James Dashner Forum

Okay, for months we've been toying with the idea of making a forum for all the faithful Duders. Well, we finally have our chance! Random House has their own forum website for its young adult authors, so this works out perfect.

It's called Random Buzzers. aka www.randombuzzers.com. There are a couple of links for my stuff on the main page.

All you need to do is register with the site (it's free) and then you can post, reply, whatever. They already have a section set up for us. (Beginning Sept 28th, I'll be doing a weeklong series of chats with the random buzzer members. But we might as well get things started!)

CLICK HERE to go to the section for my name. (You have to join and login before you can do anything.) I figure this will be a great testing ground to see if a forum is worth the effort. Duders, don't let me down! If you join, please leave a comment telling us your user name, and I'll give away a book or two.

That reminds me - Jenn, I know I owe you a book! And I never announced the winner from those of you who left silly comments over at Aprilynne's blog contest for my book. The winner is... LouMac!!! Please email me, dashnerjames, gmail.

Okay, we'll see how that goes.....

By the way, if you missed it, please go and check out the official website (www.themazerunner.com), which just went live on Friday. The online game is so awesome and addicting. Let us know in the comments if you're able to achieve all ten missions!

Lyrics of the Day:

You wear guilt
Like shackles on your feet
Like a halo in reverse
And when our worlds they fall apart
When the walls come tumbling in
Though we may deserve it
It will be worth it

Halo, Depeche Mode (Trying to give the young whippersnappers some lessons in music)

Alright Dash. Because of you, I just joined Random Buzzers. My username is PinkMagenta.

You're the one who inspired me to write a blog in the first place. Now you've made me decide to take the plunge and learn how to use a forum.

Can someone help me along the way? Like, what are you supposed to do?

I'll just be busy setting up my profile...

Hey James congrats on the forum.....My username is ................ NUMBERONEDASHNERFAN............. lol bet you never guessed that one...I would comment more but I have a ton of homework....

nkrell said...

Okay, I did it. My username is sanssouci.

Keep up the great work with the music! Danny Elfman is a genius! Oingo Boingo, Depeche Mode, OMD, Tears for Fears...you can't go wrong with any of those groups. (At least in my humble opinion.)

Hey! Just registered/registering. My user name is Garth! Very boring I know, but he will be known world wide threw my book! I just need to get around to working on it.

Christy said...

Username chee3. Looks fun!

Melony said...

Depeche Mode rocks! Gonna go register at the forums! October 6 is so close! woohoo!

shannon hale said...

the SH on the high score list is I. I wasted writing time on that game. It is addictive! No more, I say! I've no doubt someone else will bump me off shortly, if they haven't already.

James Dashner said...

Yay! Shannon Hale is addicted to my game and commented on my blog! The world is good.

Now stop playing and get back to work!

Epsilon said...

That game is nearly impossible. When I say nearly, I mean, "possible only with divine intervention." But it's so fun, it's worth it. It puts most other book promotional games to shame.

Can't wait for The Maze Runner!

Hey Dash!
It's me, DragonRider3195! I've just started following your blog! Once again, saying in short what I've been saying for a while now on RandomBuzzers.com, YOU ROCK!

LouMac said...

Wow! Thanks James! I can't believe I won. I haven't been able to get on in a while though, so I emailed you today...

P.S. I think you have the funniest lyrics and rhymes and stuff...

Dashnog: ateolot- The neighboring town to Camelot. It's where King Arthur was born...hehe! Just kidding!

The first question many people have about links london one way links is why are they so important.If you links of london compared two websites that had exactly the links jewellery same content but one of them had one hundred one way links versus none on the other site links of london uk you would see that the site with one way links had a much better cheap links of london ranking with each search engine. links of london bracelet The primary reason for this is there is no reason for one site links of london charms to link to another without a reciprocating link other than that links of london watches site determines that the website is an authority on it's given niche links of london rings A one way link is when a website links to another site without links of london necklaces asking for a reciprocal link back.
