Purple Phantoms Marketing Logo!


  For my new Young Adult novel, Purple Phantoms, one of my high school students, Joshua Marlow, created a logo for the marketing of the novel. He did a wonderful job!  This is not the book cover.

The Young Adult novel is about the haunting of a high school basketball team.

I’m looking forward to your feedback: Please email me: Purplephantoms@yahoo.com

Purple Phantoms: Young Adult Novel!


At Barnes & Nobles

When my editor, Dennis DeRose, and I talked about my fourth novel Purple Phantoms, two words came up that sent shivers up my spine: Young Adult. Oh my God, how do I handle the marketing of a young adult novel?

My three previous novels have been marketed to adults: A Brownstone in Brooklyn, Philly Style and Philly Profile and the 2011 national award winning Ghost of Atlanta. Now, with Purple Phantoms scheduled for publication in 2012, I must plan the marketing process now.

I read that the young adult market covers ages 12-18. This group spans an age range which covers almost an entire decade. This is a complex genre as there are tremendous differences in the intellectual and emotional maturity of fourth grader versus a college freshman.

I know there are certain unique features which set the young adult novels apart.

My problem: How do you market to such a diverse group? I’m not afraid to ask for help and advice to reach the maximum number of young readers. Where and how do you blog to this group? What kind of website do you develop for young adults? How do you get libraries involved in the marketing of young adult books?

Help! Help! Help!

Please email me with any advice:

Fantastsic Ghost of Atlanta Book Review: Barnes & Nobles!


I wanted to share this wonderful news!

This is why I write.

As an author  it’s an incredible feeling to see that you have touched a reader with the books you write.

The 2011 National Gold Medal Award winning novel Ghost of Atlanta received an incredible book review by a reader on the Barnes & Nobles Website:
“Great Read!

Mr. Thompson has a way of writing that puts your right alongside his characters. He has taken the use of all senses to another level. A literary piece indeed! I will be picking up more of this authors work.”
