120 YA authors blog at Simon & Schuster’s BlogFest until March 27th

Many wonderful teen authors are over at Simon & Schuster’s BlogFest, creating a sort of blog, answering 14 reader questions (that have already been chosen), one question a day, from now until March 27th. 120 teen authors will be featured. Covering yesterday and today, check out Annette Curtis Klause on bringing fictional characters to life; Judy Blume, Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, Sonya Sones, E. R. Frank, Rachel Cohn, AVI, and Melvin Burgess on if they hadn’t been writers; and many, many more.

This isn’t a real blog, though the idea is clearly drawn from blogs; you can comment on what the authors say, but they will not answer any questions (aside from the questions that have already been chosen), and only some authors will be commenting on the comments, or comments in general…. Still, this is an interesting event.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
