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.

Hi Bruce,

I just finished reading The Weeping Werewolf at school and my favorite character was Moongobble. I liked him because he tried his best to do magic. When did you make this book?

Also, do you celebrate Halloween or Christmas? If you celebrate Halloween, do you dress up? I'm being a vampire for Halloween.

Where do you live? Have you ever been to Washington?

Hi, Arianna -

I'm glad to know you enjoyed "The Weeping Werewolf." You asked when I made the book. Instead of giving you the answer, I will tell you how you can always check on something like that. One of the pages at the front of the book is called the copyright page. Copyright is a law the protects an author and keeps people from stealing his or her work. If you look at the copyright page it will tell you the year of the copyright. That will also be the year when the book was first published.

I totally love Halloween! I have a black cape that I wear to answer the door for Trick or Treaters. Sometimes I have a skull mask that I wear with it. It is nicely creepy.

Happy reading
