Did you know...

That AMM is on the list of best selling authors of all time with between 172-180 million books sold? Right behind Charles Dickens.

Who does she outsell?
Beatrix Potter, Michael Crichton, James Patterson, Anne Rice, and Robin Cook just to name a few.

The Baby-sitters club is #10 on the Best Selling Book Series of all time.

Was watching Twilight Sucks videos on youtube out of boredom and was amused when it was stated that the BSC outsold Twilight. (of course it's been around longer but you get the idea. ;) )

It's Official!

Wanderingfrog wrote an email to scholastic inquiring about "The Summer Before" and they replied back, saying that it was a hardcover set to be released March 12, 2010...earlier than what Amazon said!

Fantastic BSC Sims Fanvid

I stumbled upon this on youtube, and thought I'd share it.

Thursday, September 3, 2009


I thought the BSC like exclamation would be appropriate from what I just found out on the BSC LJ community thanks to wanderingfrog. For those of you that aren't on LJ, here's the big news:

AMM is in the process of writing a Prequel to the Baby-Sitters Club entitled The Summer Before.

Before there was the Baby-Sitters Club, there were four girls named Kristy Thomas, Mary Anne Spier, Claudia Kishi, and Stacey McGill. As they start the summer before seventh grade (also before they start the BSC), each of them is on the cusp of a big change. Kristy is still hung up on hoping that her father will return to her family. Mary Anne has to prove to her father that she's no longer a little girl who needs hundreds of rules. Claudia is navigating her first major crush on a boy. And Stacey is leaving her entire New York City life behind... order to find new friends in Stoneybrook, Connecticut.

The Summer Before . . . is a sweet, moving novel about four girls on the edge of something big - not just the Club that will change their lives, but also all the joys and tribulations of being twelve and thirteen.

*Way too excited*

ETA: I really hope it's not some mean prank... the April 1st date did stop me for a moment...but the BSC seems like an odd choice for a prank...and if it were, I'd think it would be a sequel not a prequel... and then there's the fact that it's available for pre-order..
Let's just hope someone's not pulling a fast one over our eyes. I THIRST FOR THIS BOOK.
