Bogus Release!

Bogus to Bubbly: An Insider’s Guide to the World of Uglies is out today!

Bogus to Bubbly is somewhere between a giant FAQ and a vast blog post. In it I try to answer every single one of the most common questions that I’ve been asked by fans over the years. It includes the following sections:

An illustrated hoverboard manual!
Notes on the science of beauty, mag-levs, and nanos
A History of Tally’s world, starting with the Rusty Crash
Maps of Tally’s city and her continent
Illustrations of various gadgets from the books
A complete series glossary, plus an essay on slang generation
Mini-histories of all the cliques
Character names and how I came up with them
Where I got the big idea for the series

You can buy Bogus online at Amazon, Powell’s, or Barnes and Noble. Or at bricks and mortar bookstores everywhere!

I hope you enjoy it, especially because it’s dedicated to a whole bunch of you who read this blog.

Also, thanks to all of you who voted for Extras in the ALA’s Teens’ Top Ten for 2008. I’m at #8 on the list, with some pretty impressive company.

And finally, we hope we see you in Toronto:

  6. im so mad! i wanted to buy B+B but im like broke now that i spent on summer $ on my new mac, and now my dad doesnt want to buy it 4 me- he wants me to wait till its in the librarys!!

  7. i just finished reading the book!
    it was amazing i loved knowing all the insight on details from the books. i thought it was really bubbly to have all those people in the beginning. i think i might re-read all of them to see how the story is different now that i know more about it.

  8. I just bought Bogus to Bubbly at my schools book fair today. As soon as i got home i cracked open the book, and in 2 hrs i was done. It gives you amazing in depth details about events and people in the book. It has given me such a better understanding of the whole series that i’ve started reading Uglies again. Buy it, because you wont be dissapointed!!! πŸ™‚

    Well, anywho, I got it yesterday (my neighborhood bookstore closed so I had to wait to go into the city) and I found my name, and I got so excited and started blabbering nonstop to all my friends at school, so they all hate me now because I was in a book and they weren’t! Thanks, Scott-la!

  15. I’m so bummed…I thought I’d replied to at least one of those posts, but I guess not….would have been cool to be in a dedication lol. I’m so excited this book finally came out though!! Scott, you’re so awesome to dedicate it to fans!!

  19. Can i get this book at my local borders? I searched at my book fair for it but i couldent get it.. it was too expensive so i missed out on it. Is there a chance it could be in borders?

  25. When you are gathering your estimates, make sure that any contractors you contact from out of your area will be available and on-site as the pool is being built. Having the contractors visit your home before they provide you with an estimate will also help you to get a more accurate estimate. When the contractor visits your home, they will be able to see if there are any potential issues with the ground or access to your backyard that will need to be included in the estimate.”
