Scott, I've always wanted to ask you if you have a CP that you have read over your work before sending it off? Or is that Justine's job?

 Also, I know the average word count for YA novels, but How many words do yours come out to? One more: On average how many words are each of your chapters?

Movie wise, my post from June is still the last thing I know:

The hardest of my series to write is probably Leviathan. Even a little bit of historical accuracy is a total pain to research.

So I've read in your bio that you split time between NYC and Sydney, and follow you on Twitter mentioning all the awesome places you've been lately. So you seem amazingly well traveled. What are some of the places you've most fallen in love with? (if there are too many, maybe just pluck one or two out randomly)

I would image it would be hard to write Leviathan. Did you have to do a lot of research on other books as well?

Another question:
What inspired you to write Leviathan? (It's so different from your other books that I wondered)

How would you feel if your fans got tattoos (like real, needle permanent tattoos) of things relating to/from your books?

What are some of the places you've most fallen in love with?

One of my fave cities is Buenos Aires. It was a very rich place in the 1910s and 20s, but then the money ran out for several decades. The result is that they have a lot of great buildings from that period that most other cities replaced with boring skyscrapers. Plus, great food.

Scott- you should go look at the writing questions forum! Some of the questions are really interesting. I'd like to see how they get answered!

Ok Scott you asked for random questions, here are some random questions:

What is your favorite form of Meat, and if you're a vegetarian, your fav veggie?

Ninjas or Pirates?

If you combine your two favorite colors what color would they make?

Are you an optimist or a pesimist (I won't judge either way)?

Discovery Channel or Animal Planet?

And lastly... If you could dominate any country which would you choose?

Hmm, I would probably be flattered, but with the usual warning that tattoos are permanent and piercings are not. PERMANENT! So I would probably stay away from any Special facial tats. So far, I haven't seen any real ones, but the fake ones are cool.

Okay, shooting over to the writing questions forum now!

I've always been curious to know how you came up with the idea for Peeps. I've read several books about vampires but none so fun and different. It has so much life and energy.
