We continue with our discussion of holiday giftgiving, by your friends at The Spectacle.
Who would be the perfect recipient for a book or series of yours?
An outdoorsy tween or young teen who will feel cooped up in winter’s rough weather and would like to at least read about the magic of wandering through nature would probably like my Farwalker books.—Joni Sensel, author of THE FARWALKER’S QUEST and other middle-grade and YA fantasies.
My Haunted series should appeal to young readers who want action and adventure—maybe even those reluctant reader boys who’d rather get a videogame. Halloween may be the big time for ghosts, but a good spooky scare is fun all year round. Or if someone has read The Ghost on the Stairs, I hope they’ll want the next two books in the series, The Riverboat Phantom and The Knight in the Shadows.—Chris Eboch, author of the middle grade Haunted series about kids who travel with a ghost hunter TV show
Most of my fan mail for THE SEER 6-book series is coming from girls between age 12-15 who love the fast-paced, romance and mystery. My DEAD GIRL WALKING trilogy gets a slightly older audience as this crosses over nicely for adults with the fantasy of finding out what it’s like to live in someone else’s body.—Linda Joy Singleton, who writes about magical things I wish existed as well as futuristic worlds I hope never exist.
This year, THE PENGUINS OF DOOM would make a great stocking stuffer for anyone with ginormous stockings intended for flat rectangular feet. It’s a humor story and you’d sure need a sense of humor if your feet were the size and shape of hardcover books! Also there are funny pictures to look at and penguins, penguins, penguins!—Greg R. Fishbone, author the Galaxy Games series that should have you covered for the 2011, 2012, and 2013 holiday seasons.
