bcbookobsessed asked: "Are you ever going to let you readers know who you killed off in United We Spy but decided not to in the end?"

theallycarter:

I suppose I can now tell you that in the early versions of UNITED WE SPY in which Preston died. And he died bloody.

Perhaps some day I will talk about it more—explain the whole subplot that led to that and why I decided that it wasn’t the correct ending for the series.

Basically, my brilliant editor read the book and, like me, felt like something was…off. We decided that the ending should be Cam and crew facing off against the series’s ultimate villain: Catherine. So I made this massive change at the 11th hour, and it was absolutely, 100% the right call.

Because editors are brilliant, and authors are smart to always at least consider what they have to say.

So…yeah. Preston DID die. But then he didn’t.

YOU’RE WELCOME!

Ally


immesoyolo asked: "Is there gonna be a movie? Or is that just a rumour?"

It’s been optioned, and as cool as that is, it doesn’t always mean the movie is going to get made. The series has been optioned before by other companies so

lustinqly asked: "OMG I JUST FINISHED READING UNITED WE SPY AND I JUST CANT OMFG LIZS SPEECH WAS SO BEAUTIFUL *CRIES* I wish the ending somehow involved the other girls though but I guess since they moved on to other things so ally carter didn't include them :( but I'm so sad the series ended and now :((("

OMG, I KNOW. LIZ’S SPEECH RUINED ME.  Also, whenever you’re sad about the series ending, remind yourself of two things:

1. you can always reread them obsessively.

2. EMBASSY ROW WHO’S EXCITED FOR EMBASSY ROW BC I AM REALLY EXCITED FOR EMBASSY ROW

forget-me-not-xx asked: "I ended up having to have a whole Gallagher read-a-thon before I read the last book, when I finally read it I ended up crying on the last page, Lizzie's speech, it was beautiful. Did you hear about Ally's latest book coming in 2015? Hopefully it's as amazing as GG x"

Liz’s speech turned me in a permanent mess of feels.

AND YES. I AM SO BEYOND EXCITED FOR EMBASSY ROW. THERE ARE NO WORDS.

Live chat

theallycarter:

Hi! I will be chatting HERE at 3:00 central time. Come join me! (@OfficiallyAlly live on twitcam.livestream.com/fhje4)

 If you didn’t get to watch Ally’s twitcam (which by the way was great. Shout out to Ally: you’re fabulous!), it will be archived, and you should all totally watch it. Especially if you want to hear Ally talk about Embassy Row. Because she does. And it’s perfect. Also, she talks about Zach and Hale, and I’d be lying if I said that wasn’t one of my favorite parts of the twitcam.


Ally Carter just high-fived me.

My life? Complete.

An Open Letter to Ally Carter

theallycarter:

gallaghergirlsforlife:

Dear Ally,
*sobs feverishly*
You have turned me into a permanent mess of feels.
But in the best possible way.
Love,
gallagher girl

Excellent.

I feel like I’ll be crying and/or hyperventilating tomorrow at your signing- at least on the inside- and you’ll just be rubbing your hands together evilly and maniacally laughing and whispering : “Excellent! The results are just as I expected.”


darkeyedqueen asked: "I just finished United We Spy. your blog says gallaghergirlsforlife, and in the last book, when it's over, you'll really feel how true that is."

Oh, I know. I literally couldn’t stop crying. The book was perfect and empowering and nostalgic and brilliant, and I don’t think I fully realized just how much the series meant to me and how much it was and is a part of me until I started reading it and realized I would never stop.
I reread it last night, and I think I cry more and more each time I read it. Which doesn’t really make sense but that book just ugh
