San Diego Comic-Con 2014 Recap + Giveaway

By 13 Comments

A couple weeks ago we headed to San Diego for our fourth year of exhibiting at Comic-Con. It was equal parts exciting and busy, which you probably know all too well if you’ve ever been to the show, but it was ultimately another great year of introducing Smart Pop Books to new potential readers while having the wonderful opportunity of reconnecting with past readers and contributors.

Comic-Con was the official launch of our 2014 Smart Pop Sampler, and it was such a treat to hand out copies early in the show only to hear positive feedback from readers a day or two later! If you’re feeling a little jealous of this freebie,  you can actually download a free electronic version on your e-reader of …

By 5 Comments

Thus: Editors Picks. Periodically we–and/or some of our past guest editors or book contributors–will select 3 essays we particularly love from our Smart Pop titles and offer a little commentary on why we think you’ll love them, too.

What Smart Pop book do you wish we’d make?

By 46 Comments

Even though officially Leah and I love all our Smart Pop titles equally (said in the most diplomatic voice possible), secretly we still have our favorites. Unlike parents, I think it’s okay to admit that. Leah harbors a special affection for our James Bond anthology. Even though my personal favorite property we’ve covered is Veronica Mars (I’m still torn up over it’s early cancellation, the one that happened three years ago), my favorite Smart Pop title was Coffee at Luke’s. I read the book before watching the show, and it inspired me to inhale seven seasons in just a few weeks. That’s the sign of a good book right there!

But there are also properties I wish we had done books on long ago …
