YET AGAIN I'm a few days away from a deadline and completely freaking out (which in this case involved running away to my mom's place on Cape Cod in an attempt to prune distractions) BUT! I wanted to emerge long enough to share a mini-update on what's going on with the Zuko!Prequel!

SO UH...you know, with these things it's impossible to say what will happen or what problems will come up until the books are printed and on shelves. But right now I'm pretty optimistic! We SEEM to have gotten the script through the approval process with only a few, small changes, and (fingers crossed) hopefully the same will be true for [livejournal.com profile] space_coyote's completely fantastic pencils. (seriously, I get little shivers of joy just flipping through these things. I feel like between her and [livejournal.com profile] yaytime I've won the Awesome Goddamn Collaborator sweepstakes.)

Dave and I wrote a book about Zuko being sent away on his tiny boat and struggling to find his place in the world and having adventures with handsome outlaws and sitting beside his uncle on hillsides while they talk about family and loss, and somehow we actually managed to shepherd the thing (INTACT!) through all the obstacles that invariably turn up with projects like this one, and OH MY GOD YOU GUYS I THINK IT MAY ACTUALLY BE OKAY? MAYBE?

Again: fingers crossed. I'm still ready for it all to collapse in on itself in a horrific black hole of awful. But I can't help but savor the little glimmers of hope.

So anyway...ANYWAY! I mentioned before that there's an Amazon page up already, which remains pretty great. But today I discovered that I apparently have an author page on the Random House website as well! Given that early on in this process I was usually left off of press releases and forgotten about in panels, it's all the more rewarding to have that dumb little page to open up and gaze upon like an idiot.

You guys.

YOU GUYS.

THIS MAY ACTUALLY BE OKAY.

I'm just waiting for someone to be like "WAIT SORRY WE CHANGED OUR MIND, WE DISAPPROVE OF HUGGING AND WISH FOR YOU TO REWRITE THE ENDING ENTIRELY TO REMOVE ALL REFERENCES TO HUMAN EMOTION."

(man man man I just seriously, Aja, DAVE AND NINA ARE THE BESTEST EVER. *___* )

I admit I'm not too thrilled about the movie in general, but I'm looking forward to read this! I always liked Zuko's tiny boat.

Also; adventures with handsome outlaws? HMMMMM why am I feeling all dej√° vu over here, I wonder. B)

I hope everything runs smoothly until the release!

Hahaaaaa well as you have probably gathered, I'm THE LAST PERSON to argue with you on the topic of this film and whether or not you should pay it any mind.

I'll just say that we kept this story as close to show!canon as we could, and that you won't have to have watched the movie to enjoy it as its own thing.

AND MAN I HOPE THAT, TOO! <3

I will tell you the same thing I tell everybody -- watch until "The Storm" and "The Blue Spirit" (they're back to back) and if you're not digging the show by then, it's probably not gonna work out.

(If it does? MAN ah gots some fanfic for you XD )

I know, because I know how much you do love Avatar...and Zuko, ha ha!
That passion will shine through. If you had fun writing, we'll have fun reading.

let me just say that DLFKJ THE TITLE OF YOUR POST REMINDS ME OF THIS VERY ICON.

Okay. This is so awesome. This is so awesome. I can't wait to order it, no really, I'm excited for you :) I know everything will be okay. See, if they turn it down, bajillions of your fans will turn up at headquarters and burn the whole building to the ground. They know what's at stake if they do :D

I knew it would be great.

For some reason I have unicorns on the brain and read this:

"...sitting beside his uncle on hillsides..."

as:

"...sitting beside his unicorn on hillsides..."

Because man, that would be great!

I'm so looking forward to this prequel. I've seen some of space coyote's drawings and they are amazing. With you writing our boy's story, it's sure to be made of awesome (let's just hope that no one wants to change your stuff).
