Your Questions About How To Discover New Books

Joseph asks…

Do you think the new stephen king book sounds like The Simpsons Movie?

I read a preview of his new book “Under the Dome”. It sounds exactly like The Simpsons Movie. A town in Maine discovers they’re surrounded by a giant dome. People start to wonder what’s up and try to find out the reason that the dome is there.It just seems a little weird how they both came up with the same idea in this close of time.

Nancy asks…

3 new book ideas I have in mind!?

YAY! I got 3 new book ideas I wanna share with you all. Now, one is about vampires. About maybe 5% similar to Twilight, but not really.

#1. A story about a foreign Business lady going to Italy to work at one of the largest trading companies in the world. Later, while staying at her new collage location, she discovers a strange vampire like person who, at first, is afraid of. As time passes on, she starts to notice and talk to him more and more. While their relationship starts developing, they encounter evil threats that are occurring through nights. They find out that the creatures who are causing strange happenings are Gargoyles, sworn enemies of Vampires. Later, she meets with his coven of group. Which is made up of at least 10 more vampires. As the story passes on, a new human enters and later becomes interested in the same coven. I plan to make this into a series…. the best part is when the Vampires and Gargoyles go into a fight. OK, this description was horrible! If you didn’t get it, You can contact me later.
I apologize if its like twilight! I don’t see anything alike!

2. This one is wierd. Its about how a middle school thinks of their unfair laws and decide to throw of high school students off their location to take over. The middle schooler think of themselves as royalty. The high schoolers get angry… they want revenge. Later, a fight happens and everthing gets out of control until another group collage students try to figure out a way to end all the madness. sorry, if you didn’t like that one. Again Description is horrible..but story is better.

3. This one no one will care about. But a book series of 6 or 7 books of the video game MediEvil from 1998. I want to turn this story into a series so people can get the story. Find out about the game by going to Wikipedia and searching about it. Cuz I don’t wanna type no more!

Well, these are new ones. The old ones I had in mind were canceled. Please tell me critcis. What do you think about these ideas? What can be changed? Be Nice and Mean! IT ALL HELP!

THANKS!!!!!!!!!

2 doesn’t really make any sense to me. I dont think it would make a good book. Sorry

and i think you should change up some things in #1 so its even less like twilight.

Sandy asks…

How would you want to go down in the history books?

Assume you’ve died and before you died, you accomplished something great. What is it? What did you do? Did you conquer the world? Did you usher in the next musical phase? Did you solve world hunger? Bring about world peace? Did you discover new worlds? Invent the next great thing? Give billions to charity?

What is the future going to know you for?

New Niche Finder answers:

Ummmm… I’d like to be known for all the minorities that I’m a part of. I’m an atheist, lesbo (or at least bi), biracial, vegetarian girl. I’d like such people represented in history, since all we learn in school is about white straight christians.

Ummm… What can i do? Create a big movement with some book that I wrote. That’s what I’ll do. Write a very important and famous novel.
