Nowhere Home–So Very Soon

I hate to keep doing this to you, but I swear, the publication date for Nowhere Home is getting really close. I’m just waiting for the Kindle Conversion to be complete, and then I will set a date. Hopefully within the next two weeks!

To prove it, here are some pictures: The first two are the front and back cover (which very few people have seen at this point!)

And here is my first author copy! The cover is a little bent because Lisa had already started reading it before I had a chance to take picture.


The list price on the paperback is $14.95 US,  or £11.36 or €12.81 in Amazon Europe. Not sure what the Canadian price will be yet, nor do I know what the Kindle price is yet. Soon. Very soon.

If you really want to help make this book a best-seller, there are a few things you can do:

  1. Wait to buy it until the official launch date. A big bump on the release date will make it appear higher on the Amazon best seller list, and encourage more people to check out both Nowhere Home and Nowhere Wild. You may be able to find it available for sale sooner than I make my announcement (I had to open up pre-order for bookstores and I can’t control when they make it available), but please hold off just a little while longer.
  2. Amazon’s sales engine will show books other people bought at the same time they bought Nowhere Home, and conversely, when people are looking to buy those other books, potential buyers will see Nowhere Home, especially if they are bought frequently together. Here are some books I have enjoyed over the past few years that you may be interested in purchasing at the same time you purchase Nowhere Home:
        • Nowhere Wild (of course)
        • Hatchet – Gary Paulsen
        • Life As We Knew It – Susan Beth Pfieffer
        • Lost in the Barrens – Farley Mowat
        • Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins
        • Three Day Road – Joseph Boyden
        • Maze Runner – James Dasher
        • Dies the Fire – SM Stirling
  3. Support your local bookstores. Let people there know about about the books, and see if they can’t order a few, then direct people to get them there.
  4. Request it for your local library. Let me know if they have problems getting it.
  5. Please, please, please, when you are done reading it, put a review (or at least a rating) on Goodreads and Amazon and Barnes and Noble (if you can find it there). Ratings and reviews sell books. The more reviews, the more books sold.
  6. Help me get the word out on social media as we get closer to launch. Facebook it, Tweet it, Instagram it, or do whatever the cool kids are doing these days.
  7. If you know book reviewers who would be interested in doing a review, let me know. I’d love to get them an advance copy.

And if I haven’t said it enough over the years, THANK YOU to everyone who bought Nowhere Wild and those who have kept after me to publish the sequel. I hope you enjoy this book even more than the first one.

More updates to come as soon as I get them!
