Cool 'Hunger Games' Stuff

Are you as excited as 1/2 the world about Hunger Games? I have my tickets for next weekend and my t-shirt is on the way.

So you can imagine how awesome it was to have my book Untraceable compared to Hunger Games - in any way! And I do see Grace as a modern day Katniss. Or at least that is what I wanted to create.

  • A fan of Untraceable who loved my cover mentioned it's resemblence to Hunger Games.  How spooky is that! I've never seen the Germany cover before this and look our much they compliment each other.
  • Or when this reader said this"Untraceable reminded me of a non-science fiction/non-fantasy version of The Hunger Games or The Calling by Kelley Armstrong. Lots of outdoorsy stuff, lots of mystery, lots of action. is :)"

So, here are some great things I found that are fun to help you get ready for next weekend:

That is so cool! I think you should use that as your new tag line! Can't wait to see it also.

Those covers are very similar. They also remind me of Andrea Cremer's.

I loved Hunger Games and I don't read a lot of YA. I think the movie will be really good. It just seems like one of those books that moves easily to the big screen.
What a cool comparison.

Good luck with everthing, Shelli. I hope to some day be in your shoes.

Love those comparisons!! Awesome. Grace is such a strong willed character - definitely has a lot in common with Katniss. :)

Did you get your "free" Panem ID card through Cafe Press yet? Mine came in the mail last week, and it's really nice quality... Shipping is 1-2 dollars, but it's a really cool piece of book/movie merch, and if anything, it makes a great bookmark!

I noticed this (I live in Germany and though I have the English version of Hunger Games, my teen daughter has the German version). Thought it was very similar. Very cool!
