Diary of a Wimpy Kid Hard Luck - Book 8 & an interview with Jeff Kinney

The newest Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, Hard Luck, hits the shelves today!  This is the 8th book in the best selling series by Jeff Kinney.

My 11-year-old son is a die hard Diary of a Wimpy Kid fan!  He has all the books and loves the movies. He recently had the opportunity to ask Jeff Kinney some questions!

He was giddy with excitement and felt like a superstar.  Here are a few questions he was dying to know.

Will Greg ever get a girlfriend?

I don't think so!  It would mess up the chemistry in the books.  But if I can think of a girl that might add something new to the series, I'll consider it!

When did you start writing books?

I started writing when I was 28, and I finished my first draft when I was 36.

What were you interested in when you were little? 

I was interested in Dungeons and Dragons and Star Wars, primarily.  And tadpoles.

How many more books do you think you're going to write?

I'm planning on writing at least two more, and maybe more after that!

Do you already have ideas for your next book?

Just two, and I'm not sure if they're good enough for print!

Thanks Jeff, you made my son's year!  Head on out and pick up your copy of Hard Luck!
