UKYA FORTNIGHT: Bye, bye UKYA Fortnight!

I’m so sad that it’s the end of my UKYA fortnight! It’s been a huge hit, and it’s most likely that I’ll be hosting another one next year. Every comment, retweet and pageview has really affected me and I feel so much love towards you guys right now.I’d like to thank everyone who tweeted the links to the post or retweeted. The buzz on Twitter

 is something that has completely blown my mind because I never expected anything like it.

The UKYA Twitter chat was amazing and I loved chatting with you all.

 Because of the success, I will be hosting another one at the end of August. I’m planning it at the moment and there are some very awesome things up ahead. If you like the Queen of Contemporary Facebook page, then you’ll stay updated because I’ve begun to post a lot more there now.

I have a full write up of the event over at the UKYA blog. Thanks for having me, Keris!
If there’s anything you’d like to chat about in particular, then I’m always open to new ideas so do send me a tweet or email!

I’d like to also thank all of the authors and bloggers that participated. I wouldn’t have been able to do this without you. Virtual cookies will be sent around!

I have lots of exciting UKYA things in the works at the moment and also monthly chats. If one person has picked up a UKYA book as a result of this week then I’ll be a very happy person indeed.

THANK YOU everyone! You’re all very special people!

    WHAT?! It’s over already?! Nooooo! Are you sure..? I can’t believe it’s been two weeks already… this doesn’t seem right..

    Can’t wait for next year! It has been so much fun – thank YOU, Lucy! You’ve made me realise how important UKYA is and how we should support it more 🙂 You’re amazing and it’s such an achievement that you have put on something as big as this. Congrats on the success! 😀

    Congrats on your fortnight! I haven’t read all the posts yet, but the ones I have were awesome! Such great blogger/author posts, and I really enjoyed the chat. Will be trying to remember to sort my shelves this weekend for UKYA 🙂
