Well, the bad news is that I can’t announce contest winners yet. Not because I don’t want to, and not that there are no winners, but because the producers would prefer I wait until the deal is all signed, sealed, and delivered. Sorry for being naive, but I didn’t think it would take this long.
But I will say that many of you have made excellent suggestions for casting, including Emily Browning, who I was already thinking about (but for what part? I can’t say). And one of you has actually got the producers right, but not the book. None the less, that person will win a great big signed author’s copy of whatever you want. (But, frustratingly, I can’t tell you guys who this lucky winner is yet.)
In the meantime, I can announce that Uglies and Peeps have been been chosen as School Library Journal best books of 2005. I’m very pleased about that, and would like to thank SLJ for all the support they’ve given me over the last two years.
I’m in Melbourne right now talking to school librarians, and next week we move into the new apartment, so I won’t be posting as much. But hopefully by the time we get internet access sorted out at the new place, I can share all the great news with you.
In the meantime, keep making casting suggestions. I can tell you that the producers are reading this blog . . .
