Fan Features!

Posted by on May 21, 2013 in Uncategorized | 36 comments

First up, there’s a bit of news..or forthcoming news anyway. Tomorrow I will finally be able to reveal the cover and title to my INFINITY RING book. Woo-hoo! I’ll warn you now, it’s pretty cool. Please check in again and let me know what you think!

Okay, so one of my favorite things about being an author is hearing from readers who enjoyed something I’ve written enough to create their own art from it. I wanted to share some of what has been sent to me, shared with me, or that I’ve just stumbled upon. There are some seriously talented young people out there.

First is this poem, created by Stephanie (click to enlarge the poem). Artistically speaking, this is really nice stuff! If you happen to see this, Stephanie, please know how much I enjoyed it! Keep writing!

There is also some fantastic art created of Sage, which you can find hereΒ (with the best description ever of Sage as “the most arrogant little prick you will ever want to be your prince”),Β here, and here. Seriously, I can barely draw a straight line. These are amazing!

There is fan fiction, such as this oneΒ told from Latamer’s perspective while at the campfire (The False Prince). Great job!

And sometimes a terrific book trailer, such as this one made for The Runaway King (warning: contains spoilers from Book 1)! There are others posted too, but I wanted to be careful because they showed actual kidlets and not just images.

Many thanks to those who have used your own talents and abilities to share your enthusiasm for this series. It is the greatest of compliments to be rewarded in such a way. If you’ve created something you want me to feature on this blog, please let me know in comments below!

  1. Love these! I can’t imagine anything more gratifying than people taking the time to create artwork from other art that they love. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Ms. Nielsen,

    Thank you so much for posting my daughter’s poem. Stephanie and I are very excited that you would take the time to acknowledge her work.

    • Tami, it was my pleasure to have the opportunity of showcasing it. She showed terrific talent and I truly enjoyed what she wrote. Please send her my thanks.

  3. :O OMG. That was awesome! I love that. πŸ˜€

  4. By the way, I understand if you don’t want to answer this I probably wouldn’t either. But do you have a Skype?

    • I Skype with classes and reading clubs fairly often. Feel free to ask your teacher to put in a request if she is ever interested.

      • that’s pretty cool but I’m home schooled soo. πŸ˜›

        • Home schooling is awesome, but I agree, it does complicate some matters. I don’t Skype individually, but I hope an opportunity will come up when we can chat in person one day!

          • Great! That would be awesome! I would love to talk to the other of my favorite book!

          • That would be awesome! I don’t think i’ll EVER read another book as good as the False Prince and The Runaway King.
            I mean, how cool would it be to tell people that I talked to the other of my favorite book IN PERSON! I already am talking to you from your site. πŸ˜€

          • Thanks Dakota. And sorry for the delay in moderating messages – busy day today!

      • Ms.Nielsen, i love you and your work so much! but lets say i were to ask my teacher about skype with the class, how would she contact you to ask about the information. because my teachers have had me addicted to your books and writing down questions we would all love to have you talk to us! in fact my friend went to Barnes and Noble to buy your book (the runaway king) and she couldn’t find it!

        • Ana Lucia, she can contact me via email (jen@jennielsen.com). Either way, tell her thank you from me! I hope the B&N gets The Runaway King back in stock again soon!

  5. All the fanarts are so lovely! I also wanted to draw Sage but the best I could do was a stick figure with a crown lol.
    I don’t know if you’ve heard this song. I stumbled on it a while back and the song just screams “Sage!” to me πŸ˜€

    • Kim – Well if you’ve got a stick figure with a crown, you’re probably still twice the artist that I am! πŸ˜‰

      That’s a very cool song – I hadn’t heard it but it certainly seems to embody a lot of the angst I think Sage must feel at times. Thanks for sharing that with me!

  6. I don’t know what is happening but the comments I post are not showing up until I post another one. ?:~

  7. What do you mean by reading clubs? Like… For schools?

    • No, like some neighborhoods, city libraries, or occasionally a mom and her friends will sponsor a reading club, like a Mother-Daughter Reading Club, or a Summer Reading Club – that sort of thing. You could even organize one among other home-schooled kids if you have that association, where you all read the same book and then get together to discuss it or write about it.

      • That’s a good idea but all my friends are public schoolers and not many of them like reading i have two friends that do but I barely get to see them one lives out of state the other goes to karate with me but she cant go very often but I’ll try to start one, I’ll find some friends. πŸ˜€ THANK YOU πŸ˜€

      • E

  8. PS. Sorry it took so long to reply I haven’t been online in a while my friend is visiting and I’ve just been soooooo busy :/

  9. By the way, Do you know of any websites that can help get me started with a reading club?

  10. Am I allowed to send you a picture I drew? It’s a scene of Sage in Connor’s dungeons. It’s not very good, but it took me a long time to do and I would really like you to see it.

  11. By the way I realize that somehow I put other….Oops I meant author. Lol

  12. Thank you so much for writing the Ascendance Trilogy!! They are one of my favorite book series, as well as Harry Potter and Percy Jackson πŸ™‚ To be honest, about three quarters of the way through the last book I was getting ready to smack you, but I was so happy I didn’t once I read the ending!! πŸ˜€
