Booklist: Class of 2k7

November 16th, 2007 (05:15 am)
Current Song: Far Away by Duncan Sheik

"The Class of 2k7 is a group of first-time children's and YA authors with debut books coming out in 2007. We're helping to promote each other's books with this joint Class of 2k7 website as well as a collective blog, newsletter, forum, chatroom, and brochure. Our authors hail from 20 states and D.C. representing an extensive range of genres and publishers."

I salute this project. It is not the work of one certain publishing house or publicity firm, but rather the authors themselves, who come from all different backgrounds and publishers.

If a title is bold, then I've read it. Click on a title for my book review. Click on an author's name for an interview.

Thanks for the shout out. One thing I love about the 2K7 initiative is, it's further proof that writing communities are very open and supportive forums.

Another grazie, Little Willow! Maybe at the end of the year we can give you a retrospective on whether 2k7 was a good idea or merely a lot of fun!
