Graceful and Candymakers 2
This post used to be about problems getting some of the books from Amazon but that’s been worked out, so Thank you all for your support while you’re waiting for Graceful, and once i finish the Candymakers sequel I’ll do my best to catch up with posting your comments and answering questions. Thank you for your patience!
I am very excited to read GRACEFUL. I love the Willow Falls series. Keep writing!
Hey, Wendy! Good luck finishing your book. Graceful is a great title! I’m going to get it the day it comes out!
Same!!! I love the Willow Fall series!!! It’s so magical
I love the willow falls sires!!! Its so good, it kept me excited, and turning the page. I love it so much, I cannot wait for the next book!!! Please keep on writing!!!
I love it too! I hope she keeps on writing!!! It is such a great book!!! Graceful is a really clever tittle. Can’t wait to read it!!!!
I LOVE her books too I so badly want to read graceful and all of her other books she has written it would be my dream if I could meet her and read all her books.
Dear Wendy Mass,
I love writing, and write for about three hours a day. You’ve really inspired me, and you, (along with J.K. Rowling, Emma Watson, and Rachel Maddow) are my biggest role models. I LOOOOVE the Willow Falls series, and Leap Day. I know you don’t really have it in your control, but could you request Netflix to make movies for WF? Also, I would really love a sequel to Leap Day! It’s so amazing how you sort of showed the future of small characters and went into everyone’s lives. Some ideas for a possible sequel:
-More about Katy possibly being lesbian
-Either Katy, Zoey, Josie, or Megan’s mom has a baby
-Some more romance
-Maybe you could go into the lives of some animals? (E.g., a random toad hopping on the sidewalk)
-More about kids being underestimated
-My name somewhere in the book (even if it’s just a passer byer)
I wish I was there when you wrote the Willow Falls series, so I could give some ideas!! (I was only two when it came out). Are you still writing books??? I haven’t heard anything!
Thank you so much,
Thank you for your great letter and I’m very honored 🙂 I loved writing Leap Day, it was probably the most fun book to write except for Finally, book 2 of Willow Falls. I love your ideas for a sequel but I’m not sure I’ll go back to writing Young Adult versus middle-grade, at least for a little while. Netflix would be awesome, let’s send them some telepathic Willow Falls mojo LOL. As for new books, I’ll have a graphic novel out sometime in the next two years, hopefully you won’t be too old to read it 🙂 xo, Wendy
Words cannot describe how excited I am for the next Willow Falls book and the Candymakers sequel! (I just read The Candymakers for the first time a couple of months ago and absolutely loved it! It pleasantly surprised me [multiple times :p] !) I absolutely love the title for the next Willow Falls book! The fact that it’s about Grace and is titled Graceful makes me extremely happy! It’s so adorable!!! I can’t wait to read it and see what’s in store for all of the characters!! 😀
Oooooooo!!!!!! The next Willow Falls book is going to be called Graceful? I love it!!!!!!!!!! When do you think it’ll be out? My sister and I can’t wait until it comes out!!!!!! Candymakers too!!!! Any new news on the movie?
Another Willow Falls book?! Yayyyy!
Nice name for The fifth book, and that’s pretty awesome too! I recently read Candymakers (for the third time_ and have a few questions, like does Daisy really have a brother? Will we meet Phillip’s brother in the second book? Is everyone who read candymakers (that’s a girl) eventually in love with Phillip?
Your questions might be answered in the new book. I hope you like that too!
Good luck finishing your book. Graceful is a great title! I’m going to get it the day it comes out!!! My great-aunt got me 11 birthdays signed by you for my birthday a year and a half ago, and its still my favorite gift ever!
I’m GRACEFULLY waiting for GRACEFUL to hit shelves! SOOOOOO EXCITED! Willow Falls is the best!!! Also, you should be getting a letter in the mail sometime soon (Whenever I send it, that is). Thanks for teh new blog post! 🙂
In a While Crocodile,
Hi Miss Mass!
i am SO excited about this book!! any idea when it will come out?? i also love the candymakers!! question: do you like to read the same kind of books you write? what genres are your favorites? i love fantasy and sci-fi. chances are, if it has something that deosn’t actually exsist, i like it. 🙂 do you like music? how do you come up with ideas for books? sorry about all the questions. what can i say, i’m a curious gal! 🙂 well, i have to go, but please write me back IF you have time. thanks!!
Hi, I’m sure you found the book by now, I love fantasy and SF too!! And yes, on music, although I can’t listen while writing, and ideas for books are usually things I’d like to read! :o). So sorry for how long this took to reply (!) but sending a hug!!! Wendy
I just finished up Heaven a few weeks ago! It was great! And Graceful, What a clever title since it involves Grace a lot.
Dear Ms. Mass
I am so happy that the new Willow Falls book is almost done! When do you think it will be able to get published and come out in stores? Oh, well, hopefully soon. Wow, when you posted that there would be a new Willow Falls book, I though that it would be soooooooo long! i guess there still is quite a few more months to go before it would come out in stores. But, you posted about the new book in February and now it is almost June! Wow. i bet that book will just (seem) to fly out.
