It's May 15th! Can you believe it? Where did all the time go?? Well, I have some fun and exciting things to tell you, so keep on reading!
I am happy to tell you that not only does The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab come out in paperback TODAY, but, to celebrate its release, "The Ash-Born Boy" is finally up over at Disney Hyperion
So, I know you're wondering what "The Ash-Born Boy" is.Well It's a free story Victoria wrote as a thank-you to her fans, and she wrote it to answer ONE question that we've all been wondering: "Who was Cole before he came to Near?" Hmmmm.....
Now, if you've already read The Near Witch (which, by the way, is a completely awesome book), "The Ash-Born Boy" is guaranteed to change the way you see Cole.
And if you haven't read THE NEAR WITCH yet, don't worry, "The Ash-Born Boy" won't spoil anything!
So basically, either way, you should go read Cole's story ;) Seriously, go read it, right now!!
And if you want to wait and read THE NEAR WITCH first, don't worry! Cole's story will stay up on Disney*Hyperion's website, and if it ever comes down, Victoria will carve out a space for it on her own site. It will always be available somewhere, and it will always be free.
And! Yes, there is more!!
Cole's story isn't the only goodie to go along with the paperback release. In the back of the paperback itself, you'll find the first chapter of Victoria's new book, THE ARCHIVED, which doesn't come out until January! YAAAYYY!! Happy Dance time!! :D
So what are you waiting for? Help Victoria celebrate today by taking a look at "The Ash-Born Boy," and don't forget to buy/order/pick up your own paperback copy of THE NEAR WITCH! Let me know in the comments what you think of the story!
