For Teachers & Librarians: A special invitation to WAKE UP MISSING…

For teachers and librarians whose students enjoyed my books EYE OF THE STORM, CAPTURE THE FLAG, and HIDE AND SEEK, and for those with readers who just love mystery, adventure, action, science, and survival stories…

Bloomsbury/Walker appreciates all that you do to put books in kids’ hands, and so do I, so we’re inviting you to be a WAKE UP MISSING Launch School. The first THIRTY teachers & librarians to sign up will receive:

  • A full-color WAKE UP MISSING poster, mailed to your classroom or library (U.S. addresses only)
  • The opportunity for students to order personalized, signed copies of WAKE UP MISSING via Kate’s launch at The Bookstore Plus (you’ll get an order form to print & send home to families)
  • First priority to schedule one of Kate’s free 15-minute Skype Q and A sessions for January or February to talk about WAKE UP MISSING after your students have read the book

Wondering if WAKE UP MISSING is a good fit for your readers? You can learn more about it here and read the first four chapters online.


Edited on 9/12:  All posters are now spoken for. Thanks for your interest, and I hope you’ll check out the first four chapters of WAKE UP MISSING HERE.

To sign up for your free poster, book order form, and Skype priority list, send an email to with WAKE UP MISSING LAUNCH SCHOOL in the subject line and the following information in the body:

  1. Your full name and complete school/library mailing address

  2. How many readers you work with and what grade(s)

 As soon as you sign up, I’ll email you an order form that you can share with your students if they’d like to order personalized, signed copies of WAKE UP MISSING (other books available, too).  The terrific folks at Bloomsbury/Walker will put your poster in the mail. In early January, you’ll get an email letting you know that my winter Skype schedule is open, and you’ll have first dibs on scheduling a WAKE UP MISSING Skype Q and A session for your classroom or library after your students have had a chance to read. Offer is limited to the first THIRTY teachers & librarians to respond. I’ll update this blog post with a note when all thirty spots on the list are taken.

Thanks again for all that you do to connect readers and books!
