The second issue of the Class of 2k7 ezine is now available! In it you’ll find bios, reviews and blurbs for our authors with books debuting in April, May and June, plus an article on edgy young adult novels and other goodies!
Also, for those of you who have debut middle-grade or young-adult novels scheduled to release in 2008, here’s the scoop on the Class of 2k8!
Starting Sunday, the Class of 2k8 will be open for business.
The Class of 2k8 is a group of first-time middle grade and young adult fiction authors with debut novels to be published in 2008. This class will mostly follow the model of the successful and original Class of 2k7 (www.ClassOf2k7.com), and is sanctioned by that group.
The Class of 2k8 will be involved in a cross-publisher marketing campaign geared to put our books on the radar screen of booksellers, librarians, teachers and readers.
*You must be a first-time middle grade or young adult author
*With a novel to debut in 2008
*From an established publishing house listed in CWIM.
*You will also be required to make both a financial and time commitment.
If you’re interested in joining or in finding out more about the group, send an email request to authors@Classof2k8.com. On Sunday, April 15, we will start sending out the application forms along with a preliminary set of expectations.
Have a great Monday!
