See the trailer for Jessica Shirvington's 'Endless' -- EXCLUSIVE

Endless, the fourth and penultimate book in Jessica Shirvington’s Embrace series, hits U.S. shelves Oct. 1. It’s a fun, action-packed series that hasn’t received a ton of attention, but it’s highly addictive and perfect for YA fans. (Hence my slight obsession.) Here, we’ve got the exclusive first look at the trailer: “I have been a huge fan of all of the trailers that have been produced in the U.S, but this one especially sends a shiver up my spine,” says Shirvington. “I think it captures so much of the feeling of the book—not an easy thing to do in under a minute!” Check out the video after the jump, and then read on for a chat with Shirvington about the book and the conclusion of her Embrace series. Warning: minor spoilers ahead! READ FULL STORY

HarperCollins announces Oz-inspired series 'Dorothy Must Die' -- EXCLUSIVE

Dorothy-Must-Die.jpg

More than a century after L. Frank Baum’s novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the Emerald City continues to shine brightly in pop culture. Debut novelist Danielle Paige signed a three-book and three-digital novella deal with HarperCollins. The series will start with Dorothy Must Die, described as “The Wizard of Oz meets Kill Bill“, in April 2014. In this re-imagining, a twister rips through Kansas and transports Amy Gumm — most likely inspired by Judy Garland’s birth name Frances Gumm — into Oz, which has been transformed under Dorothy’s tyrannical misrule. In a complete twist from the original, Amy must steal the Scarecrow’s brain, remove the Tin Woodman’s heart, and take the Lion’s courage. And ultimately — destroy Dorothy. READ FULL STORY

Greg 'The Room' Sestero's 'Disaster Artist' memoir -- EXCLUSIVE TRAILER

Disaster-artist.jpg

What do you do when you’ve appeared in one of the worst films ever made? Why, write a book about it, of course!

Okay, so that’s not what usually happens. But there is very little which could be considered “usual” about the infamous, so-bad-it’s-amazing 2003 film The Room, one of whose stars, Greg Sestero (“Oh, hi Mark!”), has now penned a book called The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made. Published by Simon & Schuster on Oct. 1 and cowritten with noted pop culture scribe Tom Bissell, the tome tracks Sestero’s involvement with The Room and his friendship with the film’s prime creative force-cum-onscreen love machine, the mercurial Tommy Wiseau.

Is it tearing you apart that you have to wait a couple of weeks before getting your hands on a copy? Then feel free to check out the trailer for The Disaster Artist below.

Drawings of 'Breaking Bad' characters as ghosts by Doogie Horner -- EXCLUSIVE

I am the one who..haunts?

Comedian, writer and designer Doogie Horner, who reinterpreted the spooky icon as different pop culture characters in 100 Ghosts, his book of drawings, has created a series of new ones just for Breaking Bad. Horner explores these ghosts for characters both dead and alive on the hit drama and even makes Heisenberg look downright innocent as a hovering white sheet.

“Why are people afraid of ghosts? I think it’s because ghosts say ‘boo,’ and people are afraid of criticism, but also because ghosts live in graveyards and are sometimes filled with spiders,” Horner writes in his introduction to 100 Ghosts. “But ghosts are just dead people, and most people are nice.” Just not Walter White, of course.
