Longtime readers might recall that more than five(!) years ago, there was a big announcement about The Memory Thief getting made into a movie and getting a sequel. And then four years ago, I announced who I’d found out the screenwriters were. Since then, you’ve heard . . . nothing. And today, that’s not going to change that much, but there is *something* to tell you, and so I thought I’d let you in. The book was originally optioned by 21 Laps and Fox, back in the days before Fox was bought by Disney. Before that sale went through, things
It’s been a while since I checked in to update you all about my various writing endeavors. People often ask if I’m still writing, and the answer is always yes.

That’s the thing with foreign sales: I’ve already written the book, so it’s not like I really have to do any more work. Yay! Anyway, the cover for the book is finished, and I’m happy to be able to share it with you now. I speak no Chinese whatsoever, so for all I know the cover says “Bryce
You might think I have some sort of inside track to all the news on the film adaptation of THE MEMORY THIEF. And maybe I have a little, but today I was reminded how narrow that inside track really is. I’m a librarian, right? And that means I search things. Occasionally I search personal things.
