Heads up, Star Wars fans! Direct from Del Rey’s Official Blog by Michelle Lawhorn
“Hello Star Wars fans!
Del Rey Books is thrilled to announce the launch of the Del Rey Star Wars Action Team, or SWAT for short. Whether you’re a die-hard reader who’s consumed every one of the novels over the past 35 years, or a newbie jumping into the books for the first time, the SWAT is looking for a few dedicated recruits. It’s entirely free — all you need is a passion for Star Wars stories and a willingness to help spread the good word.
The way it works is quite simple:
1) Help spread the word.
2) Earn points and rankings.
3) Get stuff.
All you have to do to get started is click the banner below to sign up. Once you have activated your account, start completing tasks assigned by Del Rey SWAT leaders. When each task is complete, you’ll acquire a certain amount of points. Points can be redeemed for some awesome Del Rey Star Wars–themed goodies, including posters, bookmarks, short-story samplers, bumper stickers, and of course, books.
So if you love to talk all things Star Wars, the Del Rey SWAT is for you. Again, joining up is 100 percent free. May the Force be with you.”
As of this writing the team isn’t accepting sign-ups yet (they may be putting the final touches on everything before going fully live), but keep checking back to sign up.
