Are you excited for San Diego Comic-Con? WE ARE. We'll be at booth 1636 and would love to meet you! Drop by to say hi, talk books, and meet some of our authors!
This year, we're participating in some fun scavenger hunts — an official Buffy Scavenger Hunt where you can sign up to become a Vampire Hunt Slayer during the con, and the Baker Street Babes SherlockeDCC Scavenger Hunt, where you can follow clues and solve puzzles all over SDCC. You can win some great prizes by participating in these hunts, so make sure to join in the fun!
Oh, and of course we'll have our secret password. Whisper Quirk E. Godmother and you'll get something cool.
Follow us on Twitter for updates on panels, signings, and guest author appearances at our booth. For all giveaways, signings, and more, see the schedule below:

Let's face it. Even the most eco-conscious bookworm is sure to feel a tinge of guilt as they set out to devour the latest paperback. So, today we’re examining our reading habits – and making small adjustments that can make a big impact.

It's time for a Liam Neeson Literary Roles post, and we're fawning over every literary role he’s ever performed. As difficult as it will be, let’s forget about the Taken series for a moment (or as long as it takes for you to read this blog post) and join us for a journey into the worlds of King Arthur, Victor Hugo, C.S. Lewis, and Patrick Ness.

If you’re a fan of true crime, find a list of recommended true crime documentaries and books is just a google away. It’s a bit harder to find a list of solid fiction recommendations; books and tv shows that scratch that itch for shocking, twisty, and compelling crime drama. We at Quirk have you covered with pop culture that will keep your eyes glued to pages and screens long into the night. Shout-out to the murderinos out there – this one’s for you!

Summer blockbuster season is in full swing with great movies like Avengers: Infinity War, Incredibles 2 and Ocean's 8. But, maybe you are looking for something that isn’t so sequel heavy. Perhaps you are looking for something a little more bookish and shorter in length.
Welcome to the Quirk Books Film Festival, where we highlight five of our favorite book trailers from the past ten years. Quirk pioneered the Hollywood-style book trailer, pushing them beyond a simple ad for the book by making them compelling standalone pieces that tell a story. And, these trailers are sure to delight and surprise with their CGI effects, intense action sequences, suspenseful build-ups and pop-culture touch points.
Break out your popcorn and happy viewing!

We’ve all done it. A friend will mention their excitement about the Tom Hanks helmed Mr. Rogers movie that’s in preproduction and our mind immediately puts Tom Cruise in that signature cardigan. Or we read about the new Top Gun sequel and can’t picture anyone but America’s Dad playing the role. Today we’re putting our mental mixup to the test, imagining Tom Hanks in Tom Cruise roles – and vice versa.
