welcome and thank you so much for being here!

 

Today's first piece of awesome news is that the Gilded Blood 4-book Audiobook Bundle is HERE!

You can now listen to 40+ hours of incubi, mermaids, vampires, satyrs, tommyknockers, tattoo artists, Jewish mothers, inked familiars (and so much more) for ONE CREDIT!


Happy listening (and safe driving)!🥳

 

The second piece of awesome news is that the second batch of Gilded Blood omnibuses should be arriving at my Colorado warehouse any day now! So if you pre-ordered after April 2nd, the wait is almost over!

We're expecting about 10 pallets/240 boxes of books!!😬🤯


Once they arrive, we'll have about 600 omnibuses to carefully unpack, re-pack, label, and ship, but my goal is to have all the preorders fulfilled by July 22nd. As soon as your omnibus ships, you will receive an email tracking number from both UPS/USPS and my shop. Since we'll be super busy getting orders out for the next couple of weeks, please wait until July 22nd to email us about your order if you haven't received a tracking number by then!

 

Speaking of beautiful books, look what just arrived - paperback AND hardcover copies of Amethysts & Alchemy! For those of you who preordered signed copies on my website, I plan to ship those on or around July 23rd, one week before the official publication!

If you pre-ordered the e-book version of A&A on Amazon and wish you had gotten a signed hardcopy instead, please don't return your e-book as that can cause issues with the 'zon on my end. Just shoot a receipt of your purchase to Britt (support@rachelrener.com) and she'll give you a special $5-off coupon code to compensate for the e-book. That way you can have both versions AND have a verified review should you be kind enough to leave one! 😊

 

Okay, and now for the most important part of this message.


Two years ago, a very nice man named Robert approached my signing table at Denver Fan Expo with two of his children, Bridger and Brielle, asking if they could get a signed book for his wife, Teila. I remember Brielle as this adorable, itty bitty 6 year old who had blonde pigtails and was all smiles. Her older brother, Bridger, was an equally adorable, yet very shy, 8 year old boy who kept turning the left side of his face away from me whenever he spoke. As we got to chatting, Robert told me that Bridger protected his sister from a dog attack two years prior, saving her life while leaving Bridger with over 90 stitches on his face.


My eyes immediately teared up then, as they are now, as I gave Bridger a huge hug and told him he was the bravest little boy I had ever met.


The following year, Robert and Bridger came to see me again, this time with Bridger wearing a special honorary boxing champion's belt over his shoulder and a shy smile. Robert told me that they were working on making a children's book about Bridger and Brielle, and we chatted a bit about the pros and cons of indie publishing.


This year, when Robert, Teila, Bridger, and his little brother, Wit, approached my table, Bridger was beaming from ear to ear as he proudly gave me one of five proofs for his family's upcoming illustrated children's book, You Can Be a Hero

Did I have to bite my knuckle and choke back a sob when I saw his little signature? Why, yes. Yes I did.

I don't have a huge following of millions of followers. But if even a small percentage of my newsletter subscribers shared a kind word or left a sweet review on publication day, I know that would mean the world to Bridger, Brielle, and their entire family.

Thank you so much for being here, for being your wonderful selves, and for helping me support other wonderful people doing wonderful things.


I hope you all have an equally-wonderful week ahead! ❤️
