- book swag


- creativity-based contests

Jesikah Sundin Hi Marissa - thank you for accepting my friend request. I write soft-cyberpunk sci-fi with medieval undertones and squealed when I came across your series. Twisted fairy tales are simply irresistible. I live in Monroe, WA, so maybe we'll bump into each other at a writing/book event sometime :) I wish you continued success!

Sophia✯ Thanks for accepting the friends request! You are soooo amazing! I can't wait for Heartless! (Even though Winter was pushed back ;). I would automatically buy pretty much any book you ever write!)

I would just like to thank you for accepting my friend request! I'm a young writer who dreams of being published and I'm just inspired by the creativity of your story. It's pretty rare when I find an author I have a lot of respect for, but I'm grateful to those authors when I do.

You're awesome.
I'm a big fan of The Lunar Chronicles saga, really.

I'm from Mexico and read the books in spanish and now can't wait for read Cress (well, even if I have to read it in English)

My favorite character is Wolf and Captain Thorne. Oh and Kai. Really you do something great with the male characters that make me fall in love with each.

Although I also love Cinder, Scarlet and Peony.

But, by God, WOLF.

Have a great day :))
