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.

Ian's Plotting Basics -- Writing Exercise

Thriller – ‘Joe Blow’

Joe loads his pants with his famous ‘sock gun’ for the job.

Joe meets Natasha at the bar – gets his flirt on.

Natasha eludes Joe’s assassination attempt and in his haste to escape is captured by a rival organization.

Natasha realizes that Joe has absconded with her microchip. She risks everything to rescue him.

Joe and Natasha run away to Minsk where they are married. They honeymoon in Prague and as they kiss at the hotel room window, we see them through a sniper’s scope.

Cheers,
Ian
