Anonymous asked: *Gasp* Your brother is how I picture Sam.
This is a very weird idea to me. He’s twelve years younger than I am, so he’s my baby brother, and so furthermore and therefore, he is always six years old. I did not notice that he had gotten taller until you made me look at the photo again.
Man, he’s tall for a six year old.
Anonymous asked: It is really driving me nuts. Is that font (ie, the font you used in the picture of your copy and paste edits) Garamond? A type of Garamond? A long-lost brother of Garamond? A reeling drunk relative of Garamond?
It’s Adobe Caslon Pro. And I’d call you a geek, but … it seems hypocritical of me.
Anonymous asked: I am confused, what are you cut and paste editing methods? They seem entertaining.
I don’t understand how it’s possible that this ask sounds so much like my current interior monologue.
Once upon a time when I was a tiny maggot, my family used to breed and show purebred dogs. They had heart disease, dandruff, allergies, and a host of other problems. Now I have three non-AKC dogs … and their worst problem is smelling like armpit after they roll in something terrible.
A golden leaf.
moresweetly asked: So I had a dream a few days back about your books. I'm pretty meticulous about my series covers matching, and in my dream I was really upset because the Raven Cycle had been renamed "The Knights Of Owen Glendower," book 3 was called "Gansey's Tears" and the cover was just a pencil drawing of Gansey crying beautifully with the title written in this pixelated sans-serif font and it was all very upsetting. I told my best friend and she felt it imperative that I tell you this.
HOW DID YOU KNOW. HOW.
Except he’s not crying beautifully on it. He’s crying nobly. Because please, he’s Gansey.
ETA, because people are troubled: this was sarcasm. Even I have not seen the cover for the third book.
I’m posting this link to the 2013 Critique Partner Love Connection, even though it is several months old, because there are still writers looking for partners in the comments there, and because NaNoWriMo is just done and people have been asking for another one.
No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite
Anonymous asked: What sort of research did you do for Sinner, to be able to write accurately about the life of a rock star?
Really, it is not so much about being a rock star in specific as being fabulous in general, and I’ve been practicing that for a few years and intend to show my work on July 1, 2014, in bookstores everywhere.
