I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it’s less than THREE months until UNCHARTED’s release! I am SO excited to share UNCHARTED with you that I have a little present to show my gratitude to everyone who preorders the book, via a bookstore or online retailer! I have a swag package specifically chosen or designed to reflect the story, which merges legend with history, fantasy with reality, and has plenty of danger, magic, myth, and romance.

Preorder Uncharted before September 4th, 2018

Email proof-of-purchase to  (use subject line: “Uncharted Preorder Campaign”) and include your preferred mailing address. 

That’s it! Proof-of-purchase can be a photo/scan/screenshot of your receipt, and you can purchase the book from any book retailer Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, Target, Book Depository, your local indie – whatever is convenient!

This contest is open internationally, and I will accept entries until 11:59pm EDT on 9/3/18. 

(But if you email me your proof of purchase after the contest closes, I’ll still send out a signed bookplate and a bookmark, as long as supplies last!)

And there’s no limit to how many times you can enter! If you preorder two copies, you’ll get two swag packages (and my undying gratitude!), and two chances to enter the Second Prize and Grand Prize drawings!

Thank you SO much for your support!!! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it! I’ll be at many events this fall, so if you’re in the area, please come and say hello! 

*PLEASE NOTE: I have different quantities of bookmarks, stickers, and bookplates, and they will only be available while supplies last. This means the sooner you preorder and fill out the form, the better chance you have of getting all three! (I’ll probably run out of bookplates and stickers long before I run out of bookmarks and cards.)





UNCHARTED will be published on September 4, 2018, and is available for preorder now, online or from many wonderful bookstores and retailers. And hang onto your receipt!  There will be a preorder contest announced in the next few months with lots of great prizes!

Here is the announcement in Publishers Weekly about UNCHARTED:

Ashley Hearn at Page Street has acquired world rights to Erin Cashman‘s YA contemporary fantasy, Uncharted. When 16-year-old Annabeth attends the funeral of family friends who drowned, she uncovers an ancient secret that some would die to protect and others would kill to expose—the existence of the legendary island of Hy-Brasil. Publication is scheduled for fall 2018; the author represented herself.
