Ay I'd like to know how Justin would like me to view the world/humankind differently - if so - from reading The Passage and The Twelve. I'd like to know how/if he does indeed view the world/humankind differently after writing these two?!


Sherri Both the Passage and the Twelve are novels of epic proportions. As a reader I love this, something to really get my teeth into! How as an author did you manage to keep track of all your characters, their personal plot lines and the events which occur across time?


Kerri Kerri from Peterborough: What is your favourite part of being an authour? In the Passage how did you

Kerri there.. that was a moment in reading that really touched me... Awesome books, can't wait

Shandon Arnold The Passage was that rare book that reawakened a love of reading in me. What an amazing novel that also renewed my faith in truly creative writers. My question is, Do you think this series lends itself to movie adaptation and if so (due to the scope and size of the series as a whole) how many films would it take to be a well made adaptation? Would it be better as a t.v. show in the vain of Game of Thrones (a cable channel produced program) because of it's scale? Thank you.

Shandon Arnold In this new age of reading, what are your feelings about eBooks vs. paper books? Do you have a preference as a reader or as a writer in the experience a reader has with your novels? Do you think the medium changes the connection between the reader and the story in some way? Does it really matter as long as people are still reading? Thank you.


Beverley Albright q What do you think makes your book different that other 'vampire' virus type books?


Stephanie Why did you introduce the viral serum and then have Amy destroy them did you know you where going to do this or was this something that just came out of Amy's charter? that evo
