Welcome to the Guestbook!
I’m always eager to read your comments about my books and stories, so please feel free to pitch in. Here are a few things for you to know:
1) I answer the messages here personally.
2) No message shows up here until I actually answer it to prevent spam and other inappropriate postings. So there will sometimes be a delay before your message posts, especially if I am traveling.
3) Teachers, a gentle request: Please do not have multiple children send me variants of the same message. A group email is much easier to respond to and not such a drain on my time. My thanks in advance for being alert to this.

I have written in here a couple times over the years. I appreciate you responding each time. My daughter is four and my son is seven, and I have started reading them, The Unicorn Chronicles. This is still one of my favorite book series. I am happy to hear that you’re planning on making this a seven part series. I plan on buying this for my children as well as my nieces and nephews. I would say on my own I probably still read the series at least once a year. Thank you for creating such a wonderful series!!
Is the Unicorn Chronicles going to be made into movies? Will you expand more on this book series?
I began a fan letter back in 2010 at the age of 9. It's in the bins of loose leaf notebooks and scraps of writing somewhere. Unfortunately I cannot find it at present and so I will finish what 9-year-old me started. The Unicorn Chronicles was my first real fantasy book that pulled me in. The books turned me into the stereotypical girl reading with a flashlight late into the night, took hold of my daydreams and introduced the genre that made them tangible. It's been a decade since then and now, in my senior year of college, the walls of my small university room are covered floor to ceiling with crates of fantasy, sci-fi, history, and everything in between. It has been a while since I dusted off my copy of the Unicorn Chronicles, but I have not managed to put down a book since the stories that started the obsession. So thank you for a lifetime of reading to come and for providing a girl living in small-town Wisconsin to endless worlds and possibilities. -TH
Im 49 today and I just ordered 2 of your books but I accidentally put the wrong day for my birthdate, since it’s a present myself. My birthday is 09-20-1971, I accidentally typed 09-30. Just wanted to correct that in case you wanted to mention it when you sign either book.
Hi Bruce I just finished Goblins on the Prowl!! Goblins in the castle was one of my favorite books besides your skull of truth growing up, and I didn't know there was a sequel until this last year! I just wanted to know if you were thinking about doing another goblins book? I would love to see more of their adventures I loved the sequel! You made this 30 year old feel like she was ten again! Thank you for your stories they help keep me forever young! I re read the skull of truth probably once a year at least thank you so much for all you and your wife do!
I'm getting the Unicorn Chronicles for my niece to read and I'm trying to find copies of The Dark Whispers and The Last Hunt in paperback but it looks like they were never published in anything but hardcover and all the used hardcover editions are very expensive. Is there a reason why the books were distributed as paperback after being published, especially as they were highly anticipated being the ending of a long awaited quartet! Thank you and I can't wait for her to enjoy the land of Luster!
I have always loved goblins in the castle. I just recently found my copy from when i was a kid and i read it to my 6 year old son he loved it so much he always wanted one more chapter instead of going to bed. I also had a copy of into the land of unicorns i had completely forgotten about. My daughter and i read it and she fell in love with it. I only now as an adult realized its a series. Apparently its almost impossible to find the rest of the books i have a copy of book 2 saved in my cart well i desperately search for book 3 and 4 for her i cant believe how impossible they are to find! The few i have found are selling for 200 dollars! Now i wish i had realized there was more then one when i was younger. I hope to find and share the rest with her! Thank you for your cant put down books!
I've written once before, several years ago, when The Last Hunt was first published. I write again to express my joy at finding the complete Unicorn Chronicles series on Audible... and with a full cast! I could not have been more excited and immediately bought all 4 books. I've been listening to Into the Land of Unicorns on my work commute and it is just an absolute joy to revisit the books that defined my childhood in such a unique way. I won't lie - I'm in my mid 30s now and while driving to work, I teared up when I heard "Luster bring me home." I just hope you know how powerfully impactful these books have been for me and many others. Lightfoot and Luster made me believe in magic, and I will always be grateful for that.
Hi Bruce! I remember as a kid reading and loving Goblins in the Castle and now I'm reading it to my two boys (5,7). They immediately fell in love with Igor and his bear, last night we read where William scared Igor, and then got bopped. Their laughter is so contagious!!
Hi Mr. Coville,
I read the My Teacher is an Alien series when I was in grade school as they were coming out. I remember devouring them then and have very fond memories of reading them nearly 30 years ago.
Now I have two small boys of my own, and I can’t wait to re-read them and some of your other works with my sons.
Thank you for sharing your imagination, your stories, and your talent with so many of us for so long.
Warmest wishes for you and your loved ones,
Into the Land of the Unicorns was one of my favorite books growing up. I lost my original copy to the postal system trying to lend it to a friend in Ireland, and I snagged a replacement from eBay a while back. I've been struggling with mental health for years now, and my love of reading has been one of the casualties. Recently I started re-reading childhood favorites in an effort to leverage nostalgia to rekindle it, and I just finished Into the Land of the Unicorns. It was a pleasant jaunt down memory lane. Thank you!
