Lauren Shippen has one heck of a resume. Not only is she a master storyteller and well known for her work in fiction podcasts, she was named one of Forbes 2018 “30 Under 30” in Media. She’s also the creator and sole writer of the popular audio drama The Bright Sessions, which ran for four seasons! Following the success of the podcast, Shippen decided to take her imagined universe to page and created The Bright Sessions book series. We were thrilled to help Tor Teen spread the word about A Neon Darkness, the second novel in the series!

We stand in solidarity with the black community against racism, injustice, and inequity. We all must stand up, demand change, and speak the inarguable truth that Black Lives Matter. We have so much work to do, and books are a good place to start – to educate ourselves and others, and to support and amplify Black voices, as well as Black-owned businesses. Below are some helpful links we wanted to share.
Summer is nearly here and I can’t wait to be near water again. I love everything about it – swimming laps, jumping into the ocean, kayaking down rivers – you name it! (except lakes. there’s just something about swimming in lakes that creeps me out!). Author Bonnie Tsui points out that humans, unlike other animals that are drawn to water, are not natural-born swimmers. We must be taught. Why? And why do we love it so much? Her new book, Why We Swim, takes a deep dive into this and so much more. We were thrilled to help Algonquin Books promote this unforgettable “love letter to water.”
They say don’t judge a book by its cover. But when I first laid eyes on Crissy Van Meter’s novel Creatures, I was completely entranced with the lush underwater world I saw. And the story inside is just as mesmerizing as the creatures on the outside. We were thrilled to help Algonquin Books reach fiction enthusiasts for Van Meter’s debut!
Find the heir, win the crown. Win the crown, save the kingdom.
There’s something about an epic YA fantasy that is so addicting that I end up never leaving my bed and reading ALL weekend. The Cursebreaker Series from Brigid Kemmerer is no exception. And the fact that it’s a classic fairy tale retelling of Beauty and the Beast makes it even better! We were so excited to help Bloomsbury spread the word for the second book in the series, A Heart so Fierce and Broken.
Every once in a while, we are extra thrilled to advertise a book, not only because we love what we do, but because the story is one that needs to be shared. Mighty Justice is one of those stories. The memoir’s author, Dovey Johnson Roundtree, courageously fought for justice all her life, up until her death in 2018. And though her accomplishments were monumental, her name remains largely unknown. Mighty Justice, from Algonquin Books, brings her moving and important story to light.
