Hello everybody! To those in the areas affected by Hurricane Irene – I hope you are all ok! I was very anxious overnight since Thea lives in the area as well!

Anyways, down to business!

    I am . . . a bit flummoxed by the name of their group. My very recently defunct YA writing group had the same name. Explains why we’ve had a whole bunch of people subscribe lately despite not updating.

    I am clearly, an idiot. It should be Interrobang YA not The Interrobangs! Phoebe, I wonder if I had your group in mind when I was writing this post. Apologies to you and to the Interrobang YA folks. Edited.

    Oh, no problem at all, Ana! I think the name is confusing anyway (I’ve had people ask me if I’d started a vlogging group). If we were still active it would be more problematic. I just put a post up on our website directing people to the right place; hopefully that will quell any confusion!

    Phoebe: I wondered whether there was some affiliation with your group. It IS a pretty exciting name.

    And I attended the University of Awesome. How’s that for another astonishing coincidence? I double-majored in Gaming and All-night Inebriated Philosphizing!

    Thanks for mentioning InterrobangYA. When we decided on a name (it was the fourth suggestion) I Googled relentlessly and saw nothing writing related, so sorry for any confusion.

    I am so ready to read Ready Player One. I can’t wait to buy it!

    Thanks for posting the teaser video! πŸ™‚

    Also I’m so pumped for Ready Player One. I got a copy from Vine, but with the black and white cover that looks like a retro video game. It’s awesome looking.
