Deb Sarah’s The Opposite of Me has hit the bestseller list in Italy! (Italian title: L’amore Non e Il Mio Forte.) The Dutch translation will publish in October.
Class of 2009 Debutante Katie Alender is proud to announce the title for Book 2 in the Bad Girls Don’t Die series: From Bad to Cursed. It’s due out next spring, so be sure to check it out!
Katie is also excited about the launch of AuthorMix, a web video series featuring young-adult authors getting together in a roundtable setting to just talk about anything and everything. AuthorMix will features two videos each week, a 6-9 minute discussion video each Tuesday and a short and sweet Speed Round each Friday. Viewers can win signed books by commenting, so be sure to pass it along to your friends (and it’s not just for teens–future episodes cover topics like getting published and the writing process). Series 1 guests include NY Times best-selling authors Melissa de la Cruz, Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl, as well as Cecil Castellucci (and Katie)!
