Several months ago, I became a contributor to YA Outside the Lines, a great blog for those who love young adult fiction. I realize I've been remiss by not announcing that affiliation in a noisy way on my blog.
A big reason I signed on was Holly Schindler, a terrific YA author (A Blue So Dark, Playing Hurt) who I'm honored to count as a friend. But there really are scads of terrific authors on YAOTL, including, but by no means limited to: Lauren Bjorkman, Brian Katcher, Stephanie Kuehnert, Wendy Delsol, Julie Chibarro, the aforementioned Holly... I could go on for a long time, but better, I think, if you go check for yourself.
I'm also pleased to say that one of my favorite debut authors, Jenny Torres Sanchez (The Downside of Being Charley) has just joined the team. You may not know who she is (yet) but you owe it to yourself to find out.
We each post monthly. If you are a fan of YA fiction, I hope you'll give YA Outside the Lines a try.
