    Wow! That sounds so cool!

    Neat idea Mr. MacHale!!!

    I read “The Light” and I have to say, it was awesome!! I finished the book in 2 days. I picked it up, and I just could not put it down!! I was bummed when I found out that “The Dark” was not out yet. In reality though, that added to the excitement of “The Light” knowing that you had written it so recently.

    I cannot wait for the next one! You’re brilliant!!

    Have a great Tour!

    Okay this has nothing to do with the light but instead Pendragon( best series ever better then Harry Potter) Okay i have read and re-read the books so many times its uncanny! But i had a ? on some of the things in your book……………
    1.) is books nines premise kinda like the Holocaust with the who greater race and perfection??? ( i could be totally wrong but i leaned in history ever detail and if you take out the religious beliefs part then its kinda the same.
    2.) And where did you get the inspiration for the Lifelight tubes in book 4??? If i had know last year i would have asked at the ucla festival of books sorry!

    I was watching youtube last week, and came across a video of you (by Simon and Schuster) and you said that the Travelers where true… but wouldn’t you forget everything since you also said that you where a traveler? And, you had to use a little imagination because you wanted to protect your acolytes… so they wouldn’t get questioned and stuff… so… ha, ha double ha, HA

  8. Mike says:

    Thanks so much for answering my questions, DJ.

  9. Mike says:

    Seems to unreal – you talking, in a sense, to me! Ut’s incredible! You don’t get enough credit for your work. It unfair. You should’ve been the next JK Rowling!

  10. (name deleted) says:

    Ahem… mike… He technically IS the next JK Rowling… but Movie Critics won’t admit it. THEY ARE TOO SCARED FOR AWESOMENESS!!!

    D.J. MacHale + Brandon Mull + Rick Riordan=
    Just as good or better than J.K. Rowling.

  12. Delighted says:

    I just wanted to say thanks for making me pick back up on reading….what? you ask. Well, I use to be a BIG time reader many years ago. For instance, I would have read ‘The Light’ in a days time. I got out of that when college and kids happened. I fell out of reading novels altogether. My 9th grade daughter and I went to the library last Friday and she persuaded me that I should practice what I preach to her (read, read, read)…I thought about it and (of course), she was right. She explained that she was tired of hearing me say how much I would read after school and on my weekends and yet, she never sees me reading anything other than a newspaper. This is lengthy, I know, but I wanted you to know that I started reading on a Saturday morning and finished it on a Saturday evening (with dinner in between 🙂 I didn’t expect that and I was delighted and my daughter was proud! The Light was the 1st time I’d read a novel in a really long time and it did not disappoint at all. So, again, I thank you for writing such a good book! I will be going out to get The Black on April 19th and my daughter and I both intend to read it!

  13. D.J. MacHale says:

    Delighted…I am absolutely delighted to hear that story. I love it!

  14. Blacksword says:

    Do you have a specific way of planning out the books you write?
    (just curious)

    Mr. Machale:

  16. Bobby Pendragon says:

    I agree with (name deleted) I love all those authors but you, DJ are still the best!!!

  17. ~ says:

    ^^ It sounded like you said you liked all of the authors besides D.J.

  18. Sean says:

    I love watching these videos, D.J. 🙂

  19. Dominic says:

    Do you like basketball? Do you like online games? Do you like to create your own basketball players and guide them through their careers from high school to college? Or are you a head coach type of guy? Do you want to coach the top college basketball programs in america like Duke? Kansas? North Carolina? Well this game has them all! You can even coach fictitious professional teams or high schools! Interested already? Then read below! I will give you a little more insight on the game!

    It”s an old MMORPG starting over. It’s 100x better than Cyber dunk. You can create coaches or players. As a player, you start off in high school then move through hs to college then the pros. You can coach HS, college, or the pros. You can put in game plans for your team to decide how they play in a game. You can also have team practices to see how good your roster is. There will eventually be drafts for players and such. It is not super active right now due to the amount of players, but the user base is growing rapidly. The first season is about to start in a few days, so if you want to join, then join quick! For games, there will eventually be a live play by play (they have it right now, but it isn’t perfected) and possibly animations so you can actually watch a game! You can watch your own created players face off against other people’s players from around the world! Or you can watch your teams and guide them to a championship! In high school there will be a tournament with all the state champions to determine an overall high school champion, and in college, there will be a tournament like march madness. In the pros, there will just be normal playoffs.

    -Turning Point
