Websites!

So Let’s talk about young adult author websites.

Whose sites are out there that you think are super cool?

Meg Cabot’s site is really awesome and one of my faves. It's hip, it's bright and fun, with loads of information on her books.

On a YA website, I like excerpts, basic book info, maybe a little behind the scenes and characters…

I want to know what you like--please share!

What do you like in an YA author’s website, and which are your faves?

Okay, so I know this is totally biased, but I am still so in love with my website. I love all the sites that my designer, Denise Biondo creates. They are so fun and really individual!

I adore Steph's, as well (love how you enter through a locker), and Kelly, just the other day, I was perusing yours (www.kellyparra.com) and thinking how much I like your monthly newsletter and how you keep your pics up-to-date!

I adore Megan Mccafferty's Retroblog, and I have enough journals myself that I may cop that idea soon... giving her credit, of course!

I'm totally in love with Melissa Marr's blog. She talks about her books, her writing experiences, and also interesting tidbits about her tours. Plus she posted AMAZING pics of Ireland. I also like Libba Bray's website and Sarah Dessen's too. I really like it when an author highlights their upcoming books - even if it's months in advance. :-)

Oh, I forgot to mention Elizabeth Scott's website. She does a really good job of posting info about her upcoming books. :-)

Ooh, I do love Simone Elkeles' site. It's so, so adorable! Jenny Myerhoff's has an elegant, girly feel.
