  1. Hello Will:
    I’m a middle school librarian and director of Cavalcade of Authors: Read, Write, Imagine – We are a teen reading / writing conference in Richland, Washington where students are required to read four of our 17 authors to gain admittance to the conference and authors provide writing workshops for students to attend. Thirty schools participate in our event sending 1100 students. I just finished Jackaby and absolutely loved it. I know you are a high school English teacher so not sure you are able to do conferences – but I would love to talk to you more about our conference and invite you to our April 2017 event. If you are interested in learning more you can go to our website: and contact me at . It would be such a pleasure to talk to you about our event.
    Many Cheers!

  2. Hi Will! We love your books here in Prescott, AZ. Our teen library group would like to know if you do Skype visits? Will you let us know?

    I missed your signing at Powell’s recently and I was so sad! But I got a signed copy of Ghostly Echoes and loving it so far. You’re a writer I really respect and love the story of Jackaby 🙂

  4. Hi Will,

    I am also curious as to whether time might permit you to do a Skype visit for the teens at the Johnson City Public Library. Your books are fantastic, and I can’t wait until we receive Ghostly Echoes!
