« Hardcover versus Paperback Redux
Going freelance, an embarrassing tale »
Me and Scott are in Houston for TLA (Texas Library Association). Tis much warmer than NYC. W00t! Also we’ll get to hang out with many teen librarians.1 Always a good thing.
Another w00t worthy thing: I have just learned that the ARC (advances readers’ copies) of Liar have made it to TLA. Yee hah!2 I have not actually seen it myself. So I’m eager to get my hands on a copy. Well, not eager so much as afraid. I know I’ll just open it up and go, “Crap. Typo. Also that section really doesn’t belong there. I need to move it. Another typod. Also I’m not sure this minor character’s got the right name. Perhaps I should have called them Rexford? What was I thinking! Crap. Yet another typo. And another.” Etc.
But I’m excited that people who aren’t my agent, friends, or publishers will soon be having a squizz at it. Liar is unlike anything I’ve ever written before and especially not like How To Ditch Your Fairy. Thus I am dead curious to see how people respond. I hope no one throws things at me.
Admin note: Sorry for everyone whose comments were held up in moderation yesterday. Wifi access was sketchy. I believe I have set everyone’s comment free at this time. Let me know if you still can’t find yours.

“Yee hah!” is indeed the canonical spelling.

I’d have to say “yee haw!” (And I was born in Texas, for what it’s worth)

I wish I could be there. I am excited about reading your Liar book when it comes out. I was just thinking of it last night when I thought of people in real life who lie.

I used to live in Houston, and we spelled it “yee haw!” *grin*

Hee! I have thought long and hard on the subject, and come to the conclusion that Rexford Tugwell is a perfect hedgehog name. Rexford Tugwell the hedgehog. It fits, doesn’t it? But I suppose the Liar book doesn’t have any hedgehogs in, so you’re probably okay with whatever other name you picked.
