My Dear Friend,

I’m excited to share the news that, as of today, my latest novel, The Wish, is available for purchase online and in bookstores across the country! Just last night, The Wish Book Tour kicked off with a great event at Books & Greetings in Northvale, NJ where I had the pleasure of meeting hundreds of both new and long-time readers. I always look forward to my book tours, and I cherish the opportunity to connect with you in person and hear about your personal connections with my books. If you haven’t seen me recently, I hope that you can make it out to one of my upcoming in-person events. If you don’t feel comfortable doing so yet or aren’t located near one of the tour stops, you can still contact one of the participating bookstores for a signed copy. 

Thank you to everyone who came out for my first book tour stop. I love hearing your personal connections with my books, like naming your son after Landon, getting a #SafeHaven tattoo, and having #TheWish as your next book club read!

If you enjoy my books in audiobook and ebook formats, I have more happy news. The audiobook edition of The Wish includes a special author’s note read by me (an exclusive audio clip is available now on my Facebook page), and the The Wish ebook edition includes photos taken from my travels over the years that ultimately inspired me to create the main character of The Wish, travel photographer Maggie Dawes. I’m so excited for you to learn about Maggie’s journey, and how places like North Carolina and New York play influential roles in it!

Recently on social media, readers from around the world sent in questions including topics like when I select titles, advice for writers, and my writing process. You can see my video replies to those questions along with more behind-the-story insight for The Wish in a compiled playlist of short videos on YouTube.

I look forward to hearing what you think about The Wish and I hope to see you soon while I’m out on tour. Until then, I wish you only the best.

Sincerely yours,

Nicholas Sparks
