Official Release Day x 2!


Ta da! It is the official release of BOTH Theodosia and the Last Pharaoh AND Nathaniel Fludd, Beastologist, The Unicorn's Tale. 
  
Phew. And I have to tell you, it's true what they say about twins! It's twice the work. But worth it.





I'm also thinking we should have a giveaway. So...if you'd like to put your name in the hat to win a signed copy of both books, just say so in the comments to this post!

Also, if you'd like to read the first chapters of each, they can be found here and here.




*The contest will run for a week so I'll close comments at midnight on Tuesday, April 12.

SO excited!!! I'm a huge fan, and would love to win these books (needless to say, I'll be reading them one way or another, but a signed copy would be amazing).

Becky Levine said...

Congrats! And, yes, please, I'd love to be entered. :)

Anna said...

Congratulations! My daughter (age 7) and I are huge Fludd fans! Please enter us in the drawing. I can't say Shabib without her falling into a fit of giggles and that was way back in book one.

It's writers like you, who tirelessly whip out books and actually TRY to make them good, that give us readers fresh hope.

And yes, I'll have two orders of books, easy on the awesome.

Krystal said...

My son and I are very excited to read about what Nathaniel is up to next...we've had the release date marked on our calendar for ages. A signed copy would be thrilling! Congratulations on both books.

Elle said...

i would love to be a proud 'mom' to the most awesome twins :)

Y S Lee said...

Please don't enter me in the draw, as I'm a fellow kidlit writer (and Agatha rival - en garde!) but I wanted to say congratulations on the twins! I can't wait for my kids to be old enough for Theodosia and Nathaniel.

My wife loves Theodosia and can't wait to get the new book. Unfortunately, none of our local bookstores currently have it in stock. I'm sure she would love to win signed copies.

Cynthia Levinson said...

Oooh, me, me! I want a copy. A two-fer. You're a genius!

Ruby and Jenny: Partners in Crime said...

I would LOVE to be entered for this giveaway--R. L. LaFevers is a wonderful author, and my friend and I both love her books! She has such spunky characters, and it's always refreshing to read about a strong-willed girl solving mysteries like Theodosia!

Miss Eliza said...

A signed copy of either of these books would be perfect. Both are the best in the series so far.

kristinwoldennitz said...

Me,me, me, me, me! I've been a big Elzabeth Peters fan for years, so fallling in love with Theodosia was almost instantaneous. Congratulations on your fraternal twins!

Casey G. said...

Congrats! Can't wait to read them. Can I be put in the hat for both books please?

Jill said...

Starting Nathaniel today. Theo next. Yay !

aquafortis said...

Congrats, Robin!! Whew, what a day. I would of course love to be entered in the contest. Either way, Theodosia is on my to-read pile.

Cheri Williams said...

So excited for you, Robin! Congratulations--and pick me!!

Kelly Light said...

My 11 year old ate the Theodosia books up!- I was worried her brain would get indigestion!

Melanie said...

I would love to join in!

Emma said...

I'd be overjoyed to have these twins in my personal library! Can't wait for the Dark Teen Assassin books to come out, too!

A Lady said...

Happiness is a new Theodosia book!

Jen said...

We are so excited! Can't wait to get ahold of a copy of each so my kids and I can read them. Still waiting for the library to process their copies, but we're first on the hold list! Cingrats!

Celtic Traveler said...

I would grovel on my hands and knees for those books, but this seems like the easier option.:)

Enter my name, please.

Mrs. Katz said...

Would love to have autographed copies for my elementary school library :)

dunnebacke said...

I feel a little like a schmuck, entering to win these books, but here I am, saying, "Yes please!" If we win, we'll donate our current copies to the library.

Kari said...

Congrats! Can't say I've read any of these yet (though I do intend to), but I do work at a library and know they are growing in popularity. I'd love to be entered in the drawing!

dee said...

Robin, you remain one of my very favorite people in the entire world, and your wonderful books are only part of he reason. Maggie is so excited about the new Theo, and Emile is bouncing about Fludd. Thank you, a million times "Thank You!", for creating such wonderful characters. You totally rock! Needless to say, we'd love to win. :-)

Sydney said...

Congratulations. I can't wait to read your new books. I'd love to win.

laura in la said...

Congratulations, as everyone else has already said! Quinn (age 6) and I just finished _The Unicorn's Tale_ and can highly recommend it to everyone! We love the way the story is progressing -- so much suspense. And your descriptions of the unicorn were Quinn's favorite.

Thanks for writing such amazing books!

Mary Hershey said...
