My New Novel Releases Today!

Today is the day my new novel These Nameless Things flies out into the world! I’m so excited for you to read it. It’s not like any other book I’ve written, so I guess some of you will love it and some of you might be like, Huh?

These stories I write, they’re like places I’ve visited, places somewhere out there in the real world, filled with real people I know, and all I really want is for you to visit them with me, for us to go there together, and for you to enjoy the journey.

I hope you enjoy this one.

Some people ask how best they can help on a day like this, when a new book stumbles out into the world. Well, besides ordering a copy for you and maybe one for a friend, here are a few FREE things you can do to help:

– call your local library (or go online) and request that they carry it on their shelves (or digitally)
– add it to your Goodreads “to-read” list
– once you read it, be sure to review it on Amazon, B&N,, and wherever else you can review books
– forward this email to a bunch of your friends and say, “You have to buy this book!”

I am reminded again of my first novel, The Day the Angels Fell, and how it was all of you that made that thing happen, how you supported my Kickstarter and then, when it was released by a publisher, how so many of you bought another copy. You all have been so wonderful to me through the years, such excellent readers, and you’ve really helped me grow into this writing career. We’ve covered a lot of ground in the last four years!

So, today is really a day for all of us to celebrate. I guess in this world we never know what the next day might hold. I’m thankful I get to do this, that I get to keep writing books.

Thank you.

Finally, I’m going to be documenting this launch day over on my Instagram stories. #TheseNamelessThingsLaunch And our next podcast at The Stories Between Us will be little snippets of Maile and me through the day, talking about how it feels to launch a book. This episode of our podcast will launch Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning. I hope you’ll join us.
