Hi there, Evs and Nevs!
Today’s a bit of a gloomy day in NYC, which I like a lot, actually. I’d like it even more if we had a proper storm with torrential rain. Do you enjoy bad weather? I don’t want it to be that way all the time, of course, but I definitely love staying in when it’s storming out.
The main downside is that I can’t go outside to read and work, but there’s always a trade-off with these things, isn’t there? Speaking of, I’m impressed by how much you guys read! You mentioned some hefty books in the comments for my last entry. I try to strike a balance, since I’m usually working through several books at the same time. Do you guys do that? Or do you prefer to focus on one book at a time, like sensible people?
Also, I’ve discovered that a surprisingly large number of you read this blog during school! I’m not saying I support not paying attention during class (if that’s what’s happening), but… I totally understand. For me, visits to the library for research also often involved a sweep of my favorite Harry Potter sites. This was before schools started blocking stuff on the Internet, so we had free reign to do a LOT of off-task web-surfing.
Anyway, a few brief things for you guys:
– The Meme Contest is closing tomorrow (Monday) at noon. You still have a bit of time to submit something if you haven’t already! I’ve been looking over what’s been submitted so far and your entries are so good. You never fail to make me laugh when it comes to contests like this!
– Tedros Thought Bubble Contest participants, we haven’t forgotten about you. If you live in the U.S., in June we’ll be sending you your awesome prizes: posters for Book 3!!
– Keep a weather eye out for Soman’s BEA and BookCon schedule. If you’re in NYC, he’s going to be speaking on panels and signing books and it’s going to be loads of fun. (I’ll be there too.)
– We sent out the Taylor Swift scrapbook a while ago and I just heard that it finally made it directly into her hands. So exciting! I know you guys worked hard on your amazing art for her, and I’m thrilled she has it now! 😀
And on the subject of Taylor, have you guys seen teasers for the “Bad Blood” video?? They’ve been dark and kind of gritty and very intriguing. This is the poster featuring the femme fatale herself:
It looks like everyone she’s friends with is going to be in it, plus some. I’m excited — “Bad Blood” is the perfect song for a cinematic music video, and I hope they’ve come up with a huge, dramatic story to go with the song. Taylor as the tough-as-nails criminal at the head of an all-female mafia, please.
Today I’ve got another SGE website teaser for you. As you already know, everything we do — from editing the book to restructuring the website — involves a massive team of people. For EverNever TV, we’re bringing 0n one person in particular that we’d like to introduce to you now. Meet Ramon:
He’s a mischievously brilliant Never (quiz-verified), which makes him the perfect person to balance out our strong Ever tendencies. Working with him has been a blast so far! He’s going to appear on the show regularly with Soman and me, in addition to helping me with a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff. We want you to get to know him, so feel free to ask him questions!! On the show we’ll be doing rounds of Q&A, in which he’ll participate.
That’s all for now — have the loveliest week, and here’s your song of the day:
