1. Can you introduce yourself to my readers?
Hi readers of the very cool Dark Faerie Tales! I’m James and I’m the author of The Maze Runner trilogy and The 13th Reality series. I’m an author who used to be an accountant, so you can imagine how much I love my job now! It’s really fun to be a writer, and I love getting to know readers, fans, other writers, etc. So very nice to meet you!
2. Are there any special events, panels or galleys you are looking forward to?
I’m really looking forward to the children’s breakfast, the luncheon with ABA, and the dinner with ABC, as well as hanging out with my agent and editor. I can’t believe how lucky I am to get to go to all of these things. I also plan on swiping any and every galley I can find.
3. Will this be your first time attending BEA or are you a veteran? Any advice for those who are going for the first time?
This will be my third time, so I’m a very seasoned veteran. Haha. It’s so fun, anyone who can go should definitely do it. My advice would be to really study the schedules and make sure you have it all planned out where you want to be. And wear comfortable shoes! (but not JUST shoes because that’ll get you kicked out in a hurry)
4. Will you be doing an autograph signing at the expo? Any other fun stuff on your agenda?
I’m signing three times: Wed. at 9:00 in the Random House booth (THE SCORCH TRIALS teaser chapters), Wed at 11:00 in the main autographing area (THE 13TH REALITY Book 3), and then Thur. at 10:30 in the ABA Lounge (TST teaser chapters). I’ll also be at the events mentioned in #2, and walking around lots and lots and lots. If you see me, come up and say hi!
5. What other projects are you working on that you would like to tell us about?
My total focus the next few months is writing the third and final book in the MAZE trilogy. I can’t think beyond that!
Synopsis (Product Description):
When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. He has no recollection of his parents, his home, or how he got where he is. His memory is black. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade, a large expanse enclosed by stone walls.
Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning, for as long as they could remember, the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night, they’ve closed tight. Every thirty days a new boy is delivered in the lift. And no one wants to be stuck in the maze after dark.
The Gladers were expecting Thomas’s arrival. But the next day, a girl springs up—the first girl ever to arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers. The Gladers have always been convinced that if they can solve the maze that surrounds the Glade, they might be able to find their way home . . . wherever that may be. But it’s looking more and more as if the maze is unsolvable.
And something about the girl’s arrival is starting to make Thomas feel different. Something is telling him that he just might have some answers—if he can only find a way to retrieve the dark secrets locked within his own mind.
