Book Tour Thanks

Thank you to everyone who came out to meet us on the unRequired Reading tour, and thanks to Hyperion/Disney and all of the great bookstores and event coordinators for putting it together--it was more fun than anyone has a right to have.

And thanks especially to my fellow authors/touring partners, who in addition to writing wonderful books were just all around spectacular, funny and wonderful people. If you didn't catch us on the road, the books and their respective authors are:

Tweet Heart - Elizabeth Rudnick
The Half-Life of Planets - Emily Franklin and Brendan Halpin
The Ghost and the Goth - Stacey Kade
Carter's Big Break - Brent Crawford
A Field Guide for Heartbreakers - Kristen Tracy

If you haven't checked out their work yet, what are you waiting for?

Hey ^o^
did you forget me TT.TT? I used to comment a lot on your blog, but I haven't in awhile. Okay so first of all, I was in Japan when Passing Strange came out .-. so I couldn't buy it there XD but anyway I got back home and was flooded with summer ap assignments. Not only that but I was nursing the wound that taking out too much yen did to me, so I still hadn't bought a copy of your book. So I thought to myself

"You are the worst kind of person! To comment on Daniel Waters' blog if you haven't even read his latest book *goes to crying corner*" So yes TT.TT that was my thought process, but rest assured! I read it this whole time (your blog) D: just never commented. By this point you may be thinking, well why comment now? The answer: no I have not read it yet, BUT I just bought it today ^o^ and am about to start reading it ( I love it by the way)....I haven't read it, but I know I will love it :D and even though I haven't begun... I just couldn't hold it in anymore and commented ^o^

Also I didn't see you on tour TT.TT if only you would come to Arizona next time (hint hint)

and another thing :O are you still working on Shiny Happy People??

I just finished Passing Strange, which I had been waiting a loooong time for. Loved it. You may have saved the YA genre. Can't wait for the next one.

Hey, Dan. More blog please. Or maybe you should join Twitter. Still having tour flashbacks. You are one of the funniest writers I've ever met. Hope we get to do it again next year! And seriously. More blog please.