Okay, with that being said, I just wanted to tell you that i don’t usually use Amazon to get books, because i live in Canada and i would just go to the nearest book store (or, if i don’t feel the need to buy it, the library) and buy the book that i want. Or i would order it online from Chapters.indigo.ca!
Thank you, Ms. Mass! i am very excited about the new book! 🙂
P.S. i like writing letters to authors and sending it to them, but it doesn’t seem very clear where the address i would send it to on this website.
This is amazing news to hear that you will be writing more Willow Falls books!
I really like the name that was chosen for it. What I find really cool is that I’m in the middle of writing a book of what I think would happen next in the series! Once GRACEFUL comes out, I will be able to compare the two pieces and see what are the similarities and differences.
Thank you soooooooooooooooooo much for taking everyone’s suggestions to write the next book.
A very excited,
Graceful is the perfect title!
awe mean old amazon 🙁 eeccckkkkk cant wait for the new booksssss. p.s have you thout about mabby a sequel for every soul a star?? :DD
Hi Wendy! I love all your books and even though I am too old to read Space Taxi my younger brother is going to read it. I was just wondering when Graceful is coming out, and if they are going to make a movie for Candymakers. I just want to let you know that I have a autographed copy of Pi in the Sky and when I read it last summer, I finished it in a few hours!! I am one of your biggest fans!
Aw well, Mrs. Mass, we appreciate you clarifying all that and so glad to learn the title of the next Willow Falls book! I’m sure it will be a wonderful wrap up of my favorite series 🙂
Aw well, Mrs. Mass, we appreciate you clarifying all that and so glad to learn the title of the next Willow Falls book! I’m sure it will be a wonderful wrap up of my favorite series 🙂 Also SO happy to hear about the Candymakers sequel! Hoping for it to also have the bittersweet drama the first had? Maybe more secrets revealed? Like the one mentioned on the last page from Logan’s point of view? Can’t wait for that to be revealed! 😀 So looking forward to this!
I am soooooooo excited for the Candymakers sequel. Its too bad about the amazon thing, but oh well. Good luck with the AWESOME new books you are writing! You are my favorite author in the WORLD! I am a super big fan of your AMAZING work! Keep writing your GREAT books! (I’m serious, I couldn’t live without your books.) Anyway, good luck!!!!! ;):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)):):)!
Wow so sorry about amazon. I am SOOOOOOO excited for Graceful!!!!!!! Do you know the release date yet? I started geocaching after your blog post about it and it’s so much fun! Thanks so much! Good luck writing the Candymakers sequel! I’m sure it will be amazing! Sorry for all the exclamation points!!!!!!!
Your #1 fan
PS. have you read The fault in our Stars by john green? If not I highly recommend it.
I love your books 🙂
Amazon is awsome but not when they dont put your books on it. You are so great at writing. Bye :).
OMG!!! Yay I cannot wait for Graceful!!! I bet it will be amazingly, awesomely, crazily awesome! I wish it would come out sooner, i cannot wait… 😀 😀 😀 😀 thank you sooo much for writing you are absolutely amazing!!!
I’m super excited about Graceful and the Candymakers sequel!
I love reading. I have three favorite authors and you’re one of them! Jenny L. Cote and Trenton Lee Stewart. My favorite series is the willow falls series and my favorite single is Every Soul a Star. Keep us posted. 🙂 Thanks for writing great books.
I luv your book Matilda
I lovelovelovelovelove the willow falls series and the CANDYMAKERS cant wait till the new books come out!!! please check out my fansite for u wendy @ilovewendy.com thanks
Hi Ms. Mass!
I was wondering if there is a certain address for me to send fan mail to? It’s not part of a school project or anything, I just wanted to write you an actual, physical letter 🙂
Thanks so much!
Have a great day,
I love that you still use pen and paper but truly the website is the best place to write me. Thank you!
Hi! I’m a huge fan of ALL your books! I’m so sorry to hear that you’ve been having trouble with Amazon! So glad you’re finishing up Graceful soon,. It’ll probably be great , like the rest of the series. By the way, here are a few reasons why the Willow falls series is my favorite:
•Tara’s birthday is the exact same day as mine, July 13th (!!!)
•Grace’s new and awesome powers
•The “Aussie slang”
•Sawyer and all the terrible things he does to embarrass Rory
•Rory’s dad’s hair
•Willow falls (by the way, is it a real town?)
And that just STARTS my list!
I have one question; when does GRACEFUL come out, since you’re already finishing it soon?
