Raven Boys, Wales, & Friends

1. I’ve notified all the winners of the ARC contest — everyone who got a million notifications back about their entry, rest assured that it didn’t show you as having entered a million times. So I hope that didn’t give anyone an ulcer. I really wish I could send copies to everybody, but I only have a few. And also I wouldn’t be able to pay my mortgage. But I still wish I could. A huge thank you to everyone who shared my link online. I really, really appreciate you putting me on your online space.

2. I am in the UK having a grand time on tour — Wales was amazing, the folks at Writhlington School were amazing (although cheeky), Bristol and Bath and Windsor were amazing. And I’m just assuming that my Coventry event on Tuesday will also be amazing. Oh. It already is Tuesday. Well, I assume that will be amazing today as well.

3. Here is a video of Tessa Gratton, Brenna Yovanoff, Jackson Pearce, Natalie Parker, and the DMG all stuffed into the NYC apartment they shared with me during BEA. It may or may not be in precisely the same format as the Friends intro. Just saying.

    Haha, love the video. Looks like you girls sure had a good time together (isn’t it hard to share a small place with so many ladies? how many bathrooms did you have?)

    Love the part when the futon/couch fell over. So funny 🙂

    • Ugh, we had ONE bathroom. And it was as delightful as you can imagine, especially when we all had morning events to go to at the conference.

  • This video is full of so much win.

    Love the video 🙂

    I already tweeted you but NO FREAKING WAY. This video is PERFECT and I love life right now just because this EXISTS. (Also, I know you probably can’t answer this, but who is the DMG? Because he is fine. *ahem*) Thank you thank you thank you for making this flawless beautiful thing. I’m just going to watch it like five more times now.

    • Ahahahha! I’ll admit, I watched it quite a few times as well. And the DMG is Brenna’s husband. So his fineness is off limits.

  • Oh Maggie your hijinks absolutely kill me!!! This video just made my day!!!

  • Ha ha ha, I just died when the sofa fell over – that’s hilarious!

  • Emily

    Laughed so hard at this, I’m glad you can enjoy yourself with your friends so much!

  • HAHAHA! All you need are giant mugs of coffee to make it complete!

    Glad you had a blast!!!

    • Man, we never slept though. And not because we were partying. Because it was So. Loud. Outside. Two words:

      Bus. Stop.

    Great video and great fun! thnks for sharing 🙂

  • I spent a bit too much time Youtube-ing “Friends” intros to see if any matched up with yours. None did. For which my amazement for your version is only stronger. THAT is exactly what authors should be doing with their time.

  • Wow! Just saw the trailer for “Raven Boys”…intense! Can’t wait to read. Was lucky to snag an ARC at Book Expo and the trailer just has me more pumped. How can that be? Well, I AM! Glad you revisited this work and looking forward to the progression of the series.


  • This video is so funny! I almost died laughing when the couch tipped over (but ouch for you!) Plus, the people downstairs and next door must have loved you guys 🙂

  • Jess

    May I ask, are you guys the dark colored tabletop club?
