I was in the Gutter Bookshop in Dalkey today and found A Crack in Everything in a proud position as part of their Christmas recommendations for teens. So now they have signed copies. And I have a lovely photo.
In some rather smashing company too.
And on Twitter there is now a hashtag for all things YA in Ireland – #YAIE and an account @– thanks to Michelle Moloney King, Maria O’Sullivan and Claire Hennessy.
Can’t wait for it.
Join us for the inaugural Twitter chat – next Wed (Dec 17), 7.30-8.30pm. Topic: ‘Irish books I wish were written when I was a YA’.
Just a quick headsup to let people know that I’ll be doing a twitter live chat with YALitChat tomorrow at 3pm EST (which is handily 8pm GMT over here). I’ll be talking about The Treachery of Beautiful Things and we’ll also be having a give away. There may even be a surprise (fingers crossed). So look out of the #yalitchat hastag on twitter tomorrow afternoon/evening.
And YALitChat will continue on into the evening/middle of the night when at 9pm EST (which… no, I don’t want to think about what time that is over here — I will be snoring, sorry!) many many more 2012 debut authors will be having another chat.
- Brigid Kemmerer author of Elemental
- Nina Berry author of Otherkin
- Kate Walton author of Cracked
- Suzanne Lazear author of Innoent Darkness
- Jessica Shirvington author of Embrace
- Elisa Ludwig author of Pretty Crooked
- Jolene Perry author of Night Sky and Knee Deep
- Lori Ann Duffy author of Spectral
- Rachael Harris author of My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century
- Tiffany Schmidt author of Send me A Sign
But at 3pm/8pm it’s all me and Treachery (which is occassionally called #TTOBT).
More on the hopedfor surprise as soon as I can!
