Hee, you and me both -- I don't know, I suppose anything is possible!

Kate Hi Maggie,

I was wondering if you will ever do a international book tour! Not just to UK, to far off places like Australia etc! I really hope that day would come soon. =D

Sara! I'm so glad you loved BALLAD and James! :D Ballad is still my favorite book that I've written so far so it makes me really happy when it touches a reader. Thank you!

Hi Kay! I don't know if they're using green ink or not -- my guess is yes, but don't hold me to it! I'm so, so glad that you loved SHIVER, and whoa, top pick? Terribly flattered!!!

Sara Hello Maggie!
So I just finished Ballad. Literally 5 minutes ago (still whiping my nose/eyes on my sweater....yeah gross but I can't seem to find tissue)

HOLY crap. <3 Thank you so much for another story. You are beyond a doubt one of my favourite authors. I feel emotionally exhausted. (In a very great way) What a whirlwind...James made me laugh until I cried and scenes with Nuala both broke my heart and made me smile. I LOVED their story. My heart was both aching something terrible and racing by the end. My cheeks were a mess even though I found the ending so satisfying!
Although I was still hungry for more, I was so relieved with how everything tied up in the very last few pages.

Your characters leave such an impact. It's going to be hard to sleep tonight- I still feel pleasently intoxiated from the story.

Keep up the fantastic work!
<3

Sandra Pulliam Maggie,
Just started reading Ballard and so far really good. I even made my husband listen while I read him the first part. He pretended like he didn't listen then later asks who was the one who got the iron in the face. Thats pretty good when you catch his attention:-) I even caught him thumbing through it this morning. He just laughed and said he was trying to figure out what kind of books I want for Christmas. I think you may have a closet fan... Heaven forbid he will ever admit he wants to actually read it himself.

Kay M. Fraser Hey Maggie,

First off thank you for your friendship!
Second, I'm in love with "Shiver". I've read this year 50 + books, and yours is my top pick. Love the sweet caring romance, the way you have with words, that makes one line melt into the next beautifully.
I teared up a couple times reading... Yeah I know I need help. I'll be reading "Ballad" and "Lament" over Christmas.
I'm a big fan of your writing... no matter if you are making list of how many e-mails you sent this year. =) Still care to read it.

Congrats on the movie! On your birthday! We are the same age!

Can't wait until August for the next book. Jeez seems like ages away... I'm envious of the trade editor that it's reading the story right now... or the designer putting it together... ummm I work on publishing, the design side of it. =) Do you know if they are using green ink for the interior? i was wondering if they would...

Enough ranting... Thanks for sharing your love for writing with all of us. We are privileged.
Love
Kay

Sara Hello again Maggie!

message 106: by Jesse

Jesse Read Lament last week and then Ballad this weekend. I loved Lament, but then Ballad has just become one of my favorite books! I will definitey read that story again...could not get enough of James. What a great character! Thanks again.


message 105: by Kit

Kit Maggie!!

I read Shiver a couple months ago and it was one of the best things I've read in a long time. Now I'm midway through Lament, and I'm pretty sure IT'S one of the best things I've read in a long time. The way you capture the way a girl thinks about her first relationship is perfect. I remember so clearly going through all that...

Perfect!

message 104: by Jesse

Jesse I've just read Lament yesterday and have Ballad and Shiver on my shelf right now to be read next. I must say that I became a fan after reading just an excerpt from Lament, but now I can most definitely confirm my fandom. I am so grateful when I read a book that really takes me away and wraps me in another world and I definitely was not of this world while reading Lament. Thank you.

Rachel (The Rest Is Still Unwritten) Hi, Maggie.
I just finished Shiver and let me say, you blew me away. I just love your books, i really do. I haven't read Ballard yet, but i have it on order and i'm desperate to get my hands on it.
Keep up the awesome story telling, you do it so well!

*grin* Thanks. I'm really glad you liked Ballad, especially the SullivanLove bit. ;) And in my head, there are more stories in that series, but they are a bit backed up behind other novels in the queue, so it might be a bit of a delay. Thanks for all this, by the way!

Heh. No kraken. Believe me, something much, much cooler. ;) And in my head, there are more Ballad/ Lament novels, but they are definitely a few books back in the queue.

Haley Maggie Stiefvater, you are excellent at writing about badasses. I just finished Ballad and sweet baby Jesus, I love that Mr. Sullivan. Haha.

But I have some questions (some of which you might not be able to answer)! Is there going to be a third novel in the Lament series? It seemed like there will be, but your list of books only has the Mercy Falls books. And Dee and Luke- I don't know what to say! I love them together but now they seem broken. Will you write more about them from Dee's perspective?

But Dee and Luke aside, I loved Ballad. James and Nuala are so perfect for each other. I cracked up laughing more times than I can count while reading it because of them (and Paul, too). Oh, and thank you so much for killing off a certain awful relative. I wanted to punch her in the face so bad, you have no idea. Haha.

But this is starting to get long so I'll end it here. And also, congrats on the Shiver! I cant wait to find out about the cast and all that.

Sara Hi Maggie!
Just wanted to thank you for coming to answer questions in the YA group. I'd hate to think you had a bad expierence doing it but judging on some of the people's responses, I think you may not have enjoyed it as much as you should have. =(

I wrote a comment in responses in that group already but just incase you don't go back there anymore, just know that there are thousands of people who loved your book.
It was one of my favourite reads of this year, by far.

I'm writing a story myself and I really fear having to face the different reactions. I suppose that's immature of me. I know that people have different tastes and that I understand but then there are those who offer unintelligent and cruel reviews. That frightens me. :P

So, in short, I think you are courageous to go through with this whole process. Your books are deserving of the high praise they get. Don't ever doubt it! <3

Hahaha!! Oh, Kate, please don't apologize, I was amused when I took a peek at your review. :D It was a great review.




message 87: by Kate

Kate Hi Maggie, I am SO sorry about what I wrote in my review about you not intending for her readers to cry while reading Shiver. I am really sorry. :( I just read an interview where you said I wrote Shiver because I like to make people cry.

Many apologies.

Maggie Stiefvater Heather wrote: "Hey, Maggie! Just wondering: Of your two current series, which one is your favorite? I realize that may be like asking a mom which of her kids is her favorite, but... I'm curious. I've read all you..."

Hee! I can't answer which is my favorite -- they both scratch different itches. But I can say that yes, Shiver's a trilogy, and my book after that will involve blood, beaches, and kissing. :)



message 85: by Heather

Heather Hey, Maggie! Just wondering: Of your two current series, which one is your favorite? I realize that may be like asking a mom which of her kids is her favorite, but... I'm curious. I've read all your published books, so far, and while I adore them all, I'm a total Sam/Grace girl.

Also, we all know that Shiver is the first of a trilogy, but I was wondering if anything is going to follow Lament The Faerie Queen's Deception and Ballad The Gathering of Faerie.

See ya on LJ! Heather/bella_fox
