Peter Lerangis unveils the next 39 Clues mission!

39clues_book3_130Someone pinch me — is it really, truly over? Whew! I started The 39 Clues Double-Dealing tour on the day The Sword Thief came out — a blustery, wintry March 3rd. I just finished on Saturday, April 18, in the glorious outdoor Free Library Festival in Philadelphia, PA, under the bright sun and surrounded by cherry and pear blossoms! In between, I’ve jogged on the rocky Pacific Coast around San Francisco, chatted with students under palm trees in Los Angeles, been mobbed by happy kids at the most amazing school in San Diego, frozen my fingers in snowy Chicago, and walked the cobblestoned streets of Philadelphia. I met an aspiring writer on Long Island whose mom agreed to postpone vacation so she could attend a book store visit, been surprised by family and old friends everywhere from Connecticut to California, and heard more interesting personal stories than I could ever relate in this space. Altogether . . . 68 events! I’ve been astounded by the popularity of The 39 Clues coast-to-coast, and I’ve met some amazing fans whom I will remember the rest of my life.

Okay, the really important question is — did I find my clue? As you all know, I’ve been digging around in the New York City subway, meeting exotic agents hidden behind trees (and captured on film), and consorting with Russian operatives in dark Chicago alleys. I worked especially hard on my Chicago clue, and I want to thank all you readers who have helped me with it.

Today, I am posting my latest and final episode. Watch this one closely, because there’s an exciting announcement. I don’t want to spoil it, because it’s important to actually see the . . . oh, okay, IT’S ABOUT MISSION 3!

Fellow hunters, a clue is on the line. We are in this together, tour or no tour! As I go to work on another 39 Clues book, my deepest gratitude goes to the fans who have helped with the hunt, and especially to the thousands of awesome kids (and teachers, librarians, and booksellers!) whom I’ve met over the last month and a half. But our work is just beginning.
So goodbye for now, but I’ll see you all on the hunt!

Cheers,

Peter Lerangis, Author
