I’m pleased to announce that a Lunar Chronicles companion short story, “The Little Android,” will come out this January. It’s based on “The Little Mermaid,” my second-most requested fairy tale to retell (after the ever-popular “Beauty and the Beast”). You can read a teaser from the story here: http://thelunarchronicles.com/post/68797850256/an-excerpt-from-the-little-android-by-marissa-meyer
My publisher revealed a new promo where you could win a fabulous limited-edition CRESS comb, and all you have to do is pre-order the book! (Which you were going to do anyway, right?) Details are at : http://us.macmillan.com/macmillansite/promo/cresspreorderoffer (US only).
Then – BIG NEWS! – these dates and locations for my CRESS book tour were announced! If I’m coming to a city near you, mark your calendars!
We also had an amazing Twitter chat last night, and I want to thank everyone who hung out with us and asked questions! They were coming in fast and furious and I know I missed a lot, but never fear! I will be participating in yet another Q&A session coming up. And I’ll be on live video this time. How’s that for high-tech?