Wishing my “fangirly” support,
Just some thoughts in general (though I’ll say shame on Amazon!)…
For years my first born son (now 14 years old) and I have exchanged books to read, beginning with the Harry Potter series and leading into other young-adult series. We share a strong love of reading and enjoy talking about what we have read. Going to the library was fun, because he would come home with stacks of books to try. When my daughter (the middle child, 11 years old, and the only girl) begged me to read her latest book, I’ll admit I was reluctant to read it at first. She likes reading, but I would rarely find her picking up a book in her spare time or reading if it was not related to a school assignment. She had always challenged me with finding a book she truly enjoyed. I felt disappointment in not having that common bond. (How could you not love to be so engrossed in a book that you’d do almost anything to get back to reading it?!?) Being a mom in her forties, I didn’t want to read a silly book about young-girl drama written in a childish style. But, let me tell you, I loved your book, A Mango-Shaped Space. I admire your writing style, your creative choice of words. I was not bored. I even cried at the part when Mango died and the family had to bury the cat. The topic of synesthesia was fascinating, too — I never heard of it!
My daughter had read several other books you’ve written in the past year. In our last trip to Barnes & Noble, she picked up three more of your books, and was thrilled to see that these were signed copies, due to a presentation you had previously given at this location. I thank you so much for your books. My daughter is extremely choosy in many things, but has selected you as one of her favorite authors!
We wish you continued success, creativity, and enjoyment in your writing career!
That’s so sad, Miss Mass!
I mean, I thought amazon was reliable!!! My mom always gets stuff from there!!!
I’m glad I’ve finished all those books.
I CANT WAIT FOR GRACEFUL AND THE CANDYMAKERS SEQUEL TO COME OUT!!!
I’ve read the Last Present and The Candymakers, and they are amaaing! 🙂
Im looking forward to when those come out………
I really hope the situation changes!!!
YES!!! You’re continuing Willow Falls!! You’ve just made my day! One writer to another, (me) I am writing a book about a kidnapping, a twin, and a suspicious 7-11 part-time manager. I hope one day you will be able to read it. It is called Wishing Away. And, WHAT THE FRIK, AMAZON????????? On a happy note for me, I just checked out the candymakers from the library,and i am proud to say, that i saw the willow falls series and said aloud to no one in particular, ‘I read those books.’ Sincerely,
A soon to be author Bailey Nicole
I love all of your books! My favorite is every soul a star. I am currently reading Jeremy fink and the meaning of life. It is amazing!
you amazing I love the willow falls series and why don’t you ever put the series name on them GRACEFUL IS THE NEW BOOK NAME THANK YOU
Hi I just wanted to say that your Willow Falls series is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also, you should make a movie series out of them. i would be a great Rory, if you do make them into movies. And I can’t wait for Graceful.
Omigod!!!!! ANOTHER WILLOW FALLS BOOK???!!!! I reread The Last Present a month ago and I was sad there wasn’t going to be another one!!!! This is amazing! YAY! Those are some of my favorite books!!!
Cant wait to read it! I am also a really big fan of yours!
Aww, I hope the problems get fixed…I can’t wait for Graceful and the Candymakers 2!! keep up the amazing work! Love you lots~
EEkkkk! Graceful!?! Is it all about Grace or does it envolve the group? I’m assuming it will be from Grace’s point of view….Is that right? I am so pumped about the sequel and am dying for the movie! All good things come to those who wait, so I’m glad that you wrote it like a classic aka I will never be to old to enjoy it 🙂
So ecstatic that I’m doing cartwheels,
Would you consider using a nobody for Daisy….or do the actors in the movie need to have already had their big break?
Have you already chosen your actors?
Are you in charge of casting?
Where are they filming it?
When do you think the movie will be released?
Sadly I am not in charge of casting any movies from my books. There are specific agencies
Wendy, I LOVE the name of the new Willow Falls series! It is so creative! I just can’t wait till it comes out!!! So sorry about the whole Amazon deal. 🙁 Maybe after you are finished with the sequel of The Candymakers, you could add on to the Twice Upon a Time series too! I have just finished reading the Rapunzel version and have already read the Beauty and the Beast and the Sleeping Beauty multiple times! You should really think about producing one of the Willow Falls Books because they are just SO amazing! You should make a movie for 13 Gifts or The Last Present!
Lots of love, Daniela! xoxo ; )
YES! I love the Willow Falls Series! It is AMAZING! And awesome. But doesn’t amazing and awesome mean the same thing? I dunno. I get confused.
Omg!!! I’m so excited for GRACEFUL! I thought the Willow Falls series ended, considering The Last Present ended on such a pleasant note.
Yay!!!! I almost screamed when I saw you’re almost done! Thank you! I just finished the last present, well we readers get to get another present!!!
Man! Why would Amazon do such a thing? Anyway, I CANNOT wait to read Graceful! I’m getting super excited!
OMG I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED FOR GRACEFUL!!!!! Ok so I have tried SO MANY times to comment something, but it didn’t work. Let’s hope this time will be different!! I can’t really ask anything to happen in Graceful, because you said you almost finished it. Instead I will ask you this- is there a spot where I can get a book summary for Graceful, or at least a release date? Thank you SOOOOOOOOOO much and I’m literally SOOOOOOO excited!!! Also, I wrote something- a short story from Amanda’s pov. and I really want to show it to you! I guess I can just mail it to you… I think you’d like it! Thank you so much!
