The Best Books of 2016

By Jennifer Bowen on Friday, December 23rd, 2016 in BookHive Corp, Novels, Writing. No Comments

As we say adieu to 2016 (which many people are relieved about), I thought we could recap on some of the best books of the year- at least, according to myself and some of my well-read friends. The new year is certainly a time for new beginnings, a refresh and restart for everyone. Perhaps you’ve […]

Happy almost December, BookHivers! If you’re like me, it’s never too early to plan your holiday gift shopping. If you’re really like me, you started in September. I am a serial lender and giver of books. (Often I plan to lend books, and end up giving them instead. Looking at you, Gili Nir.) Finding a […]

Recently I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and befriending Brian Geffen, editor at Penguin Random House’s children’s division, called Philomel. He is a smart, friendly, wonderful person and was kind enough to answer some questions for BookHive. Here’s how that conversation went down: Tallie: How long have you been in publishing?

A great way to stay abreast of what’s new in the publishing world is to attend local book festivals.

Weekly (or Daily, or Hourly!) Writing Prompts

By Jennifer Bowen on Saturday, October 8th, 2016 in BookHive Corp, Novels, Writing, Young Adult. No Comments

When I first began writing regularly, I didn’t necessarily think of myself as a “writer.” I thought of myself as someone who liked to write, but never someone who would try to make a career out it it. Since then, I have written one full-length YA novel, about 17-year-old Mason Radley who develops schizophrenia when […]

I met some fine folks from AdBiblio at the San Francisco Writers Conference this year. I’m as much in a place to learn as my fellow Authors and Readers, so sat down with Mary Beth Grossman from AdBiblio which does Book advertising online.

Amazing, Weird & Hard. Writing – and letting it go.

By Jennifer Bowen on Monday, August 18th, 2014 in BookHive Corp, Novels, Research. No Comments

Writing is amazing. And weird. And hard. Maybe in that order and then scrambled again. Well, take it back. It’s amazing at first when you get an idea. Or for me it is. I always think whatever I’ve written is my last piece, truly. But then it happens again. I’m usually sparked by some external […]
