Thank you for inspiring me. -Angel Reply I’d love to write another middle grade book. Working on it! Reply Hello Mr. Buckingham. It has been a while since I last spoke to you, I wanted to first apologize for how I used to speak with you when I was younger very enthusiastic fan. I wanted to know what you have been up to lately writing wise and book wise as I haven’t heard too much news on your latest works. You’re still one of my all time favorite authors, and Demonkeeper is still my favorite book ever written. Thank you for time. Hi Kayla! Thank you for your comment. It’s great to hear from you. I’ve been writing adult novels for Random House in Germany, but I have several that are available in English. If you liked Demonkeeper then you might enjoy Conjurer and Villain, books 3 and 4 in the Mapper series. Here are the links. And my book the Terminals is a YA. I have a new book coming out in Germany next summer which is like an adult Demonkeeper. It’s about a lawyer who is visited by the childhood monster from under his bed thirty years later…and the monster needs a lawyer. Keep reading! The book the dead boys changed my perspective on life in the most amazing way possible. I absolutely love it and I hope that you can try to maybe make a movie out of the book. Reply Hey Mr. Buckingham! I read the last 2 books from you and i was totally amazed by the world and characters you created. You gave me the motivation in reading back! But you could have done the part with Seraphina in your new book longer 😉 Many thanks for making my life a little bit happier and wish you a present time! Reply Amazing book, The Terminals… Great plot and storyline. I hooked on right away! Amazing… I am hoping the sequel will come out soon… Reply I loved The Terminals! Excellent novel! It was funny and adventurous. Please tell me that there will be a sequel. Please. Reply Thanks! I’m working on a medieval fantasy for Random House in Germany right now. But I have a sequel for The Terminals outlined and ready to go if a publisher gives me the green light after that. Reply I love this book I love the fact that I leaves me wanting more I feel like it would be a really good movie I believe u should try to make it into a movie Reply Dear Royce, Your book Terminals was great perfect it made me feel all different emotions and i was captured by evrythin that happened and every death. It was truely a good book and i think u should start a series. and please bring someone back like donnie or wally or zara it be really cool if they somehow came back to life and helped came and seiena stop Ward and his employers Reply Dear Royce, Your book Terminals was great perfect it made me feel all different emotions and i was captured by evrythin that happened and every death. It was truely a good book and i think u should start a series. and please bring someone back like donnie or wally or zara it be really cool if they somehow came back to life and helped cam and seiena stop Ward and his employers Reply Just finished “Impasse”. Excellent. My preference is for mystery/thriller genre in which the protagonist discovers unused/unknown strengths. I hope for more along the lines of Impasse. Reply Thanks Tony. I’m in the middle of writing a Game of Thrones style fantasy for Random House Germany. After I finish that one, I’ll take another look at thrillers! Reply Hi I’m Andrea I am 13 years old and I just read your book called the dead boys. I currently live in richalnd and I gotta say I loved that you based the book here. My friend Holly and I are always down at the river throwing rocks and sticks in the river. You who are inspired me to start writing stories of my own. Thank you! ~Andrea S. Reply 210 East University Pella, Iowa 40219 September 6, 2015 Royce Scott Buckingham https://roycebuckingham.com/ Dear Mr. Buckingham, I read your book The Terminals for school. I really enjoyed the book and thought that the basic idea of the story was good, let alone finding out that Cam and the others weren’t actually sick. Here I am going to list the strengths and weaknesses the I believe this story contains. I think the strengths are the entire idea of the story. I think it is a very fascinating idea and was very creative. I like how you made the center of the story around people who are terminally ill because this is something that an everyday person could experience. This adds a real factor to the story and makes it either to relate to and follow. Also, I like how you picked an island to be the setting of this story. Though it is a very common idea, I think that it fit this story well and it helped make the setting feel off the radar and undetected. Finally, I really like the twist you added to the end. I never would have expected that the whole idea was wrong and that no one was sick. I really liked this because it was a major “WOW” factor. Also I like how you had the boys all like Zara, but then Cam starts falling for Calliope at the beginning but then end up with Siena. It makes it fit the emotions of characters that age. Finally, I liked the basic idea of having a character you like “die” like when Siena “died” I couldn’t stop reading and I was quite upset. I think that some of the weaknesses in the store was lack of foreshadowing. I know that the main idea was the surprise the reader with the ending but I think having a little foreshadowing to it or to any event in the story would have helped make it more interesting. For example I think it would have been good to through hints that the Ward wasn’t who he appeared to be and that the whole thing was a sham. I think this because I like to talk a moment and stop reading to think about what the author means and what is going to happen next in the story. The only foreshadowing I noticed in the story was the chapter titles. Another weakness was that at some points in the story I would have to go back and read part of the text 3 or 4 times over due to a confusing element in it. I think that a couple slight re-wordings would help make the story more clear. Some extra things I liked about the story was the “Cam’s playlist”. I thought that was a very very cool idea. I like how it gave you a little hint about what was happening. Also I liked how you kept the ideas and attitudes of the characters of what an actual person that age would have. I think that sometimes when adult authors write books meant for teenagers they don’t express the feelings and ideas of the characters as I think they would. