WILDMAN: A Roadtrip Fueled by Supporting Libraries!!

So I want to share this awesome event going on!! Debut author J.C. Geiger, whose book WILDMAN comes out June 6th, is taking a cross-country road trip and he's made it completely interactive. He's tweeting and instagramming the whole thing. The coolest thing is that he's letting his readers control how far his adventure goes! He travels 5 miles for every pre-sale of Wildman, AND he travels 1 mile for every donation to the American Library Association---a great way to support your public libraries so you know I'm all about this idea!!  Check out the details here!

Follow along with his trip at:


Perfect for fans of The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner, WILDMAN (On Sale June 6, 2017follows the journey of one boy, Lance Hendricks, who thinks he knows what life has in store for him after graduation, only to uncover within himself tension between who he has been, and who he wants to be. This heartfelt debut explores the relationship between identity and place, the power of being seen, and the speed at which a well-planned life can change forever.

When Lance’s ’93 Buick breaks down in the middle of nowhere, he tells himself Don’t panic. After all, he’s valedictorian of his class. First-chair trumpet player. Scholarship winner. Nothing can stop Lance Hendricks. But the locals don’t know that. They don’t even know his name. Stuck in a small town, Lance could be anyone: a delinquent, a traveler, a maniac. One of the townies calls him Wildman, and a new world opens up.

He’s ordering drinks at a roadhouse. Jumping a train. Talking to an intriguing older girl who is asking about his future. And what he really wants. As one day blurs into the next, Lance finds himself drifting farther from home and closer to a girl who makes him feel a way he’s never felt before—like himself.

JC GEIGER has eaten the beating heart of a snake, been deported from a full-moon party, and spent a short time locked in a Bolivian prison. He also writes fiction. His short works have appeared in the pages of Murky Depths and Horror Garage, and on stage at The Second City in Chicago. J.C. now writes, teaches, directs, and performs in the Pacific Northwest, where he can often be spotted behind the wheel of a 1993 Buick Century. It still runs like a dream. Visit him online at and on Twitter @jcgeiger.

Good luck, J.C.!
