The Unwanteds: ISLAND OF SHIPWRECKS is in stores this week!

Island of Shipwrecks

The official release day is Tuesday, Feb. 3, but the book is trickling into bookstores already. I just signed a couple copies in the Pittsburgh airport, in fact.

Visit the official Unwanteds website for cool downloadables, games, a book trailer, a map, and an educator’s guide.

And here’s some fun news–B&N choose Island of Shipwrecks as one of February’s Top Picks for Young Readers, yay!

I’ll be signing a lot of books in the coming weeks. My book tour starts on Tuesday, and I’ll be presenting at schools and bookstores all over Arizona, California, and Texas. Check my APPEARANCES page on my website for the most up to date information, or scroll down.

If you want one of the exclusive, collectible prize packs along with an autographed copy of the book, order by Monday, Feb 2nd (that’s tomorrow!) or come to my launch party on Tuesday, Feb 3, at 6pm. They ship worldwide. Here’s what’s in the prize pack:

It's PANTHER!

It’s PANTHER! (she’s tiny)

A collectible postcard? Bookmark, sticker, and even a Find The Differences poster? WOW!

A collectible postcard? Bookmark, sticker, and even a Find The Differences poster? WOW!

I know it’s hard to keep a secret, especially when something major happens in a book. But try to keep in mind when you’re posting on the Internet (to me or to others) that friends, acquaintances, or strangers might not have read the book yet.
