Dear Peter Lerangis,

Hello! My name is Anika and I am a student who had to choose a book and write a review of it. Safe to say that Seven Wonders: The Colossus Rises is going to get a good review! I found myself loving every word out of this book. The way it is written is very much my style. I stumbled across this page when looking at other reviews. I would just like to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed this book and appreciate you writing it. I am going to search for the next book as soon as I can. Thank you for writing this book, I'll be sure to continue reading the series.

Thanks so much,
Anika Gale

Hi, Anika! Well, this really makes my day. I’m thrilled you’re writing a positive review and even more thrilled that you enjoyed reading the story! I hope the rest of the series lives up to your high expectations. Enjoy!

Dear Mr. Lerangis,
I love your Spy X books. We are reading them in our 3rd grade class. Do you plan to write Spy X 5 at some point?

Sincerely,
Finn H.

Hi, Finn! Oh, I wish. I really, really, wish there could be a Book 5. Actually, the publisher had asked me to write a book 5 and book 6, and then they unexpectedly decided not to publish them. I never quite understood why, but there you have it. You now know as much about it as I do! I wish that hadn’t happened, but I am so glad you enjoyed the series!

Hi, Olivia! Wow, that’s really delightful to know. I have to say, you all were extremely perceptive and creative. It was really fun for me to bat those ideas around with you! Thanks for writing.

Hello, my name is Angelo I am in sixth grade and I was one of the kids in the auditorium at upper dauphin middle school. I wanted to let you know how inspiring, and very interested your "speech" was. Thank you from being there and saying everything that day. The story about the train and that story got me very emotionally. Thank you for coming to the school, sorry if I took some of your time, but thanks.

Hi, Angelo! So sorry it took a while to get back to you. Your message means a great deal to me. I'm very happy I was able to inspire you. Please give my best regards to everyone at Upper Dauphin. That was a great visit, and thanks to all of you for welcoming me so warmly!

Have you ever considered doing a book with R.L. Stine? If you did not, you should really consider it because I believe that if you two make a book, it will be pretty interesting. Thank you
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Jacob! Thanks for the advice. I’ll have to mention this to him! We did do a book together (sort of). I wrote a short story in a collection of stories he published. The book is called Scream and Scream Again, and you can read more about it here.

Well this is a bit general, and you've most likely been asked this hundreds of times. But what gave you the ideas for the Seven Wonders series? Even though it's a series meant for people generally a bit younger than me, the content is captivating. I'm 16 and looking to write an action-fantasy novel and I was curious in hearing how you were inspired.
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Cam! Thanks for asking, and apologies for not getting back to you until now. The idea for the series came from three places. I became obsessed with the Seven Wonders years ago during a trip to Greece. I looked across the harbor in Rhodes and imagined the massive Colossus straddling the harbor. It seemed utterly impossible for such a thing to have existed. I was hooked. I began digging into the Wonders just as a hobby, hoping to write about them. But I couldn’t really think of a story that could span all the different locations and times in which they were built. Later in that trip, I visited the island of Crete and learned that people there believed Crete was the site of Atlantis. Well, I’d always wanted to write about Atlantis too — but I figured that topic has been done by so many people, it was fruitless to even try. Third, I’ve been wanting to write a series of “desert island” adventures, where kids are trapped by mysterious forces, but that sort of book has also been done to death — and besides, I couldn’t figure out why those kids would be trapped there anyway! So I parked all three ideas in the back of my mind. And they began to mingle. So even though I couldn’t make each come to life on its own, TOGETHER they grew into an idea I loved! And the rest is history.

Hi there,
Mr. Lerangis i was in in school suspension and stumbled across two of your books from the watchers series. I'm currently baffled as to what happened at the end of the first two.
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Demetrius! Well, I’m the one who deserves a suspension for taking so long to write you back! OK, I don’t want to give away spoilers, for people who may be reading this and have not yet read the books, so I will send you a separate message to the gmail address you provided. [Added later: whoops, looks like that address didn’t work!]

Hi Peter! I'm in 4th grade and I just finished your first book in the series Watchers. I loved it a lot. I didn't read the second book yet. My teacher gave me and my class a writing assignment to write what we thought would happen next after the cliffhanger at the end of the first book. I would love to show you what I thought would happen next. I typed it on a document. How can I share it with you? Please let me know!
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Abigail! Whoops, looks like waaaaay too much time went by between your message and my reply. By now, maybe you’ve read the next book or lost track of your prediction. But if you still have it and want to send it to me, feel free to send to info@peterlerangis.com. Thanks for writing, and I’m honored that you enjoyed Colossus Rises!
Annemarie wrote on January 9, 2019 at 4:26 PM
I just found your Seven Wonders series and I loved it! I'm hoping this message will inspire you to write either another book or an epilogue novella, because so much was left to wonder about the Rift's ending. Aly, Cass, Marco, and Jack obviously remember, but does anyone else, like Torquin? What happened to the queen? Is Cass living with his parents? His sister? Have the Atlantean legends survived? Please write more! if only to tie up all the loose ends Rift left dangling.

Hi, Annemarie! So sorry to have taken this long to respond (wow, am I behind!). I’m so glad to know how much you enjoyed the Seven Wonders series. Sad to say, I’ve moved on to other projects, but I do miss those characters, and if there’s a groundswell of support for the books, who knows? Maybe I’ll extend the story then....

Hello Peter, I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your seven wonders series and was wondering if you have plans to write another book. The last book felt like there was more to the ending then what was there
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Erika! No, sorry to say that the Seven Wonders series has ended, and I’ve moved on to other projects. But who knows, if there’s enough demand, I may think of returning. I do really miss those characters!

Dear Peter

I absolutely adored your Seven Wonders series, and I am completely hooked on the first Max Tilt story ... but ... now the second Max Tilt has been out for a while, and yet not sign of an audiobook ... there will be an audiobook of it, will there not?? Pleeeeease!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

All the best,
Inge

Hi, Inge! Wow, someone just wrote about this same thing! So I’ll give you the same answer: HarperCollins did not contract for an audiobook for Max Tilt #2. Unfortunately I don’t have control over business decisions like that 🙁 , but I am hoping they’ll change their minds, because I loved the Book 1 version. Certainly it will mean something to them when they see these messages, so thanks!

Dear Peter Lerangis,

Your book, The Vipers Nest, had an impact on me because all of the action made me want to read more! For example, when there was the big storm, I kept reading to see what would happen next. Also, when Amy and Dan were running from the Indonesian police, I was thinking they were going to go to prison for the rest of their lives. That part of the book was super scary! Another scary part of the book was when Dan was trying to save Saladin. They were both in the water, but when they got to shore I was relieved. Finally, I was confused when Dan and Amy saw the weird passport. I didn’t understand what it was at first, but then I figured out that it was the murderer’s passport. Right as I started this book, I new I was going to love it because I love action packed books, and the action kept on going. This was an amazing book to read and the best part was that it made me want to read more. I look forward to reading more of your books.

Sincerely,
Jack Dittenber

Jack! What an awesome note. Thanks so much for letting me know how much The Viper’s Nest meant to you. Happy reading and best wishes for the holidays!

My 9 year old son just discovered your Max Tilt series. He loved the first book, and is excited about reading book 2.
When do you think the audio book will be coming out?
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hello, April. Thank you so much for the kind words, and a high-five to your son from me! HarperCollins did not contract for an audiobook for Max Tilt #2. Unfortunately I don’t have control over business decisions like that 🙁 , but I am hoping they’ll change their minds, because I loved the Book 1 version.
Gabriella Lewis wrote on November 30, 2018 at 7:54 AM
I was wondering if you would like a manga adaptation to your Sven Wonders series. The reason I am asking is because it is a great series, and I think it would be a good idea for it to be visualised. Of course,if you don't want it to be visualised, I understand. The reason I am asking if you want it visualised is because some people may like the series, but like it visualised for the reader who may not have the time to read the whole series. Another reason I am offering/ asking to do this is because of the growing amount of comic readers, and I think it might be good to expand on people knowing your great series.


If you wish for me to show you art or how I draw things or even if you want me to draw something from the series, I'd be happy to do so.

Thank you very much,

Hi, Gabriella! That’s a great idea. I would love a manga adaptation. I will have to pass that idea by my editor!

Do you plan on making a new series after Max Tilt?
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Matias! Yes, I’m working on a new trilogy now. Can’t say much about it yet, but it involves time travel, and the series title will be Throwback. I think Book 1 is going to be published in September 2019. Thanks for asking and have an awesome school year!
