If you could live in any of the universes you created, which one and why?

Uglies. Hoverboards.


About how often do quotes from reviews you write appear on the books?

I blurb two or three books a year. (Out of 20 or so that I'm sent.)

Also Leviathan was nominated for the South Carolina Young Adult book award a few years ago. Congrats.

Thank you!

Also, which do you like better, Batman, Spiderman, or Superman?

Spider. Bat. Super. In that order. (And Spider-man has a hyphen!)

What's your favourite David Bowie album. Mine's a tie between Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and Station to Station.

YOU ARE CORRECT IN THIS ASSESSMENT OF BOWIE'S WORK. (Probably Station to Station just wins.)

AGH yes I was wondering where in NYC scott lived so I can stalk him...

East Village.

As a writer do you find it flattering that people have a lot of interest seeing your work being brought to a visual platform (tv, movies)?

I'm all about the money.

ON THAT NOTE! DC or Marvel??

Grew up Marvel, but adulthood has leaned toward DC.

Can I make up Hoffman's first name?

DO IT.


Also, Scott, you're awesome for taking time to do the meet ups!

You are all awesome for your enthusiasm!

Do you go on tumblr?

I do not myself tumbl. But I do look at others'.

Because she says that she built HQ to Tally in Specials...

Yeah, she built the new awesome secret one!

<i>Também sou brasileira, Cristina. Se precisar de ajuda, é só falar.</i>

Bom dia!


If I want to become a writer do I have to leave my nice comfortable Winter wonderland/God forsaking land where poplar bears dwell and move to NY or some big city? 

No. Writers can live everywhere. It's our superpower.

WAS HOFFMAN CALLED HOFFMAN BECAUSE OF FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST??

Alas, no.

And I think that you should have justine get on and do a meetup with you sometime...  (And hey, maybe you could just make it an author party... and invite other epic peeps too...... Just a thought

Hmm. Maybe next time she has a book out.

Scott I know from writing and reading YA books that it's really hard to make cool human main characters, WHY IS THIS?! And you seem to have gotten better that it Deryn> Tally how did you manage to do this?

This is the mystery of fictional people. HOW ARE THEY SO COOL THEY AREN'T EVEN REAL?

What is working for the Society like?

Lousy pay, but quite exciting.

Also, new book: 1 protagonist, 2, or eight, and are they boys/girls/aliens of indeterminate gender?

Two protags, both female.

And even if you are satisfied more with Leviathan, I just want to say that Uglies is better in every way...

THIS IS YOUR RIGHT AS A READER.

Inspiration to write in the first place?

My family are good storytellers.

HE PROBABLY KNOWS WHAT MY TUMBLR IS (i'm so so so sorry scott if so)

Now I will go look for it.

Oh, damn!

I calculated the wrong time zone and ended up losing the event! I'm so sad!

As consolation I'll read the answers he wrote here.



Maybe there's still time?

I will try ...

As I have difficulties with the English language I'm using Google translator to write and so I apologize if something is wrong.

Hello, Mr. Westerfeld.

About 1 month ago you told me on Twitter that might come to Brazil soon. You told me to stay tuned. Is there something already programmed or is it just a desire of yours?

“Is Goliath the end of the Leviathan universe? I know you are writing the Manual of Aeronautics, but that won’t have any stories in it. Is there an Extras style book planned?”

Nothing planned, but I have a “prequel” to Goliath, sort of. It was a short story I was writing and decided to dump because I wanted to do a whole trilogy. And I mean to publish it sometime.

From another meetup. HOPE!

“Any Leviathan movie news that you would like to share?”

A contract is being written. Until it is signed, I can say no more!


\And this. Hope.

There's an interview that you said your new book would be a meta-paranormal romance. Is that right? What does it means?

YOU WILL HAVE TO GUESS FOR NOW.

1. how did you come up with a relationship with zane in pretties

Like I said, it was an accident.

2. is there going to be an uglies movie???

THIS IS A POSSIBILITY.

How did you get the idea to have Dr Barlow as a character in the Leviathan series?

I always liked her as a real historical person.

What would Alek and Deryn think about Legend of Korra if they ever watched it?

Deryn would love it. Alek would be, all, wha?

Also, *gives you a piece of virtual strawberry rhubarb pie*

*eats*

So what did Lilit do after Goliath? (Meet Adela and fall in love is my best guess.)

I think the two of them work for the Zoological Society.

Why did u decide to give David a complex haircut in the manga? He's never been to a barber so shouldn't he have kind of crazy person hair?

That haricut was supposed to look a bit hand-done. Like with a knife.

Dr. Barlow mentions on a number of occasions that she thinks the lorises are "defective" in the books. Was this her attempt at humour, or did she actually imagine them differently? If so, how different were her expectations for them?

She didn't expect Bovril to bond to two people, because that's only supposed to happen if the two people are in love. BUT SHE DIDN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT IT MEANT.

Where did you get your ideas for the Risen Empire?

From all the space operas ever.

Did Volger ever have a girlfriend?

This is unclear. He seems to be a fairly confirmed bachelor.


Right now I sent a lot of mails to the Publisher in Turkey

Let me know what they say!

I'd like to know what dystopian books inspired you.

Hmm. Movies like Mad Max, and books like 1984. And all the sf ever.

hey scott, it is against copyright laws if i were to make a t-shirt with a picture from one of the Leviathan books on?  like a screen-printed over the internet one?  i totally understand if it's not, but if that's the case, you should make official ones for us :3

It's kind of against copyright law but if you only make 1 they will not arrest you.

Which vegetable would you rather be, a carrot or a zucchini?

Carrot. Because they're smarter than zucchini and easier to spell.

My friend Cate would like to know what became of Jaspert Sharp? If you're not too overwhelmed with questions that is.

He served his country well and became the captain of an airbeast one day. The end.

Oh, also, why do none of your book pairings say 'i love you' to each other? (off the top of my head, at least, I can't remember any mutual exchange of the words.)

Doesn't Zane say it to Tally? (But she doesn't say it back, is what you mean.) That's true. Maybe it's more interesting that way?

Do you have an easier time coming up with main or side characters?

Side characters are much easier. They can be funny, without carrying all the weight. (Like being a cool uncle is easier than being a cool parent.)

everybody who ships adelit JOIN HANDS

*joins prayer circle*

do you like tea? if so what's your favorite kind?

Chamomile and hibiscus.

The author of Percy Jackson said you need a well paying side job if you want to be a writer, is that true for the world or just in the U.S?

Everywhere.

Scott, you're awesome. Just saying. Also, what is your favorite Crime/mystery show?

Um, Fringe. (Is usually pretty crimey.)

Does anyone else ship Tazza and a random hydrogen sniffer?

No. No one does that.

I like the idea of Bovril and loris #2.

They are brood siblings!

What is your dream school? (doesn't have to be a school that actually exists)

Hmm. A school where I learn all the languages every spoke, but in my sleep.

Garlic is delicious.

I'll be there in late November. Sao Paulo November 24-25. Rio November 27-28. Watch my blog for more details.

Hi back at her!
