    About J.T. Holden


    1. J.T Holden is the author of three books of rhyming poetry Alice in Verse The Lost Rhymes of Wonderland A compilation of masterful original poetry The Children s Book Review , Twilight Tales A Collection of Chilling Poems Filled with atmospheric rhymesvid images and palpable tension Foreword Reviews , and O The Dark Things You ll See A delightfully dark sendup to Dr Seuss s Oh The Places You ll Go Teen Reader Review J.T s novels include The Boys From Manchester A richly textured and atmospheric coming of age fantasy talehauntingly beautiful and starkly realisticwith an explosive, action packed finale The Midwest Book Review , Three Imaginary Boys One of the best Halloween reads I ve come across in quite a while Reviewer , and JB Or The Unexpected Virtue of Being Swaggy This splendid satire is a real page turner I couldn t put it down Teen Reader Review.On his work I love coming up with new and different stories to tell It makes it a little harder on marketing when all of your books don t fall into a simple and easily labeled category, but my tastes have always run a bit eclectic as anyone who has read Twilight Tales can tell you The one constant, or linking factor, would be that all of my novels center on teenage boys coming of age, so there s always a good deal of me in at least one of the main characters The other constant is that there is never a bad guy in my novels at least not in the willful or wanton sense Even the villains in Manchester and Three Imaginary Boys are not wholly villainous each has his or her own demons to contend with, forces beyond their control, or comprehension, that made them the way they are For me, the villain with no redeeming qualities is like the hero with no flaws bland and uninteresting.On superpowers in his books I ve only written two novels that don t feature any characters with superpowers both set for release in 2016 , and though I m proud of both, I d have to say that I prefer writing stories about teens with superpowers But as anyone who has read my books knows, I strive for a realistic take on the subject I grew up on DC comics and still love them to this day, but I m wise enough to recognize that I do not possess the sort of flare it takes for that style of writing Instead, I do what I do best telling stories of teens in the early development of their special powers which is why there will never be a sequel to The Boys From Manchester Not because there isn t to tell, but because I ve already told the best part of it I ll leave it up to the imagination of the readers to decide what happens with Daniel and Brandon and Cody in the future when they re grown up and have realized the full potential of their powers In experience, the origin story is usually the best, and often the only one worth writing or reading.On reviews Though I ve received extremely positive reviews from Foreword, The Midwest Book Review, and The Children s Book Review, my two favourite reviews came not from professional critics but from regular readers The first came from an customer named John whose entire review of Manchester consisted of two sentences Innovative storytelling, epic story of super powers, great gay romance Not what I expected in terms of typical gay fiction The second review was for JB and came from Gayle Slagle on , a longer review that she summed up with this statement The heart of the book lies in the inner battle between JB and his id, Kid Swaggy it is the classic battle between good and evil that is waged within each of us on a daily basis What I love about these two reviews is that they came from readers who didn t just enjoy my books but truly understood what they were about.

    1. For those who've read Holden's first book Alice in Verse: The Lost Rhymes of Wonderland, the fluid rhyming scheme and clever lyrics of Twilight Tales will come as no surprise. Though Alice in Verse had its darker moments (The Mariner's Tale; The Walrus & the Carpenter Head Back), none can begin to hold a candle to the darker moments in this book, which begins with a set of deceptively "innocent" poems, ranging from the subtle and mournful (The Depths; La Llorona) to delightfully morbid and c [...]

    2. 4.75 stars. I received this book through a giveaway in return for a fair and honest review.The only negative thing I found with the book was the subject matter of the first part. The poems (such as Mary Worth) are not very scary, unless you read them to a younger child, but the subject matter is too intense to read to a child. I don't know if that makes sense, but it's kind of how I see it. It's really just a small thing, and as the book goes on, the poems get much creepier!Now that we've got t [...]

    3. As always, concerning my own work, it would be inappropriate for me to offer a review. I will, however, say that I am very proud of this book, and very impressed with the art by Andrew Johnson and Gene Kelly.I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.Best,JTH

    4. I was contacted by the author asking me to review this book, at first I will admit I turned it down, but agreed to read and review his 'Lost Rhymes of Wonderland', the author decided he might as well send both through so I ended up getting this one too, and I have to say I'm pleased he did.I originally turned it down because I am a wimp and I don't like scary or spooky reads, and these sounded a little bit too dark for me and I'm not a huge fan of poetry anyway.A couple of the poems were quite d [...]

    5. I will be the first to admit that I don't read poetry of any form, but when the chance came to read Twilight Tales I thought I would give it a try. Granted it is poetry, but its 'chilling poems' so I was curious to see how poetry could be made 'chilling'.It didn't take me long to read Twilight Tales but I found myself enjoying it. My first thoughts we how much I love the cover, it may be simple but it is very eye catching and I would defiantly stop and pick this up if it were in a shop to see wh [...]

    6. The author of Alice in Verse is back with Twilight Tales, a book of deliciously scary poems which will hit the spot whether it's Halloween or you just would like a good scare. Not really for younger children, the poems in Twilight Tales grip you tightly and crawl into your mind and soul. The illustrations only enhance the poems and their influence on the reader. Bravo! I look forward to much more from the author!!

    7. I bought Alice in Verse because I was intrigued by the fact that someone would take on a myth and do such a great job of it. I think Lewis Carroll would be proud. I bought this book because of the trailer. Yes, a book trailer! Maybe that's nothing new for some, but for me its an innovation. If you haven't seen it, Youtube it. Its almost Halloween and this one is perfect for the occasion!
