THE STRANGERS Giveaway Results

Thanks so much for sharing the stories of your favorite — and brilliant — Halloween costumes!  Reading them made my day.

The randomly selected winners were Taynia and Kim.  Once they email me with their addresses (, the books will be signed and sent.

If you’re hoping to get a signature in a book of your own, keep your eye on my events calendar.  New events are being added all the time.

I’m currently digging into another round of revisions for Volume Five: STILL LIFE.  Can’t believe the series is nearly done…but also really (really REALLY) looking forward to what comes next.  More on that in the near future, I promise.

  2. Hi Hannah,
    Thank you so much for sharing this. When I started writing The Books of Elsewhere, I hoped that they would find their way to readers just like you. Olive would be delighted to know that people like you are on her side.

    I was a shy kid myself (I suppose I still am, really; I’m just a larger version), and I found many of my best friends in books. Finding real life friends got easier with time, but I know that many of the characters I grew up with have become a permanent part of me. If you love books, you’re never really alone.

    Here’s hoping that your 6th grade year starts on a much better note than Olive’s! I’ll be thinking of you.

  4. Brenda: I’ll keep you posted! (And I’m pretty absurdly excited about that title myself.)

  6. Hi Taynia — STILL LIFE will be out next summer, probably in July. I’ll keep everyone posted on dates when I hear them.
