Is Meg Cabot Writing A New Princess Diaries Book?

Fans of Mia Thermopolis in The Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot have been pining for a new installment since the final book was published in late 2008. For those of you who are unwilling to do math, that’s four years. Which is a really long time! A single cat can produce like, 200 offspring (including grand kids) in 4 years! I’m just saying, it’s been too long. After the book came out, Meg responded to fan questions on her blog, slashing down our dreams of a new installment.

“Is the tenth book the last in the Princess Diaries series?” The fan asked. “Yes. Although I may write about Princess Mia again, I don’t have any more contracted books about her at this time. Mia and I need a long break!” Translation: Nothing is on the stove right now, and I have some other things to work on. But eventually, I totally will because I love my fans and want to give them the precious gift of literature.

Even if you aren’t as loose in your interpretation as I am, it’s not a no, right? Upon that we can all agree. I’d forgotten about it completely, until I realized I could follow Meg Cabot on Twitter! I’m glad I did, because she posted a link to the blog of “Mia Thermopolis”! Of course, Mia is fictional, but Meg apparently pops in to write as her! And it’s amazing! Well, Meg tweeted a link to the new blog post, in which Mia laments the public nature of her new blog, and jokes that she needs a new diary so she can write in private. “You know what? For Christmas all I want is A NEW DIARY WITH A LOCK ON IT,” Meg wrote. New diary = new book. It’s simple math–the only kind of math I’ve ever excelled in! Are you thrilled? Can we agree to tweet Meg incessantly until she promises us a look at Mia’s life in college?

Update: Meg Cabot saw our post, and responded via Twitter: “Princess Mia’s blog has caught the attention of Celeb Teen Laundry. Who knows what will happen next???” I’d like to take a guess: More Mia!

  1. […] Celeb Teen Laundry reported that Meg had hinted at a new book through a blog she runs, writing as Mia Thermopolis. In the post, Mia laments the public nature of her online (and rarely updated) blog, and concludes, “You know what? For Christmas all I want is A NEW DIARY WITH A LOCK ON IT.” Readers of the series know what that means; if Mia is getting a new diary, Meg will for sure be publishing it! It’s the way the series works—between the ninth and tenth book are 21 silent months, during which Mia focuses all her energy on a work of fiction, abandoning her diary. If Mia (who is fictional!) gets a new diary, it means we should expect to see it in bookstores! […]
