Dear author, would there be a second series of this book The Face of The Fear?

I would ask him if Z Pita at least paid him a commission for all the marketing he did for it in the book. :lol2:

On a serious note though, I would want to know why he made it so difficult for Paul and Rachelle to get together. Every time they took a step forward, something happened that took them several steps backward. It was quite frustrating.

I'm always curious as to why author's choose or create the cover that they do, so I'd ask why they chose this cover; I know about Ghost Face and all, but what was it that made THAT stand out as the cover pic as opposed to other possible pictures.

I would like to understand why the cover, as well as the title was chosen.

I would ask him why he took the cover art of a horror genre and put it on a book that is mystery and suspense.

I would like to know why he chose to have Paul and Rachelle so indecisive about their feelings towards each other throughout the entire book. What purpose did their relationship serve in the story?

Dear author, I love the chaos you created based on the cover page and the title of the book. My question is the storyline continuing in the future?

My question would be the motivation behind the cover of the book?

The Ghost Face cover page immediately brought to mind scenes from the Scream franchise. Is there any specific reason this was used? And, with the cover and the title not necessarily the center points of the story, why go with it?

I second this question. It's always interesting to hear what the author was going for with their cover choices.

What questions would you like to ask RJ Torbert author of The Face of Fear?
Questions for R. J. Torbert:
1. Why'd you choose your neighborhood as the setting of this book, anything special?
2. Why'd you choose the ghost face mask for the book cover?
3. Do you plan a sequel to this book?
4. Is there a plan for a movie based on this book?
If you are TOO BIG to DO SMALL things, then you are TOO SMALL to DO BIG things...

If you want to be remembered long after you are gone, WRITE books worth READING or DO things worth WRITING about...
