Long Ride Home

(blog title courtesy of Patty Griffin)

Wow, after 5 weeks of pretty much non-stop travel I get to be home for . . . well, for about 5 weeks before it starts all over again. And believe me, my desk is definitely showing the signs of neglect!

So while I spend the day trying to get it back into some kind of order, I will leave you with this video I made in the shiny new offices of my UK publisher, Macmillan.

Have a great day, everyone!

Hi Sharon- Thank YOU!! As for Riley, well, yes, there's a very good chance you'll get to see her again, at some point, in The Immortals books--though you can always see her in Radiance and the rest of her series!!

hey alyson- i have a question. you inspired me to be a writer soo much, really. I figured that i cant just stick to one type of genre- i want to...branch out in my reading, if you will. haha. I'm twelve years old. would you reccommend any books for me?? ive heard in interviews you like Judy Blume, but im not sure....any suggestions?????
-Sara :)

Brittany Roshelle said...

Alyson: Hello! My name is Brittany Roshelle and I interviewed you for The Smart Chicks Kick It tour event in Cincinnati, OH.

I will be posting the interview next week and I wanted to thank you for giving me the opportunity to interview you during such a busy tour!!

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Sara- I'm a huge Judy Blume fan for sure, but have you read any books by Rick Riordan, or even Jeff Kinney? There are so many great books out there right now, just head for the store and look around! All the best on your writing!

Alyson Noel said...

Brittany- Oh, cool--let me know when and where to find it so I can stop by! :)

Unknown said...

Hey Alyson- thanks!! Oh, and I saw that you like the book The Curious Incedent of the Dog In the Nighttime- I was just about to read that- i hope its good! thanks again -Sara

Kenzie said...

I love that Dark Flame Cover!!! and i really think The Immortals series should become a movie.

Alyson Noel said...

Sara- That's a really good book--it's written in the first person perspective of a kid who has autisim, so it's an unusual look at the world and what happens around him--the author did an amazing job!

Kenzie- Thank you so much, I'm hoping to have some exciting movie news soon . . . fingers crossed!

Unknown said...
