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!

Mr Lerangis,

It has been a long time since I read the 39 clues, seemingly in my infancy. Collecting card codes and serum ingredients were some of my best memories when I was young. I wanted to thank you for such wonderful work. It gave me the travel bug and a desire to learn more about the world. As I start my journey to Social Studies teacher certification, I have to thank your series for putting me on this path - I do not think it would have turned out this way if not for The 39 Clues. Thank you so much for making my childhood - and adulthood so far - what it is!

Remember your double-dealing diamond tour? These videos also contributed to my desire to travel.

Lucian, Tomas, Janus, Ekaterina, Madrigal - we are all Cahills.

Hi, Debbie! Oh, this is such wonderful message, particularly on the same week the 39 Clues team had a 10-year reunion. How did you sense this?? 🙂 We all remember our own childhood influences, and it’s incredibly moving to know that in our own way, we were able to pass that forward. It means a great deal to know that the series inspired you, and thank you so much for sharing that. Best of luck to you from me and the entire world of EKTOMALUJA! I know you too will inspire students with your own passions and skills, and warmest wishes to you in your teaching career!

Hello, Peter Lerangis,

How are you?

My name is Olga, and I am a regulation associate full-time and an English tutor part-time. In my free time I write books.

One of my pupils is 14 years old and she loves your Seven Wonders series. We are about to finish reading The Legend of the Rift. I know almost nothing about the series, because we only started reading the books during the lessons only from the Legend of the Rift. From what we have read so far, I like the series and I like the way you write.

I have been writing for 14 years now, and I am about to publish my first book - a children's book about John Lennon. I like writing adult crime mysteries, adventure novels, children's books, short stories, and poetry and lyrics for a local heavy metal band.

I wanted to ask: what gives you the motivation to finish the editing process? This is the part I struggle with.

Usually I finish a first draft of a crime novel in 4-6 months due to my full-time job and my pupils and personal life. Then comes the hard part. I start editing and polishing the novel and I have a hard time maintaining the motivation to finish the editing part. I have started editing the crime novel that I want to publish, but I'm struggling to keep the motivation going.

What do you do to keep your motivation going during the second draft/final draft/editing part?


Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hello, Olga! First of all, my apologies for taking so long to respond. I’m dreadfully behind with this guestbook. I began my publishing career as an editor, so I have a very specific idea of what’s meant by editing. As I writer, I don’t really think of my own work as editing at all. I think of it as writing. I’m never happy with anything I write, so I keep rewriting until I feel it’s ready to show my editor. When I’ve gone over things many, many times, when I think it’s solid and ready to go, that’s what I consider my first draft. Even though I think it’s in perfectly good shape by then, I know my editor will see dozens or hundreds of things that need improvement. That second pair of eyes is crucial. Once I get that first draft back, then I go back and do a second draft. In other words, I let someone else edit, and I rewrite. Occasionally, when my editor will need, say, exactly 37 pages cut, then I will edit the way an editor does.So I think you’re asking about what keeps my motivation going when I have to go back over my work and change things. I’m motivated by the idea that the work isn't yet the best it can be. I’m always vexed when I read something of my own that isn’t yet as clear, funny, dramatic, or emotional as it can be, and getting it right becomes consuming. I want the reader to see the best version, not the one at hand. I do think it helps, though, to have someone else telling you the things that you can’t necessarily see with your own eyes.

Zariah wrote on April 29, 2018 at 10:43 PM
Hey Peter I read your book a few years ago that you wrote Harry Mazer. "Somebody, Please tell me who I am". I just wanted to let you know that I really loved it and appreciate your work. I just thought I'd let you know.
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Zariah! Thank you so much for taking the time to write. I'm really glad you enjoyed Somebody Please. Sadly, Harry Mazer has passed away, but he would have been delighted too. Plans are underway to make the book into a Broadway musical, so let′s keep our fingers crossed!

what one of your books would be good for a 4th grader?
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Tess! Most of my recent books are perfect for fourth graders — for example, Max Tilt: Fire the Depths, the Seven Wonders series, and the 39 Clues series.

I was wondering if the seven wonders series have been optioned yet to become movies. I would love to see it in the big screen!

Hi, Gabriela! No, not yet, but there are a couple of people looking at it in Hollywood so let’s keep our fingers crossed, and thanks for the kind words!

Hi Peter!

I just listened to an interview with you on the Harper Collins website after purchasing the first book in your Seven Wonders series. You seemed really approachable on there, so I thought I would ask a question that I hope you can answer.

As an aspiring Middle Grade Author, I am looking for literary agents to query over the next few months. I've been searching all over for who your agent is, but I can't seem to find them! Would you be willing to tell me who it is or even suggest agents who would be good to query for MG fantasy?


Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Caleb! My agents are at Sterling Lord Literistic. I’m not sure if they’re taking on any new clients, but they’re very good. I know Inkwell is good, too, and Stimola Literary Agency. Actually, there are quite a few good ones, but I’ve been with SLL for a long time so I’m a little out of the loop knowing about the other agencies. Best of luck!

are you working on a new book series ?
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Yes, two of them! One is called Max Tilt, a wild science fiction search for a treasure that will help save a life. The other is called Throwback, a time-travel adventure.
