He's finally come over to the blogging side at The Dashner Dude, where he's chronicling the fascinating journey to his next novel, book 1 of a new series to be published by Shadow Mountain Publishing. Be on the lookout for The 13th Reality, Book 1: The Journal of Curious Letters next March 13th.
In one of his recent posts, James told how he finally made a great contact at the October 2006 ANWA writers conference. ANWA is my baby, so thanks, James, for mentioning us. Go read his story.
He was a great addition to the conference, by the way. His class on writing YA lit was terrific! I hear he also does great school visits, so if you're a teacher or librarian, contact him through his website.
