MEG Movie Update
Jon Turtletaub (National Treasure) has replaced Eli Roth as the MEG director. Jon has experience working with big budget movies and is incredibly excited about doing MEG. He wants the movie to be tense, fun, and scientifically accurate. I love him already. (see photo of Jon holding up the new MEG book!) For the record, I think the world of Eli Roth and sincerely hope he gets involved in a future Alten project.
2 New Book & Poster Packages for April!
The BOOK package offers a 20th anniversary hardback, limited edition (only 5,000 were printed, each NUMBERED and now SIGNED!) along with a new 2016 edition of the revised MEG paperback. Only $29.95 for both (plus S & H)

The POSTER package is a steal - ALL 4 MEG giant posters (MEG surfer, MEG: Primal Waters, MEG: Hell's Aquarium, and the incredible MEG: Nightstalkers) all for only $39.95 (REG: $99.96). Offer good while supplies last.

If there is any doubts that I signed every Limited Edition hardback, watch this video:

MEG: Nightstalkers - PREORDER NOW!  
Having just completed the final edit, I now humbly believe that the NIGHTSTALKERS is the BEST of the MEG series! I'm not just hyping it; when I was editing I hated taking bathroom breaks. What makes it so good are the characters, both human and monsters.

Joke of the Month:
A worldwide survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was: "Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?" The survey was a huge failure. In Africa they didn't know what "food" meant. In Eastern Europe they didn't know what "honest" meant. In Western Europe they didn't know what "shortage" meant. In China they didn't know what "opinion" meant. In the Middle East they didn't know what "solution" meant. In South America they didn't know what "please" meant. And in the USA they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.

Recipe of the Month: Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread
3/4 cup low-fat milk
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups shredded zucchini (about 2 small zucchini)
2 cups whole-wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350�F. Coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
2. Whisk milk, eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla in a medium bowl. Stir in zucchini. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Add the wet ingredients and chocolate chips to the dry ingredients; stir until just combined. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan.
3. Bake until golden brown and a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack. Let cool for at least 1 hour before slicing.
