Some of the Most Heartwarming TLC Art I’ve Ever Seen

Posted on: 16th Feb 2016  /   Categorized: fanart

Oh my stars. Have you guys seen these????

Now, I have received a lot of amazing fanart over the years and every piece has made me smile or swoon, and sometimes even made me laugh.

But last week, during the Stars Above tour, I received a booklet containing two short TLC comics that made me smile, and then awww, and then… cry. Truly. That was a first.  These two graphic stories are so incredibly touching (and cleverly done!) that I simply had to share them here.

Thanks to Sorcaron for bringing them to my attention and printing my own keepsake book to cherish, and to both Sorcaron/mf-islands and Ana-Dante for creating such heartfelt mini-tales.

Out Today: A Tyranny of Petticoats Anthology

Posted on: 8th Mar 2016  /   Categorized: Anthologies

I’m so pleased to announce the release of A TYRANNY OF PETTICOATS: 15 STORIES OF BELLES, BANK ROBBERS & OTHER BADASS GIRLS, edited by Jessica Spotswood – a historical fiction anthology that includes a story from yours truly.

 

Tyranny (2)

 
From an impressive sisterhood of YA writers comes an edge-of-your-seat anthology of historical fiction and fantasy featuring a diverse array of daring heroines.

 

Criss-cross America — on dogsleds and ships, stagecoaches and trains — from pirate ships off the coast of the Carolinas to the peace, love, and protests of 1960s Chicago. Join fifteen of today’s most talented writers of young adult literature on a thrill ride through history with American girls charting their own course. They are monsters and mediums, bodyguards and barkeeps, screenwriters and schoolteachers, heiresses and hobos. They’re making their own way in often-hostile lands, using every weapon in their arsenals, facing down murderers and marriage proposals. And they all have a story to tell.

My contribution – titled “Gold in the Roots of the Grass” – is a ghost story that takes place during the 1877 Black Hills Gold Rush. I loved researching and writing it, and sincerely hope you’ll enjoy it, along with the whole collection.

Happy Valentine’s Day from The Lunar Chronicles

Posted on: 8th Feb 2016  /   Categorized: Book Love

I love Valentine’s Day. I truly do. It’s always been my favorite holiday – maybe because I’ve never felt that it’s a holiday that has to be strictly about romantic love. Rather, I think of it as a day to celebrate all the special people in our lives, whether that’s your husband, your grandma, your best friend, or even a coworker.

 

So I wanted to do something special this year for some of my favorite people…. my Lunartics!

 

I’ve teamed up with five phenomenal TLC fanartists to create five valentines, each featuring a favorite ship from the series. (Last week’s graphic novel announcement may or may not clue you in to who the fifth couple will be…)

 

I’ll be posting one valentine each day this week. Please: Take them. Download them. Print them. Share them. Pin them. Enjoy them.

 

Wishing you and yours a Happy Valentine’s Day!

 

Marissa

TLC Graphic Novels… IT’S A THING

Posted on: 1st Feb 2016  /   Categorized: Wires & Nerve

Just announced!

 

Big News!

 

I’m so excited!

 

It is official, guys: I am writing Lunar Chronicles Graphic Novels.

 

This two-part series, titled WIRES & NERVE, will take place after Winter (but before the Stars Above epilogue) and feature Iko as the main protagonist… along with a brand-new villain, and maybe a certain Lunar guard as well. (There you have it, Kiko shippers. Did you doubt me??)

 

Read all about WIRES & NERVE in today’s article on The Washington Post, which also happens to include our first released character sketch. It’s of Iko, looking completely badass.

 

I HEART IT SO MUCH.

 

I really, really love graphic novels and it’s been on my wish list to write one since I was a teenager, so this has been a dream come true for me. I sincerely hope you will all love it when it comes out next year!
