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:

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!

Ivy Noelle Weir started her bookish career at nineteen years old, when a reference librarian at the local library caught her crying in an alleyway after learning that the coffee shop where she worked was going to be abruptly shut down. He offered her a job as a circulation clerk, and what started as a part-time way to pay the bills turned into an award-winning career in librarianship and eventually, a Master’s Degree in library science. Ivy also holds a degree in art history, helps to manage The Valkyries and Valkyries Valhalla (two international organizations of female nerd professionals with over 800 combined members), speaks at events and conferences nationwide about comics and pop culture, and just celebrated the release of her first graphic novel, Archival Quality (about a haunted library, of course). Since coming to Quirk’s publicity and marketing department in 2016, she has worked with librarians, bloggers, and comic con attendees to spread the word about Quirk titles.
