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 (Weeds, for one) and properties I still secretly hope we cover one day. Unfortunately, just because a show is loved and well-watched doesn’t mean readers will line up to buy a book about it.
It’s all such a complicated book-making dance!
Regardless, we genuinely love to hear what property you want to read more about it, so here’s your chance:
What property would you like to see us make the focus of an upcoming Smart Pop book? Long-loved TV show? Book series you re-read once a year? A movie subject you go to conventions for? Nothing’s off limits! We’re excited to hear what you come up with.
(And although we can’t promise you’ll actually get to read a book on the topic one day, speaking up is definitely the first step!)
