For every book we release, we'll be sure to post a review of it during the week before the book comes out. If you would like to be able to provide book reviews for Thinklings, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Today is our third book, The Disposable's, publication day (no joke)! Our review comes from Kerry C. Nicholls.
If you’re like us, you’ve been feeling the need more than ever, lately, to get lost in a good book and forget our chaotic world for a while. Looking for some recommendations? We’ve compiled a list of ten excellent, humorous, lighthearted books that are perfect for escaping into!
Hello, Sarah Awa here again. You may know me as the bubbly social media lady, writer of werewolf novels, and purveyor of puns. My right brain LOVES those parts of my job! But my co-equal left brain needs its share of exercise too, which is why I also enjoy proofreading—getting to analyze and work with details. The concrete as well as the abstract.
I hate white noise. No, honestly, I do. White noise machines to me might as well be grumbling obscenities to themselves. I mean, why would you choose to listen to that?
(Because we’re all different, etc., etc., not my point.)
Every time we release a book, we’ll post an interview with its author during the month before the book is published. Our next book comes out on April 1st, appropriately, because it's a comedy! The Disposable is a hilarious parody of epic quest novels, and we are interviewing Katherine Vick, our first UK author!
I read Michael Crichton’s Timeline back when I was in eighth or ninth grade. At the time, I was really into the quantum physics theory of parallel universes—to the extent that I plowed through some articles that were really beyond my comprehension. And by “plowed through,” I mean read slowly and repeatedly until I could force myself to understand them.
Thinklings Books was originally started as a writing group. We three founders knew that writing, especially in the day of social media disconnect, was a lonely career. In addition to the solitude, writers (unlike companies with many—or even a few—employees) don’t have other people’s skills and strengths to fall back on when our own don’t suffice.
This week we decided to have some speculative fun and talk about which houses we would be sorted into if we were students at Hogwarts.
In case you’re not familiar with Harry Potter, each house at Hogwarts (the school for wizards that Harry attends) comprises students with certain characteristics in common.
My name is Christopher Light, and I’m in charge of acquisitions here at Thinklings Books. Unlike the Bosses, my background isn’t in fiction writing or in editing, but in literary criticism—you know, the field in which clever nastiness is lauded for its hilarity.
One of my least favorite things about myself—which I’m working to fix—is that I get overwhelmed easily. I look at all the tasks I’ve been assigned, take in the big picture, and freak out. My brain says, “You must do ALL of this NOW.” I know that isn’t true, but that doesn’t stop the visceral reaction.
