Vintage Art Gallery or Pocket Offices?

Nowadays, when an author asks to see their cover, we download a high-res jpg from our internal database and email it right over. But in the not-too-distant past, covers were hand-painted with oil paints on canvasses–and after the book was published, we had an oversized piece of original art left to decorate the office. When […]

A Parisian Thanksgiving

It’s officially November, which means my favorite day of the year is just around the corner: THANKSGIVING. What could be better than a day dedicated to food and family, a day when reaching for thirds (or sevenths, in my case) is not judged, but encouraged, a day when hearty New England fall harvest food takes center […]

Things I Considered Blogging About

People in costumes. New York Comic Con was last weekend and we rocked a booth this year. Sadly, I didn’t capture the people walking around as Predator, or the Ghostbusters, or the scantily clad cosplay girls. And the MILLIONS of Doctor Whos. (Seriously, you couldn’t swing a dead cat without hitting one. Not that I […]

Guest Blog: What Type of Vampire Are You?

Hi Guys! My name is Cindy a.k.a. Tynga, from Tynga’s Reviews and I was ecstatic when I was invited to stop by for a guest post! I decided to talk to you about an immensely popular mythical creature that is near and dear to my heart and the hearts of my readers at Tynga’s Reviews: […]

Summer Swelter

OMG IT IS HOOOOOOOOOOT. Hardly surprising in summer, I know, but we’d lucked out here in the city with relatively balmy, dry weather. Then BAM! Today it’s going to be over 90 degrees (it was already 80 on my walk from the subway this morning) and so humid that every bit of clothing is sticking […]

Jobs, UF, Travel, Loophole!

MY JOB = URBAN FANTASY = TRAVEL ABROAD = I HAVE A SCHEME Now, I’m no math genius, and won’t claim to be (although note that since we’ve just met I could have lied to you, but then again, we just met and that’s not the kind of guy I am; if you knew me, […]

All-Seeing Eye – video now

Just wanted to make sure everyone had a chance to check out the sweeeet book trailer for ALL SEEING EYE, from the one and only Rob Thurman. You may know her for her Leandros Brothers urban fantasy series. After tomorrow, you’ll equally know her for her supernatural thriller chops! Book description: The New York Times bestselling author […]

How to Celebrate Flag Day

How to Celebrate Flag Day Did you know that June 14th is Flag Day in America? We don’t get the day off work, so it’s clearly a minor holiday, but why not take the opportunity to celebrate? Perhaps with some ridiculous fabric: How patrotic! I came across these photos on Tumblr–apparently this is a real fabric […]

As Merry as the Day is Long

It may feel as if summer’s been in full swing for weeks now (I, for one, broke out the white pants ages ago), but here we are, officially. SUMMER. So how did you celebrate the longest day of the year? If you’re anywhere in the northeast, where we’re suffering from record-breaking temperatures, you might have been clutching your […]
