Today, I got a few advanced review copies of Pip Bartlett’s Guide to Magical Creatures, my joint project with my friend Jackson Pearce. And also: my first book illustration credit. Lover galloped into the room with the package and waved my drawings in front of me. It felt pretty marvelous to see it in person.

    Can u write another book on the Shiver Series about Sam and Grace’s future?

  • I saw this and remembered that I have somehow ended up with an uncorrected copy of the Raven Boys that I believe my mom got from a used bookstore, but it was at least a year ago, and it was just sitting there on my bookshelf while I read tons of other stuff. But I finally read it over the Christmas holidays. Then I read the next two. Then I was obsessed and you’re now my favorite author and I am very proud of the uncorrected proof that I own. Simply because I own it. Anyway, I just really needed to say that.

  • I love the two griffins on the front; their individual characters and the relationship between them are so clear! Makes me really want to read their story (do we find out more about them in the book?)

  • ashley

    I love how you write your books,your my favorite author and my favorite book is the shiver series. I keep looking for a book similar to it but I cant find anything as good and can you write another shiver book about Sam and graces future I just love how I can compare myself to her like i want to be her. I can admit i sometimes daydream that I am her. What would I do if I was in her position?

  • ashley

    am a different Ashley from down there

  • Faith

    Would you ever consider making any if your books into movies? Because I loved them and would definitely audition

    • bookworm135

      I believe The Scorpio Races is being written as a screenplay, but don’t take my word as confirmation.

    • philip

      I would audition for scorpio if it was turned into a movie if I livid close by.

  • Faith

    When you write, do plan the whole plot and side conflicts before you write or do you just write and figure it out as you go. Ive always wondered what the process is before you start the actual writing

  • ttroncalli .

    I’ve commented before but I have to say again… Raven boys series- AMAZING!!! I love, love, love these characters. You are an amazing writer! Keep them coming! I need more Gansey

  • Congrats, Maggie. 🙂

    I admit, this doesn’t really have anything to do with Pip Bartlett, but do you have any tips on buying tin whistles? They’re pretty cheap on amazon, but I just don’t have experience with this instrument, and I don’t want to buy a piece of junk. Can anybody help me out?

    Sinner was perfect! A nice clean ending for Isabel and Cole however that’s stating the obvious. I finished Sinner in a day and was sad to see it end. I won’t say that I wasn’t sad that they didn’t return to Minnesota because I was heart broken. I would love to have a follow up book about the wolves back in Minnesota maybe the gang could get back together get to see a reunion of all the other wolves whom had helped make Sam into the man that he is and them getting to thank Cole for getting them to safety and more human years or something. I just don’t want to see it end.

    Me and my sister have these in depth conversations about what ifs, and we had this idea for what I think would be an awesome book except that I’m not all that good a writer. You know those one-sided mirrors they have at police stations? What if all mirrors were like that, except the other side was some kind of parallel universe? What if the people on the other side were trying to get to us but couldn’t? What if there was one girl who could see through thesse mirrors as well as pass through? What if she woke up one morning and walked into the bathroom all tired and dreary eyed and then reached for her tooth brussh and when she looked up, there was a person standing there as if through a mirror, scrutinizing her? It would be insane but at the same time awesome. Oh and by the way I’ve read almost all of your books and can’t wait to read Pip Bartlett’s Guide to Mythical Creatures. : )

  • Bregrubb

    Oh and I forgot to tell you you should REEEAAAALLLYYY write a sequel to the Scorpio Races.

    • philip

      I agree 150% with you there is so much to talk about

  • philip

    Hi Maggie my name is Philip and I just finished your book scorpio races and was wondering if you were thinking about writing a second one please let me know at

  • Angela Cook

    I bought your first three books online about six months ago. For some reason I (who reads four to five books a week) just couldn’t get into them. So I began linger and read through to forever. I was sad for it to end. Then I saw sinner and immediately downloaded it. I don’t think a book has made my cry for the characters in more years than I can count on toes and fingers. I went through 2 boxes of Kleenex. Thank you for writing so deeply of a characters pain that my heart broke with theirs. For this, I bless you in all your endeavors and send My most inspiring picture. My 3rd son truly enjoying life and spaghetti. Best wishes, A.

    Hey Maggie,

    I would like to say that I love your book especially the Shiver trilogy! But I have some questions to ask you. At the end of Forever you had made the end so mean to us, the readers. So would Grace live as wolf or would she do the crue and die? Also what with Isabell and Cole would they live like a couple California or not?

    Can you please reply on my message (and give me the whole and ;)) ?
