Mr. Gaiman, have you ever written a story you weren't excited about because you knew it would sell or receive positive reviews?

I’m hard to get excited about things. And I am very aware that a novel that takes 18 months to write is going to have days when you’re excited and days when it’s a grind and days when you wish you had a proper job that didn’t involve putting words down on paper.

I always think something’s a good idea when I decide to do it, though. And I try to remember that on the grind days.

My stars. I’ll try to remember this.

You don’t have to sell your soul for a good book — well, not in the Teen Room, at any rate. 

We do take coffee, though.  And crullers.

Mmm…crullers.

MuggleNet Blog Book Review: If You’re Reading This by Trent Reedy
If You’re Reading This by Trent Reedy is a rare breed of YA novel: one written for young men. The novel follows sixteen-year-old Mike, whose family is barely making ends meet seven years after the death of his father fighting in Afghanistan. When he least expects it, he begins receiving letters written to him by his father before his death.

An entire generation has grown up often missing their loved ones who were deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan. They have grown up under the difficult demands of service and sacrifice, and they deserve to know why. My new novel IF YOU’RE READING THIS is released today. It’s my best attempt…

Happy Book Birthday!!

"This summer, the Islesford Historical Museum on Little Cranberry Island is hosting an exhibition about Bryan’s life and 70-year career as a painter, poet, children’s book illustrator and puppet maker. The exhibition, “A Visit with Ashley Bryan,” is on view through Sept. 20. It encompasses Bryan’s array of creative expression.

It also serves as a precursor to what friends and family hope will be a permanent study center dedicated not just to Bryan’s art, but his approach to life, which his friends describe as joyful and absent of cynicism.”

—Bob Keyes, Author and Illustrator Ashley Bryan comes of age
