Lunar Chronicles Short Stories & My GoodReads Interview

Posted on: 12th Dec 2013  /   Categorized: Geeking Out

I have a couple announcements for you on this fine, frosty December morning.

 

Announcement #1

Many of you have been asking where the prequel short stories, “Glitches” and “The Queen’s Army” disappeared to a few weeks ago. Not to fear! They are now posted again, totally free and  open to international readers!

“Glitches”: In this prequel to Cinder, we see the results of the plague play out, and the emotional toll it takes on Cinder. Something that may, or may not, be a glitch….

“The Queen’s Army”: In this prequel to Scarlet, we’re introduced to the army Queen Levana is building, and one soldier in particular who will do anything to keep from becoming the monster they want him to be.

 

Read both prequels on my brand new WattPad page!

That link also includes the first five chapters of Cinder, Scarlet, AND Cress—so happy reading!

 

 

Announcement #2

I was interviewed for yesterday’s GoodReads YA Newsletter, where I talk Cress, the Lunar Chronicles, and even read a poem that I penned when I was sixteen.

 

Check out the six-minute video here!

 

(Confession: video interviews always kind of freak me out, but this one was so much fun, and in my opinion turned out really cute. Thanks to GoodReads for the awesome interviewer!!)

    Hi Mya, thank you for your comment! I often share writing tips on this blog – see the ‘writing tips’ tab on the sidebar. Or you may want to check out my FAQ page, I think I have some basic tips on there as well. Good luck with your writing and I hope you’ll enjoy the rest of the Lunar Chronicles!

    Hello Marissa Meyer,
    I love your series, and am currently waiting for Cress (I MUST READ IT). I personally love how you wrote about the moon, and its history on this blog. The cool thing is that about a year ago, I found a video/article about how scientists used to think the moon formed. I don’t know if this theory has changed or not, but the video is still pretty cool. I thought you might like it because your books are about the moon and its inhabitants, after all.

    Hope you like it!!

    Hi Marissa Meyer
    I really really love your series…like a lot (my friend tells me I’m obsessed). I’ve told all my friends about your books and I even made a fanart of Cinder on Instagram and tumblr. I can’t wait till Cress comes out (a couple days before my bday, I know what I want this time) I really wish there was a movie for cinder (I know you’ve sold movie rights *crosses fingers…and toes* I also had a question about the #readcinder contest I’m not sure if you’re the one I’m supposed to ask but I’ll ask anyway, I’ve posted two pics, so now what? Thanks!
