James Dashner Scorch Trials Release Party

13 Oct, 2010 by in Heather Gardner Photography, maze runner, scorch trials 27 comments

Last night was another fabulous release party hosted by The Kings English for James Dashner’s new book “The Scorch Trials,” book two in his Maze Runner series.

We learned that:

Thrive magazine announced The Maze Runner has been optioned by 20th Century Fox. They are currently writing a screenplay and selecting director for the movie. He hopes Robert Pattinson or Zac Efron play Thomas (LOL!)

The author that most inspired James is Dean Koontz, whose style he tries to emulate. Fast paced, short chapters. And the book Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card is his favorite book of all-time.

A very big player in this book “The Scorch Trials” is a certain disease called the Flare. He had to do a lot of research on the brain and viruses.

There is a thing in the second book called “Flat Trans”, very advanced technology

He is currently working on three series, including “The Thirteenth Reality”

Also in attendence were YA writers and member of “The Six” Emily Wing Smith, Bree Despain, Brodi Ashton, Valynne Nagamatsu, author Nichole Giles and book blogger Maw Books. Special thanks to James for being so kind to us and teaching my oldest not to use the word “fart” in public. He has a new little fan!

We are giving away a signed hardback copy of The Scorch Trials to our readers.

Photography Friday- The Iron King

13 Aug, 2010 by in Heather Gardner Photography, the iron king Leave a comment

Iron Horse

“It was as big as the horses that pulled the Budweiser wagon, but that’s where the resemblance ended..” p. 219

“…Its body was made of iron.

Pistons and gears jutted our from its ribs. Its mane and tail were steel cables, and a great fire burned in its belly, visible through the chinks in its hide.” p. 219

Pack Rats

But then a familiar creature scuttled across the tracks, vanishing into smoke. I caught a glimpse of a tricycle poking up from a mound of junk and frowned. “Why are the pack rats following us?” p. 298

Today’s Photos are based on the book The Iron King by Julie Kagawa, Book One of the Iron Fey. When I read Julie’s book a few months ago my mind came alive with vivid images and
I created a Flickr photo gallery with other people’s photos I found that I liked here :
Now I have some of my own, which I took last weekend in Utah and Montana. Hope you enjoy!
View them on Flickr here: or purchase them on Etsy at LittleredReads Prints are $15.00 for an 8×12. Other sizes are available upon request.
