THE MIRACULOUS is almost here!


And that means it’s time to launch The Miraculous Pre-Order Campaign!

Some of you may be asking, What is a pre-order campaign?

For my purposes, a pre-order campaign is a way to say Thank Youto friends and readers who’ve supported THE MIRACULOUS. And that Thank You comes in the form of—


What kind of gifts?  Well, let me tell you.


There are 3 levels.


Level 1:   Everyone who pre-orders THE MIRACULOUS or requests that their library order a copy for their collection will receive:

  • Bookmark

  • Sticker

  • One of three art cards featuring cover art by the amazing Matt Rockefeller


Level 2:   Ten winners will receive:

  • Bookmark

  • Sticker

  • All THREE Art Cards

  • Dried Flower Pendant Necklace


Level 3:  One GRAND PRIZE WINNER will receive:


So how exactly do you get these wonderful prizes? Excellent question! All you have to do is:


1. Order THE MIRACULOUS in any form (hardback, e-book, audiobook) from your independent bookseller or retailer of choice by August 5, 2019 (this includes the week after the publication date of July 30). Click here to purchase! 


2. Email your mailing address and proof-of-purchase to:

What is a Proof-of-Purchase?

Proof-of-purchase is a photo/scan/screenshot of your receipt. You can order from any book retailer—your local indie, Indiebound, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, wherever! See The Miraculous page on the Macmillan website for full links:


And library requests count too?

Yes, library requests count too! If you didn’t know, most libraries allow you to request a book to add to their collection, either through a form on their website or a paper form at the location. If you complete one of these, please send a photo/scan/screen shot of the request. That’s your proof-of-purchase!


When filling out a request form for a library, you may need some of this info:

  • Title: The Miraculous

  • Author: Jess Redman

  • Publisher: FSG/Macmillan

  • Publication Date:July 30, 2019

  • Language: English

  • ISBN: 978-0374309749

  • ISBN-10: 0374309744

And that’s it! That’s all you have to do.

Getting to publish THE MIRACULOUS—a story directly from my heart that I’m so proud of—has been a dream-come-true. I’ve been so amazed by the support and interest the story has received already from educators, librarians, kids, and other very wise adult readers who love middle-grade fiction.


So this is my way to say thank you to everyone who buys, requests, reads, connects with, supports THE MIRACULOUS. I appreciate you all so much!

TL;DR: Send your mailing address and proof-of-purchase/library-request to, and I’ll send you MIRACULOUS things!
