THE GREAT INDOORS is out today!

And you can win a free copy! (Along with some other excellent prizes.)

The Great Indoors is out today!

It feels a bit weird to be promoting a book during this particular moment in history, and I'm sorry if I'm catching you at a bad time. If you don't have the bandwidth to read on, I completely understand and encourage you to not give this another thought.

But if you’d like to help support the book, and even win a few cool prizes, read on . . .

Buy a copy!

The absolute best way to support the book is by buying a copy. It’s currently available as a hardcover and an e-book. (An audio version and several translations are forthcoming.)

If you’d like to buy a copy, you can do so at any of the following places:

Spread the word!

The pandemic means that I won’t be going on a traditional book tour, so word-of-mouth is going to be really important in helping the book succeed.

So if you feel comfortable doing so, I’d really appreciate it if you could help me spread the word. Some suggestions, if you feel so inclined:

  • Post about the book on social media!

  • Forward this email to friends and colleagues!

  • Suggest it for your book club!

  • Give a copy as a gift!

  • Position it prominently in the background of all your Zoom calls! (Kidding! Mostly…)

  • And if you read it and like it, please consider leaving a rating or review on Amazon or Goodreads.

Win cool prizes!

I’m also thrilled to announce an exciting giveaway. One lucky winner will receive: a copy of The Great Indoors from FSG, a three-month plant subscription from The Sill, a candle set from Otherland, and a Browser Bookcase from Blu Dot.

Thank you!

Thank you all for your support, patience, and interest. I’ve been living with this book in my head for the last five years, and it’s a joy to be able to finally share it with the world.



The Great Indoors is now out! You can find it at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bookshop, IndieBound, or your local independent bookstore.

You can read more of my work at my website and follow me on Twitter, Instagram, and Goodreads. (You can follow me on Facebook, too, I suppose, but I rarely post there.)
