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,

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,
