My first book, STICKS AND STONES, which comes out next month.

As you may know, the book started as a Slate editorial project, and it’s about bullying. More about the book here. In hopes that I can persuade you to pre-order it—after all, you are my people!— I’ve put together a package of giveaways for Gabfest fans who buy the book before the publication date. (Truly, this is incredibly helpful to me: Pre-orders build momentum, which is crucial.)

Any Gabfest fan who orders the book — hardcover or e-book, from any bookseller — before February 19, 2013, will receive the following:

  1. A free one-hour webinar with me – with a look at the latest developments in research about bullying and kids’ behavior online, and a Q&A with me
  2. A free STICKS AND STONES book plate, signed by me and mailed to you, to slap inside your book.
  3. An entry into a raffle of 25 Gabfest posters, signed by David and John and me, and mailed to you.
  4. An entry into a raffle of 10 Gabfest T-shirts, mailed to you.
  5. An entry into a raffle to sit in on a taping, in the D.C. studio or via Google Hangout, OR to do a cocktail chatter on the show. Your choice.



Once you pre-order the book, or if you’ve done so already, just forward your receipt in any form to We’ll verify it and then send you instructions on how to access your freebies when they’re ready.
