Dear Mr. Lerangis,
Let me begin by saying I am a fan of your books. Currently, I am an author myself, and your work has been a big inspiration to me. I’m self-publishing a movie titled “KI Eternal”, and I expect to have it finished by 2022. I would love for you to read the script, since it’s partially inspired by the “Seven Wonders” series.
Thank you for your time. I look forward to your response.

Hello, Viola! First, my embarrassed apologies for taking one year (!!!) to answer your lovely message. I have really neglected this guestbook during the pandemic, and I am reaching back and trying to catch up. I hope you continued KI Eternal, and if you did, I can't wait to see it! Thanks so much.

Hi Peter,
I am a young author and I am trying to write my first book. Are there any recommendations for publishers that will accept young authors? How did you make your book very popular? Also, I love your books especially Seven Wonders!

Hi, Adam! I’m guilty of seriously neglecting this guestbook during the pandemic, and also a bit aghast that I left you hanging more than a year ago (!!!). So very sorry. As to your question: well, you didn’t mention how old you were, but I’m guessing you’re still in school. My best advice would be pretty simple: keep writing. Keep developing your skills. Keep letting whatever sparks you find its way from your brain to the page (or screen!). For now, develop your craft rather than think about being published. It’s so very competitive and you’ve got to be as good as the very best writers even to get your foot in the door. Plus, you’ll need to be represented by an agent, and it takes a lot of time to develop those connections.  The more you’ve written, the greater chance you’ll draw interest to yourself as a writer.  You may want to think about entering a writing contest, like the Scholastic Writing Awards.  If you’re college age or older, yes, you should start seeking out agents. One way to meet them is by joining SCBWI and going to some of their conventions, where you can meet tons of publishing people, attend seminars, and join a critique group.  Keep at it.  Write great stories, and when you’re done, write better ones.  Then better ones.  The best people always rise to the top.  Always.  I hope you do too.  But it’s all about the work.  I hope I see your name in print someday. That’s pretty general, I know, but I hope it helps!

Hi Peter,
I'm a big fan of the thre investigators and crimebusters. I hear there are two extra novels published in German. How can I get the English version of brain wash and high strung?
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi Chris! Checking through my messages today, I found yours and it looks like I somehow missed it! So sorry. As it turns out, those two books were never published in English. They were orphaned, so to speak, when Random House discontinued the series early back in 1990 or so. Franck Kosmos in Germany obtained the rights around 2008, but not for the English language. So those rights are available for American publishers, but none have taken interest.

Peter, I love your books!

So far I've only read Watchers Rewind and Last Stop but I have a plan to buy more. I read them to my junior high students and they love them! 🙂 Thank you for sharing your talents with the world. Much love and blessings on yer head!

Hi, Jill! What a lovely message, thank you so much. I am so sorry to have taken so long to respond, but life has been complicated these last few months! It’s so great to know that the Watchers series is still being read and loved, and if you have any questions about any of my books, I’m happy to answer them. I hope you, your family, and your students are safe and healthy.

Hi, Benjamin! So sorry it took so long for me to answer. Life, as you know, has been pretty crazy. I hope you an your family are safe and healthy. And YES! By all means, if you would make a movie about the Seven Wonders when you are older, I will be the first on line to see it! Thank you for your kind words, and I’m so glad you enjoyed the series.

I know you went to school with the founder of Microsoft billgate, did you work on any projects with him or hang out with him
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Sadly, no. There were 1600 kids in my college class, so it was easy NOT to know someone. Maybe if I had, my life would have been different. I might have become a tech geek. And then I never would have become an author and visited Freeport Memorial Library!

I know you went to Law school bu i wonder....... what made you want to write books
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi Arielle. Actually I didn’t go to law school. I was about to go, but I decided to put it off for a year and try to do the things I really dreamed of doing, like acting on stage and writing. I ended up doing those things, and I enjoyed it so much I canceled my plans for law school!

I always wanted to write books, even when I was a kid. I just loved telling stories and watching people react. And I loved reading stories. A really good story could be such a great escape for me. I would get so involved reading books, hours would go by in the snap of a finger. When I read books by great authors, it made me want to be a professional writer.

Hi, Zoie! I didn’t start writing books until I was about 31. And no, none of my other family members is an author, just me.

One of them will be the third book of the Throwback series. I haven’t figured out what the other one will be yet!

I know that you like chocolate what is your favorite chocolate?
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi again, Vianderson! I love ALL chocolate!!! But I guess dark chocolate with caramels are best. English toffee too (have you tasted them? They’re amazing!). My favorites, if I have to grab a quick one at the store, are Skor bars and Snickers!
