    I want to be a writer too. Now how long does it take? How many pages should a chapter have and do they have to be the same as the other?:)! I love writing and reading and when I have to go to recess my teacher lets me stay inside because I am reading. I mean I have the biggest addiction on writing and reading. That once I went to the doctor from getting a rash on my arm From not going outside and OH ya I forgot that I also read in the dark too!:)

    Hello Mr. Korman (and whoever else is reading this) I would just like to say that I like your books, but you kind of exaggerate the importance of the 39 clues. Especially in your book eight interview. I think you should be less secretive or serious about it. I mean, if you reveal some things that you’re not supposed to, you won’t get killed or arrested, the only thing that would happen would be that several million 39 clues fans would get mad at you for revealing the storyline when thay want to read it for themselves… You know what, scratch that and continue with what you’r doing. Thanks!

    I loved the book. The circled words are really sentences. Write all the words on a paper and it will form a couple of sentences. I really want to know what Nellie is hiding. It’s not fair that we have to wait so long.

    Hi, Mr. Gordon. I have read all your books. I am a fan of all your series and not series, especially the on the run series. Not to mention Kidnapped. I have read all your books. It’s hard not to include you in the 39 clues series by your work. I am wondering, how long does it take to write a simple book? Plus, if you know and/or met Rick Riorden, (I forgot how to spell his name) can you ask him why he didn’t bother to continue the 39 clues series when he was off to a great start and would double the amount of fans of the percy jackson and the olympians series. Thanks. P.s. if you can’t answer the second question, at least answer the first!

    Hi I am a huge fan of The 39 Clues books and I have a few questions and ideas. First I think that you should talk to some people and try and get a movie started. Also how do you figure out the clues in the front of the books!
