Hero Final Cover

I’ve been getting lots of questions about Advance Reading Copies (ARCs) of Hero, so I thought it would be best to answer them here.

1.) YES! I’ve just been notified that there WILL be ARCs of Hero available. I have no idea where or when, but they will definitely be made available.

2.) I am not the person to ask for an ARC of Hero. Reviewers should email my publicist, the lovely Jennifer Groves, at Harcourt. (jennifer.groves at

3.) NO, I have no idea who the model is on the cover, but it’s not Tara from Enchanted. Which makes sense, as this book is about Saturday, not Sunday.

4.) Hero will be available October 1st. This is not a “hard” street date, meaning that if bookstores get it early, they are allowed to put it out (and you are allowed to buy it!). If you preorder the book on Amazon, it will not show up at your house until October 1st, because that is the date Amazon recognizes as the street date. That’s just the way it goes.

Now…to finish up a few more things before I fly to Florida to start Beloved. But first: SLEEP!

Thank You, Thank You!

Thank you, bloggers and readers worldwide, for your interest in ENCHANTED.

Trust me, however excited you are about the book, I promise I am TEN TIMES MORE EXCITED. At least. This is my very first novel. It’s something I’ve been waiting my whole life for…and now it’s here.

ENCHANTED has already begin releasing from the HMH warehouse. The Turn the Page signing and WRW retreat is only ten days form now, and shortly after that I will be jetting (okay, bussing) off to New York to start the first leg of the book tour. (Please Chip In for gas money here — my Dad is still matching all funds.)

As the book is imminent–and I need to concentrate on my family and preparations for my Grand Journey–I am hereby placing a moratorium on all personal requests for interviews, guest blogs, ARCs, and review copies of ENCHANTED.

I will happily begin scheduling events again in Late August or September.

As always, you are more than welcome to contact my publicist for any requests you may have:
Jennifer Groves
Harcourt Books

Again, THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for the incredibly amount of love and support you have shown me and my book. I couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you.

There’s a lot going on this summer — here’s too all of us enjoying the ride. See you in the bookstore! (squee!)
Much love,
~Princess Alethea
