Your Questions About How To Discover New Books

Ken asks…

Where should I start in my novel series?

I’m writing a series of novels about a teenage girl who finds a book that give her magic powers but to keep them she must complete a number of tasks(each task is a book). But I’m trying to figure out if I should start the series before she discovers the book or after she already has and is working on the first task. Because in the later I do mention what happened before she finds the book but I’m not sure which would be a better starting point. Any suggestions?

New Niche Finder answers:

Well i am very impressed with your question

I’ll tell my opinion

First start your novel with an Prologue..About that magic books…. Give a historical background about that book.

And in your first chapter start with a dream. I mean like this.. The girl is dreaming about the climax scene and suddenly she awakes. After that she is confused with her dream and the book she saw in her dream.

One day she finds the same image of the book she saw in her dream. And the book she saw is in her grand father’s book store.

Now continue the story with adventurers events and finally you will revive a good master piece

Donald asks…

What if I could start a new religion?

What if I were to bury Harry Potter books in the desert and 1,000 years from now someone discovered the books? And soon other Harry Potter books were discovered translated into many, many different languges. Do you think it’d start a whole new religion? Does it make as much sense as christianity?

You can!
Just get the correct paperwork and have enough signed believers folowers

in speaking of harry potter books, there are two conclusions i can think of, men would have enough intelligence to know it was all fiction
and sorcery though in these works are ficitional is indeed REAL.

I wouldnt join any group that practices sorcery, and i wouldnt take up my cross unless i knew and had the promise that God would be MY strength even in my weakness

How to I tell teachers about a great book that they might want to use?

I helped Jasmina Cesic, “the Bosnian Ann Frank,” to writer her memoir of teen-aged suffering and survival. Her story is also a refugee story — she lives now in Boston. Teachers who have discovered the book have used it in classrooms with students from age 13 through college with great results, but the book is out from a small press, available mostly from Amazon, and thus not likely to be seen by most teachers. How can I spread the word to teachers who might want to introduce this inspiring true story to their students? (I don’t have a lot of money to work with.)

New Niche Finder answers:

You have to treat it as a business venture. In schools, even with text books, there are usually representatives from companies that bring physical copies of books for teachers to look at and decide if they like. I would take copies of the book to as many department heads of schools as possible. Also, you could approach librarians at different schools (or public libraries) about buying and shelving the book.

Lizzie asks…

I am looking for the title of a book I read as a child.It involved a young swindler and his adventures.Anyone?

I thought the title of the book was “Charlie The Swindler”, but I don’t think that’s right. I also thought that it was by Roald Dahl, but that also doesn’t seem to be right.
One story I remember the young swindler getting himself into was setting up a sort of rollercoaster track off of a barn roof and charging patrons to ride on it.
I would really appreciate any help in discovering this book I read as a kid! Thanks!

Since no one here has been able to recall this book, try posting this question at www.whatsthatbook.com. I hope someone there remembers your book.

Lisa asks…

If you were to read erotic fiction, would you read a caucasian story written by an African American author?

Imagine yourself in barns and noble, and you came across the cover of an interesting looking book, compelling you to remove it from the shelf. You skim through it. Then, you discover there are caucasian characters, as well as other cultures in the story. You also discover the book was written by an African American author. Would you, or would you not, continue to read it?

New Niche Finder answers:

I would still read it! I dont think it matters what race the author is, a good story is a good story.