Hi and sooooo sorry for the problems with posting!! I’m sure you’ve long ago stopped checking, but if you get this I’m sending you a big hug for loving the books so much and I really hope you enjoyed Graceful when it came out. All my best wishes to you over the years!! xoxo Wendy
Hi again we are on a different time zone do you’re probably sleeping but I wanted u to know Ive always wanted to talk to an author and now I get to!! This is really cool and thanks for telling me about the book prices!!!
The next book for the willows fall’s series? I thought it was over I am soo excited I love that series!!! Why don’t
You make a movie for that series. Please?
Hi! I don’t know if you remember, but I was at your book signing in Washington DC! I have not checked your website in a while, and I am glad I did! I am so Happy that there will be an another book in the willow Falls series! I love your writing so much!
Hello! I’m Theresa, as you can tell, and I’m 14. I have no idea where to start….hahaha Well, I just finished reading “The Last Present” about 15 minutes ago and I love the series!!!! (I don’t usually use exclamation points so this is pretty special.) I went on your website to ask you if you were going to continue the Willow Falls series, but reading your post I was so thrilled!!! I find it quite ironic though, I started reading your series at age 11 and the second book when I was 12 and so on; I just love the series so much!!! You’re probably one of my favorite authors and this series is probably one of my top three favorites! Thank you for writing such great books. 🙂 I feel like I’m typing with so many run-on’s hahahaha I truly can’t wait for GRACEFUL and I see what you did there with the title LOL (Tyoical teen sayings always show up somehow hahaha) I’m also wondering if Amanda and Leo ever got their second kiss…I may have missed it. I tend to like a little romance here and there. XD (I also like to use emoticons.) I don’t read books too often anymore, but this series immediately captured me into it again. Also, thank you for being such a great author. Thank you so much for taking time to read my long comment! Have a great day!
Thankfully, I own a kindle so I don’t have to worry about delivery. I can’t wait till the Willow Falls book fomes out!!!!!!!! After I read Crash(by Jerry Spinelli, an AWESOME book), I ran out of books to read. I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
well, I don’t have to worry about that becuase iv’e stocked up most of your books in a box entitled: best books EVA! my favorite book is 11 birthdays so thats why my name is Amanda Ellerby. Im reading every soul a star and im at the part where ally and bree first meet. i am going into fifth grade this year and all the books im going to read by you are going to get me through an entire semester probablly!
you really inspire us Wendy!
P.s.my mom said that if you ever come do a book signing Texas we might be able to go to it so tell me if you do!
we love you!
Hi. I can’t wait for Graceful to come out! I’m a big fan of the willow falls series.
I own a kindle too so I don’t have to worry. I love all your books that I’ve read and I will pay extra for your wonderful books. You are the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am such a huge fan of yours and I hope to be as great of an author as you are. I really hope someday to meet you. I have read so many of your books and I am anxiously awaiting the release of The Candymakers sequel, and Graceful, I am such aan avid reader and by far you are my most favorite author of all time. You beat out John Green and honestly I love John so much. I really hope that you read this!
Your biggest fan,
Hello Wendy! I am a huge fan of you and your books, but I’m not going to start talking about that because it could take me all day! Anyways, can you please come to Washington D.C for a event please????? When is Graceful coming out? Is there going to be a movie for The Candy Makers? Please write back because I check your website every hour!
-Sena (YOUR BIGGEST FAN)
Where to begin? You have inspired so many people with your AMAZING writing!i have read all of your books probably 20 times each and I am in love with all of them still!you are my role model and I hope one day I will be able to write as well as you. Your writing is so smooth and it feels like one even is just flowing over another… They blend! That’s a good thing if that kind of sounded like it was a bad thing. I love writing too and I hope one day I can be as inspiring as you!
P.S. Is there any way I can email you every once and a while? Thwt would be awesome!thx
JUST FINISHED A MANGO SHAPED SPACE GOE THE 6TH TIME AND I AM FREAKING OUT! THATS HOW GOOD IT IS! I LOVE THIS BOOK<3
thanks so much for telling me that amazon delayed your books and I’m super excited that your making another book for the willow falls series it is my favorite series and I loved the book candymakers and think it is awesome that you are making a sequel to it
Sorry for the super late commenting…
U r the best author EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can’t wait for Graceful to be out! My parents want for me to wait for the paperback copy to come out, but I’m like, “NO WAY! It’s not even out yet and when it does, I’ll have to wait even LONGER!” You’re books are totally the best I’ve ever read in my WHOLE life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do you know when Graceful is going to be out??????? I feel like I’m gonna burst!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You’re books have changed me, inside and out. Literally!! Sometimes when I watch TV I see the actor saying that what happened was just a coincidence. My first instinct now is to shout out, “NO!” Then to turn around to see if anyone has seen what I just yelled out.
Another thing I have been meaning to tell you is that I have a copy of The Last Present and I realized that there is a typo in my copy on page 153. In the second half of the page, its says ‘Amanda and I’ when Amanda is the one telling the story. I don’t know if the newer copies of The Last Present have this fixed, but I just wanted to point that out to you…
PLEASE reply!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You’re books are amazing ( though a part of me feels like I already have mentioned that due to the excitement )
There are no coincidences!
