Me in PW

There’s a cool profile of me in Publisher’s Weekly this week. Much is revealed about Leviathan, but in a non-spoilery way.

Click here to read it!

You can’t see this on the online version, but they use this awesome steampunk portrait of me by Theo Black.

  1. seriously. I wish I was famous enough to have a themed portrait of me.
    Does anyone know how to do intaglio/banknote style portraits? :3

  2. I really want goggles like that…that was a cool article, too. You’ve NEVER spoken to the artist? That’s pretty entertaining. Do you plan on, um, actually speaking with him by the time the book comes out?

    Also, are you coming to San Diego during the tour?

  3. ok so i just looked up Archduke Franz Ferdinand and guess what?!?! he has a mustache
    like a full on curled-up-at-the-sides mustache

  4. I ♥ steampunk! It’s so awesome! Love the goggles (I wish I had steampunky goggles)! πŸ˜‰
    That article makes me want to read Leviathan even more!!! I didn’t even think it was possible to want it more than I already did, but I guess I was wrong.

  5. gah! another post and so soon!
    ohh ahhh i like the picture and i tried not to spoil myself with the article so i sckipped some of it, can’t wait until the book comes out and u start touring , maybe you’ll come here * inner fans cheer* then again, time says contrary * inner fans wails*

  6. scott, you’re so cool!

    i totally had a dream the other night, starring you and justine!
    We were in a book store and I didn’t like the books you guys were trying to make me read….


  7. That’s a pretty awesome overview, except for one little factual error: Keith Thompson illustrated Kenneth Oppel’s novel Darkwing (although I’m not sure if that was just for the softcover release). Either way, it was something I immediately recognised when you posted the first piece of art.

    Great portrait!

  8. Well spotted, Ally-wa! Keith said told the interviewer that, but she missed it. (And maybe I forgot about it when I talked to her.)

  9. AHHHHH i’m commenting after scott!!!!! i just read the article and almost fell out of my chair with joy. every time hear even the slightest bit more news of Leviathan i go crazy!!!! i’m soooo extremely excited. And Scott that picture is pretty snappy.

  10. I gotta say, I’m pretty envious of your German goggles.

    So glad to hear more about the plot/ideas behind Leviathan! I can’t wait for it. I started snooping around on Keith Thompson’s website and I’m amazed by his work.

  11. WOW! I can’t wait for this book now. There’s just one thing bugging me, how excatly do you pronounce the name of your book(s)?

    Love all the books of yours I’ve read so far. You just can’t disappoint. πŸ™‚

  12. ping to The OTHER Tally Youngblood: haha!8)

  13. Okay, I REALLY hope he didn’t mean it when he said that this might be his last big series. First Harry Potter books go, then possibly Scott Westerfeld’s–I’m going to run out of things to read! (Well, probably not, but still….)

    I think I’m speaking for a lot of wanna-be authors out there when I say that I really, REALLY hope that I don’t have to start out with editing those dreaded cinderblocks called “textbooks.”

    On a random note that should probably be put on the last discussion board, because I realised it from that video: am I the only one who was totally pronouncing “Leviathan” wrong? I thought it was pronounced ‘Lee-vee-uh-than,’ not ‘Leh-vi-uh-than’!

  14. Ping to Name-la: As I’m a fast reader, I suffer from the dreaded disease of n o t actually looking at the words I read. So when I look at Leviathun, I pronounce it:
    Because I am the MASTER of mispronounciation.

  15. ping to Name-La: well if you run out of books to read you should read the luxe series by Anna Godbersen. they are really good.
    ping to Holly-Wa: i am a fast reader to and i like to wait till an entire siries comes out so i don’t have to wait for the next one to come out, i just finished the first 3 books in the luxe series, and i recently discovered that there was a new one coming out! 8( and now i have to wait 3 months for the next one 2 come out! *tear* 8(
    ping to every1: i won’t be able to blog for a week because i am going to my grandparents house in North Carolina and they have no internet service! 8( *aaaaaaggggggghhhhhhhhh* goodbye my blogging buddies! til next time!

  16. Lol nice goggles!!!!!!!! And i love the way you changed your site!!!!!!!!!! It was time for an upgrade!!!!!!!!

  17. First of all I’d like to say I approve of the upgraded site. Much better. Secondly, I’d like to say I’m very very very excited to read this, and for the tour in Washington state. LOL I’m not usually into military fantasy stuff like this, but you wrote it so I’ll give it a try =)

  18. idk why, but just glancing at that w/ a glimpse using my peripheral (sp?) vision made me see Mike Rowe when he used to host Dirty Jobs…hmmm

  19. Dude that is a bubbly pic… i don’t really understand anything bout the book really but i plan to read it anyway (i’m sure i’ll figure it out)
