At Comic-Con last week, we completely sold out of our booth copies of Lucy Knisley's upcoming travellogue, An Age of License! For those of you who weren’t able to snag a copy then, here is a peek inside Knisley’s latest memoir. More photos and video to come soon, and the book is due to land on bookstore shelves and at our warehouse in September.

Until then, grab a croissant, sip an espresso, and keep your eyes peeled for further updates on the Flog! An Age of License is also on presale, so you can reserve your copy now.

Ooh, sneaky peek! Hm. This book seems to be full of food and cats and lanky boys. 

Also, it has a starred review on Publisher’s Weekly!

Big news! In one week we’ll be holding the first-ever books.tumblr.com cover reveal! Check back next Monday, August 4, for the exclusive debut of the cover for Nova Ren Suma’s new YA novel The Walls Around Us. 
We’re hearing lots of great buzz about this new one from the author of Imaginary Girls and 17 & Gone. It’s a ghostly story of suspense involving a young dancer and a girls’ juvenile detention center—just think of it as “Orange Is the New Black Swan.”

This book, y’all. The summer before 2nd grade, just before I became a big sister. I begged my mom to buy it for me at Kroger. She did at the bargain price of $1.99. I felt SO BIG reading a longer chapter book. It’s the first book I remember feeling passionate about. And here it still is: covered in mustard stains from where I wouldn’t put it down at dinner, a Lisa Frank sticker on the inside of the cover, yellowing, dog-eared, loved.

chuckpalahniuk:

It’s okay to be scared.  I was terrified of everything — still am.  But tune out media for a while.  It wasn’t until I shed television for ten years that I seemed to calm down and fuse my education with my experience and learn the skill of writing.  Everything I thought would destroy me ( huge terminal mistakes ) forced me to write and gave me a new life.

totallyalero said: How did you turn a short story into a novel? To me, it seems like an impossible thing to do. To pick up a pen and write a short story is one thing--but to pick up a pen and turn a short story into a full-length piece of work? How did you do it? How do you find the bravery to do that?

chuckpalahniuk:

Consider that a short story typically shows one event.  You might be able to extrapolate the preceding and seceding events from the original story.  Or the story can eventually act as a flashback within a longer piece.  Or, check out the original story version of “Story of My Life” published in Esquire.  Then, read the novel and you’ll see how extra details were added to build the story into the novel.

chuckpalahniuk:

From your lips to the ears of 20th Century Fox.  I’d love to spin the story into the future and the past and build a real Stephen King-George Lucas mythology around the culture and characters.  My thanks to Dark Horse for giving me so much support and leeway. 

Chuck P, answering your questions live from Comic-Con!
