ARCs!!!

Look at this beautiful chunk of paper I got in the mail:

I love it! I can't wait for the hardback now. Just over two months to publication. I'll run a contest to win an ARC beginning Monday, since a lot more people seem to check in on that day. Be sure to come back and enter.

In the meanwhile, it's been a long time since I've mentioned the incredible book trailer that was created for MAZE. Has everyone seen it? Check it out:

Is the contest of the "Winner is determined by the person who has blogged about wanting to be BFFs with James Dashner/pimped him out the most on Twitter/Facebook" variety? Man, I hope so.

Dash,

Well, looks like I'm the 13th person to drool over the new ARC. Hope that's not unlucky for me. 0_o Not that I'm superstitious.

It looks soooo cool! Please have the contest as soon as possible! I definitely want to have the ARC! What I wouldn't give to find out what happens next!

Watch out for the wolves. You really gave us a GAH! >,< *facepalm* feeling at the end of book 1, you know. ^_~

Carrie Ryan said...

Finally ARCs! I might just have to put in a call to someone to get one of those -- been dying for it!

Brayden!  said...

Wow! I am SO excited to read it! I can hardly wait! :-)

Laura C. said...

I have kids coming into the library asking for the Maze Runner! I can't wait for the Scorch Trials! We are all looking forward to its release.

An Arc! That would be amazing!

Vanessa said...

I feel like I've been absent forever even though I haven't been...

Everybody, you must know that this is my arc. Mine. All mine...

Precious......

Jackson Porter said...

Nope, I co-own a site called www.thegladers.info, Dashner said it would involve owning a site.

Everyone knows its mine.


Anyway, Dashner, you still need to blog about 24 series finale too...

Eric said...

i hope i get it! been watching the site for something like thie since last year! i really want to experiance the awe-inspiring story behind the scorch, and the secrets it holds!

By the way, i have the maze runner, and i cant stop reading it! when i ended it for the first time, i knew there was, or was going to be, a second book. Good luck writing The Death Cure!

KM said...

Can't wait to read this!!!

Leesie Jones said...

OH MY GOODNESS! *hyper venilates* I really really really really really really really really really really need one. I neeeeeeeeeeed one.
If you need a good story to choose me, here it is:
Well, recently I was walking down the street when BANG! A guy with black-gloved hands grabbed me! (Did I mention I was in New York at the time?) He pulled me behind the brick wall and pushed me hard against the frozen cement. HE took a sharp knife out of his pocket and put it towards my neck. I didn't know what to do so i kept quiet. He then demaded that if I didn't give him an ARC of The Scorch Trials, he would hunt me down and murder me by hanging me by my toenails. Luckily, I got out alive. But you see, I need an ARC.

Okay, okay. Obviously, the story was not real but it proves to you how much I want an ARC. :)

starlight said...

Awesome!!! I'm sosososo excited!!

Vanessa said...

Hem, hem. Jackson, you will fail in your quest. I may be a thousand miles away but it will be ME who wins, not you.

Jackson Porter said...

No, no, Vanessa, in case you forgot, he named a character Jackson in his book.

Let's forget the part where Jackson dies, but,

see, I ME MYSELF will win this ARC.

And Dashner, just noticed that I read an ARC of the first 13th Reality, that's why it took so long for book 2 to come out.

Jackson Porter said...

Oh, Lula, I AM BFFs with James Dashner.

J.N. Future Author said...

Ah! It's so beautiful! ^.^

historygirl said...

Good deed for the week: I'm going through my kids bookshelves, cleaning out the books way too low for their reading ability (keeping some that they love though) and donating them to the local daycare. :) its a win, win!

Brooke said...

Book trailers should all be like this!

Nadsbcool said...

ok my good deed that i just did yesterday was i cleaned out my drawers and grabbed all of the clothes that either didnt fit me or i wont wear (which is A LOT of clothes) and donated them to charity. Im not really sure what charity because my dad took it. but either way it was a good deed! and i also gave a dollar to someone asking for money in the street. :)

danny said...

Is ben coming back...because his part in the ending really just...I DONT UNDERSTAND D:

and i hope people don't die in the "Schorch trails" ...sounds extremely childish,but idk people dying in the maze runner seem to have a stronger "death impact" on me than other books XD

Emma said...
