The Library is open for a new adventure.
The Library will re-open with the second tale on October 3rd…just in time for the Haloween season! (Which is fitting since this is a story that takes place on Halloween)
On September 19th the paperback edition of The Library #1 will be published.
Just to confuse everyone, we made some changes. The hardcover edition will always be called: “Curse of the Boggin” with the original cover. But the paperback edition of #1, and ALL future editions of The Library (including hardcovers) will have a new look. And there will also be a title change for #1. The new title is: Surrender The Key.
Why are we doing this? Good question. The publisher felt that the original cover/title didn’t adequately represent the book series. So we’re making this sea-change. (Something similar happened with Morpheus Road, if anybody remembers) So if you’ve read Curse of the Boggin, no need to go for Surrender The Key because it’s the exact same book…between the covers. (That is, unless you like the new cover so much that you want the updated version. Or you’re collecting all the titles and want them to look alike. Far be it for me to tell anybody NOT to purchase a book!)
And then next month…#2 will finally publish!
I’m giving away three volumes of The Pendragon Complete…all ten books in the Pendragon saga. Go to my Facebook page (D.J. MacHale) to enter. Entry begins on December 1st and goes to December 9th after which I’ll do a random drawing.
And of course, I’ll sign them. Good luck!
I’m very happy to announce that the U.S. publisher of the Pendragon adventure has published a ten book boxed set of the entire series, in paperback. I never thought they would do this, seeing as there are so many books. But I guess it helps that paperbacks are light! I’m hoping this will introduce a whole new generation of Travelers into the world of Halla. Hobey ho!

I’m looking forward to paying a visit to the (still pretty) brand new library in Manhattan Beach.

Not sure what the time of the store event is yet. I’ll update when I get it. Here’s the link:
I’ve got a mini-tour coming up to talk about VOYAGERS: Project Alpha. Check the “APPEARANCES” section of my website for details. As always, I’ll be visiting a ton of schools but I don’t publish that info because the events aren’t open to everybody. Hope to see lots of space cadets this fall!
I love visiting schools. This is the 7th grade at Palm Desert Charter school in Palm Desert, CA. (I also spoke to the 6th and 8th grades separately) I had visited PDCMS a few years back with my first Morpheus Road book so this was my second time around. It’s really wonderful to travel around the country to see that: 1) Kids are kids, no matter where they live. They’re all awesome. 2) There are a lot of smart, engaged readers out there which bodes really well for all of our futures.
Among many other things, I am thankful for you readers who allow me to share my stories with you. Words cannot express how grateful I am.
