Announcing Two by Two tour dates and cities!

The release of my next book, Two by Two, is six weeks away and with that means that I get to visit with many of you during my book tour. I’m excited to share a first look at the US tour dates and locations that have just been finalized. While I travel from coast to coast, I hope I get to meet you somewhere along the way. Visit my events page for the full list of book tour details. Please note that some of the events are ticketed due to limited space and they may sell out, so I encourage you to get tickets early.

This year, I’m planning something extra special: I’ll be kicking off the tour on October 4 in New York City with recording artist JD Eicher, who will be performing an acoustic version of the soon to be released Two by Two book soundtrack. JD and I have collaborated to create a special collection of songs including his original track, “Two by Two,” which was inspired by the book. JD will be joining me on a few more of the tour stops as well. For more about our collaboration, visit twobytwomusic.com. More information about this soundtrack will be revealed in the coming weeks. I’ll also be posting quotes and images that give you a sneak peek into the more prominent themes of Two by Two including family, friendship, love and loyalty.

Best wishes for a happy weekend (and Labor Day, for those of you in the States), and I hope to get the chance to see you this fall,

Summer Greetings from NC!

CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF SPARKS
Notebook-first-ed

The year was 1996. Ebay had just launched, Prince Charles and Diana split up and everyone was either dancing the Macarena or shouting Cuba Gooding’s famous line from Jerry Maquire—show me the money! As for me? I was releasing my first novel.

It’s the 20th anniversary of The Notebook! Here is what the original cover looked like long before Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling stepped into the roles of Allie and Noah, creating the cover we now see today. I love looking back at this and reflecting on how this book has changed the lives of so many, especially my own. I hope it had an impact on you as a reader, too.

SEE ME PHOTO BOOK

We are also saluting the paperback release of See Me with an exclusive edition, available only at Target stores. This special edition features color photos of scenes that inspired the book with notes from me. This was a challenging novel for me to write and I’m so proud of how it turned out. Thank you so much for your continued support and I hope you enjoy reading some of my thoughts on the inspiration for See Me.
