        Daniel Handler, for example, publishes adult novels and plays under his given name and children’s books under the name Lemony Snicket. There’s a lot to be said for creating a pen name that’s unique and memorable, like Lemony Snicket, Dr. Seuss, Trevanian, Mark Twain, or Woody Allen.   Hope Was Here is about a 16 year old girl who lives with her aunt - the two of them find work at the beginning of the book at a diner in Wisconsin owned by a man with leukemia. Addie is a cook, and Hope is a waitress - a really good one, too, and from the way Bauer describes waitressing, you can tell she's writing from a lot of personal experience.4/5.

        From giants, nephilim, demons, and watchers — all the way to messengers, fallen ones, and the mysteries behind the world and even the worlds above and below, The Book Of Enoch tells it all!   The name Pennywise isn't exactly a popular clown name, at least it hasn't been since King's book was released in And it's important to note that the story itself takes place in Author: Olivia Truffaut-Wong.

      I recall a book I read recently where there was a character who was routinely called by name, but every now and then -- like once a chapter -- the author would suddenly refer to him as "the redhead". The first time he did this I was totally confused, as he had never before mentioned the color of the character's hair.   When I attended my first book signing (for the Market Book series), a fellow editor advised me to cross out my name when signing copies. It's a practice I've kept up since, and I've seen other authors do it as well, but I still wonder, "Why do authors cross out name when signing book?".
