I'd have to check this to be sure, but I believe Levana literally means "Queen of the Moon."

I try to give most of my characters meaningful names like that, and many of them are inspired by their fairy tale counterparts, too. I will often change a character's name multiple times until I find one that feels just perfect!(less)

Winter is mostly set on Luna, so we're in a society surrounded by people with the ability to manipulate and control, and it's really complicated parts of the plot for me! I've been able to make it work just fine, but I could have saved myself a lot of heartache by putting more restrictions on Lunars from the start.(less)

"Yeah?"

I'm sorry you couldn't make it down for the launch event. I'm afraid I don't have any Seattle events currently scheduled. The closest is at the Auburn library in June.

Thank you! Winter got pushed back because I needed more time with it, and also because it makes more sense to read Fairest first. I hope you'll enjoy them both!

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.

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.

Thank you for writing such a brilliant story and I wish you the utmost greatest success for all of it.

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 :))
