CINDER, my debut novel, is a futuristic re-envisioning of Cinderella in which Cinder is a cyborg mechanic. Release date: 3 Jan 2012.

Alisha Dear, Marissa Meyer
Is there going to be another book signing in Washington soon for fairest or any of your other books
that is near by Redmond or near Third Place books like you were in 2014. I would like to come to a book signing but Tacoma is to far away from where I live.
- Alisha S.

Stacy Alicia Blade, how proud I am of how far you've come. I used to read your SM fanfics in high school. When you've pen name was attached to something, I knew I'd love it. I actually discovered your Lunar Chronicles series when I went to look at your Alicia Blade profile to see if there was anything new by you. It was a pleasant surprise to see that there was something new from you, and it made it to the NYT Bestsellers list. I was so happy that so many more people would be able to enjoy your work. Keep on typing. Whatever you write is sure to be brilliant.

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.

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 :))
