Order personalized books from my local indie bookstore!

Because I have two books coming out this fall — Pumpkinheads on Aug. 27 and Wayward Son on Sept. 24 — I’ve decided to sign and personalize any books ordered through my local bookstore, The Bookworm.

The Bookworm always has signed copies of my books in stock. But if you order this summer/fall, I’ll also personalize your books, as many as you want. “Personalization” means I’ll write your name on the title page — or the name of the person you’re giving the book to. (“Dear Cath Avery….”) And I’ll sign it, of course.

This includes all of my books, even the Runaways collections.

The only catch is that your order won’t be shipped until after Wayward Son comes out on Sept. 24, 2019.

So, if you want signed books, you can get those anytime.

If you want personalized books, those will get shipped in September. Don’t forget to write the name you want me to use in the personalizaton in the “Notes.” After October, I’ll close personalization again.


Do you live outside the United States?

If you need international shipping, the most affordable place to order a signed copy of Carry On is through DFTBA.com. They will also have signed copies of Wayward Son.

If you have any questions about this stuff, hit me up on Twitter!



Faith Erin Hicks and I are coming to a city near you! (Well. If you live in America, east of the Mississippi River.)

These events are going to be so much fall-themed fun. I’ll sign up to five books, including Pumpkinheads. You can find more information about each event here.

I’ll have signed Wayward Son bookplates at these stops! And I’ll be heading out on a separate Wayward Son tour in September.

Faith and I are also coming to BookCon New York City in May. My events are listed here. My BookCon signings will be posted soon.

It’s been a few years since I’ve toured, and I’m really excited to see you guys!

New book: 'Almost Midnight' -- illustrated short stories

New book: 'Almost Midnight' -- illustrated short stories

I'm very happy to share more details about Almost Midnight, a book that collects "Midnights" and "Kindred Spirits," with illustrations by my friend Simini Blocker. Both these stories have been published elsewhere, but this is a very beautiful gift edition with a sparkling cloth cover and black-and-white illustrations throughout.

Five things you need to know about 'Carry On'

1. Carry On comes out Oct. 6th in the U.S. and Oct. 8th in the UK.

You can order signed copies from my hometown bookstore, the Bookworm. Just make a note of who you would like the book personalized to. 

2. It's a standalone fantasy novel about Simon and Baz, two characters you first met in Fangirl. 

4. I'm going on tour!

Check out my events page for more details. And check with individual libraries and bookstores for RSVP and ticket info. I'm excited to visit a few brand new cities. (Chicago! St. Louis!) 



4. There are playlists.

Here are two playlists I made while I was writing, one for each main character. I always make playlists as I write, and they follow the plot and mood of the book. So ... beware of mood spoilers!

Here's Baz.
And here's Simon.


5. I really, really hope you like it.
