So here we are again.
Today is the day.
LODESTAR, my shiny book baby now officially makes its way into the world. I can only give it one last hug before letting it go and wishing it well:
LODESTAR is now yours.
I hope you love it as much as I do.
The story won't always go the way you're expecting it to–and I have a feeling this one will make you shout at the pages and fling the book into the wall (or maybe kick it) and ugly-cry at least once (I know I did as I wrote it). But if it does, that means I'm doing my job right. (Just make sure you don't accidentally hit anyone when you throw it–this thing is heavy. You could hurt someone!)
And I hope the story also makes you laugh, and cheer for the characters, and keep racing through those pages until the very end (and yes, I fully expect you to immediately demand book 6–sorry, I'm writing as fast as I can!)
And LODESTAR isn't the only book I have releasing today. The NEVERSEEN paperback is also (finally) hitting shelves, so for those of you who've been oh-so-(im)patiently awaiting that format so you can read–or who just like to collect my books–THE WAIT IS OVER! Tinier, paper-covered NEVERSEEN is HERE!
Thank you for reading this series. If it weren't for you guys buying the books (or requesting them at your library), and telling your friends about them, and posting about them on your social media, and posting reviews on amazon and goodreads and Barnes and Noble, I would've had to cut the story short long ago. You made books 6 and 7 possible. Thank you thank you thank you!
Oh, and one small plea: PLEASE remember that not everyone will be able to read the book immediately. Some have to wait for their copies to ship, or for it to be their turn at the library, or for birthday gifts or holiday gifts–or all kinds of other reasons. So try to be respectful with where/if you post any spoilers. I have a strict No Spoilers policy on this website and all of my social media, so I'll be deleting any posted there that I see (and no, marking it *spoiler alert* first won't make it okay. Neither will “vague spoilers”). But I'll also be traveling for the next three weeks, so I won't be able to check in as often, so *please please please* save that kind of thing for your own groups and feeds.
