The Future of Smart Pop: We Want Your Help!

By 11 Comments

SmartPopLogoWe really enjoy reading reviews of our books, especially the ones by book bloggers (who tend to have a little more space to discuss than, say, the average Amazon reviewer); I love hearing what works and doesn’t work for different readers, especially in our anthologies, where often every review has different favorites (and different least favorites).

Recently I read a great one from Kelley at Oh, the Books on Divergent Thinking (thanks, Kelley!).

An Epic Veronica Mars Giveaway

By 45 Comments

Our giveaway has closed (scroll down for winners’ information!), but you can still win a copy of Neptune Noir from Neptune Rising through March 13! Visit here for details.

Thanks to 91,585 tried-and-true Veronica Mars fans, we’re finally getting the much-wanted next chapter in the lives of our favorite Neptune kids (well, favorite late twenty-somethings by now). The Veronica Mars movie release is just a couple weeks away!

A Girls giveaway that’s not just for girls

By 11 Comments

girls-guide-giveawayWe’re partial to all of our books here at Smart Pop, but every so often a book comes along that has a little something extra special about it. Next week, one of those extra special books will be newly available: The Unofficial Girls Guide to New York: Inside the Cafes, Clubs, and Neighborhoods of HBO’s Girls. It’s easily the prettiest book we’ve ever published, with a glossy color interior that’s chock full of illustrated maps and photos, and at an adorably petite 5 x 7 trim, it’s just the right size to slip in your purse for a trip to your favorite coffee shop, or even all the way to New York. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the interior pages!
