» You Nemesis book seems to be doing well! I haven’t read it, and I have A LOT of books to read, but it is on my list! I was wondering if you were going to stick to what you originally stated that if it did well enough, you would write another Virals book? I absolutely LOVE that series, and I got my sister into it. I would love to see another book! I read the short stories, but I want to see where it goes from there!

asked by Meghan Hatfield from Idaho

My response:

Hi Meghan! I ALWAYS keep my word, but in this case the problem will be timing. I’m under contract for a few more books, and the publisher will have a say in what they are. So I will keep up my end, but it may be a little while before I can. I know that’s not what you wanted to hear, but publishing is a business and I don’t get to make all the calls!

Also, if you’re from Idaho, you should DEFINITELY read Nemesis ASAP! ๐Ÿ™‚

» I read your book Nemesis, and it was amazing. Do you believe in any conspiracy theories? Your book talks about a goverment conspiracy. So I was wondering if you believe any conspiracy and which ones?

asked by Claudia from Greer, SC

My response:

I firmly believe that clowns are out to get us. They are out to get us.

» Hey Brendan! Like everyone here, i’m a HUGE fan of your series, the virals (though i havent had the chance to read nemesis yet) and so I’m doing a school project on you! The problem is, I can’t find anything on you (even a birthdate!) and I was wondering if you could help me out by sharing a fun fact about yourself. It would help a ton and I’d get to know one of my favorite authors a little more! Thank you so much and keep up the good work!

asked by Laura from Canada

My response:

I don’t reveal my birthdate online because of scammers possibility getting it, sorry. Fun fact about me: I am seriously uncomfortable around birthday cakes. Like, I don’t like them and they make my skin crawl. Weird enough for you? ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Sorry if this is late for your report though!

» I recently finished ‘Nemesis’ and loved it, especially the original ending. As an aspiring author, what advice would you give? I am published online but not completely professionally. I personally feel like my writing ability has dropped in the past year. Thank you!

asked by Rachel from Georgia

My response:

I think writers have to write, nearly every day. At least a little. I’m a firm believer that practice gets you closer to perfect, and that everyone can be a writer. It’s a skill, not an art, and like all skills you get better the more you do it. So I say, if you feel like you’re slipping a little, try a new project you feel passionate about and get back to putting words on the page. It’s a good way to kickstart yourself out of a funk. Good luck!

» Hi Brendan! I wanted to just start this off by saying I love all of your books (I loved the Virals series, and I just finished Nemsis about two hours ago). I met you once at YALLFest too and it was great! I was just curious about the inspiration of the plots for your books. You usually always have some sort of mystery, but they vary so much from book to book I was wondering how you usually think of each scenario. Also, once you have an idea for a mystery (or a conspiracy), do you figure out all of its details before starting or discover some along the way with the characters? Thanks!

asked by Madeline from New Hampshire

My response:

Thanks Madeline! I get book ideas from everywhere, often from movie trailers that don’t end up being what my brain initially guesses that they will be in the first five seconds, or sometimes even weird dreams. Once I have an idea I sit down and write an outline the includes all of the major plot points in the story. I like to know what I’m writing each day before I begin. Thanks just me, though. Many authors don’t need t hat much pre-planning. It’s a personal thing.

» Nemesis is now one of my favorite books, I can’t wait for the second one!!! Ok any way, did you get inspiration from real places when making Fire Lake?

asked by River from Kansas

My response:

Thanks River! Fire Lake is loosely based on the town of Sandpoint, Idaho. But Fire Lake a bit smaller, and way more isolated. But the for that “secluded Idaho vacation lake town” feel, that was the inspiration.

» I just finished reading Nemesis and I absolutely loved it! I was wondering, how many books do you plan on making for the Nemesis series because I never wanted the book to end.

asked by Owen Farmer from Cochrane, Alberta, Canada

My response:

Thanks so much, Owen. I am busily finishing the sequel to #NEMESIS right now, and it will complete this main story. That said, I may not be totally finished with this conspiracy yet …. ๐Ÿ™‚

» I just want to say that I was absolutely in love with Nemesis, I’m sad that I finished it so quickly because it was so good. When are you planning to release the sequel to Nemesis?

asked by Jill from Denton, TX

My response:

Thanks Jill. The sequel should be out around the same time next year, so look for it in March 2018! I just finished the second draft and it’s darker and crazier than NEMESIS. I think you’ll like it.

» So I read Nemesis, and I just want to say that it was a total whirlwind of a book. Min is surprisingly like Tory, and Sarah and Jessica reminded me of the Tripod, sort of. What surprised me most was Noah, at the end. Anyway I just wanted to ask whether a sequel was in the works and if so, how many books to expect in total? Fingers crossed for another Virals installment as well.

asked by Reilly from Pennsylvania

My response:

Thanks, Reilly. There will be a sequel to NEMESIS out around this next year, so keep a close eye on my website in the next few months for more details. And thanks for reading!

» Not much of a question at all. I just wanted to say thank you for writing such a good book. I wasn’t introduced to you until two weeks ago, but now I’m going to read all of your books. Nemesis is an amazing book filled with mystery, and I couldn’t look away from the pages for one minute. When do you usually tour?

asked by Gray from Colorado

My response:

Wow, thanks Gray! That’s really nice. I usually tour for the first week my book is out, and that was the gameplan this year. But I attend festivals all year long, and hope to see you at one soon.
