Blog Tips:

  • Make sure you keep authors happy. If you promise a review then get it done. Free books are free to you. The author still has to pay and/or makes no money from it.
  • Don’t request ARC’s until your blog is well developed. You’ll make yourself some enemies.

Melissa Walker stopped by to tell us a little bit about her new book, Lovestruck Summer.

"When I started writing LOVESTRUCK SUMMER, I knew I was going to need a ton of random, fictional band names to use in the book. I couldn't think of them all on my own, so I asked my blog readers to weigh in, and they came up with GREAT stuff! I used dozens of these fake band names in the book, and I'm so grateful. Look for them if you get a chance to read LOVESTRUCK SUMMER!" –Melissa

  2. Elise: As you can see by the sidebar (where it says Contributors) YA Blog News is very much a group project. I think I'm thanking you on behalf of everyone here for your kind comment, especially Ashley who does the most work and whose brainchild the YA Blog Newsletter was.

    So, thanks. :)
