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
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:
