millyandprudyandfriends asked:

Why was there deliberation for the An Ember in the Ashes sequel? (I'm late to the game, so I'm hearing about it second hand, sorry if I have it wrong.) Did you originally plan on writing a sequel? If not, why?

I always saw quite a long story arc in my head, but Penguin initially only bought one book, so I had to make it work as a standalone. They wanted to see what reader response would be to the book and when readers really enjoyed it and started asking for a sequel, they asked for a second. 

I think readers often feel like they have no power, but in this case they really did. It was reader requests and tweets and emails and letters that made this sequel happy. THANKS GUYS!!!!!
