Book to Movie: Giveaway & Twitter Chat with James Dashner

Maze Runner Twitter ChatIf you follow me on Twitter, then you know I love to watch movies and talk about them with my online friends. Once in a while, it morphs into a real event--and tonight is one of those times.

Tonight at 8pm Eastern Time,  get ready to join a Twitter viewing party of The Maze Runner with the author of the book, James Dashner. Once the movie starts, we will all have the chance to ask author @JamesDashner questions about the book to movie process, our favorite moments, and behind-the-scenes action.

To participate, log into Twitter or your favorite Twitter chat program and search for and use the hashtag #MazeRunnerFriday. Be sure to follow @JamesDashner, @FoxHomeEnt, and @MazeRunnerMovie so you don't miss any of the questions, answers, and reactions to The Maze Runner movie.

I'm already thinking about the questions I want to ask and can't wait to join in the fun.

The Giveaway: If don't yet have a copy of The Maze Runner, don't fret. I'm happy to be able to offer one of my readers a copy of the two-disk Blu-ray/DVD plus a copy of the book, so you can make your own book to movie comparison. Just in case you don't know the premise, here's the studio's summary:
In this heart-pounding survival thriller based on the best-selling novel, Thomas (Dylan O'Brien of MTV's "Teen Wolf" ) wakes up trapped in a massive, ever-changing maze with a group of boys who have no memory of the outside world. Facing dangerous obstacles at every turn—especially the deadly Grievers that roam the concrete corridors at night—Thomas and the others must race to piece together clues in order to discover their true purpose . . . . and find a way out before it’s too late!
The Maze Runner movieBesides, O'Brien, the film stars Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Game of Thrones), Will Poulter (We're the Millers), and Kaya Scodelario (Skins). It was directed by Wes Ball. The disk comes with a ton of great extras, such as a twenty-four page prequel comic book, deleted scenes, a documentary on the making of The Maze Runner, and a visual effects reel.

All you have to do to be enter to win a copy of the book and movie is to have a U.S. mailing address and fill out the following form. I'll pick a winner via random number generator on December 26. Once the winner has been confirmed, I'll erase all personal information from my computer. Good luck!

I met James Dashner a couple years back at the Scholastic event when we were at BEA. He was so down to earth and funny! I had not read him yet but knew I wanted to and started reading his amazing books. I have not seen the movie yet and can not wait! Not sure if I am available tonight or not (will be in a hotel) but if I am I will be popping in :)

It sounds like it will be fun tonight! Hopefully I'll be able to drop by and catch some of the conversations.

did you read the series? i did and once again i was truly disappointed over all . the first and second books were good but after that i felt as if the author felt as if he had to push the envelope to a point of true unbelieveabilty (not the any of it was really believable but .. )

I read and enjoyed The Maze Runner. It is in bad taste to watch the movie before I give it to my son for a gift? LOL. Thanks for the giveaway.
