This is a display from my Brazilian publisher, Novo Conceito, at the Sao Paulo Book Fair, the world’s third largest book fair, going on now. Their way of showing how it is their BIG book of the year! I didn’t believe it myself but you can see the person in it, for scale.
The publisher sent me more photos of the fair today!
It’s such a thrill to think of teens all over the world reading STARTERS. I love getting the fan mail asking when are we going to see the movie?
If you understand Portuguese, here is an journalist leading a discussion about STARTERS with teens. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzU9kmlgLHQ
This is all so amazing. Muito obrigada, Novo Conceito!
That’s the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. Maybe they’ll give it to you!
Hah! I have nowhere to put it! It looks like it’s 12 feet tall. And shipping from Brazil…
Wow, that’s plain awesomeness! When will the next book come out?
The exact date has not been set yet, due to some good news that we cannot announce yet. I’m in the rewrite stage of it.
So, so great!
You MUST, of course, secure the big book. Someday — hopefully way, way, way in the future — it would make an excellent tombstone. Until then, it would redefine “coffee table book”. You could simply lay it down in front of the couch and voila! Furniture!
Everyone is telling me this. Not gonna happen. Do you see the size of that baby? I am just loving the Brazilian book people to pieces! 🙂
Reminds me of that old proverb, “If you can’t get a giant book, you might as well love the Brazilian book people to pieces.”
Oooooh!! It’s just amazing!! I’m brazilian and just fell in love with Starters!
I am so happy to hear that. Love my Brazilian readers!
Woah that’s so awesome! Congrats! :))
I was there and I bought your book, its perfect *-* Congratulations

Nice, isn’t it?
I’m from Rio de Janeiro and I can’t wait to visit the book fair
next year. This year it was in SÃ£o Paulo but next year will be
right here. It’s always like this, you know. So I can’t wait to
see you here! I’m reading Starters and loving it. I have a blog that’s
a Novo Conceito’s partner and as soon as I finish reading, I’ll talk about
the book and provide a giveaway.
Wish you the best, Lissa!
