Boxed Set + Dry Ice!

In my post-tour slumber, I forgot to mention that the boxed set of the Uglies trilogy came out yesterday! You can buy it for about $26, and a little over $17 at Amazon. In addition to the delicious slip cover, it includes one special feature: a glossary of ugly slang and bubble-speak written by me.

But check this out: Justine and I went up to the Bronx today and met some awesome kids from the Gear Up program. On our way back, we ran into a dry ice spill on St. Mark’s Street!


Some delivery truck had dropped a bunch of frozen carbon dioxide (aka dry ice) cubes into the gutter, setting the rain water bubbling and boiling.

People should do this sort of thing more often.

  13. Hey Scott! It’s Olivia from the Fairfield reading today. I’m the one who asked how you got your 1st book published. You know how you said I might be too young to be looking for a literary agent? Well, I’m actually trying to get my 1st novel published. I’m sending my novel to an interested agent tomorrow. I meant to say that when you signed my book, but I forgot. Anyway, it was great seeing you and you were really awesome in person.


    PS. When I said what your picture looked like, I didn’t mean it in a bad way!!! I just meant that, well, it looks all mad and depressed, and you didn’t seem that way in person. SO sorry if it sounded offensive or anything. :\

    PPS. Say hi to Scooter for me. :]

  14. dude! a box set? that’s sick! i want it it! πŸ™‚

    oooh. a dry ice spill. people DEFINITLY should that more often FOR SURE

  15. hey all check this out from Publishers’ Weekly!

    And might those youngsters have the chance to read a fifth Uglies caper? Ò€œThere are no plans for more Uglies books now,Ò€ responds Westerfeld, who has begun writing a trilogy set in what he calls Ò€œan Edwardian alternate history.Ò€ But Uglies devotees should not despair. He is clearly leaving the narrative door open a crack when he states, Ò€œItÒ€ℒs possible that IÒ€ℒll do another sequel like ExtrasÒ€”in a new city, from a new point of view.Ò€

    That was said by Scott himself! w00t! We all must pester him to KEEP WRITING!


  16. Jason-la. i think its Jason-la. but if you like Jason-wa, i’ll call you that. just say the word!

    and Olivia-wa. how old are you? whats the book about. must be pretty good if an agent is “interested”.

    -Lizzy-wa OUT! πŸ˜†

  17. yeah olivia wanting to hear about a book…. im writing one to but like so not done…. you said somebodies interested….how come…what agent….yueah

  18. ooh i forgot im gonna be a “S”pecial for Halloween so im gonna put some pics up so yeah

    does anyone noe how i can get some photos up

  19. i’d read that interview before. and i say jason-wa, because everyone seems to be using la. no one likes the wa.

    and i agree. like steph-la and people, i leave for two hours and there’s a million posts that are just like “gtg” and stuff. i don’t need to know that! it makes it all hard to scroll through and catch up! i know i sorta did that above, but it was different there. but taking a ten minute break doesn’t matter when i’m just reading through it later and there’s a million consecutive posts asking if anyone’s here. people would be posting if they were here! they don’t reply!

    forgive the rambling. i’m gonna go do schoolwork now.

  20. oooh, i want a box set!!! *sigh* cept i already own every Uglies book… but box sets are so fun! the only box sets i have are The Chronicles of Narnia and a bunch of tv show seasons on DVD πŸ™‚

    dry ice! oooh, i need some! lol i can only imagine what i would do if i had dry ice…

  21. Lizzy-wa, you are my new hero for calling me Olivia-wa. Ever since I read ‘Pretties’ I’ve wanted someone to call me that. πŸ˜†

    I’m 13. But I think I’m mature for my age. (And modest for my age too. :lol:)

  22. Not to sound slow, lol…is the bookset only in paperback form? I want the hardcovers in a bookset! I can’t complain. xD Oh, anyone heard anything about casting for Uglies? Hope it’s open to the public!
