You're Invited to THE TAKING Book Launch!!!

I can hardly believe it's 2014 already, let alone April! But it is, and that means THE TAKING is almost here! And for those of you who don't already know, THE TAKING kicks off an all-new series about a 16-year-old girl who disappears one night and is returned five years later, yet she hasn't aged a day.

THE TAKING officially hits bookstores on April 29th, but is available for pre-order NOW! (See below for all the ways to order signed books and get free stuff!)

To celebrate the release, we've planned a launch party at 1:00PM on Saturday, April 26th at the Barnes & Noble in Federal Way, the same place where the café named special drinks after DESIRES OF THE DEAD and THE PLEDGE. We'll have prizes, goodies, and of course, lots and lots of books! And because the launch party is April 26th (three whole days before the actual release date!), you can get your copy of THE TAKING before anyone else! How cool is that?!?! (Answer: So cool.)

And if you're not in the Seattle area, I will be heading out on May 1st to the following cities: Salt Lake City, San Diego, Oklahoma City, Dallas, St. Louis, Kansas City, Chicago, and New Orleans. For a full listing of bookstores, dates, and times, check out my EVENTS PAGE. If you're in the vicinity, I'd love-love-love to see you!!!

If you're just too far away from my tour stops, but you still want signed copies of THE TAKING, you can order personalized copies from the following stores BEFORE I arrive:

Or you can get signed-only copies from:

And for those of you who've already ordered your copies, or who prefer ebooks or audiobooks, don't worry, I haven't forgotten about you! Anyone who purchases ANY version of THE TAKING before midnight (Pacific Time) on Saturday May 3rd, will receive signed bookmarks and stickers if you email a copy of your receipt to by May 15th! See, everybody wins!
Thank you so much for reading and I hope to see all you very soon!
