 Theme: Sourcebook authors share their favorite places to write!


 Welcome Katherine Grace Bond!

Favorite Place to Write: The Lyon’s Den coffee shop in Bothell, WA. My critique group has met here for years and I often come early or stay late and write. The shop is a favorite hangout for writers, with comfortable chairs and a friendly staff.






THE SUMMER OF NO REGRETS, a YA Novel: Brigitta, searching for Ultimate Truth, saves the life of a boy who’s a dead ringer for egotistical teen heartthrob Trent Yves. Has her secret Hollywood obsession taken over her brain? Or is there something “Luke Geoffrey” isn’t telling her?

A literary novel that explores death, the transition to adulthood, spirituality, and identity, this fresh take on summer romance will enchant fans of Sarah Dessen and Deb Caletti and capture your heart.


Katherine Grace Bond often finds herself in the woods of Washington State escaping from giant cats and shadowy figures in cloaks. The founder of TEENWrite, a live action role-playing community, where participants come as characters they create, she lives with her husband in a dimension populated by younger people, some of whom resemble her.

    Wow – We really don’t have a place like that around my neck of the woods (I live in the upper part of West Virginia). Seems like a friendly place

    We have a mall which is for young adults to hang around. It closes at 2 a.m every weekend. It’s pretty cool and cozy. The place combines outdoor and indoor. There’s a live band who performs. Then, the light is so beautiful at night.

    Live in a small town, would love them to open a place like that here. Looks like a nice place to write and hang out in.

    That place looks awesome! It’s one of the things I really miss about Boston (where I went to college) – there were tons of little coffee shops and cafes to hang out in there. I hope we get some places like it soon!

    Looks like a great place to hang out. :)

    This place looks neat. I don’t know how you can write in a place like this, I can not read in any bookstore because I would be too busy watching everyone else. I would get absolutely nothing done. :)

    I like the idea of writing from the comfort of your own bed and the cover is great.

    I would love to have a place like to to hang out in.

    Sounds like a great place. I live quaint little places like this. Not too many people, but enough for atmosphere.

    Looks like a wonderful place. I live in a rural area where there isn’t any place like that to hang out.

    I wish I had known about this contest sooner. I can’t believe I’m entering on the last day! *sigh*….
    That coffee shop reminds me of one I used to visit when I lived in New London, CT. I live in Austin now and I know there are places like that here. However I’d rather stay home and read. On my couch with my 2 kitty boys.
    Katherine, your book sounds good. I love the little bio above the ‘buy the book’ links. lol!

    what a cool place to hang out! Although I don’t drink much coffee, I can appreciate having a place to have something warm to drink while either working or hanging out with friends or both!

    There’s places for kiddos, for young teens, and for
    adults, but not many places for young adults. Those
    that are available are usually heavy duty party areas,
    not someplace quiet and calm for just hanging out!

    I have a hard time reading in a public place; I can’t even imagine trying to write in one. I would think with all the people talking and other noises it would be distracting. The place looks really nice though!

    We don’t have places like that over here, it sounds good though!
