Today’s the day: THE BOOKS OF ELSEWHERE, VOLUME FOUR: THE STRANGERS is an official, purchase-able, readable book. Look for it at your local bookstore (and if you’re in Barnes & Noble this month, please note the special displays of Volumes 1 – 3 in paperback!) or library. Pictures of THE BOOKS OF ELSEWHERE in the wild are always welcome.
AND, along with THE STRANGERS, VOLUME THREE: THE SECOND SPY is available in audio format at long last! You can find both books at Audible.com (Here’s THE STRANGERS, and here’s THE SECOND SPY). They’re read, just like THE SHADOWS and SPELLBOUND, by the wondrous Lexy Fridell.
Release day — even now that it’s my fourth — is exciting and frightening in equal measure. Knowing that THE STRANGERS is out there in the hands of actual readers fills my stomach with staticky butterflies; they’re bumping around in there, giving each other little electric shocks. If you read and like the book, please consider writing a review on Goodreads, Amazon, or any other bookish blogs. Or tell your friends. That’s even better.
If you’re in the MN/WI area, I hope you’ll consider joining me at Karma Gifts in River Falls, WI for a book party this Saturday, July 20, from 1:00 – 3:00 (more info on Facebook here). It’s going to be great. And if you’re on the MN side of the river, stop by Valley Bookseller in Stillwater at noon on Saturday the 27th. I’ll also be at the Summer Reading Finale Celebration at the Hazel Mackin Community Library in Roberts, WI, on Monday, August 5, from 6:30 – 8:00, signing books and chatting with readers.
Here’s the whole BOOKS OF ELSEWHERE crew (plus a photobombing copy of Neil Gaiman’s THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE, which is just as good as everyone says) at the Anderson Center’s celebration this weekend. Thanks to everyone who stopped by.
