Let's git dis pah-ty stah-ted!

We've talked about it, had a vision for it... didn't know where to go from there. I guess the easiest thing is to start with what we already have and let it grow.  I'm a terrible blogger on my own. Just don't know that I've got much to say that anyone would really be interested in reading. But if this blog has a goal and a plan, then I can go with it. So, I'm "officially" opening this blog up to all writers or anyone interested in young adult fiction. You write for teens, you read teen books, you're involved in mentoring teens or you're a teen pastor... you're welcome here! But we will focus on writing-related topics. Not just techniques, but also brief online critiques (like, send us your novel pitches!), fun writing exercises, guest bloggers and interviews (agents, editors, authors, ministers), occasional giveaways, topical discussions, publishing news, and whatever else seems interesting and fun.

I'm going to start us off with a giveaway!

Listen up, y'all! You can win somethin'!

We need more followers! So for the rest of this month (November, 2010) all new followers will be entered into a drawing to win a copy of From the Inside Out: Discover... Create... and Publish the Novel in You, an excellent workbook by Susan May Warren and Rachel Hauck. Also, anyone who leaves a comment will be entered.

So tell your friends, send out the link, and let's get this party started!
