Welcome Dear Readers!

I'm sorry to say that this newsletter is going to be rather short because I'm on the road to support the film release of The Lucky One! The Lucky One was my thirteenth novel, and it tells the story of U.S. Marine Logan Thibault. Logan finds a photograph of a smiling young woman half-buried in the sand during his tour of duty in Iraq and after an uncanny streak of luck comes to believe that the photo is his lucky charm. The Lucky One is about Logan's cross-country trip to meet the woman in the picture … and everything that happens after. It's one of my favorite novels, and I'm so excited to see it come to life on film! The chemistry between Logan, played by Zac Efron, and Beth (the woman in the picture), played by Taylor Schilling, is sizzling! I hope you'll go see the movie when it comes out this Friday, April 20! For more info, check out the official movie website.

If you haven't read the book yet, the movie tie-in version is on shelves now or you can get it online at B&N (check out their Lucky One feature page), IndieBound, Books A Million and Amazon.

For my international fans: I'll be touring in Europe this spring! I'll kick things off with the London premiere of The Lucky One on April 23rd before heading to Germany, where I'll also attend the Berlin premiere. Then I'll head back to London, before making stops in Milan and Warsaw. I hope to see some of you there.

And finally, I want to mention the Nicholas Sparks Celebrity Family Weekend taking place in New Bern, North Carolina from April 20-22, benefiting the Nicholas Sparks Foundation. Believe it or not, the film premiere of The Lucky One is not the only thing on my agenda these days. You can find more information about the Weekend at SparksEvent.org. I hope some of you can make it to New Bern!

Again, my apologies for such a short newsletter. But I'm continuing to work on my next book, and although I don't have a release date for that yet, I'll keep you posted. More to come!

Take care,

Nicholas Sparks
