Long time, no see. Why, you ask? Oh, you know, I’ve just been exploring the world. Well, not quite the world, but Europe, at least. But I didn’t forget the blog while I was away! Instead, I searched out bookstores in each of the cities I visited, and explored a little of bookish culture across […]

Still Thirsty

Still Thirsty

Last Friday’s Slake event was absolutely amazing. I’m still kind of having a hard time explaining how cool it was to be in a room filled to the brim with people who think print isn’t dead or dying, but rather vital, evolving, and downright important. Not only that, but every single person there was supporting […]

Musical Awesome x2: It’s an Awesome Thing.

Musical Awesome x2: It’s an Awesome Thing.

I post the It’s an Awesome Thing series whenever I run across something particularly awesome in the store. It may include books, gift items, stationery items, etc., but they will all tend towards the quirky, cool, and just plain strange. It could happen daily, monthly, or never again, but then again, we have so many […]

Slake Your Thirst

Slake Your Thirst

Los Angeles is in for a big, frosty glass of literary lemonade (or perhaps a delicate, rare fine wine is a more apt comparison). At the beginning of this month, an exciting new publication hit the shelves: Slake Magazine. To celebrate its launch, Vroman’s and one of Slake’s editors and co-founders, Joseph Donnelly, put together […]

Congratulations, Playhouse!!

Congratulations, Playhouse!!

The Pasadena Star-News and Rose Magazine announced this morning that the Pasadena Playhouse has emerged from bankruptcy “after its financial reorganization plan was approved by a Los Angeles court.” Sounds good to me! The historic Playhouse suffered financial problems compounded by the challenging economic climate earlier this year (take a look at my original post […]

Cupcake Win!

Cupcake Win!

What do you do with cupcakes gone awry? Judge them, of course! (And then eat them.) Luckily, all the cupcake contest entries from Saturday’s event were utterly wrecktastic (it’s a good thing, I promise). The entries trickled in during a hilarious slide show of some of Jen and her husband’s favorite Cake Wrecks, followed by […]

Guest Post: Writing toward Mattering by Beth Kephart

Guest Post: Writing toward Mattering by Beth Kephart

As many reviewers of my novels have noted, my characters tend toward worry. Can they fit in, and should they? Will they be noticed, and by whom? Will they find, within themselves, the capacity and talent to leave the sort of mark they hope to someday leave upon the world? My characters live with doubt, […]
