There has been some seriously exciting news in the realms of Australian YA fiction this week and I just wanted to share these with you:
♥ The sequel to one of my 2010 favourites, This is Shyness, is being published in February 2012. Queen of the Night picks up six months after the events of the first book, and I am so excited to revisit Wildgirl and Wolfboy. Also, isn't the cover stunning?
♥ Gabrielle Williams, author of another favourite Beatle Meets Destiny, has her second novel entitled The Reluctant Hallelujah publishing in early 2012.
♥ Super, super awesome news: Hardie Grant Egmont is developing a new YA fiction collection. Ampersand is going to be a collection of contemporary teen fiction by first-time novellists, and they are currently looking for manuscripts. Publishing in early 2013, I am already psyched for this project!
♥ I'm also really looking forward to attending the Publishers' Showcase at the Centre for Youth Literature in a few weeks.
