GHOST news!

I mentioned yesterday that I got to thank Justine Larbalestier in person at BEA--what I was thanking her for is the wonderful blurb she has given GIVE UP THE GHOST:

"Megan Crewe's GIVE UP THE GHOST is a beautiful debut that deals eloquently with bullying, loss, and how to cope when your only friends are ghosts."

(Because of limited space on the book cover, she also gave a shorter one for there: "A beautiful and moving debut.")

My first response when I found out was something inarticulate like *squeeeee!* :D I've been a huge fan of Justine's ever since reading MAGIC OR MADNESS shortly after it came out (back then I subscribed to Booklist, and I remember reading their review of MoM, thinking it sounded like an awesome premise, and adding it to the top of my to-read list. And it was even more awesome than I hoped!) so it was an honor even to have her read GHOST.

As I also mentioned yesterday, I've already read Justine's newest book, LIAR, which should hit stores just a couple weeks after GHOST in September. Let me just say, start reading it when you have a nice block of time, or you will find yourself neglecting responsibilities and missing appointments because you absolutely cannot stop reading until you get to the end--it's so gripping and full of twists and turns.

That is so cool!!!

(One of the reasons I'm so excited about ALA is all the new books I'll get to review for the other website...of course, I'm still catching up on all the books from the last ALA -- but you probably realize yours will be one of the very first I do :D)

Thank you! BTW, did you see GHOST ARCs at the last ALA? I asked my editor about conferences and she said the GHOST ARCs probably wouldn't be available at any more (so I don't think there'll be any at the July ALA). I know it was at TLA but that's the only conference I'm sure of.

No, it wasn't at the midwinter -- I'm not sure you had the cover art by then. I'll be bummed if it's not at July's conference -- but I'll probably live till Sept :)

Well, maybe it'll be there, then. I have no idea how these things work! :)

I picked up Liar but it's coming in the box of books I shipped. Hey, I saw you at BEA, but was in line at the time for Catching Fire and, obviously, couldn't leave the line. Sorry I missed you:(

Aw, that's too bad! Next time! :) I can understand not being able to leave that line.

That is so cool! And those are lovely blurbs. :-)

Thanks! I'm all giddy about them. :D

NIIIICE! Justine seems awesome based on her blog. Little known fact: I was the creator of her wikipedia page! ;)

She IS awesome! She started talking about how much she liked my book after I thanked her and was so enthusiastic about it that I felt much less nervous than I had walking up. :) Very cool that you did her wikipedia page!

Yayayay! Well, it is an awesome book so the accolades are totally deserved. :)
