News & Notes — 8/03/13

August 3, 2013 Stephen King, Suvudu 8

News & Notes is a weekly Saturday post featuring book- and publishing-related news, links to interesting articles and opinion pieces, giveaways on this and other blogs, and other cool stuff.

Books & Ebooks in the News:


Worth Reading:

  • “Stephen King’s Family Business”.  Apparently, writing runs in the family.  The New York Times’ Susan Dominus offers a fascinating (albeit lengthy) look at the King family, almost all of whom are published writers.  (While Stephen King is the most prolific and well-known, wife Tabitha King and sons Owen King and Joe Hill have also done quite well in the field.)

For Writers & Bloggers:

Book Announcements:

Free & Bargain books:

    Awesome lists: 

    Just for fun:  

    • 23 Lovely DIY Bookends.  From DIY Anthropologie woodland bookends to vintage phones, gold honey bears, book bricks, and even beanbags, you should find some inspiration here.

    That’s it for this week!  I’ll be on vacation for the next four weekends, so News & Notes posts will be a bit haphazard until September. 

    I’m always on the lookout for interesting articles, lists, and links for News & Notes, so please let me know if you see (or write!) anything that might be good for this feature.  You can leave me a comment or send me an email — my address is on the About/Review Policy/Contact page.

      Oh, I’m excited to see that Artemis Fowl is going to be made into a movie! And all the DIY bookends and the lists and all the other news…thank you!

        You’re welcome! I haven’t read the Artemis Fowl books yet, but my nephew loved them some years back. I’ll have to get a few out and try them before the movie comes out, don’t you think?
