    Several years ago, prior to San Diego Comic Con, I made an offhand comment to my friend Jason Rekulak (Quirk's publisher) offering to dress up as Elizabeth from Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, thinking it would be fun having a Quirk character roaming the show floor. There was a pause, then the question “would you really?” Heck yea! How hard could it be? I mean who doesn’t love dressing up?
    Putting together a fun costume doesn’t necessarily require a large financial investment; all it takes is a little creativity. After a few quick searches online and I had a pretty good idea of what was needed to pull this off.

  • It's here, you guys! It's finally here!

    Tomorrow kicks off the first ever Hello Kitty Reading Day, a celebration of Hello Kitty's 40th anniversary and the great books published around her. A lot of other publishers are playing along, including Abrams, Penguin, Perfect Square, Priddy Books, Sourcebooks, and, of course, us! Brett dished out all the details in this post a few weeks ago

  • Of course it’s awesome to dress up as your favorite book character for Halloween, but why not take things a step further and use the pages themselves to craft up an outfit? Here are seven sorta-spooky DIYs for wearing your bookish heart on your sleeve this October 31.

    They say that everything you need to write your novel is already at your fingertips; in this case, they’re 100% right! With a little newsprint and rubbing alcohol, you can cover your nails with text and make word art and nail art at the same time. Here’s how to do it:

  • Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn.” Ahem, oh hello—I was just chanting to the Yog-Sothoth, as is tradition at this time of year. Fans of HP Lovecraft and science fiction get to go nuts on Halloween; dressing up like Old Ones, holding seances, and of course, knitting cute little Cthulhu buddies.

    Right? That’s what everyone, right guys? Not just me?

    If you’ve never crocheted a Cthulhu, you’re missing out. They’re super cute and also creepy, which is probably why they’re included in Creepy Cute Crochet: Zombies, Ninjas, Robots, and More! In celebration of the best holiday of the year, we’re posting this project below. Get busy knitting or get busy phlegeth ee lloig!
