Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Being a new author

Hello world of readers, authors, editors, etc., I've always had a passion for reading and writing but throughout the last sixteen years have but the writing on the back burner.  It wasn't until I left my position at a big box store and had more time to give to my family (husband and six kids) that I also discovered time for me.  I have recently completed my first romance novel and the second and third of this series are due to be done soon.  I am looking for help with publishing my work and I'm open to suggestions.  By the way, I love Brenda Jackson and Rochelle Alers and want to thank them for some of the greatest romance I have ever read.  Congrats ladies on putting your GOD GIVEN GIFTS to a great use.

Check out the Writing Room board.  Good connections.  Good info.  A fun group.