#1 Fan in the whole universe and on any exo-planets,
Love that you are #1 on exoplanets!
Getting excited again! I can’t wait for Graceful to be released. Well done on your super fast writing, I swear you only told us you were starting another Willow Falls a couple of months ago 🙂
Have a good (rest of the) summer (it’s winter here, I wish I lived in the Northern Hemisphere at times like these!),
Let me just say that you are BY FAR my most favorite author of all times!! I have read all of the Willow Falls books multiple times and I just can’t seem to get enough of them!:) I have also read all of the Twice Upon a Time series and just fell in love with those too!! I’m super stocked that you are writing another book in the Willow Falls series! I thought you weren’t going to write another one and I was telling myself “No she has to write another one about grace! She can’t just leave me hanging!” But I now know that you have not left me hanging! I can’t wait for it to come out!!!!!! Thanks for being the best author out there! I hope that you will keep writing more stories for me to enjoy!!
I enjoy reading all of your books. You are very clever in weaving something that I never knew about into your story lines (Jeremy Fink, Mango). I find myself researching about the slap on the face for a young woman who first began her period and the colors that can be associated with words and people.
I am nearing the end of Jeremy Fink and will go on to 13 Presents.
You are a talented writer!

OMG CAN YOU PLZ MAKE ANOTHER BOOK IN THE 11 BIRTHDAY SERIES!!!!! I LOVE THE LAST PRESENT! EXCEPT YOU LEFT IT AT A HORRIBLE ENDING! PLZ TELL ME YOUR MAKING ANOTHER ONE! IF U ARE DO U THINK IT CAN BE FROM LEOS SIDE LIKE HOW LAST PRESENT WAS AMANDA’S THIS ONE COULD BE LEO?! BTW I LOVED THE KISSING SCENE AT THE BEACH! IT WAS REALLY GOOD I READ IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN!
Me too!!! I loved the kissing scene, I read it over and over again until I had to take it back to the library. I hope she’s making another one!!! I want it to be on Leo’s point of view, too.
OMG I JUST FOUND OUT UR WRITING ANOTHER BOOK IN THE WILLOW FALLS SERIES! which i’m also not happy about 🙁 because i want it to be from Leos point of view, i’m guessing its from graces? 🙁
i really love it when it involves Amanda and Leo BTW! like my perfect kiss would be how it was when Amanda and Leo kissed!!!! so romantic and cute! 😛
1. Amazon is making a big mistake by not sending out your books. They are ruining people from reading more of your wonderful literature and they are losing money for themselves.
2. I can’t not WAIT until Graceful and the sequel to the Candymakers comes out. Candymakers is one of my favorite books by you (even though I love all of them) and Willow Falls is my favorite book series in the whole world.
3. I have made a pact that I am going to re-read all of your books that I have (which is all of them but 13 Gifts) this summer. Starting with A Mango-Shaped Space, that was your first book right?
This is so awesome when these books come out my brother’s gonna get’em for me i was totally scared i would run out of my summer reading stockpile.
Words can barely describe how excited I am that another willow falls book is coming out! And the Candymakers! So exciting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀
Thank you so much!
My daughter and I stumbled upon your twice upon a time series and we fell in love! We are currently looking to buy everything you’ve ever written! Thanks for the heads up about amazon we will check with our local bookstore instead 🙂
Yay!!!!!! I cant wait for the next book in the Willow Falls series.Also the sequel to the Candymakers.I love both books(series?). You are such a great writer!
Dear Wendy, just an idea for another book to write. I think you should rewrite 11 birthdays from Leo’s point of view. Oh, and I am SUPER happy that you are writing another Willowfalls book.
I think that’s a good idea ( the Leo’s perspective on 11 birthdays)
Hello! I have been reading one of your best books- The Candymakers! I heard you were making The Candymakers Sequel after you do Willow Falls series. I have always wanted to speak to a famous author like you, and now I am!! I can’t wait to read The Candymakers Sequel!!!!!!!
I was close to tears (seriously!) when I heard that The Last Present was going to be the last book in the Willow Falls series. But then, GRACEFUL HAPPENED. I literally was screaming SO loud, my mom asked if I was okay.
I MUST KNOW WHEN GRACEFUL IS COMING OUT. But seriously, if it’s not in the school months, I’l have to beg my mom to order it. My mom’s a little strict.
I can’t wait! I’m a little then when I read 11 Birthdays, but I will always and forever be a fan!
Hello! That is so awesome there will be a Willow Falls #5, I thought there wouldn’t be because of the 4th books name (The LAST present). I so happy, this is one of my favorite book series EVER! plus, my bff is REALLY getting into your books (Ever soul a star, The candy makers, and THE WILLOW FALLS)! 😀
You are my favorite author. My favorite book is one that you have written!!!!!! It is A Mango Shaped space. Will you write a sequel to this book? I would really love it. My second favorite is Every Soul A Star. Last but not least, my third favorite is 11 birthdays. You have really inspired me.
