American train horns are so different. I’d lay in bed at night and listen to them lowing, down by the river. American trains mourn. Their horns are haunting, especially in the dark. There’s a funereal yearning to them. It’s a distant sonic truth. It may be the real sound of the American landscape.

Potter has done too much for me for me to ever want to shit all over it. I’m never going to say: ‘Don’t ask me questions about that’. I remember reading an interview with Robert Smith from The Cure. Somebody said to him: ‘Why do you still wear all that makeup, don’t you feel a bit past it?’ And he said: ‘There are still 14-year-olds coming to see The Cure for the first time, dressed like that. I’d never want to make them feel silly.’ It’s a similar thing with Potter. People are still discovering those books and films. It would be awful for them to find out the people involved had turned their backs on it. Though sometimes, people do come up and say ‘I loved you in The Woman in Black,’ which is really sweet. That’s them knowing that it matters to me that I’ve done other stuff.

When???? Pleaseeeeee, continue the Hex Hall saga.

I’m so glad you loved Sophie and Co., but those kids need a BREAK. Once you’ve fought a demon army, there’s really nowhere else to go! ;)

will the hexhall series ever be turned in to a movie ?!?!? I NEED IT TO BE A MOVIE UGHHHHH

Aw, thank you, but I don’t think that’s in the cards, and even if it were, it would be 100% out of my hands!

For my dad who passed away 17 years ago today. I was 17 at the time, so it’s very strange to think I’ve lived as many years without him as I ever had with him. Miss him, love him, was so lucky to have him.

VAN EYCK

I lost it at the end.

Okay, I had to check out the Van Eyck thing. I was a bit in denial because, come on, every single person can’t look like President Putin!

There are no words to describe how wrong I was.

The art historian in me had to reblog this.

I Will No Longer Be Commenting on Fan Casts & Here’s Why

bethrevis:

Every week or so, I get one of two emails. Someone is either asking when a movie will be made of my books or who I’d cast in the said possible fictional movie of the books. 

I love movies. I love fangirling. It’s a part of who I am. And I am so, so sincerely happy that you guys care enough about my books to want to see them spread into other mediums. 

But I’m going to quit commenting on these posts—at least for a bit—and here’s why:
