Who's Gonna Sit in the Hot Seat?

Recently, while answering some author interview questions, it
occurred to me that it might be fun to "turn the table" and interview an interviewer. I mean, everyone likes to share thoughts and opinions, right?

From there, my mind ran to a YA Fresh blog series...interviewing our readers. With that in mind, I created four categories:

1: YA book reviewer
2: YA librarian
3: Middle school or high school teacher
4: Middle school or high school student

Between now and Friday, July 11, I'll checking my mailboxes
( and for
volunteers. If you are interested in being interviewed and you fit into one of these four categories, e-mail me with contact information and the most applicable category. I will "accept" the first volunteer from each category. Four total. Then I will then e-mail those people the list of questions, and post the interviews here.

Sound good? I think so!

So hurry up and e-mail me so it can be YOU!

Thanks, Bria!

We now have our librarian.

So we only need a teen who reads...could it be that all of them are still asleep since they stayed up so late...reading?!?

I'll bite for the Librarian spot, even though I'm not technically a YA Librarian, I do some YA purchasing.

I sent you an email just now for the YA book reviewer interview. I don't know if the spot is already taken but I thought I'd try anyway, lol.
