Just a heads up that Barnes and Noble has released Private #9, Paradise Lost, EARLY exclusively online! --> Paradise Lost (Private Series #9)

So if you're dying to get a copy (like me) you can order now, and even with shipping it should still arrive before the regular release date!

P.S. - This 10% off coupon code worked for me, and took off an extra dollar from the total price. R4M3M3J

I visited the Private website just now and saw that Chapter 1 of Paradise Lost (the latest Private book coming out in 2 months) is up! Has anybody read it yet? If not yet, here's the direct link:


What do guys think about it?

+ 26 days until the release of Privilege, the new series spun off of Private, based on Ariana Osgood. Get ready to go out and grab that after Christmas! There is a contest relating to the new series on the main Private site, here. Make sure to enter in that.
+ Kate wrote a blog entry on November 18th about the possibillity of a TV series or movie. She didn't tell us anything we don't know, but she did ask who you would cast. You can check that out and tell her who you would cast, here.
+ Last Christmas has been out for awhile, anyone have any major thoughts? There are some downloads on Kate's site for the book, including wallpapers and a MySpace layout. If you haven't gotten a chance to get your hands on it yet, you can also read the first chapter on Kate's site.
+ Some Last Christmas related discussion questions to get you commenting:
Did you see Ariana differently after this book? Like, or dislike?
Does Last Christmas help fill in some of the holes that have made Ariana more of a mystery?

+ Did I skip last Monday? I think I did. Sorry about that guys. :\
+ There's hardly any news though, just an entry on Kate's blog on the official site. It's not too relevant now (because it was on Halloween, so it was awhile ago) , but it discusses a little bit about Privilege, the new series focusing on Ariana.
+ That's about it! But Happy November! :) Remember to advertise this community! We're still kind of small.

So, like many people, I've been thinking about how Private would make a wonderful TV series or movie series. Sometimes I'm more for the movies than the TV show, because movies tend to be taken more seriously, but it looks like if it's done right, a TV series could be very good. It's just the thing that bothers me is that people might take it as the new Gossip Girl, or the new "The Clique". And while Gossip Girl is what it is, I'm not really a fan of the show or the books because of the fact that people don't really take it seriously beyond it being a bunch of "rich girls getting in trouble". And yeah, yeah, I know they're not really supposed to take it seriously, but you have to at least a little bit in order to enjoy it.

With Private though, I feel like it deserves more than that. I don't know. I think it could be a really great tv series if it was more of a sophisticated, serious show (or movie) because the books are sophisticated and the stories can be just as serious. I don't know, I just don't see a Private TV show or movie being completely superficial or full of fluff. Private has this amazing mystery aspect which would be amazing to see on screen. And a lot of teen books like this don't really have that. Each book actually has a plot and a point besides getting a boy or acting like a bitch to another girl, you know? I was also thinking that if the books are made into a show or a movie, that it'd be better if they had a mostly unknown cast, and not just some well-known It girls. It would be so refreshing to just have a lot of new fresh faces, etc...  I can imagine it being this suspenseful, mysterious show with some added glamour.

I don't know. I was just re-reading Private from the beginning and was thinking about this, so :)

Hello! New Mod here. So anyway, we want this comm to be really active right so I made banners! I'm not good at this kinda things so basically I just added text to the banners. 2 of the banners are of different dimensions, heh. I'm sorry. Choose your favourite and pimp it. Hopefully it'll help get this community going (: Upload to your own server please. Thank you. Oh and you can resize it if you want or if you need help, I can do it for you.

+ I decided on Monday we'll do our own little community news blog type thing. :) That way our members and new prospective members can get some info about what's been going on in the Private world lately.
+ We have 2 new moderators! They are simply_inn0cent , and surfingthe_sun . Welcome them! With 3 mods all together, we should be getting plenty of activity going on in the community, and your posts should be accepted faster. We'll work hard to make this an awesome community!
+ On Kate's official site, here, there is now a countdown to Privilege, the new series! It's still awhile off - it comes out on 12/30/08, but it should be worth the wait. You can read the first chapter on the website as well. :) I personally find Ariana a fascinating character, so I'm super excited for this new series.
+ Also on the website there are some new Private downloads available, like icons, MySpace layouts, wallpapers...etc. Have fun with those!
+ That's it for now! Remember to pick up your copy of Last Christmas if you haven't yet!

Hey guys, sorry for not really updating the community. :)
+ There's not many members; we should try to get our member count up.
+ News: Last Christmas, the Private prequel, was available on October 7th! So go out and buy that!
+ Revelation. Feel free to post thoughts on the 8th book in the Private series! It's been released for quite some time now.
+ Any people interested in being a fellow moderator? Comment here, or message me. I'll be looking for someone to keep things more up to date.
+ Please, guys, tag your posts. It's best so that things on here stay organized. If you don't tag your posts I can always do it for you, but it's nicer if you could do that yourselves.
+ I'm thinking of making this community non-members only, or mostly public. I know a lot of Private fans that do not use LJ, so it might be better to get more active participants.
