I know what you're thinking.
You're thinking. "Isn't this Tuesday?"
It is. I'm blogging on a Tuesday, but I think you'll agree this is a good reason.
See, today is the day that THE NEAR WITCH by Victoria Schwab come out in paperback. And to celebrate its release, Victoria made you all a present.
It's a short story called "The Ash-Born Boy." Victoria wrote it as a thank-you to her fans, and she wrote it to answer one question: "Who was Cole before he came to Near?"
The best part about the story (other than the fact that it's free) is that it's for everyone.
(I take that back. The best part is Victoria's writing, which is amazing and had me hooked and filled with delightful word-envy from the first page of the story. But the second best part is that it's for everyone.)
If you've already read THE NEAR WITCH, "The Ash-Born Boy" is guaranteed to change the way you see Cole. And if you haven't read THE NEAR WITCH yet, don't worry, "The Ash-Born Boy" won't spoil anything!
So basically, either way, you should go read Cole's story ;)
Also the back of the paperback itself, (WHICH YOU SHOULD TOTALLY READ) you'll find the first chapter of Victoria's new book, THE ARCHIVED, which doesn't come out until January!
So there you go. An extra blog post AND a free short story. Happy Tuesday everyone!
