Barnes & Noble will be printing an exclusive edition of Spy School Secret Service

Did you enjoy the B&N special edition of Evil Spy School? Or Big Game? Or Spy Ski School? Or Panda-Monium? If you did (or heck, even if you didn’t) here’s some good news:

There is going to be a special edition of Spy School Secret Service too.

I have just wrapped up work on some fun bonus features, and the fabulous Lucy Cummins is designing some great stuff for it as well. Like the others, there will be a special, extra-shiny book jacket with a secret surprise poster on the inside, along with lots of pages of bonus material.

And right now (July 24), the book is only $10.95 if you pre-order it on B&N. I have no idea where they came up with the price of $10.95, but if I were you, I wouldn’t question it.

All you have to do is click right here to pre-order it!

(In the past, some special editions have shipped up to a week early. ย I can’t promise this will happen again, but it’s yet another bonus for pre-ordering it.)

    Make a preview? No. That’s up to my publisher. But like I told NASASAN, the first chapter is in the back of the paperback of Spaced Out.

    Which words in ESS? (It is very hard for me to keep track of what people are talking about on these threads if they are not really specific.)

  3. I’ve been thinking because I have seen it in the comments. I think a good reason why Mr. Gibbs wouldn’t do a crossover between Teddy and Ben is because I think we would have gotten mention by now. Ben is basically like Teddy, but with less physical prowess. And also if Teddy’s so good at the detective gig, wouldn’t Spy School bring him in? Make him the next Woodchuck/Tina Cuevo? As you know Tina busts animal smugglers. I think we won’t see it because they are totally different universes

    This is so cool! I get to message one of my favorite authors digitally. Your books are incredible and inspiring. I read them all of the time, and they never get old! I have a few questions, but I understand if some information is classified. First of all, could you describe the publishing process? I know it must have been tedious, but I’m curious to know how it works. I love to write, and I’m trying to gain information about it. I know you don’t have time to say much, but do you have a few small tips for aspiring writers? I have one more question, so think carefully. It’s a little personal, but the world depends on your answer. What is your favorite color? Thank you for taking the time to read this. Have a nice day!
    Post scriptum: If a word is spelled really weirdly, it’s probably autocorrect. I checked, but you never know.
    Post post scriptum: Yes, the Latin was purposeful. Autocorrect doesn’t do that, as far as I know.

    The publishing process isn’t really tedious if you enjoy writing. Because the trick is to write something good enough to get published. You write a book, you find an agent, the agent shops it to publishers, and if they like it, you work with an editor to make the book great and then the publisher takes care of the rest. (You can find lists of agents in The Literary Marketplace, which is at many libraries.)

    The best tips for writers: Write as much as you can, write what you enjoy, and don’t get discouraged if you get rejected. Almost every writer I know got rejected plenty before getting published. If everyone had quit, there’d be no books in the library.

    Blue. Because it’s the best color. Obviously.

    How did you make a time machine? As fun as it would be to travel back to when Evil Spy School was published, I’m looking forward to Spy School Secret Service.

    That was a joke. Read both of our comments again, and I’m sure you’ll understand it!

    Oh my gosh! I am so excited!! Only a week! I am a huge fan and if you ever want to make a movie, email me because I have been on some TV shows, including The Flash, Modern Family, Austin and Ally and some other TV shows.
    I would love to be a part of Spy School! I am 13, so email me!

    I once found an advanced readers copy of Panda-Monuim at my local bookstore, so i read it about a month and a half before it came out.
    How is it possible to get more of these special books? Where do you send these?

  12. Sojie –

    If the show becomes a movie or a series, and there is open casting, I will post about it here.

  13. Sophophoph –

    My publisher decides who gets ARCs, but they generally go to local independent bookstores and maybe librarians. I’d ask those people if you can have their ARCs after they read them.

  14. Any body else finish it??? I love the book i have to wait another year for the next book to come out!!!!!

  15. I pre-ordered Secret Service about 6 months ago and it finally came! It’s a great book, one of my favorites in the series. I’m just curious, did I get the B&N exclusive? Or do I need to re-order it as a different book to get it?

  16. Cassandra –

    Does it have bonus material in the back and a red symbol on the front cover saying that it is a B&N exclusive? If not, then it’s not the exclusive edition.

  17. Do you now what you are going to call SS6. If you do, when are you going to reveal the title + cover? ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Stu-
    Are you going to make any of your characters apart of the LGBTQ+ community? It would be cool to see it in a children’s book for once

  19. Cant wait –

    Title and cover reveal probably won’t be for a while. I don’t have either one of those things yet. The book isn’t out for another year!

    Will you ever make a book with a female protagonist? Also, how can Ben go on five missions in slightly more than a year? I don’t mean to go against your reasoning or seem insulting, but it seems a little unrealistic for a few reasons.
    1. How does he have enough time and still make it to enough classes to not die on the missions?
    2. He’s an amateur spy. Shouldn’t the C.I.A. choose slightly more professional spies? He gets better throughout the books, but most of his triumphs relied on luck and Erica.
    3. He’s a kid. Not only does that add on to his lack of skill, but kids shouldn’t see the gory things that spies see.
    I know that the plot can’t be entirely realistic for the book to work. It is fiction. I just wanted to know your reasoning behind it. (Other than to make five intriguing books.) Thank you for your time!

    I just realized that you already answered my question about the girl protagonist. I had forgotten that I asked that when I asked it again a few minutes ago. Sorry!
