Last month, I sent out an exclusive link with a sneak peek of Dreamland. If you haven't had a chance to read it yet or didn't receive the link, here is the first chapter preview for Dreamland.

I hope this summer brings you a chance to slow down and relax a bit, to enjoy spending time with loved ones, and to get in some great summer reading time too. See you on the road in September!

Sincerely yours,

An Exclusive First Look at Dreamland for My Email Subscribers, a Preorder Sweepstakes and Other Fun News.

The September 20th release date for my new novel, Dreamland, is quickly approaching, details for my US book tour will be finalized in just a few weeks and, right now, I'm happy to be able to share an exclusive first look at Dreamland with all of my email mailing list subscribers. If you are currently a subscriber, check your inbox for an email from me and you will find a link to the PDF excerpt along with some other fun news. Last but not least, thank you for being a subscriber. I sincerely appreciate being able to stay directly connected with you and I hope you enjoy your subscriber-exclusive first look at the book!

If you are reading this but you aren't currently subscribed, by signing up for my mailing list now, you'll automatically receive a link to the Dreamland first look PDF and you'll also get a detailed update on my upcoming book tour when I make that announcement in an email next month.

The early excerpt that I've shared introduces one of the novel’s main characters, Colby Mills, as he sits relaxing behind a beachfront hotel that I personally know very well. I’ve stayed at the Don CeSar in St. Pete Beach, Florida many times in the past, and it is one of my all time favorites. As I was writing Dreamland, I knew the hotel was the perfect setting for the book, and it ended up having a prominent role as the place where Colby first meets Morgan Lee, a recent college graduate and aspiring musician. 

One of my favorite hotels, The Don CeSar in St. Pete Beach, is where Colby first meets Morgan in Dreamland.

Music is also an important part of Colby and Morgan’s story. To honor that, Barnes & Noble is running a Dreamland Preorder Sweepstakes where the prize includes a record player, three of my favorite albums and a signed first edition of Dreamland. You can find more information on the sweepstakes here

In other news, just last week, it was announced that I’ll be partnering with Universal Pictures to produce three feature films including adaptations based on The Wish and Dreamland. I’m so excited to be able to bring these stories to the big screen and will be sure to send you email updates as we hit the major milestones of each film’s development and production.

I’ll have more behind the scenes info for you in the weeks leading up to Dreamland’s September release as well as a tour announcement very soon. In the meantime, if you're looking for some books to fill out your summer reading list, the mass market paperback edition of The Return became available in stores this week and it's the perfect size for tossing into your travel or beach bag on your way out the door.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day, and let us remember those who courageously gave their lives for our freedom. 

Sincerely yours,

Nicholas Sparks

Exciting News! My new book, Dreamland, will be available this September.

I’m writing to share the news that my new book, Dreamland, will be available in stores on September 20th and to give you a first look at its beautiful cover!

Dreamland will be my twenty-third novel, and I can tell you that I found writing it to be just as much of a pleasure as writing my first novel, The Notebook, back in the mid 90s. Throughout all these years, each story has introduced new, interesting characters with their own unique strengths and challenges and Dreamland is no exception. I’m incredibly excited for you to meet Colby, Morgan, and Beverly.  

At first, these three characters seem completely different from one another but as their stories unfold, deep similarities become apparent and fate draws them together in ways that are … difficult to describe without giving too much away! You can find out more about Colby, Morgan, and Beverly on the Dreamland page of my website along with a list of online retailer links where you can preorder your hardcover, audiobook or ebook edition of Dreamland today.

You’ll be hearing from me again in the coming months with exclusive previews of Dreamland, opportunities for you to enter to win some great summer and fall reader giveaways, and where I’ll be stopping on my book tour in September. Until then, I wish you all the best for a happy and hopeful spring 

Sincerely yours,

Nicholas Sparks
