You've been on tour for all of your books so far -- CINDER, SCARLET, CRESS and now FAIREST. In fact, your tour never seems to end! What is your favorite thing about touring? What is the most difficult part of touring?
The best part of touring is meeting fans, and seeing how excited some of them are to meet ME! It never stops being surreal. Also, hotel room service is a nice perk. The most difficult part is being away from my family, though, especially on this tour. You can feel like you're missing out on a lot of stuff at home after a while.
Fans of The Lunar Chronicles -- known as Lunartics!--have been growing by leaps and bounds. What do you believe sets your fans apart from fans of other book series?
I am constantly SO impressed by the enthusiasm and creativity that my fans show! Since the very beginning, when CINDER came out, I've had fans coming to the events in cosplay and bringing me totally awesome fanart and gifts. One of my all-time favorites was from a southern California fan who made an AMAZING stained glass art piece of the Cinder shoe. I couldn't believe she gave it to me!
You travel so much for the Lunar Chronicles. When do you write? Where do you write?
I try to maintain some sort of schedule when I'm at home, writing about 4-6 hours a day, though it can vary. I do a fair amount of work on my treadmill desk at home, and I also love to write at cafes and restaurants. I spend many afternoons with local writing friends - it adds a nice social aspect to an otherwise solitary job! What I'm particularly excited for, though, is that my husband is building me a writing studio in our backyard, which will be like a little dream cottage. I can't wait.
