I’ve Never Experienced This Before

September 9, 2011

The fans of Megan McCafferty‘s novel SLOPPY FIRSTS are wowing me. They are incredibly smart, funny, articulate, fun and passionate. I always knew this — heck, I’m one of them — but the outpouring of support, faith, thoughtfulness, and enthusiasm they’ve bestowed upon me and the Sloppy Firsts Movie Team is something I’ve never experienced before now. The onslaught of advocacy is due to the “Dream Casting Contest” we launched in celebration of the novel’s 10th Anniversary. The winners won access to the Director’s Video “Bible” we’ve created to communicate my vision for the film. Megan has been encouraging the winners (congrats to Karen G. and the 164 winning commenters!) to post their comments and notes to the exclusive video glimpse into how I see the movie.

The overwhelmingly positive reactions from the fans reminds me of what an honor it is to bring Jessica Darling and her story to the screen. There is great responsibility in this job, but the support from the SF community further ignites my great passion for doing the job with grace and mastery. I may not personally know the thousands of Sloppy fans, but I feel very connected to them and regard them as a community of wise, passionate folks who are by my side, cheering me on. I can’t wait to make a great film for them.

A Decade of Sloppy

August 3, 2011

August 28, 2011 is the 10th Anniversary of the publication of SLOPPY FIRSTS!

Throughout August, author Megan McCafferty will be announcing fantastic ways to celebrate her novel’s Anniversary. Start following her on Twitter or “like” her FB page and be in the loop on all her spontaneous contests and giveaways!

The monthlong jamboree’s kicks off with The Epic 10th Anniversary Giving Away of Rare and One-of-a-Kind Stuff. Megan describes the contest as:

“To commemorate the 10th Anniversary, I’d like you, the biggest supporters of my series, to share with me (and the world) what SLOPPY FIRSTS has meant to you.  In return for your efforts, I’ll provide you with the opportunity to get special SLOPPY FIRSTS swag: 2 rare UNCORRECTED PROOFS and a one-of-a-kind copy of SLOPPY FIRSTS annotated in my very own, very sloppy handwriting. I’ll reward the THREE entries that best say to me, “WOW. These readers really, really love SLOPPY FIRSTS…Maybe even more than I do.”

Giving away such precious prizes is such a special way for Megan to toast SLOPPY’S Anniversary. I’m sure I’m not the only fan that is inspired.