OMG I always have that problem! I can’t wait for Graceful to come out! Also, are there any news about The Camdymakers movie? Are you done with the script? And do you know about casting and auditions? When will they be, and are they open to the public? Sorry, I’m asking a lot of questions. I love your writing soooo much, thank you for writing and I hope you keep writing forever!

Another book?!?!?!?!? Gahhh I can’t wait!!!!! I have loved the Willow Falls series!!!!:)
Hi Wendy Mass! I really love your books and I’m sorry to hear about the disagreement with Amazon. Luckily, I buy your books mostly from B&N, so I won’t have to worry. I really love the Willow Falls series, Rory being my favourite character, and I am really excited for Graceful! I’m guessing this is from Grace’s point of view? I also really love the Candymakers (my classmates do, too) and can’t wait for the sequel! I just finished Jeremy Fink and I have to say it is one of your best books. It just has so much meaning and really changes the way I look at life. I am now moving on to Mango Shaped Space, and I’m expecting something almost as good as Jeremy Fink!
I created a blog just now on Blogger, and i featured A Mango-Shaped Space as my favorite book! The Blog is called Awesome Books for Awesome Readers, and I want to note that many of your books will find their way onto it. You are my favorite author! Also, I agree about Amazon, and I sympathize.
Hi can I ask you a question?
Is the last present really the last book in the series???
WOW. I cant believe it took me this long to visit your website!!! I’m kickin myself ‘cuase omg I LUV LUV LUV your books! I’m 15 and sometimes have a hard time quenching my thirst to read (haha), but in times of doubt I always turn back to you. If I didn’t have so many sleeping sibs rn I woulda screamed when I saw your coming out with sequels to “The Last Present” and “The Candymakers” lol. (both of which I LUV’D) I can’t WAIT till they come out!!! I hope you Know how awesome you are 🙂 You’re BY FAR my FAVE author! Keep up the good work!
You’re so sweet!! Thanks so much, glad you didn’t wake any sleeping sibs. ;o)
Hey, I’m 15 too! I feel like I’m a bit too old for Wendy’s books sometimes…but then I stop caring because I love them!
Yay!!! I love the WIllow Falls series!! So so sososososososososo excited for the next one to come out! Not to mention the Candymakers sequel! Speaking of the Candymakers, is the movie still going to be a thing? I hope so! I miss reading all of your books, you don’t know how many times I’ve reread all of them!!!
I’m very excited for your sequels (especially Graceful, eek!) Thanks for writing so many great books, they always cheer me up 🙂
YES, YES, YES! ANOTHER WILLOW FALLS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I CAN’T CONTAIN MY EXCITMENT I”M JUST SO HAAAAAAAAPPPPPPPPPPYYYYYYY!
Sorry about that. Willow Falls is just such and amazing series how can someone stay sane?
Question: Is there going to be a Willow Falls movie? If so, I would overflow with joy and probably explode with happiness.
Lol, alas, no willow falls movie in the works…but fingers crossed that someday someone will want to make one! :O)
Honestly, I bet if there would be a movie not a lot of people would enjoy. Because the movie would probably not be like how a lot of your readers imagined the book. For example, I imagine Amanda with Short brown hair and bangs (I don’t know why) and green eyes. If there is a movie she will probably be blond with blue eyes.
When are there going to be more blogs? I need to know more about GRACEFUL(yay!!)! Also, in my school, we have to find a paragraph in a book(I picked Every Soul a Star) and your paragraph was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo smooth!!!!! My teacher taught me to use action-verbs instead of is, was, were, are. How do u do that?
P.S. YOU ARE MY ALL TIME FAVORITE AUTHOR!!!!!
Good luck with the book, Scarllet
BTW, why does the Every Soul a Star Crossword Puzzle not work?
hmm, thanks for letting me know. I’ll see if i can rescue it from internet no man’s land.
That’s funny about the action verbs instead of “is”. I didn’t learn that writing tip for a long time, and while I still do use the “to be” verbs like is/was, I do try to use something stronger if I can find one! I’m glad to hear it’s working!!
Omg u r the best author ever I love your twice apon a time keep going! Keeping it short but sweet Riley
Hello! I love your books so much! Mostly THE WILLOW FALLS SERIES! 😀 I’m soooooo happy that there will be a 5th one!!! 😀 🙂 <3 🙂 It is my favorite series….. EVER! Do you plan to have a 6th? 😀 ~Leah
OMG CANT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi Wendy! Just want to say that I love your books soo much, and I’m so happy that you are making sequels to my favorite books! Can’t wait to read them!
I was reading the comments and I would LOVE a movie it would AWESOME if someone would make a movie out of your books!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think it would make a LOT OF MONEY to!
I Wish someone Would ask you if they could make a movie out of your books! Or they would read the comments and ask you!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you soo much for writing Graceful. I love all your books but I like the Willow Fall series the best! I hope there’s a lot about Rory & Jake and Leo & Amanda! keep writing. I love your books!
