Meg's Blog

Special note to UK and NYC residents

Shout out to my UK and NYC readers!

UK readers–Check it out! I have a brand new, never-been-published-anywhere-else-before book out today EXCLUSIVELY in England! It's this:

According to my UK publisher, “this jam-packed princess-fest is essential reading for all fans of The Princess Diaries series – as well as every cool girl who wants an annual for the year ahead! It contains tips on everything from beauty and fashion, to how to save the planet, to planning the perfect princess party – plus princess-themed puzzles, quizzes and lots of illustrations! It also contains an hilarious, exclusive story: Sweet Sixteen Princess.”

I'm not totally clear on what an “annual” is…but they sent it to me, and it's kind of like a magazine…only it's a book. Like a YEARBOOK. Anyway, it has tons of cute Princess Diaries trivia in it and stuff. Highly recommended for readers of that series (plus for overseas readers, this is the only form Sweet Sixteen Princess is going to be published in).

Also new in the UK today:

Princess Diaries 7, at last!
From my UK publisher: “Doesn't a nearly sixteen year old deserve a break? Apparently not. Not only has Mia made a total ass of herself dancing with J.P. (a.k.a. the Guy Who Hates It When They Put Corn in the Chili), trying to prove to Michael that she's a super-chilled party girl–she's also bankrupted the student council. Way to go, Princess! Just as Mia's scared that she's lost Michael and a ton of money, Grandmere steps in with a fund-raising plan. She's going to stage a musical in front of the world's hottest celebs – and the star will be none other than Mia, cast as her fearless Genovian ancestress, Rosagunde! Mia would rather eat her own crown than tread the boards. But Grandmere is an ace blackmailer, and her secret scheme will ensure that Mia does exactly what she wants …”

I hope you'll enjoy Princess Diaries 7!

And also….

Mediator 6, in the UK at last as well!
“Suze should be on cloud nine. She's going out with Jesse, the most gorgeous ghost of all time. But, her fellow mediator, Paul Slater, wants Suze all to himself, and he's hell-bent on making the happy couple ancient history. When creepy Paul threatens to travel back in time and stop Jesse from dying, Suze is seriously spooked. Her boyfriend has a ghost of a chance to live again – but it would be without her. So, what will Jesse choose? Life – or love?”

Some of you may be asking yourselves, “Why do Meg's books come out at different times and with different covers in different parts of the world?”

That is because I have a different publisher in each country, and so they make up their own publishing schedule, covers, and even titles!

Do I mind? Heck no. So long as they keep on selling my books for me….

NYC residents, don't feel left out–I have something for you as well!
I'll be speaking and signing in New York City (well, Brooklyn, to be exact) this weekend!

I'll be leaving around 4PM, so be on time! Otherwise, New Yorkers can come see me here !

In other news, it turns out it's true about Bridget Jones (see last blog entry), Suri Cruise really does exist, Paris Hilton got arrested for drunk driving, Kathy Griffin is dating a major she met in Iraq, and the airlines lost my suitcase (but delivered it 26 hours later)!

Is this the quickening? Stay tuned to this blog to find out!
