A Family Affair: Online Chat & Book Giveaway with Lauren Baratz-Logsted & Greg Logsted on Thursday, March 19th @ 9pm ET

This Thursday we are hosting authors Lauren Baratz-Logsted and Greg Logsted in the TKA chat room. This amazing husband and wife team joined forces with their 8 year old daughter, Jackie, to co-author THE SISTERS EIGHT, a delightful series that follows the adventures of 8 year old octuplets as they search for their lost parents and along the way discover that they each possess a magical talent. The tween series premiered last December with ANNIE'S ADVENTURES and DURINDA'S DANGERS (Houghton Mifflin). The next book, GEORGIA'S GREATNESS will be released March 23rd. During the chat, we will give away a copy of ANNIE'S ADVENTURES, signed by all three authors, as well as an autographed copy of Greg Logsted's SOMETHING HAPPENED!

Lauren is an accomplished author with more than a dozen books for both teens and adults under her belt. Her YA books include ME, IN BETWEEN, SECRETS OF MY SUBURBAN LIFE and the upcoming CRAZY BEAUTIFUL (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, September 2009), a modern re-telling of Beauty & The Beast starring a boy with hooks for hands who meets the girl of his dreams on the first day of school. Greg recently released his debut YA novel SOMETHING HAPPENED (Simon & Schuster, November 2008) and his sophmore effort ALIBI JUNIOR HIGH (Simon & Schuster) will be released this June.

This amazing family of writers has a lot of advice to share about writing for the YA audience. Don't miss out on the opportunity to pick their brains on topics such as the latest trends in the market or how to promote books to teens!

An open communication is most important most especially when you are away from your family. Good thing there's voice chat. You can talk and giggle with them as much as you like.
