In the help forum, Meg said that the OT Meg's blog thread was deleted because it wasn't really OT. She said that someone could start another one here. So, I did!
Did anybody go to the readergirlz site Meg posted? I went there, and some of the authors they that are schedualed to chat sound really great!

October event= YALSA/Readergirlz 31 Favorite Authors Month. Meg's mentioned it on her past couple blogs. It's 31 YA writers, a new one every day chatting on myspace each evening.

I am! Epecially since Meg is going to be involved with the Mediator movie!
Is anyone else going to watch her on the Today show? I'm going to try to, but I'll have to tape it because when Meg says she's coming on I'll already be at school.

Lucky. I'm either going to try to tape it or home that someone puts it on youtube (that would be ideal...)

No there isn't. The only way is if you add her blog feed on livejournal, but she doesn't read those comments or anything.

This thread is the best thing you've got.

Hello, all!


I just couldn't help but want to post here...

...to say that I absolutely love the new picture of Meg that can be seen at her blog.


Shown Here:

Posted Image



Its nice to see the new picture. The other pic had been up for quite a while.




Congrats Erika!

My name was mentioned on Meg's blog on January 30th of this year. I was ecstatic. She had just turned 40 and wanted people to find examples of women who had done great things at forty or older. I sent something in, and she put it up.


I couldn't help but want to go find it again...

So here's what it said. LOL.

Meanwhile, Katherine says: In 1860, when Susan B. Anthony was 40 years old, all that she and Elizabeth Cady Stanton had worked for was secured by New York’s landmark Married Women’s Property Act except for one thing: the vote. Although she and Elizabeth Cady Stanton still had a long way to go, and wouldn’t in fact get the vote while living, I still think that this is a big achievement. Married women’s rights to wages, property, and the custody of their children in the event of a divorce was granted. Where would we be today if this hadn’t happened?

Thank you for reminding us of this, Katherine! Power to the ladies!



:P I am so proud... Ha ha ha.

My friend Lauren and I noticed that to. It was just a glitch. I think they updated the site with the Meg Cabot News feature and it somehow ended up on the blog. So if you go to the Meg Cabot News page, that was what was posted on Saturday.

For when the news came out, check out the new Meg Cabot News feature on Meg's site.

As for casting and all that, nothing has been mentioned other than the fact that it's been optioned. The script needs to be written first and then shopped around.

Hi guys,
I was wondering if I could ask a question, about the Seventeen's Writing Contest? Well, more about Meg Cabot's first half of the story. I'm not very familiar with fashion, and I was hoping someone could clear this up for me:

"Startled, I spun around just in time to see Natalie Ford, her Look Book tucked under one arm, steer one of her models past one of mine."

The "Look Book" is confusing me. Does the book she have tucked under her arm THE "Look Book"? If so, what does that mean? Is it a fashion book?

If I'm supposed to make this part up, as part of my story, I'm sorry for taking your time like this... as I said before, I'm not familiar with fashion. But I feel honored to be able to continue a story that Meg Cabot – MEG CABOT! – started. She's one of my FAVORITE authors.

Anyways, thanks for your time! :)

~Anna

I really love the video Meg uploaded in here blog today!

At first, I was wondering what song it was as I let the video load. But when I heard it. I was indeed, suprised.

Because I love the song too! I heard it at The Charlie's Angels Movie and I was quite suprised to see it there Meg's Blog. Though now, it's in a different scene.

I know this is wicked random, but does anyone know the name of the book Meg has recommended to people about getting published/getting an agent??? I searched her blog and everything but I didn't get anything other than "This blog has been taken over by Henrietta!"

Help? :)

^^ I found this in the Frequently Asked Questions section...

It is nearly impossible to get published these days without an agent. The guide I used to get mine was called the Jeff Herman Guide to Agents, Editors, and Publishers. It was well worth the money I spent on it, since it lists every agent in the business and what he or she is looking for. It also tells you how to write a query letter, what to expect from your publisher, and all sorts of good stuff...a must buy for any aspiring author!


Hope that helps.

^^^Just because you need an agent doesn't mean that you HAVE to be a full-time author. Meg didn't become a full-time author until she had like 10 books published. She had a job before then. So you can still keep your job and publish books on the side. No one's telling you that you HAVE to be a full-time author. An agent just helps you get your books published, and it's easier and more efficient to do it that way.

Where did you get the idea that you would have to be a full-time author because you have to get an agent?

Well, it just seemed to me that, if your going to spend time looking for an agent, you'd probably want to be a full time author. Sorry. My brain. :blush:

Also, I talked to my dad, who used to be an author, (David Seedhouse - he wrote books about ethics) and he said you don't necassarily need an agent. But I guess it might make things easier.

Speaking of clothes, my shoes didn’t arrive. Fed Ex evacuated, those motherchuckers. They better be here before I leave for my book tour or someone is paying for them to be sent to England and it isn’t going to be me.

Just wondering, but did everyone else find that to be funny, except for me?

Who is she? I have no idea! I just know that she is big celebrity over here in England


Or something like that...

And then -


I am so using that pose and that outift

I’m torn as to which should be the video of the week, so I’m leaving it to you to decide. Vote amongst yourselves on the message boards.


How am I the only one to debate the Miley/Spaghetti Cat videos?

Spaghetti Cat wins hands down!! Anything to do with The Soup just wins automatically.
