With basketball in the air, I figured it was high time I get back on here and blog. I don't really have a whole lot to say because not much has happened other than working my hiney off to write and edit these here books.

I want to say that my heart goes out to Japan, especially any of my readers there. I actually lived there for awhile, and so this has been especially numbing and heartbreaking for me. I love the people there so much - they are kind and intelligent and grounded like no others I've met. And they'd do anything for those in need. Which is why I know they'll pull through this.
As for me, like I said, I'm basically just in a time of working. I have a whole month before I travel again, when I'll be heading out to Austin for the huge Texas Library Association's conference. And then a few scattered things after that.
We've had some recent sales of rights in foreign lands, which always gets me really excited. The latest places soon to be subjected to the rigors of the Glade are:
I would make a joke about that last one, something about Dracula and Thomas kickin' it with a Griever, but that'd be stupid and way too obvious. And an insult to our new friends in Romania, who I'm sure get very sick of that sort of thing.
Hmmm. What else has been happening. Not much.
Well, I did go on a cruise for the first time. And that was pretty cool. And I did have an incredible time at LTUE, where I got to hang out with many of you. And I did make a ridiculously silly appearance during Brandon Mull's launch party presentation for BEYONDERS. And I did save this old lady from getting hit by the Oscar Meyer Wiener truck. Ok, that last one isn't true.
Other than that, I'm just working, on lots of fun things. Stay tuned, because we ARE getting very close to revealing the cover for Book 3, THE DEATH CURE (release date, October 11). As well as some other announcements.
And a quick shout out for a friend: A very happy happy birthday on Saturday to Sam Van Hoose!!!!!
Talk again soon....
