Summer Greetings 2017

My Dear Friend,

Summer is underway, and I’m excited to be able to share the news with you that my most recent bestselling novel, Two By Two, is now available in paperback. If you haven’t had a chance to read the book yet, I hope this new edition makes it easier for you to do so and that you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

As for what I’ve been up to lately, it’s been a busy travel time for me. I’ve been touring and visiting readers from Argentina to Brazil, and I’m currently making plans for my European book tour this October. Wherever I go, I’m reminded how lucky I am to have such wonderful fans and I’m grateful for all of your love and support.

In addition to the privilege of meeting new people during my travels, I also get to indulge in one of my favorite pastimes: reading! As a fellow book lover, I want to share some of the titles of my favorite recently read books. There is a short list of some of my favorite recently read books on my website and you can also look for my ongoing Nicholas Recommends list on Goodreads for more recommendations.

In related summer news, one of my bestselling novels, The Guardian, has recently gotten a special audiobook treatment that just might be perfect for a long road trip. This special edition “Booktrack” pairs traditional audiobook narration with a contemporary music soundtrack throughout. It’s a completely new experience and I’m curious to know what you think about it so if you have a moment, listen to the sample clip and let me know what you think of it on Facebook or Twitter.

I’m also excited to announce that the paperback edition of Two by Two at Walmart and Sam’s Club includes a free audiobook download! All copies are stickered with the details on how you can get your choice of a free Nicholas Sparks audiobook.

Last but not least, you may be wondering about my next novel. While we don’t have a title yet, I can tell you that the story is well underway and is shaping up beautifully. I promise that when I’m able to share more information on the book, I’ll send out an email so that you are among the first to hear about it!

Best wishes for the rest of your summer and may it be filled with wonderful books.

Sincerely yours,

 

Introducing Booktrack Audiobooks

One of Nicholas' bestselling novels, The Guardian, has recently gotten a special audiobook treatment perfect for long summer road trips. This special edition booktrack pairs traditional audiobook narration with a contemporary music soundtrack throughout. It’s a completely new experience and we're curious to know what you think about it so if you have a moment, listen to the sample clip at Booktrack.com and let us know what you think on Facebook or Twitter.

Presenting a sneak peek for the Two by Two song!

Last week, I shared the cities and dates for my upcoming book tour with you, and I hope many of you are planning to join me on the road. Today, I am excited to present an exclusive never before seen or heard video preview of the brand new song "Two by Two" written by the talented singer/songwriter, JD Eicher.

This wonderful song is an original exclusive track within a special collection of JD's remastered songs that make up the Two by Two book soundtrack. The entire collection of four songs will be sent to you for FREE on the book's release day, October 4, by signing up at TwobyTwoMusic.com.

Two By Two is my twentieth book, and I wanted to do something really special to celebrate its release. In the book, Russell and his daughter, London, read their own book, Two By Two, almost every night, and I thought that JD could really capture that special relationship between a father and a daughter, especially given that he and his wife are expecting their first daughter in a few months. Because I already loved JD’s music, I reached out to him to see if he would write an original song inspired by the book. Fortunately, he said yes! He also agreed to give away three other of my favorite songs of his. The resulting music collection is the perfect companion to the book, and I hope it amplifies the emotion and connection to the story for all of you. Again, when you visit the soundtrack site, you can sign up to receive a download link for the soundtrack as soon as it becomes available, as well as learn more about our collaboration. I hope you love it!

Sincerely,

nicholas-sparks
