1. Event Recap: Marissa Meyer at Once Upon A Time

Yes, yet another recap. Promise it's the last one for this week. Last week just happened to be an insane week for author events. Right after the Fierce Reads Tour, Marissa Meyer had a date at one of our fave indies, Once Upon A Time. Even though I had just seen Marissa at Fierce Reads (I'm not stalking her, I swear!) I was excited that she was getting her own date the OUAT.

Marissa started the event off by talking about how she got into writing. She wrote fan fiction for Sailor Moon for a long time (maybe 10 years) before she decided to tackle a full blown novel.  Someone asked Marissa if  she would ever take one of her old fan fics and re-write it into something new and she said no, but that they were still available on the internet for anyone who wanted to read them. 

Marissa let slip a few details about book 2 of The Lunar Chronicles. It's going to be the story of Red Riding Hood (yay!) and Cinder will appear in all four books. Also, the character of Wolf sounds super dark and sexy. Swoon.  I really, really can't wait to read Scarlet. 

I can't remember what Marissa was talking about here but it's pretty cute. After more questions Marissa got down to business and started signing books. I had my copy of Cinder signed the last time Marissa was in town so I just said hi and fangirled a bit. Marissa is so cool and nice. I had a great time at the event.

We did a Good Morning with Read Now Sleep Later last time; this time it's a good night!

Who: Marissa Meyer, author of Cinder

What: We'll attend the signing at 7 and then congregate next door at
Rocky Cola Cafe for munchies. They are open til 10 pm and have great diner food!

RSVP: You don't have to RSVP but we highly recommend that you reserve your copy before May 31 if you are going to buy one*. I'm calling on them tomorrow to make sure they hold me a copy! Call 818-248-9668 to reserve.

*If you already have a copy of Cinder, you will need to at least make a purchase to get a signing line ticket. Once Upon a Time is a local indie bookstore, and in order to stay in business as well as continue to provide you chances to meet your favorite big-name authors from around the country, they need to sell some books!

Contest: The bookstore is also having a contest--bring your best Cinder shoe and you could win a gift card!

Ok, RSVP: I DO kinda want to know if anyone's coming, so leave a comment below :D or email frootjoos at gmail dot com

7. CINDER Cover Reveal

CINDER by Marissa Meyer is probably one of the most anticipated titles for us in 2012. And we want to get the buzz going on this fantastic book and series that combines fairy tales, the future and space. This is not your ordinary fairy-tale retelling...

So watch this space for the big cover reveal later today at 5PM EST.

In the meantime, here are some "rejected" covers that we will be posting throughout the day to whet your appetite and for you to guess what the story is all about....

Marissa was able to get some friends to help out with our cover reveal and they drew up some ideas of what they would have the Cinder cover look like.

First Cover: The Pumpkin Carriage Spaceship by Leilani Adams


Second Cover: The Prince Charming Alien Abduction by Kaya Aman

Stay tuned for cover #3!
