–Per Jason Rodriguez, the book’s editor, the upcoming Postcards anthology has been pushed back to July 17, the same day that the new Harry Potter book comes out. Jason, who blogged with us some weeks back, also has a nifty contest idea related to both books’ releases:
Ok, seriously. If anyone can provide me with proof that they went into their bookstore during a Harry Potter Midnight Launch Party and asked for/buys Postcards, I’ll make sure that one of my creators gets a sketch postcard mailed out to you or we get you a signed book or something. You can still buy Harry Potter, but if your receipt says Postcards or if you go ahead and make a little film of yourself raising a ruckus because your bookstore doesn’t have any Postcards for its Postcards Midnight Launch Party, I will find a way to get something cool to you.
