This is going to a great even for readers! Barnes & Nobles is taking three days to celebrate the best books for teens! Friday is B-In the Know, Saturday is B-First and B-Part of the Fun, and Sunday is B-Creative!...

The Cupids Casting

One of the many processes I go through when writing a new story is cast each character.

So, if you like to picture yourself as the main character, go for it! I do the same thing when it’s a tough and beautiful female lead. There’s also a mini-bio for each character. You’ll...

S.T. Bende & The Asgardians

Downstairs, they have Darth Vader, Chewbacca, and occasionally Boba Fett. (Boba Fett!!) Upstairs they’ve got Spiderman and Thor . . . and I think...

BEA, Besties, & the Bounty!

Book Expo America is a leg-numbing, crowd-cramming, novel-nabbing tradition for me each Spring. The adventure has taken place in New York City every year I’ve attended, and it never fails that in addition to having great friends with me, I make more wonderful buddies along the way. Bloggers, librarians, and industry professionals, oh my! BEA is all about connections. Learning about people and their passion and standing/sitting...
