today's the day!


Those of you who have been counting the days (and maybe that's a party of one, namely me) will be aware that
TODAY IS THE DAY WIRED HITS STORES!
(You can read an excerpt here, if you're curious.)

I've made my requisite tour of area bookstores to admire the pretty, I've bought myself a cookie, and I've miserably failed at getting any amount of work done.

I did, however, create this nifty little arts and crafts project:


Though I think it looks better full-sized, here.

(Incidentally, not to sound like a commercial, but I highly recommend this glogster thing - whatever it is, it's highly addictive, and I'm speaking as someone with no artistic skills or aesthetic taste whatsoever. So just imagine what the hypothetical YOU could do with it. As soon as you're done reading WIRED, of course.)

And now, I must leave you to go get some actual work done...or maybe a celebratory viewing of the Gossip Girl season premiere. 

It could go either way.

Congrats! Can't wait to read it - you know I loved the first two!
Hoping you opted for GG instead of WORK.

I actually bought it on Sunday at my local Barnes and Noble, which is weird? Amazon also had it listed as on sale (and not as a pre-order) on Sunday. But I finished today. It was amazing, astounding, and awe-inspiring though! And that's just the alliterative praise!

I'm so glad you liked it! I've been waiting FOREVER to hear what people think of the ending.

I really enjoyed the ending. My only "critique" would be that I wish there was more! There were so many interesting topics brought up in this book and I could easily read another trilogy entirely based just on some of the things you brought up in Wired, which I won't mention since some of them are spoilers. Maybe something for the 20-something set? (Wishful thinking. There doesn't seem to be a lot of literature specifically targeting my age group.)
It breaks my heart that this series doesn't get as much recognition as the Hunger Games trilogy (which I also loved) because I would argue that Wired was a more satisfying conclusion to an equally imaginative and well written series. So here's hoping that more readers come your way!

I sprained my ankle on the September long weekend, and my positive thought was "Well, I'll have plenty of time to read Wired." But I can't find it in any of my local stores (or rather, the family members I pestered couldn't find it) and my online order is taking too long for my liking to arrive.

Skinned
I just finished Skinned and I have to say that it had the most awful ending. I know that all stories can't end with a happily ever after, I get that. But this ending was just terrible!!!!!!!! I'm all for some drama but jeez!

I'm the author of several novels for teens, including HACKING HARVARD, the CHASING YESTERDAY trilogy, and the SEVEN DEADLY SINS series.

My newest book, SKINNED, comes out in September 2008.

Also, I like cupcakes.
