YA Fresh’s Series Finale.

Amazingly, it’s been seven years since I launched YA Fresh in December 2006. A month later, I asked my awesome critique partner and good friend, Tina Ferraro, to join me as we celebrated the releases of our young adult novels.
Why not start a YA blog to chat about YA books, giveaways, and just have fun with it?
Have Fun, we did!!
Hundreds of interviews and giveaways, and lots of fun chats with readers and bloggers.
Now here we are today with less YA Fresh readers to chat with and few entries for our giveaways.
Tina and I have decided to close YAF’s doors in December 2013.
We can think of YA Fresh as a book blog series that has run its final seventh season and this is our Series Finale!
Thank you for seven years of visits and chats. Thank you for sharing your favorite young adult and middle grade reads with us.
Thank you for taking the time to visit each day, and of course, we will miss you!
You can always find Tina on her Facebook page or Twitter or contact her on her website. You can chat with me on Facebook, Twitter, or contact me through Kellyparra.com.
Keep reading, writing, and having fun, YA Freshers!
