Hollywood, Here I Come!! + a Writing Challenge

You may have seen rumors floating around twitter and fb last week, but I'm ecstatic to verify that YES, Delirium has been optioned for film by Fox 2000!

Fox 2000 also optioned Before I Fall last year, so you can imagine how thrilled I am to be again collaborating with a studio that has shown me so much love. And I'm also a total fangirl of their movies and their uber-literary taste.

In celebration of this wonderful news, I'd like to host an LA-themed writing challenge. This week's prompt:

Write a 200-300 word submission that includes the following sentence: "The thing they never tell you about Hollywood--it may be the city of dreams, but it's also the city of nightmares."

You know the rules, people. Send your submissions to me laurenoliverbooks@gmail.com.

YEAH! Wait - what are the rules to the writing contest exactly? =)

Awesome news. I'm just about to sink my teeth into Delirium...Nom. Nom. Nom.

YAY! I'm looking forward to the movies for BEFORE I FALL and DELIRIUM :D

When is the deadline for the writing challenge?

I usually repost within about a week, so that is the deadline I guess! (We're kind of informal 'round here) :)

Yay! I'm so happy for you! I hope 'Delirium' becomes a movie... and of course, 'Before I Fall', too. Those are my two favorite books EVER.

Congrats!!! I read both of your books back to back and loved them. Congrats to you and I will anxiously awaiting the movies!

Delirium was a fantastic book, but heartbreaking. I cried - but that was the best thing.
You're a fantastic author, i want to learn to write just like you.
