Well. This is Pretty Much Perfect.
Today I was driving back home from signing Raven Boys pre-orders at Fountain Bookstore, and the mountains were looming attractively all around the interstate, and the sunset was smiling ferociously over the top of them, and the car was charging tremendously fast beneath me, and I was playing 80s music because, why the hell not, and I thought to myself that my current life sure did compare rather favorably to my childhood dreams.*
P. S. New Line/ Warner Brothers just optioned The Raven Boys’ film rights, with Akiva Goldman producing. And if Akiva’s name sounds familiar, it’s probably because he was a writer for Fringe, Angels & Demons, I Am Legend, and Cinderella Man, and producer for yet more awesome like Constantine, A Beautiful Mind, and Da Vinci Code.
*thank you, readers, for that.
