Infinity Ring Birthday!
POSTED: August 28, 2012 | CATEGORY: General Updates
Hi there! I’ve been a little quiet lately, busy traveling and editing and writing. The release of The Kill Order was a huge success (#2 NY Times Bestseller!) and I want to thank everyone who went out and bought it. I hope you like it!
We already have another very exciting release. Book 1 of Infinity Ring, A Mutiny in Time, comes out today!!! It tells the story of Dak, Sera, and Riq (there’s a reason their names are spelled funny), who must travel back in time to correct the “Great Breaks” in history, which have set the world on a course for the Cataclysm, aka the end of the world. Meet Christopher Columbus firsthand as Dak and the others try to prevent him from being thrown overboard in a mutiny.
I’m really excited about this series. I have been ever since the day Scholastic asked me to serve as the “architect” and write the first and last book. The collaborative effort that’s gone into this thing will blow you all away! I’ve been honored, and had a blast, working with the team at Scholastic as well as the other five authors involved: Carrie Ryan, Lisa McMann, Matt de la Peña, Matt Kirby, and Jennifer Nielsen.
We’ve already had some excellent coverage on the book in the media. A couple of examples: THE Rick Riordan did his own review of it in the New York Times Book Review, a huge honor. You can read that by CLICKING HERE. Also, the LA Times did a really nice review of it as well: CLICK HERE.
This is going to be a very unique experience for readers. Each book comes with a fold out map that gives a code and clues to the online game component, which can be found at www.infinityring.com. So when you finish the written story it leads right into the mission that readers need to complete in the game, which then leads into the beginning of the next book.
And the game is AMAZING. You can play it on your computer or with any mobile device like a phone or an iPad. It’s a fully immersive, 3D experience. In the first mission you get to walk the streets of Paris and interact with actual historical figures. I can’t wait for you guys to check it out.
I’ll be doing some extensive touring this fall to promote the series, so check out my events page on the website to see if I’ll be coming somewhere near you. The official launch party is this week, Wednesday the 29th, at 7:00 pm at the Salt Lake City Library, sponsored by The King’s English bookstore. I hope to see some of you there!
If you get a chance to read the book or see it out there in the wild, please leave us a comment. Happy reading!
