So I am sometimes held up as an example of someone who is, like, changing the publishing paradigm or whatever because I have a lot of Tumblr followers and YouTube subscribers and I can speak directly to my audience and I don't need the value-sucking middleman of bookstores and publishers, and in the future everyone is going to be like me and no one will stand between Author and Reader except possibly an E-commerce site that takes just a tiny little percentage of each transaction. Yeah, that's bullshit.
I did not want to sell the movie rights for 'The Fault in Our Stars'. It was a very personal story for me. Also, I'd had some unhappy experiences before, and I didn't want a movie that I didn't like being made from a book that's so important to me. Everyone was like, 'Oh, it's a 'Love Story' for a new generation!' And I was like, 'That was the worst thing you could've possibly said to me'. I wanted it to be a funny movie and a sweet movie, but I also wanted it to be about asking the question, What constitutes a good life? And whether it's possible to have a good and meaningful life, even if you have a short life.
