» 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 …. 🙂

» 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.

» Hi, I was at the North Texas Teen Book Festival and I got Nemesis. First of all thank you for spending time with me and signing my book. I read Nemesis in a day, and I really liked it. I’m looking forward to the next one. Thank you again.

asked by Camryn from Texas

My response:

Thanks so much! That means a lot to me. If you’re inclined, spread the word on goodreads! And I’ll finish editing book 2….

» Hi. You probably get asked this question a lot, but are you planning to add on to the Virals series? I just finished Trace Evidence, and it was really good, but sometimes, books are written so well that even if the ending isn’t a cliffhanger, you still want more. I can’t wait to read Nemesis. It sounds really good. I love your work. I was also wondering if you were planning to make a sequel to Nemesis?

asked by Kate from Roseville, CA

My response:

No new Virals books are planned at present, but the future of the series is pretty much tied up in how well #Nemesis does, so please support it! I think Tory fans are going to LOVE Min. Nemesis is the first book of a duology, so there IS a sequel. AND I’M WRITING IT RIGHT NOW.

» Hi Brendan. Thanks for answering my last questions! I thought I would let you know one of my goals (because resolutions are bogus) is to write a book! I’ve liked writing since I was a little kid but only recently decided to write my own. I was wondering if you have any advice? I’d really appreciate it! Also, what/ where is a good place to check my work? I don’t know where a good place is to have my work thoughtful checked. Thanks so much! Ps- LOVED Nemesis! Going to preorder!!

asked by Kaytlyn Miller from West Virginia

My response:

My advice is write all the time. Get used to the process. Your third book will be better than your first, so get going, and start the learning process. And don’t worry about having all the answers before you start! No one does. Those usually come to you as you write. I would also suggest that you read widely, too, and think about what you like and don’t like in each book. It’s a great way to learn.

THANKS FOR PRE-ORDERING #NEMESIS! Pre-orders really help an author get momentum for a book project.

» Okay, SO…I am extremely, tremendously, decidedly excited for Nemesis. Honestly, Brendan, you and Rick Riordan make me hope that there is more to this world than what we see with our eyes. You take the impossible and make it something to look forward to rather than fear. And I know I’m jumping the gun since the book isn’t even out, BUT!!! I need to know this: Is Nemesis going to have a sequel? I don’t want to anticipate a second only to get the book and find out it won’t happen. So is this a one-shot? Or will there be more?

asked by Amanda Judd from Warren, OH

My response:

Thanks so much Amanda! There WILL be a second book, and I’m editing it RIGHT. NOW. #Nemesis

» Okay, so a lot of people start off by saying that they’re a huge fan of the Virals series, and I certainly am too, but I want to come up with a better word for it. Elephantine. Yeah, that’ll work okay. Anyways, the question I wanted to ask you was this: If you could go back and change on thing in the Virals series, what would it be? It could be something big, like maybe have Tory fall in love with Hi instead (which would be interesting by the way), or be something as little as making Chance’s hair red instead. I’m simply curious about what an author would say about that. I hope I get a response, but this could just give you something to think about too. Thanks for writing the Virals series. It truly is a work of imagination, and most definitely one of my favorites (I did read the whole thing more than once in, five days, I think).

asked by from

My response:

Hmmmmmm. I think, if I could change one thing, I would have brought back the Gamemaster for another go. I’ve always thought there was more that could be done with that character, but I really liked how Code came out and was too scared to ruin it by adding more. Good question!

» Hello, first off, and I know that you hear this a lot, but the Virals series is my new FAVORITE SERIES EVER!!!! I got hooked after my friend from school suggested the series to me because she knows that I like the series BONES. Well, since then I have absolutely ADORED your books and just finished Trace Evidence an hour or so ago. I know that you said, in answer to earlier questions, that if your fans made Nemesis a hit, that you would write one more Virals book. Knowing that you get this request all the time, I am here to re-iterate; Is there ANY way AT ALL that you would please write more than one more Virals book? ANY WAY at all? I am looking forward to Nemesis but nothing can take the place of the Virals. One of the reasons that I love the books so much is that they are so realistic and keep you hooked around every turn- you can always expect Tory to do the unexpected and dangerous. Fantastic characters all of them. I will reccomend these books to all my friends and will most likely re-read them over and over and over again. Thank you so much for writing a series that is so fantastic and excellent that I cant stop reading it aloud to anyone who will listen. It has been a while since I have found a series like this!!!!!! Thank you sooooo much!

asked by Rachel from Wisconsin

My response:

Thank you so much Rachel! It’s emails like this that keep me going as a writer. My offer stands, but we’ve got NEMESIS ahead and I think you guys are REALLY going to like it. Details soon!
