Are you as weird as your characters? (Dylan, for example?)
Look at this picture and you can judge for yourself.

Are you on any social networking sites?
I’m currently on Twitter (@TheWeirdists) and Facebook (Katie Ray Kacvinsky).

Will you come and speak in my school/library/event/festival/living room?
Quite possibly. I love meeting face to face with my fans, and I also love Skyping with classrooms. If you’re interested in setting something, please email me: katiekacvinsky(at)uwalumni(dot)com

Can I contact you?
Yes! I love receiving fan mail:  katiekacvinsky(at)uwalumni(dot)com

When will STILL POINT be available in print?
I am working on it! I will definitely spread the word if/when there is news on a print edition.

How old are you?
I have been celebrating my 29th birthday for eight years now.

Why did you self publish Second Chance?
My publishers felt that First Comes Love was fine as a standalone novel. Gray and Dylan strongly disagree. They wouldn’t get out of my head until I continued their story. Instead of watching this manuscript collect dust on my desk, I self published it in hopes of creating some buzz. Ideally, I would like a publisher to pick it up so it has a wider distribution market, but what matters is, IT’S AVAILABLE.

Why is the cover of Second Chance so different from First Comes Love?
The paperback of First Comes Love is coming out May 7th, 2013, and I tried to match the cover art of Second Chance with that cover. I personally like the paperback cover art better. I’m not a huge fan of having my character’s faces on book covers–I would prefer to let my readers imagine what they look like.

What do you look for in a good book?
Good writing. Period. If the writing isn’t strong, I won’t get passed page one.

    MADDIE – DER WIDERSTAND GEHT WEITER (German version of Middle Ground)
    ISBN 978-3-414-82338-0 comes in Boje-Verlag at February 2013 (Hardcover ca. 16 Euro)

    found it in the Paperback from the German version of Awaken, that I buyed for Chrismas.
    I like to read this good written book, and look forward for more Maddie-Books.
    If I get the chance to read it in english language, too,
    I would like to know what feelings brings me the original text, because I think, the best is to feel the words, and not only to read it. And it gives me the chance to rehearse my english. 🙂

    Greetings from Germany

    I love the awaken books.
    They are thrilling but also make you think about the problems society has.
    I was wondering if there will be a 3rd book any time soon?

    Greetings Rebecca

I cannot wait until the third book of “awaken” comes out! I am obsessed with your books, they’re so exciting and you always leave us with cliff hangers!

    Dear Misses Kacvinsky,
    I’m such a big fan and I have to say your books are so amazing! The first part of “first comes love” was so great I’ve read it in only 1 day, because I couldn’t stop. Sometimes I was crying, sometimes I had to laugh and then I said to one of my best friends you totally have to read this book and of course she also read it in one day…
    Would you tell me more about your inspirations for Awaken?
    It would be awesome if you awnser me 🙂
    Thanks for all your greatness,
    Jana ❤

    Hi :9
    I’m a big fan of your books! They are just awesome!
    I read the first part of the awaken series 3 times and it’s still not boring.
    Because of your book my best friend started to read, at first she doesn’t
    Like books at all and then she read your book. She loves your book and also do I.
    One question: When will the 3rd part of the awakening series come out?
    I apologize for my very bad English, I’m actually from Austria
    Liebe Grüße aus Österreich 😉

    I blogged about the two first books on my german blog http://www.buecherkisteblog.wordpress.com Check it out!

  18. Cathy Eckersley says:

    Why is “Still Point” only available in electronic format? My students want a paper version as not everyone has a device to use!

  19. Is there any chance you’d write a book about Serena and Mike? I loved them both in Finally Forever.

  20. Shirley says:

  25. Berit says:

    I love all of your books!!! But when come second chance and finally forever out in Germany??? 🙂

  26. Romina says:

    Dear Katie,
    I finished the awaken series yesterday and oh my god. I cried so hard. It’s the best book ever and I can’t express how badly I want everyone to read it. Some points were so exciting and nerve racking that I had to bite myself or else I would have screamed. It totally should be a movie.
    I have to say, I didn’t expect the book to be so good since the second book wasn’t really popular but the third book is the best out of the series. I just want to say a massive thank you to you. Awaken is my favorite series in this whole world.
    I wish I could see you in person & talk about the book but I guess I have to work with social media a bit. I don’t even know if you’ll see this, because you were so inactive here lately, but yeah. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS ADVENTURE I’VE LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT.

    yours truly,
    Romina xx
