Welcome to the Army of Ten

Welcome, Recruits! 

This is the Army of Ten, a street team promotional network for TEN by Gretchen McNeil (Balzer + Bray, September 18, 2012).

In order to win the war of getting the word out about TEN, we're recruiting soldiers for the following ranks in the Army of Ten:

Each ranking entails a different set of assignments, and comes with its own set of medals to earn, including entries into the grand prize gift pack giveaway.

And the best medal of all?  If you earn the rank of GENERAL, you might just get your name in the Acknowledgements for Gretchen's next book!


We will be giving away five (5) gift bags on Halloween - Tuesday, October 30, 2012.  Items in the gift bags will include:

- a signed hardcover of TEN
- a signed paperback of POSSESS
- a signed copy of DEAR TEEN ME
- a signed copy of the anthology TWO AND TWENTY DARK TALES
- a Barnes & Noble gift card
- items from the personal collection of two characters from the book (i.e. a sample size of Minnie's favorite perfume and a key chain bottle opener like Ben's)

In addition, we're giving away a SIGNED ARC OF TEN - the last one either the author or her publisher has - just for signing up for the Army of Ten.  To enter, fill out the following form.  Winner will be chosen via on Monday, September 10, 2012.

  6. Hey Gretchen: I'm excited for you, and will definitely post you on my blog. I wish you all the luck and am looking forward to reading your book. Congratulations, and what a wonderful idea.
