My beautiful and brilliant editor said yes!  So I am allowed to tell you that the dragon on the cover of Book 11 is from a tribe called...

 

(DRUMROLL PLEASE...)

 

THE SILKWINGS!

 

Eeep!  Tada!  Now speculate away!  :)  :)  :)

 

Also, we'll be having an official full cover art reveal on the forums very soon, so stay tuned for that...it is SOOOOOOO beautiful!  It might even be my favorite cover so far (although that's a tough competition!).  I can't wait for you to see it!

Tui, are there more Legends planned? 

Also, can you please clarify how age gaps in relationships and aging as a whole works in Pyrrhia? It's been a topic of a lot of contention in the fandom lately, it would be nice to get a clear answer!

Thank you Tui for answering my question! :)

 

For both of you: What was your favorite book/series when you were young? What's your favorite now?

 

Thank you both so much for all the work you've put into the series! Mike's art is fantastic as is Tui's writing :) I was completely wowed by the quality of the GN

Tui-

I'm assuming that you've had writers block before, like every other author, so how did you get past that? Or what motivated you to keep writing?

 

Mike-

*GASPS* Is that your dog??? What's his/her name? Also, I love your profile pic. :D

Were there any other tribes you came up with when you started Wings of Fire and decided not to do if so what were they and will they be in the third arc?

I love that, too, Mike!  And I agree with the person who posted previously that I want to know your dog's name!  :)  Mine is Sunshine -- and we also have a new(ish) (he's two now, but still feels like a puppy!) puppy whose name is Rainbow Dog -- Bo for short!  I think using dogs' expressions for the dragons is perfect -- Sunshine has perfected a woeful hungry Clay face, and Bo often looks like Kinkajou when he wants to play.  :)

seawings28: What was your favorite book/series when you were young? What's your favorite now?

 

I would read anything and everything by Roald Dahl, or any Encyclopedia Brown book. I also have an enduring love for Tintin. As for now...eep! I don't know! Maybe I should draw less and read more :)

Tui: Dogs are awesome, and congrats on your new one! Ours is Heidi - a terrier mix - and she was a HUGE influence on Clay's visual personality in the book.

There are pictures going around saying that that’s the cover of Book 11, But you haven’t released it yet? So is it not the cover?

I really like that name and I CANNOT wait for book 11! The SilkWing on the cover looks so gorgeous (Joy Ang did a fabulous job!). Are you allowed to tell us this beautiful protagonist's name, or is that reveal being saved for another day?

SILKWINGS! That is just the prettiest name ever! How did you come up with it!? They are so pretty! BTW does their tribe have color limitations or is it any color of butterfly? You know, so I can draw one!

OK, two quick last questions -- I can't believe an hour has gone by already!  This is too much fun...  :)

 

seawings28: For both of you: What was your favorite book/series when you were young? What's your favorite now?

 

I love Anne MacCaffrey's Pern books for younger readers -- Dragonsong, Dragonsinger, and Dragondrums -- and I was also a big fan of A Wrinkle in Time and its sequels, all the Nancy Drew books, and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (oh, that's not a series, but I loved it!).  Now there are SO MANY books I love -- Grace Lin's Where the Mountain Meets the Moon; the Amulet books by Kazu Kibuishi; Tooth and Claw by Jo Walton (an adult book about dragons); the Temeraire series by Naomi Novik (historical fiction about dragons); and the Jinx books by Sage Blackwood...I wish I could list a million more, but I'll stop there!

 

ponydolphin57: I'm assuming that you've had writers block before, like every other author, so how did you get past that? Or what motivated you to keep writing?

 

Hmmm -- for me, the best motivation is a deadline, and a bunch of gently stern emails from my lovely editor!  But what really helps me get through writers block is my writing journal, where I complain about everything I think is wrong with the book until I figure out how to fix it.  :)  And having someone to talk to for brainstorming, like my sister or my very patient husband -- that helps so much, too!

 

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH -- this has been so great!  and YAY MIKE YOU ARE WONDERFUL!!!!  :)  :)  :)

I've long headcanoned the SeaWings as something almost like Atlantis (technologically/scientifically advanced. The research tribe. Intelligent (HECK! They seem to be the only bilingual tribe!), advanced and equal society, etc.) Is this true in any way??

Thanks to everyone who joined in and asked questions! I had an amazing time and it was so nice to meet you. And thanks to Tui!! You've created an amazing world that I really love playing around in.

Tui - which tribe did you have the most fun coming up with? one thing i really loved about WoF was discovering how each tribe worked/what their queen was like - it was so much fun in the first arc(and second with WT and EP)! Also seeing the NightWing's past in Darkstalker Legends was amazing!

 

Also - can you tell us about any more Winglets? i really loved those and it helped pass time in between books - will we get one before Book 11( this year wait is killing me;) ) Thanks!

I'm new here. 

 

I like quite a few book series 

 

I WILL be inactive 

 

Is insanely hyped for book 11. 

 

Tui: Do you have any plans for other book series?  Do you ever have to "fight" the publishers between extending a proven concept (e.g. developing more sequels to WoF) vs publishing some new ideas you have?

@Tui.

 

I have a few questions for you. Most mysterious IceWing themed since they're my favorite. Gosh, THAT was HARD to choose! :)  

 

1. Is there a possibility of an IceWing animus during the time of the dragonets of destiny?

 

2. Could you tell us more about IceWing customs and their 'cool' culture? Like all of the Gifts and animus dragons?

 

3. Do you ever plan on releasing a complete guide to the world of Wings of Fire? If so, when, and what about? I really hope everything down to the last rainforest dirt speck caught in Winter's superb talon.

 

4. Which dragon in the graphic novel do you think turned out the most like how you imagined?

 

 

@Mike.

 

I have three questions for you.

 

1. What type of dragon was your favorite to draw? Why?

 

2. What dragon do you think you're most like? Why?

 

3. What medium did you use for the graphic novel? From what little bit I've seen, it looks seriously awesome!

 

 

 

Thank you SSSSSOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH for your AWESOME WORK! PLEASE keep it coming!

 

-Storm

 

P.S. :D I love you guys more than every pound of Clay!
