Daughter of Smoke & Bone author Laini Taylor talks about the worldbuilding process and her new book, STRANGE THE DREAMER. Laini Taylor is a truly unique soul. She creates these wonderfully special worlds and these amazing characters that just make us open our eyes to her imagination. The world she built for the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy was one that was magical and beautiful and jaw-dropping. The words she graced us with, especially in her book three, was musical and lyrical, if you can imagine that. And now she has another book coming called Strange the Dreamer, the…

Writer/actor/director Andrew McCarthy is coming out with his first fiction novel titled JUST FLY AWAY about a 15-year-old who runs away to live with her grandfather. Some people may recognize the name of Andrew McCarthy as that of one of the 80’s heartthrobs of the “Brat Pack” (which included fellow young and hot actors Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, and Demi Moore to name a few.) But he’s since grown away from that label, all the while keeping a steady pace in Hollywood as director in shows like Netflix’s Orange is the New Black and NBC’s The Blacklist. McCarthy had already written The…

Watch Michelle Hodkin read excerpts from the Mara Dyer spinoff, The Shaw Confessions, which is told from the point of view of Noah Shaw.

It’s very different, but it’s going to continue the stories of those characters.…

As a side note, there’s a note on the bottom corner stating that this version of the book…

Lauren Oliver talks about the movie based on her book, BEFORE I FALL, and her next exciting book, Ringer. We got a chance to spend some time with Lauren Oliver, the best-selling author of Before I Fall, to discuss the movie adaptation of her book, Hollywood and their approach to YA literature, and what she tease us about her next book, Ringer (formerly titled Helix,) the sequel to Replica. Before I Fall was optioned back in 2010. When did you realize the movie was actually going to be made? I think it was probably the moment when I went to Vancouver and…

Fan concerns about CARVE THE MARK lead Veronica Roth to issue a response. Veronica Roth’s Carve The Mark may have become an instant bestseller, but it also received some criticism after release. Namely, some readers accused the book of presenting a light-skinned culture fighting against an antagonistic dark-skinned culture that appropriates Arabic and Islamic facets. The author took these allegations head on in a lengthy blog post, in which she carefully deconstructed some points of the argument and also admitted to some flaws in her work. Here are some highlights. On “light-skinned” Thuvhe v. “dark-skinned” Shotet: My intention with Thuvhe…
