INTERNET, I have an exciting announcement to make! Remember this post, that I made four days ago?

I will give you a moment to be shocked at the fact that there has only been four days between this post and the last one.


But anyway, remember that and how I alluded to something called… THE CONTEMPS?

WELL. The Contemps went live yesterday!!!!

Celebrate realistic YA with The Contemps!

I am so excited to tell you about The Contemps, not only as a member OF The Contemps, but as someone who loves loves loves contemporary realistic YA fiction. (By the way, I would’ve told you about it when it went live yesterday, but would you believe this blog entry has taken me 24 hours to write? That’s because this announcement is THAT EPIC.)

The Contemps is a stellar group of 21 YA authors (including Brent Crawford, Lisa Schroeder, Elizabeth Scott, Kirsten Hubbard, Kody Keplinger, Hannah Harrington, Jo Knowles, Mindi Scott, Melissa Walker, Daisy Whitney and Michael Northrop to name just a few) with contemporary novels releasing over the course of the year. We are COMPLETELY dedicated to spreading the word about and spotlighting realistic YA fiction. And not only spotlighting those stories, but sharing our own. So you definitely want to keep your eye on us. But where to look? WELL, just so you know:


And that’s just for starters!

And did I mention The Contemps Challenge? If you accept The Contemps Challenge and promise to read at least 18 of the 21 upcoming Contemps books, you will have a chance to WIN ALL 21 OF OUR BOOKS. Pretty sweet, huh? Go here for deets.

So CHECK IT, people. Just check it. I don’t even know how you got this far down in my blog entry because you should’ve clicked away to The Contemps website by now.

But if you stuck around, well.

First pass pages for Fall for Anything came in the mail! I took some pictures to tease you with. Look at this sexy title page!

And oh my God is that the first page AND first line of Fall For Anything?! If it’s not, then it’s a page doing a good impression of it!

It’s a book!

Now get thee to The Contemps’ website!
