TIME DRAWS NIGH…SO VERY SOON the Teen Read Week begins–13-19 October and the Blog Hop begins on Monday, the 14th of October. This is an excellent week for teens of all ages (12-18) to come over to several sites specifically set up for them to discover and learn about authors and the books that are written with them in mind. Whether an avid reader…or one that is rather reluctant, this week is for them–both in local libraries and on the internet, as the week is sure to kick off with many things to do.
The sites are: YALSA’s Teen Read Week: Seek the Unknown and Greta Burrough’s Inspiring Teens Blog Hop. There will be links for all of the books and authors and the bloggers’ sites that are involved in this event, plus contests where you can vie for booty (books & swag) at the Blog Hop all week long. Libraries in your area will have events, readings, etc going on–make sure you check in with your local library to see what’s happening!
I will be hosting Sharon Ledwith, author of The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis and its prequel, The Legend of the Last Timekeepers on Tuesday, 15 October! I am excited about this event, as I have already read the Last Timekeepers and am reading the prequel now. They are good books. If you like science fiction fantasy, whether a young adult or child at heart, I think you will enjoy these books.
On Saturday, 19 October–the final day of the Teen Read Week and the Inspiring Teens Blog Hop, I will be hosted as an author by blogger (and author) Donna Dillion, where I will talk about Secrets Beyond Scymaria, a little bit about the upcoming books (book two and three) in the series and reveal a little bit about the characters, plus have giveaways for copies of the book.
Please make sure you make your way over to both sites the week of 13-19 October. Don’t miss out! It will be fun.
