If you’re tired of reading black ink on a white page, or black pixels on a white screen, take a break and watch one of Quirk’s recommended movies for book lovers. We all need a break sometimes, but a break doesn’t mean you have to abandon your precious books.
Please allow me to introduce you to Tapestry--a new mobile story-telling platform that uses taps to push the story forward. It's crazy fun and completely addictive. We promise. And, the Quirk Books Channel is part of Tapestry's launch--which is happening today, like right now!
We have 6 stories that we're excited to share with you.
Philadelphians! Want to get an inside look at the work of The Resurrectionist while eating tasty food and dancing to a live DJ? Yeah, us too. Come out to Macy's in Center City this Friday, June 7th from 5-7 PM for a hometown party to celebrate the release of the book Publishers Weekly calls a "welcome addition to any library of dark fantasy."
We'll see you there! And be sure to check out Macy's awesomely creepy window display (above).
Forget love: doughnuts are the international language. And they should be celebrated! Though a holiday like “National Doughnut Day” generally implies we should only care about American ones, when it comes to doughnuts, it’s all about spreading the love far and wide. And in turn, everyone else should also share their doughnuts with us on this, our joyous holiday. It’s only fair. If you went on a doughnut expedition (or pilgrimage, depending on your feelings) around the world, what would you see and eat? Here are some of the doughy morsels you shouldn’t miss.
The Good ol' USA: Since the National Doughnut Day thing started in the USA, we should start our tour there! Head into grocery stores or actual doughnut shops to taste the wonderful fried dough in varying shapes, sizes and flavors. I personally like plain hole-in-the-middle doughnuts with plain glaze, but maybe you're the type that doesn't want holes in their pastries and prefers them to be creme-filled.
Or maybe you like bite-sized and powdered. Heck, maybe you want them chocolate-flavored with extra chocolate icing and sprinkles. Whatever your preference is, you'll find it somewhere. And you must, because, as Krispy Kreme says, you (the consumer) are "the center of the doughnut." You fill in that void. (d'aww) Feeling extra adventurous? Try a Luther Burger (that's a burger with doughnuts for buns, for the uninitatied and hungry).