Omg I am super happy for GRACEFUL to come out! You are by far my favorite author and I am beyond excited for it to come out! I love Amanda and Leo together and I hope there will be more on that! I just don’t know how I can wait until it will come out!
Me too!!! Such a great book!!! I wonder when Graceful will come out, I hope it’s soon. I can’t wait!!!
idk how i feel about the whole Graceful book being about Grace. i got pulled into the Last Present because of Amanda and Leo twisting it up and dating. which is a good thing. but i kinda wanted the next book to be about Leo… i mean its cool that its about Grace but… it kinda just was a let down for me. not trying to sound jealous… i don’t know, it will prob be good once i read it, but until then im kinda bummed. please make the next book from Leo’s point of view or Amanda’s!!!
I have to agree with that
You are my favorite author ever. I want to write novels when I grow up, but get writers block a lot. Do you have any advice for me? I love writing and reading so much- I hope one day to put my work out into the world for others to read and enjoy.
Thanks for always inspiring me!
Hi!!!!!!! I LOVE your books so much!!!!!! The Candymakers is my favorite book of all time!!! I love how you write from the different characters point of view! It makes the story so much more interesting!! The Willow Falls series are also my favorite series!!! I am SOO glad you are going to continue on that series!!! I will def. be buying Graceful!! You are my favorite author!!!! You inspired me to try writing my own story!! PS. Whenever my friends see me reading The Candymakers, and I recommend it to them, they say “That’s to thick for me to read.” But in my opinion, the thicker the better!!!!
You are my favorite author BY FAR!!!! You’ve inspired me so much I want to be a writer when I grow up just like you!!! I think you should make a mango shaped space 2 but call it a mustard shape space when mia gets the cat I loved the first book soooo much I have synesthesia like Mia and I relate to her so much I love all of your books I’m so excited for graceful I have nothing to read now because I’ve finished all of your books!!! I also agree that you should make a movie that would be really cool
OMG I have synesthesia too!!! I have never met another synesthete other than my chorus teacher lol!!! I wish there was actually a website online where you can interact with other synesthetes cause that would be awesome!!! Anyway wendy I love all of your books and can’t wait until graceful and the candymakers 2 come out!! SOOOOOO excited!!!! I wrote a book (not a real one I’m only 12) incorporating myself into a mango shape space and it was so fun to write!!!! I write during my free time, which tends to be at 1 in the morning….yeesh. Thanks so much for writing all of these amazing books you are very talented!!!!! I’m sure these new books will be just as outstanding as the last ones
Hey there synesthete!! There really are places you can go to talk with others…try a great site called Mixed Signals at http://www.mixsig.net/ They have a wonderful community there and a lot of helpful information. I love that you wrote yourself into the book, that’s Awesome!!! Big hug to you, and your chorus teacher. :o)
Keep writing (but maybe not at one in the morning. ;o)
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so exited the willow falls series is my favorite series in the whole entire world
Hey Wendy! I am doing a poster about my favorite author for Literature class, so naturally I chose you!!! What inspired you to become a writer? Also, did you have any other jobs before becoming an author? I want to be an author too, someday and I’ve already started a book!
Your Biggest Fan,
I can’t wait to read Graceful
I can`t wait for Graceful! Wendy, you are like my FAVORITE author besides Lauren Tarshis and Ellen Miles!!!!!! I LOVE the Willow Falls series! I read all the Willow Falls books! Your stories are so adventurous and mysterious! I`m writing a book right now too. It`s called Mr. Loser, and I`m writing another book with my friends and it`s called The Mystery Girls. I wonder what will happen in Graceful! What if they go through a portal to a secret land or something? Man, I wish I could time travel like Amanda and Leo. I`m sure Graceful will win a Caldecott Medal. All your books are great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😉
I cant wait I am sosososososososo exited another willow falls book are you making a movie with the willow falls seiries it is my favourite series in the whole entire world I just put a hold at the library leap day, Jeremy fink and the meaning of life and candy makers I am so exited!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dear Wendy I am really excited for graceful to come out I already preordered it. I have always wanted to be an author. I write little stories sometimes. I can’t wait till candymakers2 come out also! I have read all of the willow falls books the candymakerd and I am finishing up pi in the sky
I can’t wait for Graceful to come out, I love the Willow Falls series!!! Wendy, you’re an amazing author, keep up the great work. 😀
Awww! Thank you!
