In October 2013, Welcome to Night Vale began presenting live shows which continued into 2014 with a West Coast Tour. In addition, it was announced during the episode "Auction" that in 2015 there will be a novel. Fink stated that "it's going to have all the characters and weird atmosphere that you want from Night Vale, with a brand new story that explores parts of Night Vale that we just haven't been able to get into with the podcast."
