Hey everyone! I just wanted to stop by for a quick update on here. I’ve just released my 5th book into the world–Ashlords. It had a successful launch that was such a blast. Thank you if you came out and celebrated with me at one of the tour stops, or simply by grabbing a book on your own and jumping in. I’ve got my second middle grade book– ESCAPING ORDINARY– coming on September 22nd. It’s perfect for readers who enjoyed Percy Jackson, Wings of Fire, or Land of Stories.

My wife and I are expecting our second son in just a few days, so I’m very likely to vanish for a little while. Check my events page, though, to find out where I’ll be in 2020. It’ll be updated as I get more info on more festival stops. Thanks again for being such great readers.

Saving Fable – 9/17/19

I’ve been a little less active in this space, but I did want to drop in to say that my next book, SAVING FABLE, releases this month! It’s a middle grade adventure story that takes a look behind the curtain of the world of books. How did your favorite characters come to exist? Who trained them? Saving Fable imagines the world of characters-in-training at Protagonist Preparatory. It’s a love letter to stories, wrapped in an exciting adventure that every young reader will love.

YA Book Drive for Wilmington Schools

This past fall, Hurricane Florence devastated Wilmington, NC and the surrounding areas of Eastern NC. I’ve been visiting Wrightsville Beach since I was five. I’ve also had the pleasure of working with several librarians to visit several schools in that area in the past. After Florence came through, we cancelled several upcoming visits, as the schools and libraries got hit pretty hard. A lot of damage to books, shelves, and more.

We want to fix this. So we’re putting out a call– teaming up with Lisa Coley at Trask Middle– to donate books back into this area and give these students hundreds of new reasons to be excited to come back to newly stocked libraries. Here are the requests:

  1. Please donate new/like new books.
  2. Please donate young adult and middle grade books only.
  3. When possible, hardcover books are appreciated.
  4. Authors with extra copies of their books, please send in!
  5. If you have some new YA/MG book you’re excited about? I bet some kids would be thrilled by it to! Consider sending their way

Books can be mailed to:

Scott Reintgen

405 Village Loop Drive Apex, NC 27502


Attn: Lisa Coley

Trask Middle School, 2900 N College Rd, Wilmington, NC 28405

ALL BOOKS WILL GO TO KIDS. Trask Middle will process all the incoming gifts and if they get duplicates, they’ll pass them on to other libraries that were similarly damaged. Can’t wait to make a difference for these kids and flood their library with great new books! Thanks for being willing to help us out. If you have questions, ask below, or email me at scottreintgen@gmail.com!
