    Sounds like fun! I’m kind of on the Red Riding Hood kick! (Red Riding Hood marathon) Good idea to get everyone’s mind off of Cress! It’ll prepare them for Cress when it comes out!

    Hi! I know this is non scarlet related but I have to share! I JUST finished the final copy of my novel of how the evil queen in snow white became evil!!! My goals for 2014 is to start on my novel Vines (A retelling of Jack and beanstalk) do a Tangled novelization, and finish a draft on another unfinished novel. Then I want to read Cress, Splintered, Sisters Red and thats all! Have a great 2014 year! Love your books, and your writing tips. I LOVE your writing tips. They are so awesome! I use them a lot. Cinder is my favorite book, I picked it up at the library because of it’s neat cover and was hooked! The next day I bought it. I love the were-wolf element! And finally, everyone, please visit The singer is awesome with science fiction/fantasy and werewolf songs (make you think of scarlet?) They just released a album and will be releasing a new one soon. They are also releasing a new music were wolf video titled Predator. Their album is called Phantom, and so yeah check it out! If you like lunar chronicles, then you’ll like tara elisha music. It’s futurestic and everything!

    I already have!

  6. jadyn commented on:

    OMG! 20 days. Like i didn’t know. Heck, 20 days!

  7. Kay commented on:

    Ummm, so if we bought the hard copy books of Cinder and Scarlet, we have to buy the paperback also to see this new material? Seems a little unfair…

  8. Adele commented on:

    I agree. I just bought a hardcover of Scarlet this past summer. I don’t think I’m going to buy ANOTHER copy just because of bonus material!

  9. sara G. commented on:

    19 days!

  10. Marissa commented on:

    I feel like I should point out that most of the bonus content didn’t exist when the hardcover came out, and is also already available for free on the internet. We’re not trying to trick you, it just makes for fun extras in this print edition. 🙂

    I can’t wait for Scarlet!
