how tall is justin bieberI get asked all the time: Craig, why did you write a novel about Justin Bieber? Aren’t you a bit old for that? My answer is always the same: I didn’t write a novel about Justin Bieber. True, my novel, Bieber’s Finger DOES have a character named Bieber. But you won’t find the words Justin and Bieber put together even once throughout the entire book.

The fact is, there are over 5,000 people in the United States alone who have the last name, Bieber. So you might just as well confuse my character, simply named Bieber, with Jeremy Jack Bieber or Chucky Bieber, or Jane Bieber for all the difference it makes.

If you are a Justin Bieber fan, by all means, get on the Bieber bus. Contract Bieber fever. Search for Justin Bieber’s phone number online and give him a call. Go fan-girl on him. Knock yourself out.

But if you are looking for a mid-grade comedy science fiction novel about a pop star named Bieber who dies in a car bombing and is brought back to life by a superfan who makes a deal with a seedy crime boss to clone the pop star’s DNA, you might want to check out my book, Bieber’s Finger.

Let me make it completely clear; there is no character named Justin Bieber in my novel. Bieber’s Finger as a story remains completely neutral toward any true life pop star who might have the last name Bieber. Hence, Bieber’s Finger is neither a Justin Bieber fan fiction story nor a Justin Bieber hatchet job.

There, I’ve said it in writing. I’m sure I will say it again and again at every convention I attend. Bieber’s Finger is NOT about Justin Bieber.

All the best,

Craig Nybo
