Last Event of the Year, Book 3

Hey guys, really quick post today:

1. My last public event of 2010 will be on November 13th (Saturday) at 2:00 pm. It's a signing/Q&A and will be held at the Barnes and Noble at Jordan Landing in West Jordan, UT. If you live within 3 states distance, please come.

2. I got a lot of questions in the comments about when the third and final book (THE DEATH CURE) of the trilogy would be coming out. That book is currently in revisions and is scheduled to be released in October of next year. (2011 for those of you are date-tracking-challenged.)

3. Last, but not least: my Atlanta Hawks are 5-0 and my Atlanta Falcons are 5-2!!!!! And my Georgia Bulldogs are... Oops, gotta run!

I may have missed all of your other signings in Utah, but I'm determined to get to this one!

Jackson Porter said...

Grr, I AM coming this time! I'll pay my parents if I have to.

Yeah, Dashner, I still don't see Death Cure in my Inbox yet...

Kristina Barnes♥ said...

My mom won't allow me to drive to UT :(. Heck, she didn't even allow me to drive up to Nor. Cal for your signings in the Bay Area. Come south more! Give LA some lovin'. <3

Leesie Jones said...

Yeah, yeah Dashner, we both know that my mom won't let me drive up there. Considering my age and all....hitchhiking anyone?

Q said...

Too bad I'm four states away--that's my birthday. :)

Kathryn Packer Roberts said...

Hope I can make it to the signing. So...is the third book title based off of anything to do with the movie'What About Bob'? =)

Ben said...

Your Atlanta hawks won't be 5-0 when my timberwolves are done with them

Ben said...

By the way I'm psyched for The Death Cure

Laura said...

Within 3 states? Hmmm. Gonna have to think about that.

Matt Hayes said...

At the beginning of the year you, Dashner, told me you would probably know the title for Reality Book 4 in the fall.

Well, mister...it's fall.

Jen said...

I cant wait for the book!
Can you come to New England? none of my fave authors ever come here.

Michelle said...

I'm volunteering my sons as Beta readers!

Chris said...

Would love to stop in on the 13th but I'll be in South Bend for the Utah Notre Dame game. I'll try to catch you at another event. Along those lines, why aren't you in Apple iBooks? I went there looking for The Scorch Trials.

IM so excited about the next book... I just finished the first, thinking it was the only one. Let me tell you, the best sentence in it is END OF BOOK ONE, letting me know there would be more!!! I loved the Maze Runner!!! I wish i could be at your signing. Come up around Indiana and Michigan sometimes!! I gotta get the second one NOW!!! I loved the suspense and The Maze Runner left me wanting more!!! Keep on being awesome!!

Jackson Porter said...

Yeah, so, Dashner, I get to go up to the Scorch signing. I'm taking the front runner up there so I'm realy excited.

Kristen said...

I have to wait an entire year!? lol, that ending left me so confused, but I can't wait for the 3rd one to come out :)

Brooke said...

whhhhyyyyyyy???? i want to read it NOW (:

Hailee said...

I just finished The Scorch Trials tonight. I never expected it to be bigger and BETTER. I need more Thomas/Tersea and all that's pulsing through my head right now is "IS WICKED good?" Over and over and over! Congratulations on the book touring! Can't wait until 2011, next October is so far away.

Mr. Dashner,
I really like your books and just wanted to let you know I can't wait for The Death Cure to come out. Also, wanted to let you know that if you are ever here in Atlanta that my dad, Bob Bender, is one of the coaches for the Atlanta Hawks and that if you ever want to go to a game we would love for you to go with us. Also, if you ever want to go to one in the New York area we would love to give you our tickets for your family to go. Anyway, thanks...if you want to get in touch with us my mom says you can "Friend" her on Facebook (she doesn't want me to put person information in this) and she can give you our contact information. her name on FB is Alice Hunter Bender....
Thanks,
Trey Bender

First off, my brother and I LOVE the Maze Runner Books! I just finished reading Book 2 today, though my brother hasn't read it yet. I really liked it, I was worried it was going to be a repeat of the original but nope, you pulled it off! Just one question...what the heck happened at the ending? And now we've got to wait a whole year to find out? ARRRGGGHHH WHYYYY?! These next nine months are far to precious for me to waste waiting for The Death Cure to come out! How are we supposed to live our lives waiting!?

Jordan said...

I am a die hard fan of the maze runner books. I got each one the night each of the came out, went home read them, and was done in one night. The Scorch Trials was great. I am really mad at myself for torturing myself by having to wait. I always loved to read and really love it when you become so attached to characters. THis happened to me almost immediately when I read the first book. You are my idol and my inspiration. I was always really good at making stories and starting writing my own book. I am only fourteen but everyone tells me I am really good at making stories. I am a little upset though that this is only a trilogy.

omg another year?

i'm still deciding if this or harry potter are my favorite books.

Mary said...

My 12 yo son just finished Scorch Trials and is sitting here grumbling "c'mon! how long do revisions take anyway????!!!". He loved the first two, gobbled them down in a couple of days and is going to have a hard time waiting. Sounds like he is not alone!! Thanks!

Ana said...

I am very upset that this is only a trilogy also... i wish there were100 books in this series :)I cant get enough of Minho or thomas

cj herdt said...

I started the maze runner about two weeks ago and just finished the scorch trials about ten minutes ago. These are the best books I have ever read.

Dear Mr. Dashner, I am in fifth grade and I loved your first book it was soooo amazing.When I finished the first book I couldn't wait for the second one.
Last night I finished the second book it was suspenseful, crazy, and even more amazing than the first one.
Thank you for sharing your work with all of us readers, who crave books like yours.I hope you keep writing.I think that The Maze Runner series are the best books ever!!!!! THANK YOU!!!

Why did you have to leave me hanging like that!? AHHH this isn't fair, not one bit. I'm 15, and I'm so angry that WICKED has to keep lying to them that it's over and all that junk! how in the hell did Brenda get telepathy! and is someone going to come in and talk to Thomas or is just going to sit there and rot. -_-
This is what you leave me thinking about! and what happened wish Rachel? Did she really die? Or is she still alive, waiting to show up in some random scenario? Grr...
how you read this. :P
-Michael.

scariest part in the scorch trials was when Thomas and Brenda were in that little crevice in the wall, and they thought the cranks were gone, so they turned on the light and then the creepy crank leader was like "hello noses!"

OMMMGGGG that was so scary, my heart was actually racing... i got my friends to read that part to see their reactions :)

aaaahhhh i love these books!!! i wish i could write as well as you! being an author would be so awesome!
