eeeehhh new book *happy dance* and it sounds awesome already (the chapters on parasites in peeps were my favourite part and I would just like you to know that my highschool's english 11 exam had the chapter on toxoplasma as one of the readings. I almost passed out with shock and excitement when I saw it on the test booklet :P)

As everyone else is probably dying and wanting to know, what can you tell us on the progress of the Uglies movie? The last update we heard was that a draft of the script was being turned in at the time The Hunger Games had been released (:

Brazil is looking foward to meet you in November. Are you going to just be only signing books or are you preparing something else?

Hello. First off, Iím really enjoying reading the Uglies series. I recently finished reading Pretties and am looking forward to reading the rest! Thanks so much for a great story. 

During my reading of Pretties, I noticed that the story is fairly dependent on the fact that Zane and Tally needed to heat their metal interface cuffs in order to get them off. Youíve probably already had people point this out, but since metal expands when heated, the cuffs would have actually gotten tighter, not looser. Although, if they were heated enough that the metal became pliable, they could have come off that way. (If you want a more lengthy explanation, I posted one on the Uglies Forum.)

Iím curious, was this an oversight on your and your editorís part, or were Zane and Tally just a bit misinformed and got lucky when the metal got heated enough to become pliable?

Thanks so much!

How did you get your book published? Did you just summit the manuscript to a publisher or did you get an agent?

Scott!  I begged my way out of dinner with my grandparents for this 

They will forgive you. Protip: Grandparents always do.


Brazil is looking foward to meet you in November. Are you going to just be only signing books or are you preparing something else?

I'm doing some speaking about Leviathan. With slides!

So there will be a tour soon? 

Not till my next book comes out. Brazil is just now getting Leviathan (and Zombies vs. Unicorns) so Justine and I are going down there.

Also, what';s the scoop on Shay's Story 2?

Comes out Dec 4, 2012. Six weeks-ish!

Any hints as to upcoming books? You haven't been very active in terms of publishing since Goliath.

Yes, I have been lazy. Taking a brain-break, kind of.

Coming to DC anytime soon, Scott-la?

Alas, no.

Also, can you give us any more details on the possible Midnighters TV show??? (I seriously like flipped out when I saw that post. I think my mother is a little worried with my sanity )

I don't really know much. But I will blog when I do. I have started watching Chuck (those guys' latest show) and it's pretty good and quite funny.

Who are you voting for in the upcoming election?

Obama. (We have free healthcare for all citizens and residents down here in Australia, and it works much better than the US system.)

In addition to finishing your series of graphic novels, what other writing do you plan on doing?

See above! (The two interlaced novels.)

Scott, what makes you decide between titling your chapters, numbering them or both? what are the benefits for each?

Another question: Do you like the idea of Volger and Barlow being together?
