Good morning, Hank, it's Thursday. Special surprise bonus video.

So I have written a book. That feels good to say. Also a little terrifying. It's called Turtles All The Way Down, it comes out on October 10th and it is available for pre-order now, link in the doobly-doo below. My previous book, The Fault In Our Stars, came out more than five and a half years ago so this book has definitely been a long and winding road, but I am so excited to share it with you.

I don't want to say too much about the plot of the book but it's a story about a young woman who's trying to solve a mystery while also trying to live with mental illness. And in that sense while it's definitely a made-up story, it's also kind of a personal one because, as most of you know, I have a mental illness that, at times, has taken over my life.

So OK, I think that's all the relevant information for right now: title, publication date, available for pre-order, one sentence of extremely vague introduction. I'm so happy to be finished with a book that I'm proud of. I really hope you like it.

Also, I just want to say a quick word of thanks. A lot of people have been really patient with me and kind over the last five and a half years, especially my family, so thank you. I have often worried that I would never publish another book and without their support I wouldn't be.

Now I know many of you will have questions, please leave them in comments below and I will try to answer some in next Tuesday's video which, by the way, is going to be an unboxing video because I hear those are popular on YouTube.

Hank, I will see you tomorrow. That's another thing I haven't gotten to say for a while!
