Wow! I can’t believe we’re actually here already. Magisterium is now officially released. It’s in stores and shipping from web retailers!
Once again I’m bowled over by the simple fact that I’m actually being given the chance to publish a book. Geez, I really hope that doesn’t come off as false humility cause it’s really true. As many of you may know, I went through many many years of rejection before getting here so the idea that I now have a 2nd book that was made a Junior Library Guild Selection and is now sitting on bookshelves and making it’s way through the mail to people’s doorsteps is simply amazing.
Thanks to everyone at Scholastic, my amazing family and my sweet wife Gertie! Also thanks to every bookstore, school, library, festival and conference that has supported me for the last two years.
I’m super excited about this book and hope you all will be too!
So what am I doing for my release day? Well it’s a beautiful and slightly chilly fall day here in Beacon so I’m thinking I’ll be making up a batch of butternut squash soup, putting a fire in the fireplace and hanging out with Gertie and our growing menagerie of animals. Should be much fun!
Oh and to just catch everyone up on Magisterium, you can read a synopsis and a sample RIGHT HERE! If you’re so inclined to order a copy (thanks!) you can use the links on the right hand side of that page. Plase consider ordering from Indiebound and supporting local independent booksellers!
