Okay, so I can finally tell you guys when the movie version of Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life is coming out…well, sort of. It might still be hitting a big screen here and there in the next few months, but if you don’t happen to live near “here” or “there”, you can still see it…and soon!! As in 6 weeks from now! The official release date on DVD and digital download (like Netflix, iTunes, etc,) isn’t for another 7 months or so (final date to come when announced)…BUT Walmart is too excited about the movie to wait, so they have the exclusive right to sell it starting October 4th!! So get thee to your local Walmart and pick up a copy or two. Hey, it cost less than 2 tickets and a popcorn and ya get to watch it as many times as you want!
I got to go to the recording studio in NYC to record the first chapter of the book, which is going to be included as one of the extras on the DVD. It was a lot of fun, and only a little intimidating! I’m such a big fan of audiobooks, and I loved getting to meet two of the voice actors who’ve recorded some of my books–Kathleen McInerney read all three of the “birthday books” (11 Birthdays, Finally, and 13 Gifts) and made them sound totally different, and Mark Turetsky recorded The Candymakers (all four voices!!) and was the voice of Jack in Every Soul a Star. I LOVED the jobs they both did, and after getting a small taste of the experience, am even more in awe of their talent. If you haven’t tried listening to a book yet, I highly recommend it.
Below is a sneak peek at the poster for the movie, and the tie-in cover of the paperback that will release on October 4th as well.

I’m working on getting the final copy of the trailer, and as soon as I have a link I’ll post it here.
I’m going to see the movie this weekend and I’ll report back on it!’
I’d love to hear your thoughts on all this!
