Poltergeeks Book Tour – Guest Post


*Cue drumroll* Today’s guest star on the blog is author Sean Cummings, who is visiting all the way from the great white north, Canada. Sean is the author of several urban fantasy novels and has this year taken the plunge into young adult fiction with his novel Poltergeeks, coming out soon from Strange Chemistry, the shiny new young adult imprint of Angry Robot Books. You can find my review of the novel here. And without further ado, here’s the man himself, talking about both his new book and the new genre he is tackling.
