2013 has already been a very busy year for me. Safe Haven, the movie based on my fifteenth novel, was released on Valentine's Day, and thanks to all of you, it was the Number 1 movie for that day! If you haven't seen it yet, it is coming out on DVD and Blu-Ray on May 7. 

I'm currently trying to rest and enjoy some time with my family before my schedule heats up again. I'll be hitting the road this fall on tour for my next book, The Longest Ride, which will be released on September 17. This will be my seventeenth novel, and it's written in the tradition of my first novel, The Notebook, with two parallel love stories: one couple who has been together for decades, and another couple meeting for the first time. Are you interested in winning a hand-numbered limited edition advanced readers copy of The Longest Ride months before the book is released?  If so, come back tomorrow, Thursday, May 2nd at 2PM EST for a special cover reveal and giveaway.

Meantime, I want to thank all of you for being such great supporters of my movies and books. As a token of my gratitude, I've talked to my friends at shutterfly.com and they are offering all of my mailing list subscribers a special limited time only gift (just in time for Mother’s Day): an 8x8 20-page photo book with hard photo cover that you can customize with your own photos. 

As you may know, I've long been a fan of shutterfly.com myself. They helped me put together my Christmas card this year, we've partnered up for tips on storytelling and writing Valentine's Day one-liners and recently, they designed a photo book for the movie release of Safe Haven

Thank you again for all of your support. Happy Spring, and Happy Photo Booking!
