Brain Snacks: Tasty Tidbits of Knowledge

On April 1st, 2009, Edward Bloor played an awesome trick on his fans, posting on his blog that he was writing a sequel to Tangerine. It was supposed to be entitled Blood Orange, and in it, Erik was going to join a group of teenage vampires to prey on the school's cheerleaders. So do you think Mr. Bloor is Team Edward or Team Jacob? (source)

Danny DeVito—you know, the short actor guy—wrote the introduction to the 10th anniversary hardcover copy of Tangerine. We wonder if he likes tangerines. (source)

Tangerine was Edward Bloor's very first novel—and it won five awards. Talk about setting the bar high. We'd probably just quit while we were ahead. (source)

Edward Bloor played soccer himself, from the age of eight up until college. Did he wear space goggles, too, like Paul? (source)
