It’s not every day your first novel gets promoted on national television. We ask Edan Lepucki about her debut "California" and what it was like getting caught in the middle of the Amazon vs. Hachette struggle. http://ow.ly/z02AV

June Melby's summers, like summers for a lot of us, were idyllic as a child. Unlike a lot of us, though, she investigates that feeling, and her family's old mini golf course, in her new memoir 'My Family and Other Hazards.' We ask her about it. http://ow.ly/yYyq6

“There’s a tremendous difference between a religious novel and a novel that is about religion,” Scott Cheshire explains as we talk to him about his new novel 'High as the Horses' Bridles'. Cheshire was raised as a Jehovah's Witness; his protagonist wrestles with faith.

Though her picture-book and fiction oeuvres are extensive and varied, kid's writer Candace Fleming has made a name for herself in the world of long-form nonfiction with her works of American history. Such titles as 'Our Eleanor,' 'The Great and Only Barnum' and 'Ben Franklin’s Almanac' have become fixtures, and in this context, 'The Family Romanov: Murder, Rebellion, and the Fall of Imperial Russia' is quite a departure. http://ow.ly/yUweu

"Ferocious. If you had to ask me for a single word to describe Walter Dean Myers, that would be it: ferocious," writes Vicky Smith, Kirkus' children's & teen editor. "Many who knew Walter might find that unlikely, even bizarre. Walter was a soft-spoken man and a witty one—certainly not one given to intemperate speech. But the first time I met him, I was struck by his ferocity."

World War I changed the world as we knew it, and has continued to figure prominently in literature over the past century, including the romance genre. Bobbi Dumas takes a look at favorite books that capture both the tragedy and romance of the Great War. http://ow.ly/z1jFw

Might the Declaration of Independence, and indeed many of the earlier, if less exalted, manifestos that fanned the American Revolution, harbor coded meanings? We ask Matthew Stewart about the "radical philosophical ideas" at the heart of the Revolution. http://ow.ly/z01O8

Life isn't always madcap and fun, so what happens when things go horribly wrong between you and your BFF? “If you’ve had a best friend—if you’ve ever had a non-romantic relationship be at the center of your life, and have maybe struggled with that person, struggled to stay friends with someone who you deeply, deeply love—this is the book,” says Gould about her debut novel, 'Friendship'. http://ow.ly/yKX2I
