TKA Authors Nominated for 2009 ALA Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults Book Awards

Accolades are in order! We are excited to share that Three TKA clients have been nominated for the 2009 ALA Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults Book Awards.

Shannon Greenland’s THE SPECIALISTS: MODEL SPY, Lynn Flewelling’s LUCK IN THE SHADOWS: NIGHTRUNNER VOLUME 1 and Linda Gerber’s S.A.S.S.: NOW AND ZEN are all up for this honor which celebrates entertaining books that have been influential in encouraging teens to read. Congrats ladies, we could not be more proud of our accomplished authors!

Recently, we were lucky to have Shannon and Linda participate in our special YA week of posts. Both of these ladies shared their insight into writing for the YA audience. If you missed out last week, be sure to check out the archived posts.

Help support ALA and encourage teen reading. Who wants to sit in front of the television all summer when there are so many great books out there just waiting to be discovered?

Be sure to check out not only the authors’ nominated titles but also their exciting new young adult releases. This spring, Shannon published THE SPECIALISTS: THE WINNING ELEMENTS, and her next book, THE SPECIALISTS: NATIVE TOUNGE, will debut this summer. Linda’s first title in a new YA mystery series, DEATH BY BIKINI, released last month, and Lynn's fourth book in the Nightrunner series, SHADOWS RETURN, is coming out on June 24th.

Share the news. Spend a summer afternoon out of the heat and at your local library. You can help put a great book in a teen’s hand! And for those who are always young at heart, like us, get one for yourself too.

Congratulations to Shannon, Lynne and Linda! Well deserved!!

Linda--funny thing...just this morning a friend called me from our local library to say that Now and Zen was offered at our library but checked out so she had to be put on the waiting list. She's ordered Finnish Line and Death By Bikini as well. *s*

Congrats to you all! The SASS series looks so fun (I do love travelling) and I just got my copy of Death by Bikini - perfect summer reading. I also can't wait to read Shannon's series and host her on my blog this summer :)
