THE PRICE - in bookstores February 19!

Yes, finally, THE PRICE will be in fine bookstores everywhere on February 19 or 20, depending on... I'm not sure exactly what.

Don't we love this cover? It is so EXACTLY right for the book it's - well, spooky. Kudos to Adam Auerbach at St. Martin's Press!!

Watch the book trailer!

I will be starting off my tour in Southern California tomorrow, teaching workshops at the Southern California Writers' Conference in San Diego this weekend, then signing at the divine Mysterious Galaxy on Tuesday, February 19th at 7 pm, and at legendary Book Soup on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles on Wednesday, February 20, also 7 pm. There will be wine, as we most definitely need to toast the successful conclusion of the writers' strike.

More tour information is here, and being added to daily.

Here's the scoop about the book, and you can read the first three chapters on my website, too. Hope to see you somewhere in the country this year!

What would you give to save your child? Your wife? Your soul?

Idealistic Boston District Attorney Will Sullivan has it all: a beautiful and beloved wife, Joanna; an adorable five-year old daughter, Sydney; and a real shot at winning the Massachusetts governor's race. But on the eve of Will's candidacy, Sydney is diagnosed with a malignant, inoperable tumor.

Now Will and Joanna are living in the eerie twilight world of Briarwood Hospital, waiting for Sydney to die, and both going slowly mad with grief.

Then a mysterious, charismatic hospital counselor named Salk takes special interest in Will and Joanna's plight… and when Sydney miraculously starts to improve, Will suspects that Joanna has made a terrible bargain to save the life of their dying child.

Just picked up my copy a couple of days ago. I'm just finishing up with another book, but I'm looking forward to reading The Price. The sample chapters that you put on your site hooked me.

Hi, Alex! I just wanted to say that it was a pleasure meeting you at RT and I'm very much looking forward to diving into THE PRICE.

I moved it to the top of my TBR pile so it will definately be the next book I read. :D
