"This Guy Is A Master."

That's a quote from a family member. He was talking about another writer. Not me.

I have created a rabid Scott Westerfeld fan here in my own home. I picked up the audio version of Uglies for a car trip a week and a half ago. I'd already read the book, so I wasn't paying that much attention. But the guy with me went nuts. We couldn't finish the book that day, so he continued listening while going back and forth to work, and now he's maybe halfway through Pretties. He knows Reading Fool's library has Specials on CD. He has his commuting time planned for the immediate future.

I keep hearing about "Tallie this" and "Tallie that" and what "Dr. Creepy Person" said. "This guy is a master," my family member said of Westerfeld this afternoon. "He's done it all. He's created such a world."

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

I'm living with someone who's obsessed.

Sharp Cover

Scott Westerfeld has finished the first draft of Extras, the next book in the Uglies series. Get a load of the cover. And, while you're at it, look at the number of responses he got to that blog post.

I have that many readers, by the way. More than that many. You guys just aren't very vocal. I'm cool with the introvert thing.
