Scenes from a Signing

One of the highlights of the RWA conference is the many publisher book signings. Pocket held theirs on Friday afternoon, with more than twenty authors in attendance. Below are a few impressions from the event–and at the end, despite the cartons and cartons of books we unpacked, nary a copy was left!  

Scenes from RWA, Day 1…

Things I have learned already at #RWA13: 1) This week, it is cooler in Atlanta than in New York City. 2) It is possible to walk the three blocks to the conference hotel almost entirely in air conditioning. 3) If you sit in the middle of the Marriott Marquis bar, you will eventually see every […]

RWA, Here We Come!

  We’ve packed our suitcases, polished our nails, and scheduled more meals and drinks than one would think humanly possible, and now our Pocket editorial team is off to #RWA13! The annual Romance Writers of America conference is a 4-day whirlwind of meeting old friends and new, of hearing pitches from hopeful would-be authors and […]

A Golden Age of Geekdom (kicking off #SDCC)

Michael R. Underwood’s Celebromancy hits e-stores today–just in time for San Diego Comic Con. (Anyone need plane reading on their way to the West Coast? Hint. Hint.) In this follow-up to Geekomancy, which first portrayed Underwood’s unique urban fantasy world driven by the powers of fandom, we find Geekomancer Ree Reyes battling Hollywood, and those […]

Author Mia March, on the question no reader has to ask!

Mia March is the author of The Meryl Streep Movie Club and Finding Colin Firth, on sale now from Gallery Books! Very few readers have asked me why I wrote a novel called Finding Colin Firth–because it’s so danged obvious! Who doesn’t want a Colin Firth of her own? Since I first saw the Oscar-winning […]

We had a blast at Book Bash! Photopalooza…

We had an amazing time at Book Bash, whether visiting with fans at the signing, celebrating with new Gallery and Pocket authors, or line dancing with everyone at the afterparty. (OK, we didn’t line dance–too uncoordinated for that!) Here’s a look at what went on…

Book Bash! Are You Going?

Have you heard about Book Bash? This massive book-signing event is taking place in Orlando this Saturday, with over fifty authors there to sign books, meet fans, and answer questions. Founded by Maryse’s Book Blog, this event features a ton of indie authors, traditionally published authors, and those who’ve crossed over one way or the […]

Paranormal Romance Strikes Blow for 1st Amendment

                    How much do we love this article that ran in today’s Salon.com? Prison inmates are not allowed to have “obscene” reading material, apparently, but in the case of Andres Martinez, the book corrections officers confiscated was paranormal erotica–The Silver Crown, a Black Lace title, by […]
