In my first and second books, Lasting and Forever, too much stuff was happening to be captured by one character's pov, although its mostly coming from Nix, the main character's pov. Will switching it around through different characters be too confusing for readers?

You can have several characters with povs. Lots of great books do. My own Midnighters is like that, so don't worry. Just make sure that all the povs are distinct. They all need their own voice.
o yeah.

Are you someone who likes to listen to music while you write? (Sorry, I'm sure this question is asked like 40 times a day...)

Got some questions for the Uglies Movie. When's it coming out? I know it's 2011, but what's the date? Are there already actors? Can there be audidtions for ANYBODY, (like fans) for parts like Tally and Shay?

Well?

I have no idea, but it may not come out 2011. There is NO SCRIPT YET (that I know of).

As you can see, I don't know much. The best thing to do is to get a Google alert for "uglies movie" or something, or get a theatrical agent. (Again, I don't know how to do that, but I bet the INTERNET does.)

Does your wife actually have a degree in Egyptology?


Um, no. Her doctorate is in semiotics (look it up). But yes, I do have to call her "Dr. Larbalestier."

I am wondering if the Rix Commondo " h_rd" was a prototype of Dr. Cable?
h_rd seems very Icy ...


Hmm, they are kind of the same. I do like my sort of detached characters, who try to keep everything in their brains at once and are super competent, maybe a bit scary.

Well, I can listen to music at a cafe or whatever. As long as someone else is in control. But not in my own house, because then I'd always be trying to figure what to play next.

Who was the most interesting character for you to write about in Uglies?
