Marissa Meyer is so cute! She’s pretty theatrical so she was really entertaining the whole time. She talked a little about Heartless and mentioned one of her favorite scenes is a mad hatter tea party. At the tea party everyone has to get up and share a talent, so she picked 6 volunteers from the audience and gave them talents they had to improv on – which would be my nightmare, but they all did a good job.
She spent most of the time answering questions from the audience. They were almost all about Lunar Chronicles. She said she couldn’t pick a favorite OTP or character from the series. There is an Iko centered graphic novel coming out next year. And what I thought was most interesting was that she wrote Fairest in only 9 days and the finished copy is pretty much the same as how she first wrote it!
I got there early enough to get pretty decent seats for me and Amanda so we were able to get in the signing line pretty early and didn’t have much of a wait.
It was definitely a fun event that I’m so glad I went to. I’m so happy that there are more author events happening in my area – and that I’ve found someone who wants to go to them with me. I’m really excited to get started on Heartless!