I LOVE Graceful. It is SUCH A GOOD BOOK. I love It but does it really have 2 be the last 1? You know how you get a glimpse of their futures? I liked that part but I want 2 Know HOW they got to their futures. You know how in Wonder by RJ palacio has a different book called the Julian Chapter because she didn’t put it in the book? I was thinking maybe you could do a book for each person like “Amanda’s Book” and then you could see all of their lives from all their different perspectives. Please let me know what you think of the idea I know you probably need to write other books so tell me if this is the worst idea ever but I’m the type of person who likes to know about the character’s lives after the story ends. I don’t think I can let go of the Willow falls series yet. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ANSWER I really want to know what you think
PS. I love all your books
PPS. I really hope this loads
PPPS. What does PS even stand for
Hi Danielle! I love your enthusiasm!! I do think the peeks into their future would show how they got from what you saw, to where they wind up, wouldn’t be possible to tell every detail of their journey or else they’d be reallllly long books! You should be able to fill in the blanks though after reading the last chapter…I hope that helps! (and p.s. stands for post script, like it’s an afterthought from what you already wrote. ;o)
I absolutely love your books especially leap day and the willow falls series I Can’t wait to read graceful so exicted I want to thank you because 12 finally was the Bol that got me hooked on reading and I have been crazy for reading ever since
YAY!!! Keep writing! Read Graceful and SO GOOD! Candymaker 2! YAY! I was wondering if you could add one more book to the Willow Falls series. So good! Thanks!
Thank you and Candymakers 2 will be out Aug 2cd!
Hiiiiii Wendy!!! Omg! U know i have just read 2 books of yours wendy, ie mango shaped space and 13 gifts and u know what? They were completely awesome… and now i am really really really looking forward to issuing some more of your books from my library.. i used to like books by meg cabot at first but now? Ur books have reallybecome my favourite.. i read them even at late night or in the early morning….. oh my godd u write such good books..
I am a BIG fan of Meg Cabot so I am honored that you enjoy both of our books! I hope you had fun reading the titles you found at the library. The library is one of my favorite places.
I can not wait to read GRACEFUL I love your books. I was so inspired by Jeremy Fink that was one crazy adventure. Can’t wait for more books
i got Graceful two days ago and cant art reading it. i started reading the series when i was in fourth grade and could not stop reading. i read every night and every morning my dad had to hid the book from me so i would eat dinner. i LOVE your books and hope you never stop writing them
love and hugs
I love that your dad had to hide your book! He sounds like a fun dad. I think I will be writing for a long time…maybe even until you have kids one day.
When will the new Candymaker book be out?
August 2cd and I can’t wait!
I love the Willow Falls series and I wish they didn’t have to end. I feel so connected to the characters that I can’t seem to let go. I know all of the books by heart, but I still read them a lot.do you have something that could show me what you think the characters look like? that would be awesome.
That is a cool idea but as this point I don’t have that. I am glad you will always remember the characters as they are pretty special.
Hi Wendy! You are one of my favorite authors of ALL TIME!! And believe me I read a lot of books. Reading is one of my favorite things to do and whenever i’m bored, I just pick up one of your books. You inspired me to start writing. One of the things I love most about your books is how in some of them, you write from the perspectives of different characters. I love that. I am so excited for Candymakers 2!! I reread Candymakers for the 4th time the other day and it was just as good as the first time. Please reply if possible!
P.S. I love acting so if any of your books ever become movies……..(hint, hint) haha.
Hi Sarah–I wish all of my books would become movies. I am so happy you are as excited as I am for new Candymakers book. August 2cd will be here before we know it!
I LOVE the Willow Falls series SOO much and really want to get my hands on Graceful (my local library doesn’t have it). I write in my spare time and have just finished writing a story about a boy trying to figure out the difference between illusion and reality whilst going through the problems of kidnaping, rescuing, friendship and bravery. Hope you get to read it!
I am a huge fan of your Wilow Falls books and love the fact that everything turns out OK in the end even though times are tough and that each book has a sort of meaning to it (especially Finally). Where did you get the inspiration to write such amazing books?
Here are some other things that I like about the series:
How everyone is optimistic
The ending of all the books
The way it seems so real (not a lot of fantasy)
IT HAS MAGIC ( I LOVE magic #HarryPotter)
Everyone is so multicultural (Aussie Ray and Jewish David)
Well I can’t write everything or this list will be SOOO long!
I especially like how David is Jewish and everyone accepts him as he is! Maybe you can add in a Muslim next or something (Muslims are kind, pure hearted people , I know because I have a few Muslim friends)
Tara (Like Tara Brennan LOL!!! )
Hi to the Real Tara!! Thanks for much for your thoughtful and insightful comments about the series! I’m sure by now you’ve gotten your hands on a copy of Graceful and I hope you enjoyed how it wrapped things up (at least mostly!!). Thank you again for sharing your enthusiasm and letting me know what you liked, it’s really helpful!! Sending hugs!! xo, Wendy
You are my fave author OF ALL TIME!!!! Your books are the one thing I can’t live without. I really hope you make the Willow Falls series a movie. If that happened I would scream and dance. When I finished reading Graceful I cried a bit because it was the last book in that series. I loved Pi in the Sky because of how unusual it is (I mean that in a nice way) who woulda thunk to make a book about pie and space? I love how everything is connected in the Willow Falls series.
You should read The Genius Files by Dan Gutman!
AW, thank you so much Chloe!! Grateful for you and your love of Pi in the Sky, b/c I never get to hear about that book lol. And I loved the Genius Files!! Trying to figure out what project is coming next, let me know what you think. xo –Wendy
