GOING WILD Tour & book trailer!

Going Wild, the first book in my new series, is on-sale in stores and online this week! Check out the trailer here to learn more about Charlie Wilde and her strange new animal superpowers. And please come see me on book tour if I’m in your area. I’d love to take a photo with you and sign your books (feel free to bring any that you already own, and pick up the new one at the bookstore where I’ll be).

We’ll have free Going Wild trading cards to give away while supplies last. See below for event locations and details. I hope you enjoy!

Paperback on sale July 7, 2015

I’ll be on tour this September, hitting the east coast. More details when I have ’em! Stay cool out there and keep reading. Hope you’re having an excellent summer!

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.

The Unwanteds: ISLAND OF LEGENDS special autographed editions with extras. Plus Unwanteds Book 5 news!

Great news! You have several options to choose from when it comes to getting COOL FREE STUFF to go with your copy of THE UNWANTEDS: ISLAND OF LEGENDS (on sale Sept. 2, 2014).

Side note: Would you like to follow me on Instagram? I hope so! @lisa_mcmann

4Unwanteds4_finalLROption 1: Pre-order a signed copy of ISLAND OF LEGENDS from my local independent bookstore, Changing Hands, and get an exclusive prize pack…and KITTEN! The tiny white Kitten figurine is exactly the same size as Kitten from the series. If you order from Changing Hands and you’d like the book personalized to you or someone else, either write that in the comment box when you place your online order, or tell them when you call to place your order. IF YOU DON’T SPECIFY A NAME, I’LL JUST WRITE SOMETHING SPECIAL PERTAINING TO THE BOOK LIKE “BELIEVE” AND SIGN IT. Okay? Okay! 🙂

Option 2: There are many other US bookstores that will have the prize packs as well, so watch your local bookseller’s social media to see if they are offering it. And I will have some Kittens with me on my tour, so please come to one of my signings to get one–check here for my tour schedule. MORE CITIES WILL BE ADDED in the coming weeks. Does this make sense? Yes? Great!

Note: There are a limited number of prize packs and Kittens, so this is one of those “While supplies last” things.

Option 3: Barnes & Noble Booksellers have a wonderful option, too. You can get an autographed copy of ISLAND OF LEGENDS with an exclusive extra chapter–an excerpt from Mr. Today’s journal. To get the signed version of this, you must order online. You will be able to find the exclusive content version in B&N stores beginning Sept 2nd, but those won’t be signed.

5Unwanteds5_jktfinalIn other news, THE UNWANTEDS: ISLAND OF SHIPWRECKS (book 5 in the series) will be coming to stores February 3rd, 2015, and it is already available for preorder at Indiebound.org, Barnes & Noble, BooksAMillion, and Amazon. Isn’t that great? You don’t have to wait a whole year for the next book!

Thank you for being awesome Unwanteds fans. Always remember to BE UNWANTED!

See you on the tour.
