28 Days From Now

This morning I got a package from HarperTeen! As usual, it took my breath away to open up the box and see my own name on the cover of this beautiful book. My own book. About to go out into the wide, wide world, only 28 days from now.


I am so proud of this book. I mean, I'm proud of all of my books. They all take so much time and energy and passion to write. But this book was especially difficult, and especially close to my heart, so it feels like something of a miracle to see it actualized.

So what do I want to do now? I want to give it away! Enter my rafflecopter contest to win this book, signed by me. I am also giving away some signed ARCs of the book this week. Just follow the directions below. (Contest starts tomorrow. U.S. entries only, please. The contest officially starts tonight at 12am, and you can do some things to get an entry every day, so check back.)

Also, I have some tour news. I am going on the Epic Reads Winter Tour with Victoria Aveyard and Jasmine Warga. So here's where and when you can come see me and get your books signed:

February 18, 7pm at Anderson's Bookstore, 123 Jefferson Ave, Naperville, IL

February 19, 7pm at Flyleaf Books, 752 MLK Jr. Blvd, Chapel Hill, NC

February 20, 7pm at Barnes & Noble Orlando, 481 N. Alafaya Trail, Orlando, FL

February 21, 2pm at Vero Beach Bookcenter, 325 Miracle Mile, Vero Beach, FL

Check my Events page for more upcoming appearances, and leave a comment there with the name of a bookstore and city you'd like me to visit. I will seriously take that under consideration in my travel planning for the year.

I can't wait to read The Last Time We Say Goodbye. The Unearthly trilogy was absolutely fantastic and swoonworthy, and you are one of my autobuy authors!

Kristina T said...

I cannot wait for your book to be released!! I would just love it in my hands right now. It would be nice if you came to Philadelphia, PA so that you can sign the book.

LisaFicTalk said...

Would love it if you would come to NYC!

My favorite bookstores near me are Anderson's in Naperville (I see you're already going there!) and Boswell's in Milwaukee.

I had the chance to read and advance copy, but a signed/physical copy would be amazing! Thanks for the opportunity!

I would love it if you came to a San Diego Barnes and Noble, or to a Mysterious Galaxy bookstore. We don't get a lot of people in Southern California unless it's LA. It would be so amazing if you were able to come down here!

P.S. I am looking forward to this book because you wrote it!

Christine Moore said...

I wish you could come to the Barnes and Noble at the Avenue in White Marsh. I loved your Unearthly books and can not wait to read this book!!!

I already know you're coming to NYC in March, so yay! I can't wait to meet you! :D<3

Chelsea Thomas said...

Come to Des Moines, Iowa to Beaverdale Bookstore. Authors never come to Iowa and your one of my favorites.

Sharon said...

Cannot wait to read this book! Would love to meet you as well.

I would like to see you, Cynthia Hand, somewhere close to where I live in California. It would be awesome if you could come to the exact same city, but that never happens with any authors so somewhere in LA would be nice! n_n And I'm looking forward to TLTWSG because it seems like a story that will stay with me forever. I hope I don't have to use too many tissues! :D Thank You!

Rachel said...

It would be super cool if you had a signing in Seattle! And I'm looking forward to THE LAST TIME WE SAY GOODBYE because I read the first bit during YASH and loved the voice, so I can't wait to read the whole book! Thanks for the giveaway!

Em said...

Because The Last Time We Say Goodbye sounds like a load of AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL AWESOMENESS!

Nicole Layug said...

I am super excited for TLTWSG because I absolutely loved Unearthy and your writing so this new story is definitely something I am looking forward to reading!

Domoni G said...

Would love to see you come to Powells books in Portland Oregon

Kanar Ibrahim said...

I've read books by Cynthia Hand and I honestly cannot describe the love and affection I had for the books I read. So I would like it if cynthia came to chicago/orland park Barnes and Nobles :)

Shell said...

Come to Missouri!!! Springfield or St. Louis... Maybe not St. Louis... Not sure about that.

And I LOVED Unearthly, so I can't wait to get my hands on this! XD

After I read the Unearthly series, I fell in love with both writing and reading! You've inspired me so much! I've been also waiting for your next book for a while now. I'm extremely excited to read something new by my favorite author. I want to see how you tackled writing such a deeply emotional topic.

Laura Odom said...

Boo! I missed the giveaway. However, I will gladly purchase the book... I can't wait to read it! :)

I would have a complete meltdown if you came to visit San Francisco. Your books are what got me into reading. No other book has been able to top your Unearthly series. I'm so excited to read your new book, I've been saving my Barnes & Noble since Christmas to buy it. Thank you so much for continuing to write amazing book, and congratulations on your new book!
