It's been three weeks since I last blogged, but I tried to keep everyone updated over on Twitter as I was traveling about the country. You can always go there (CLICK HERE) to catch up on my little tweets.
I had a great time on tour. I went from Boston to San Francisco with several stops in between, and met so many amazing people. I wish I could give a million shout outs, but I'd hate to forget anyone, and I'm sure I would. But a big thanks to all of the literary escorts, teachers, librarians, principals, and bookstore employees who made things happen. Also, huge thanks to my publicists, Noreen and Emily, for arranging such a complex schedule.
Most of all, thank you to all the students and readers out there!!!!! It was just spectacular to meet all of you, and it made me feel on top of the world to see your enthusiasm for my books. Thank you thank you thank you. I'll never forget the experiences I had with you.
My publisher, my agent, and I are thrilled with how THE SCORCH TRIALS has debuted, and I owe thanks to all of you out there. Thank you. It has spent its first two weeks so far on The New York Times bestseller list, and is also a USA Today and Indiebound bestseller. THE MAZE RUNNER is also hitting the lists. So, needless to say, we're all ecstatic, and I'm very thankful to my readers for making it happen.
Now I'm back for a few months, ready to work my butt off. First up is revisions on the third and final book of the trilogy, THE DEATH CURE. I think you're going to be very satisfied with how it all ends.
Anyway, thanks again to everybody out there! I look forward to the next few months of working and keeping in touch with you here, on Facebook, and on Twitter.
And I'd love to keep hearing your thoughts on the sequel, so please let us know in the comments.
