Thomas E. Sniegoski is
one of my favorite authors. I had the pleasure of interviewing him in September. The multi-published author has
titles that range from young adult to urban fantasy to comic books and graphic
novels. He's even turned his pen to an Angel novel or two.
In honor of the holidays, he's giving away autographed copies of his Remy Chandler novels and his
Owlboy novels for the kids. The series follows Billy Hooten who dreams of being
a superhero. It's a fantastic set of books for parents and kids alike. Sniegoski
is one of those rare authors that creates rich, vibrant characters that you
imagine could walk off the page and have a conversation with you – when they
aren't smiting the bad guys.
A Kiss Before
Remy Chandler has many talents. He can will himself invisible, he
can speak and understand any foreign language (including the language of
animals), and if he listens carefully, he can hear thoughts. Unusual, to say the
least - for an ordinary man. But Remy is no ordinary man - he's an angel.
Generations ago, he chose to renounce heaven and live on Earth. He's found a
place among us ordinary humans; friendship, a job he's good at - and love.
Now he is being drawn into a case with strong ties to his angelic past. The
Angel of Death has gone missing - and Remy's former colleagues have come to him
for help. But what at first seems to be about tracing a missing person turns out
to involve much more - a conspiracy that has as its goal the destruction of the
And only Remy Chandler, formerly known as the angel Remiel, can stop it.
Dancing on the Head of a
the loss of his wife, fallen angel Remy Chandler has immersed himself in
investigating dangerous supernatural cases. His latest: the theft of a cache of
ancient weaponry stolen from a collector who deals in antiquities of a dark and
dubious nature. The weapons, Remy knows, were forged eons ago and imbued with
unimaginable power. And if they fall into the wrong hands, they could be used to
destroy not only Heaven but also Earth. Sniegoski is currently working on the
third Remy Chandler novel, Where Angels Fear to Tread, and plotting a fourth.

Billy Hooten Owlboy
is a weird kid. He gets beaten up a lot, and spends the rest of his time
doggedly trying to build a robot. One day, Billy Hooten hears a cry for help
coming from the cemetery that borders his backyard. Against his better judgment,
he runs toward it. And after that, everything changes for Billy Hooten. Because
Billy Hooten, you see, is Owlboy. A quickthinking, goggle-and- feather-wearing
superhero who protects the bizarre and monstrous citizens of Monstros City, a
city that exists under Billy's hometown of Bradbury, Massachusetts. But is Billy
truly worthy of the moniker Owlboy?

My daughter would love this series and would give her something to read over the holiday. She has read the Ranger's Apprentice series, so I know she'll love this.

My grandson would enjoy 'Owlboy', the adventures of Billy Hooten. He is a great reader.

I would like to give this gift to a friend of my that's really had it rough this past year, with jobs and such! We share a great interest in reading and I thing she would really enjoy these books.

I'd give the gift to my sister. She takes care of our parents, she adopts pets who turn out to have problems and she is always there when we need her.

Dancing On The Head Of A Pin looks very interesting. I'd love to "gift" them to myself to read.

I would love to give the young adult books to my "little guy". He's really getting into reading and this sounds right up his alley. The Remy's would be for me. I LOVE the series & have gotten several people hooked on it w/ my recommendation.
