Today, The Return is available for the first time in paperback everywhere books are sold! This new edition has been updated to include the first chapter of my upcoming novel, The Wish. In case you missed the news earlier this year, the feature film rights for The Return were acquired in April and I hope to be sharing more film news in the months ahead. The story of The Return focuses on an injured army doctor and the two women whose secrets will change the course of his life. If you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, I hope you will soon and I’d love to hear what you think.

As my travel plans and event details continue to unfold for my upcoming book tour for The Wish, I’m happy to be able to share updates for a few fun giveaways and partner sweepstakes related to the book’s September 28th release.

* I mentioned in my last email update that Goodreads.com has been giving away advance copies of The Wish leading up to the novel's release and, now, there are just two more chances to win advance copies of the book.

* By pre-ordering The Wish at Barnes and Noble, you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to win a framed photo print from my 2015 trip to Patagonia, along with a signed set of all 21 of my novels.

* Additionally, my publisher is offering a special sweepstakes through the month of August giving away an Ocracoke Island postcard inspired by The Wish to 500 lucky readers. As a thank you for being a subscriber to my mailing list, you’re the first to hear about it!

Sincerely Yours,

Nicholas Sparks
