Giveaway & Interview with Maggie Stiefvater

Happy Friday everyone :) Today, I am so excited to have Maggie Stiefvater visit the blog! Linger, the second book in her Wolves of Mercury Falls trilogy was just released last week...and debuted at number one on the NYT Bestseller List!!! Woot, congrats Maggie! Ok, enough exclamation marks, I hope you enjoy

Hi Maggie, thanks so much for stopping by!

Thanks for having me!

In Linger, I love the contrast between Sam, the romantic, and broken Cole. Who is your favorite to write?

Oh, I don’t know if I can choose. They’re both lovely, broken things and authors love
lovely, broken things, because then you can fix them . . . or not. Both of them (like all my characters) have tiny bits of me put in them to make them run, so I would say that some days Sam is easier, some days, Cole is easier. Just depends on the mood. Some days are definitely Cole days.

Are you a summer or winter person & why?

Neither. I’m a diehard fall person, because I love the edges of things. Fall’s the edge of the year -- where it ends. I love evenings too, because it’s the edge of the day. So it goes to follow that fall evenings are the best.

Isabel orders a cheese & mushroom pizza, what's your fav?

Loads of cheese and some kind of animal that probably had hooves at one point. I’m allergic to preservatives, though, so pizza is hard to come by.

(Yikes, that is a staple in my house!)

We have read your amazing books & seen your amazing doodling, what other talents do you have up your sleeve?

I can also flap my arms and run around screaming when I’m excited. I guess most people know about my music, which is the other part of the Maggie trifecta (there’s songs based on the books available for free download on my websites: and

Shiver had a blue theme, Linger was green...can you tell us about Forever?

No. Because I’m evil that way.

(darn it!)

You can find Maggie all over the net, including: her website, blog, Twitter and Facebook

And now for the extra fun part, one of my readers has a chance to win their own copy of Linger courtesy of Scholastic Canada! Please leave a comment then fill in the form below.
