Let the Tantalizing Begin

Two quick things:

1. I think my payment on the email address I've always used for fan mail has run out. I can't login and I can't figure out how to contact the people. Plus, I don't want to. I never liked their system. So please discontinue emailing the address I had set up along the sidebar of the blog. It was author at (ya know, @) jamesdashner dot (ya know, ".") com.

I'll set up a new one very soon and get it on the sidebar. Meanwhile, don't email the old one, and if you have in the last day or so, I might not have gotten it.

2. I know you guys hate when I do this, but I just found out some very good news that I can't tell you yet. Anyone who follows this blog has already probably guessed what it is. Here's a hint: THE MAZE RUNNER sold to Random House as a one-book deal. I've always meant it to be a trilogy.

Have a nice day!

wait, are you saying you got rights to a trilogy! or am I missing something

LouMac said...

James, you shouldn't have done that! You know very well we can't wait when we know something good is in the air. You are going to have to tell us or us stalkers are going to have to flood your inbox with threatning messages. (just kidding!)

J.N. Future Author: email me, and we will figure something out. all you stalkers of James, email me at: lonniemcculloch 'at' gmail "." com. We need to do something good! Maybe he'll change his mind.

Oh! By the way James, you only did 2 this time! Way to go! That was a major cutback.

L.T. Elliot said...

Congrats, J.N. on first!

We don't HATE when you do that, James. We're just terribly impatient! We all speculate and snowball the idea in our head until we're seeing previews play across the screens in our head: "THE 13TH REALITY: coming to theatres this fall."

LouMac said...

Ahhhhh man!

I just realized I won't be able to go to see you at BYU James! I am going to a Bryce Canyon Quilting Retreat that is February 18-21. I had it planned for awhile. If I had known you were going to be at BYU, I would'nt have planned it. See? That is why you should tell us stuff waaaay ahead of schedule. You know, like this Maze Runner stuff, we might want to hear it now. Something might come up or something bad might happen!!!!

Come on James! Bring yourself to your senses! (How many do you have exactly? Just Kidding!)

See ya later James! Sorry I can't make it to BYU. :( (I am really sad!!!!!) :(

Hi James,

The review of "The Hunt for Dark Infinity" is up in the U.K.

I have not giving much away.

Let me know what you all think!


James Dashner said...

Loumac, dang! We'll miss you.

And I thought my hint made it pretty obvious what the news is. I sold ONE book to RH. I want it to be THREE books. I got very good news today.

Connect the dots.

Laura said...

Consider the dots connected. Congrats. This must be one of those days that calls for a happy dance. You give 'little' people like me (author wise...) hope. Hope and courage. Good on ya- as they say in Australia.

Heather Moore said...

Congrats, James! That's awesome!

I think MAZE RUNNER will be huge!

Ronda Gibb Hinrichsen said...

Congratulations! That is so tantalizingly amazing! Can't wait to hear about it.

James Dashner said...

Thanks, guys. Maybe we're safe talking about it in the comments! :-)

Ya know, more than anything, this shows that RH is making a major committment to me, which is just so awesome it's almost overwhelming me! Seems too good to be true sometimes.

GASP! If you're saying what I think you're saying... GASP! That is so cool!

Gmail is pretty awesome if you are thinking about setting up your account there...

LouMac said...

J.N. Future Author said...
