PBS’ The Great American Read

This summer, I’m incredibly honored to have one of my most popular novels, The Notebook, included in PBS’ The Great American Read. A new eight-part television competition and nationwide campaign, the program explores the power of books and the joy of reading through the lens of America’s 100 best-loved novels. As an avid reader myself, it is wonderful to see so many novels that I have personally enjoyed put together in one place. Watch related videos and vote for your best-loved book before the series returns this fall!

 

Two By Two is now in Paperback!

We're thrilled to be able to share the news that Nicholas's #1 bestselling novel, Two By Two, is now available in paperback! Centering on a newly single father and his young daughter, the book conveys an emotionally powerful story of unconditional love, its challenges, its risks and most of all, its rewards.  Two By Two is a story of testing one’s abilities and emotional resources beyond anything they can ever imagine, reminding us that unconditional love is a treasure to be bestowed, never earned.

News about my new book!

I'm thrilled to be able to share the news with you that my twentieth novel, Every Breath, is set to be released this fall on October 16! In the tradition of The Notebook and Nights in Rodanthe, my newest love story is about two characters who meet in a chance encounter one fateful weekend in Sunset Beach, North Carolina: Hope Anderson, born and raised in North Carolina, and Tru Walls – a safari guide born and raised in Zimbabwe – and the decades, continents, and bittersweet workings of fate that follow. I can’t wait for you to meet them.

In the coming months, I’ll be sending my mailing list subscribers an exclusive excerpt of Every Breath, sharing photos and stories from my recent African safari trips that inspired the character of Tru and offering up advance notice on a number of fun reader giveaways. Until then, I invite you to connect with me on Facebook, Twitter and Instragram. While the book won’t be in stores for a few more months, you can pre-order your copy now!

Sincerely yours,


In stores this fall, Every Breath explores the many facets of love that lay claim to our deepest loyalties—and asks the question, How long can a dream survive? Every Breath will be available in stores on October 16 and is now available for pre-order online at: AmazonB&NBAMiBooksIndiebound and Walmart.

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,
