Questions and Answers from Maggie Stiefvater

I don't know how many of you remember our lovely War of the Books between Elyssa and myself. We chose to do it with the book Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater (click HERE if you want to help yourself remember). Well, anyway, I had sent her some questions for the occasion and hadn't heard back. Normally, I just thought she was super busy and could not get to them.

Any how, last week I was overjoyed to notice that she replied to my 3 questions. So, being that today is my day to post, I am posting them here for all to see. They are quite interesting to me, so I hope you all enjoy them. I do love Maggie Stiefvater!


Me: Did you have any word about the cover art for any of your novels, e.i. Lament, Ballad, Shiver, Linger, Forever

Maggie: The cover I had the most say in was Ballad's; it was based off a concept I came up with when Flux decided to change the look of the series. More than anything I wanted to evoke the idea that PEOPLE PROBABLY GET BURNED ALIVE IN THIS BOOK. Everything else was secondary. The others, I have gotten the right of Wigging Out on. In other words, the publisher came up with the cover, showed it to me, and if I wigged out, they would consider changing it.

Me: Do you have any new major writing projects coming up that we should watch out for (other than the Shiver series)?

Maggie: Oh yes indeedy. I have a standalone paranormal YA involving blood, beaches, and kissing. It will be coming out not too long after FOREVER.

Me: Where is your favorite travel spot and why?

Maggie: Apparently I keep visiting cliffs these days. But my favorite destinations invariably involve rocks, raining, and preferably anything you could describe as "moors."

Thanks again Maggie for taking the time to answer my questions! You really are a wonderful author and it was so fabulous to hear from you! :D

hehe! Thanks! It's suppose to match my blog. :D I would very much like to do it more often! I brought the idea to Lyss and she agreed. I think our followers are high enough to get some interviews!