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and found it very fascinating. I hope you write more books soon because you are an author that I am now going to start looking for when I get new books. Also I would really enjoy seeing this book as a movie. Sincerely, Matthew Widmar Reply Hello Mr. Scott it’s me again and I realize there are questions burning inside me and I just gotta know! Is there any other info on the Thin Man/ *spolier spoiler* Ian Fortus as a child? Maybe orgins?, insider facts? Anything?! I love this character so much! I was surprised in fact you might be surprised how much 17 little words in a scentence have changed me…Little Ian…LITTLE! I need to know more…cause I don’t think I’ll get more seeing how Ian…umm went out to “Lunch” if you get what I’m saying. And I’m saddened about this I just want to know a little more…if you can’t tell me I understand…unless that info will be in later books! Well until then still absolutely love Demon Keeper! Waiting patiently(and desperately) Kayla Reply I love love loove your book The Terminals!!! Please tell me that there will be a sequel, I will cry if there isn’t. The ending makes it sound like there will be a sequel. Reply Just wondering will Demoneater, Demoncity be released in book form or is just going to be for the Kindle? Reply Hi Kayla, We are working to do both in the next few months and will make sure to post details as we get closer to releasing them. Thanks! Reply Thanks for the update. I really appricate your replies to my questions! Despite me constantly asking them! Really makes my day! Keep making these great books and I’ll be ready to read them. Love, Kayla Hi Mr. Buckingham, I read The Terminals a few months ago and absolutely loved it. The ending left me desperate for another book, and I’ve been scouring the internet for any hints of one. I know you said that you had a sequel outlined (back in June 2015), and I was wondering if there was a release date? Anything updates? Thanks!!! Reply Hi Anna (this is Anna, right? I see Anna in your email address.), The Terminals is still selling in the US and other countries, and my publisher was hoping the TV series we’ve pitched in Hollywood would be purchased. No luck yet. Thus, no sequel yet. I have set The Terminals sequel aside while I work on other projects. I’d love to get back to it, but my publisher is waiting for something to break loose before we do it. We recently sold the first book in China and the Czech Republic, so it’s still moving along. Get the word out! Thank you. Royce Reply Thanks for getting back to me! I’ll keep an eye out for any news about that pitched TV series… That would be pretty amazing. Congrats on international sales! Thanks, Anna You’re welcome, Anna. 🙂 Reply Dear Mr. Royce, I am please to announce that I have spread your books to other friends, students, teachers, etc throughout my school and I’m currently working to get my library to purchase more of your work to put on our shelves! I’ve already talked about your amazing books to many of my close friends and just random people and hope to spread more word about you during English maybe in a project or something. My goal is to make you a well known author throughout my school because you defiantly deserve it! Love, Kayla Reply Thanks Kayla! You’re the best! I’ll post on this page when we have more books out in the USA. I’m working on it. 🙂 Reply Is there any word on if there will be a sequel for the terminals? I loved the book! Reply I have the sequel outlined. We just need to sell enough books to encourage the publisher to green-light it. Spread the word! Thanks Nick, Royce Reply Sell enough books? I’ll buy a dozen to get the sequal I am in love with your book The Terminals! I saw a comment above somewhere about having a “dead” character come back and I think that would be sooooo cool. Like Donnie and Wally didn’t actually die in the helicopter explosion. Great to hear from you Kayla. I can’t confirm the rumor that a character would come back. That would be very unlikely. Not impossible. If I did, I would bring back Donnie and either take him to the other side (because the company finds him and patches him up) or have him come back and help Cam. I’m currently writing a big medieval fantasy, so I won’t get back to The Terminals for at least a year. Sorry! I’m going to put out three fantasy novels this year on Amazon, however, so watch for those! I just finished reading Demoneater and once again it was an amazing book! The action is just right and I always feel like I’m in the world of the DemonKeeper series. You also make the best villains in my opinion. Of course the Thin Man(Ian Fortus) will always be my favorite villain of yours Calamitous was a very good antagonist and very enjoyable to read. Can’t wait to read more, Kayla Reply Thanks Kayla! I really appreciate the feedback, and you’ve just inspired me to work a little harder on my villain in my current novel, Princess Assassin. Reply Hey, are your Mapper books also available in english? Because I find them nowhere 🙂 Reply Hi Melissa, We are currently working with ePublisher Gere Donovan Books to make them available for all eReaders and will also make then available in paperback through Amazon. I’ll let you know when they are ready to be released. Thanks for asking! Royce Reply Hi Melissa, I wanted to let you know that the entire Mapper series is now available in English. You can find it on Amazon for your Kindle. We’ll eventually be be making it available in print as well. Here’s a link to Book I: https://www.amazon.com/Clansman-Invoking-Darkness-Mapper-Book-ebook/dp/B01LWA7VZU/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1473473971&sr=8-6&keywords=royce+buckingham#nav-subnav Thanks! Royce Reply Hey Royce. I’m trying to make a Thin Man costume for Halloween. But I don’t know what he wears other than a trench coat. I was wondering if I could get some help to know what else I need for the coustume? If he wears anything else. Thanks Reply Who is the illustrator of demon keeper??? Daughter is doing book report and forgot book at school and I can’t find on google!!! Ugh Reply Sam Hadley is the US illustrator for the original Demonkeeper cover art. Later incarnations use the German illustrators. Reply Is there going to be a sequel to the Terminals? Reply Hi Omer! I have outlined a sequel to The Terminals, because I love the story. However, I was hired to write other books after the first book came out, so it’s a future project. In the meantime, we are working to get Terminals made into a film or TV show. Thanks for asking! Reply Where is book 2 of terminals? Reply Hi Cole, I proposed book two of The Terminals to my publisher with a complete outline. However, they had me write a different book next, and then my editor left the publishing house, and that was the end of my run at that publisher. Sooo, I have the outline, but no publisher for it at present. The first book is, however, circulating in Hollywood. Thanks for writing. Royce Reply hey mr.buckingham, im back again(been almost 6 months) this is a question you probably get a lot but when can we expect the sequel to terminals. ive read it so many times its crazy. i have never read a book more than i have terminals. you inspired me with this book so much that i started my own book. its about a 16 year old who gain the ability to bend fire and joins a group. you see him go from a superhero complex to a more of an anti-hero. im getting ahead i think (about 60 pages out of 200 some.) but anyways yeah do you have a date even a year we could expect the sequel. good luck with your next book sir. -a novice writer connor Reply Hi Conner. Sorry I didn’t see your comment more quickly. I’ve been busy! Great question regarding The Terminals. My editor asked me to prepare a sequel, and I have it entirely outlined. But then my editor left the publisher, and I moved to a different publisher (Random House in Germany). So the sequel never got published. 😦 So no sequel yet. But we are shopping The Terminals in Hollywood as a TV show. So cross your fingers. In the meantime, my Mapper series of medieval fantasies from Germany is online in English. You might enjoy that. Reply …and keep writing. It’s a great activity whether you publish or not. I love that you’re writing! Reply Hey Mr.Buckingham, I just wanted to say I love your book ‘The Dead Boys’. I read the story back in elementary school and just re-read it for the first time in years, where I’m now 17 and entering college. I was happy to see that this website is still up and that I’m still able to briefly contact you. This book has been my favorite ever since I was a kid, and I’m happy to have gotten the chance to read it again. It’s even given me inspiration to make some fan-art for it haha. A quick question I had about the story, if I may ask (and no pressure to answer), I was wondering if there was any lore surrounding the tree or the tree’s world that didn’t make it into the final cut of the story? Just curious since I loved the horror and other worldly aspect to the book. Anyways, I hope you’re well and thank you for creating such a cool book 😀 Reply Hi Joyce (Rhymes with Royce), Thank you! My youngest son is 17 and looking at colleges now. We’re going to take a trip to California to look at schools soon. Where are you thinking of attending? I love fan art, btw. Feel free to send it! Doesn’t need to be polished. Anything is fun for me to see. Sooooo…to answer your question about the tree, I originally had a monster under the bed, and a tree branch was scratching at the window. My editor said that the monster didn’t scare him, but the tree branch sure did. So I shifted to making the story all about the tree. The tree is actually the sycamore tree from my own back yard in Richland when I was a teenager (like you)–the address is 550 Saint Street if you want to google maps it and see the tree. The A-house in the story is the house I lived in when I was a little kid. All the named locations are real. That’s some extra info about the tree and other things. Thanks so much for writing me. My next book with Random House in Germany (due out the summer of ’22) is about…a monster under the bed. Best, Royce Reply I just finished “The Dead Boys” how you described what happened to each of the boys was amazing and sent shivers down my spine . I’m gonna purchase the rest of your books when i get a chance since they sound interesting. Sincerely , BORED Reply Hi Bored! What a great name. Thanks for the feedback on the trees that feed on kids! Enjoy Demonkeeper and Goblins and The Terminals. You should know that Impasse is an adult book, so only read that one if you are, you know, an adult. The Mapper series is a big medieval fantasy, so I hope you like swords.
