I love New England

A big thanks to the schools I've visited so far: Greenland School, Barrington Middle School, Woodbury School, and North Salem Elementary. You guys were all awesome!

Two or three schools cancelled. The Barnes and Noble CRM told me one of the librarians said she didn't want to be "bothered by that." I wonder what that lady will think when I'm one of the biggest authors in the country? (boo yah!) I just feel bad for the kids - we always have a ton of fun at my assembly.

I have today off to drive to Massachusetts (and a school cancelled). I think I'll go to Salem first and hang out with witches.

Speaking of Salem, I was in Salem, NH last night. The one night in the history of my life that I have a book signing in Salem, NH and it's the night Sarah Palin picks to rally in the same town. Well, no offense to her, but I didn't do so bad myself! Thanks to all those who chose me over her. :-)

Graveyard, New England, Autumn. Bliss.

A real lighthouse!

My feet, glorious leaves.

America's Stonehenge. Amazing. Google it.

Wow! I didn't know there was an American stonehenge. Thanks for sharing. I saw the one in England, but had no idea . . .

You messed up one of your captions, James. I think it should read:

"My feet, glorious!, leaves."

WHAT! that librarian was making the BIGGEST mistake in HER life. Your assemblies are so funny!

Thank you for the ARC! When I turned past your introduction, I was so excited to see what was written there! Thats going to make my day for almost a month!

Dang Dashner!
You don't even Know how homesick you're makin' me!! :) But it's aaall good. I'll have my chance to go back there this Christmas (I hope, I hope, I hope)

Just think, when I was a kid every autumn my mom would take us on those long foliage rides all over MA just to see the leaves, and they'd always involved feeding the geese and ducks.

You should definitely do some geese feeding whilst your there :)

Awesome! Keep havin' fun!!

Oh, and SO definitely try the apple cider!! Go pick some up at a nearby grocery store - it doesn't Touch what they got here!! :)

Beautiful shots!

Looking forward to getting my ARC but got something nifty in the mail today that had me pop over here. A teaser pamphlet for the first book - signed by the author. Woot!

I just might frame it. =P
