A Bland New Book

Fasten your seatbelts.

The final book in the Unintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters trilogy is taking off on January 8, 2019. It’s called Flight of the Bluebird.

I’m still getting used to the idea that this is the last book I’ll ever write about Jaundice and Kale. (Though it’s certainly not the end of their story, as you’ll see when you read it.) Despite how challenging this series has been to write, these girls have thoroughly charmed me. I hope you’ve been charmed (however-Blandly), too.

And I hope you’ll help me celebrate this final chapter. I’ve partnered with my neighborhood indie bookstore and I’m running a preorder contest over the next month — I’ll choose three winners, and each winner will receive signed and personalized hardcover editions of ALL THREE Bland Sisters adventures, as well as 2 pieces of mystery swag!

Here’s how it works:

  • Preorder Flight of the Bluebird (link here) and I’ll sign and personalize it once it’s published on 1/8/19. Be sure to add how you want it personalized in the order comments. (While you’re at it, feel free to order any and all of my other titles, and I’ll sign/personalize those, too — if you order soon, you’ll get them in time for the holidays!)
  • Email me here with a photo/screenshot/printout of your receipt. That counts as one entry to win!
  • You can also promote Flight of the Bluebird on Twitter or Instagram; use the hashtag #FlightoftheBluebird and mention me (@karalareau) so I see it. Each time you promote the book counts as another entry to win!
  • The contest ends at 11:59pm EST on January 7, 2019. I’ll then draw the three winners and they’ll be announced here and on my Twitter and Instagram feeds on pub day, January 8, 2019. US mailing addresses only.

Thank you so much for supporting my books and accompanying me on this however-unintentional adventure — good luck and BON VOYAGE!
