September can not come fast enough. I’m glad you, Holly, Cassie, and Maureen all conveniently spread out your book releases so us fans are not completely bereft of the peculiar heartbreak and hilarity you lovely ladies (each in your own ways)like to bestow on your long-suffering-but-always-adoring readers. That being said, are you going to be doing a US tour for the release of Untold, and will you have friends joining you like Cassie did for CP2? And if you do a tour, can you PLEASE come to the Midwest??? (P.S. how sad are you that the Lizzie Bennet Diaries are over?!?) — amusingmurff
Aw, thank you for the kind words!
We are always happy to both please and torment. ;) And the Bane Chronicles will be tormenting everyone for months to come…
Plus writing retreat and tour means I haven’t seen the Lizzie Bennet Diaries in ages, so I’ve lots to catch up on. Vampire Diaries and Walking Dead first, though…
I will not have a formalised tour or like, a bus, for Untold because… you know, Cassie’s really fancy. I point this out to her often.
Sarah: You’re so fancy. *pokes with finger*
Sarah: SO FANCY.
Cassie: Why must I be prodded because I am fancy?
Sarah: Just checkin’. *pokes* Yep. Still fancy.
HOWSOEVER, I do think I will do a FEW THINGS, and hopefully they will be with my friends. That is what I like, because I can talk about my friends and their awesome books. (Talking about myself and my awesome books, seems braggy!)
Also, I worry I will make jokes and everyone will just give me the fisheye. THE FISHEYE. With my friends we can talk and joke to each other, and others will talk and joke with us, and I have lots of fun. And I think book events should be fun! I always hope they are, for everyone who comes to one of mine. ;)
Also, there is always the worry nobody will show up.
This happens. It happened to J.K. Rowling: nobody showed up for her once (early on, obviously) and she spent her time drawing on a door. The bookshop has kept the door. It is called the Dumbledoor.
If nobody shows up and I am with a friend, we can just hang out. My drawing skillz are not that awesome. PLANNING! Otherwise I guess it’s just scrawling jokes on the walls…
BOOKSHOP STAFF: Madam please stop vandalising our walls.
But yes, I’d like to come over and do stuff for Untold. For one thing, m’friend Robin Wasserman’s super amazing THE WAKING DARK, basically YA’s answer to and improvement on Stephen King, is coming out in September along with UNTOLD and we were thinking we might do an event in Boston. ;) Hope to see some of you there!
For another, Holly Black and Cassie Clare and I are casting a weather eye over at Fair England…
So basically, WHO KNOWS what will happen in the future.
Aside from me watching lots of telly and always liking to be with my friends. ;)
