I am so excited about this new endeavor that a team of Florida-based young adult authors are doing and I’m a part of. We’ve created a Facebook page for teens, media specialists, librarians, teachers, and anyone who loves literacy to keep tabs on all of our:
· New books
Our goal is to reach out to our readers and support our community in any way that we can in order to get our communities and schools excited about reading, writing, and YA literature.
Our Hot YA Reads Facebook page can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/HotYAReads.
A big shout out to Hafsah at IceyBooks for creating our stunning logo. Not only did she nail the concept we wanted to portray, but she was quick and helpful.
I hope you’ll check us out and be a supporter with us in promoting literacy, not only in Florida, but around the world.
