A couple of minor factual errors not withstanding, eMissourian ran an article on March 17th about my upcoming book signing at St. Clair High School in St. Clair, MO.

Now in Stores!
Despite the official April 11 release date, Sage Alexander and the Hall of Nightmares has begun making appearances in bookstores across the nation. There have been verified sightings at various booksellers, including Barnes & Noble, in Texas, Virginia, and Florida. Keep your eyes open and pick up your copy soon!

I've been hearing from several people that Barnes and Noble released my book early, so I ventured out today to check for myself. Sure enough, the two stores I checked had them displayed, face out, near some of the other top-selling YA titles. Doesn't hurt when your name slots in between Cassandra Clare, Suzanne Collins and James Dashner. The bookstore wanted me to sign them while I was there. Sweet. So #gavincasalegno #gavster99 #dailygavin your digitized face is in bookstores all across America. #sagealexander #sagedemonslayer #goodreads #barnesandnoble #youngadult #youngreader
