CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF SPARKS
The year was 1996. Ebay had just launched, Prince Charles and Diana split up and everyone was either dancing the Macarena or shouting Cuba Gooding’s famous line from Jerry Maquire—show me the money! As for me? I was releasing my first novel.
It’s the 20th anniversary of The Notebook! Here is what the original cover looked like long before Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling stepped into the roles of Allie and Noah, creating the cover we now see today. I love looking back at this and reflecting on how this book has changed the lives of so many, especially my own. I hope it had an impact on you as a reader, too.
SEE ME PAPERBACK RELEASE
See Me is available today in paperback, and if you pick up your copy at Walmart or Sam’s Club, you receive a complimentary audio book! For the first time ever, simply purchase the novel, then go to Downpour.com and choose The Longest Ride, See Me, Nights in Rodanthe or Dear John and it’s yours for free!
SEE ME PHOTO BOOK
We are also saluting the paperback release of See Me with an exclusive edition, available only at Target stores. This special edition features color photos of scenes that inspired the book with notes from me. This was a challenging novel for me to write and I’m so proud of how it turned out. Thank you so much for your continued support and I hope you enjoy reading some of my thoughts on the inspiration for See Me.
FIND MY RECOMMENDATION AT WALMART
Finally, I am thrilled to announce the kick off of the inaugural “Author Recommends” program at Walmart. As the first author to be featured, I’m recommending six of my personal picks with some of my favorite characters and authors. When you stop into a Walmart store in August, look for my picture in the book section to see what novels I am recommending and why I couldn’t put them down (or you can check them out now at Walmart.com/NicholasSparks).
Thank you, again, for your continued support. I look forward to sharing news about my upcoming novel, Two by Two, with you shortly … stay tuned!
