Some Updates of a LOST PLANET Variety

We're about two and a half months away from the publication date of THE LOST PLANET--it's going to be a real book soon! Everything has gone so quickly that I can't believe it's almost here. The awesome people at Macmillan are cooking up some exciting plans for promotion, and while we're busy getting ready and finalizing details, I'm sure January is going to sneak up on us like a ninja.

Today I have some fun news to share. First, Publisher's Weekly put up their review of THE LOST PLANET, and it's a good one!


Secondly, THE LOST PLANET is coming out in Spain next Monday, the 18th. Yes, next Monday! I'll be toasting that day with some good Codorniu cava. Here's the cover of EL PLANETA PERDIDO (I just love saying that):

Finally, if you can't wait to get a peek inside THE LOST PLANET, you're in luck! Macmillan will be releasing a free excerpt of the first five chapters next month. You can find information for pre-ordering here

That's all my news for now! Happy Monday!


  1. All great news! Congrats on the awesome PW review and the upcoming Spanish release! I can't wait to receive my own copy. :)

  2. Yay, Rachel! That PW review is awesome! I can't wait for this book to come out! I'm really excited for you!

  3. SO exciting!!! The review is fantastic! Macroscopic significance? Ultra-strong android? Yes, please! I CANNOT wait to read it. :) Congrats on your release in Spain, Rachel!! (I tried to hold back on caps and exclamations points, but ... yeah ... There's too much of this: !!!!!) :)

  4. I'm so jazzed for you. I am going to read The Lost Planet aloud to my 5th graders the second it comes out.
