If you follow me on Twitter, then you may have heard me mention the super secret project that I’m planning. I’ve kept things under tight wraps, until now when I’m going to reveal what it’s all about!
I’ve been working this week to get as many authors as possible on board and now that I’ve reached the number of people that make the super secret project able to happen, I can finally start getting other people on board.
So… Drum roll please!
The super secret project is going to be a blog tour full of guest posts, giveaways and interviews from UKYA authors, lasting the whole month of November. In that month, I’ll be staging Twitter chats and lots of fun little events within it. There are some very awesome authors signed up and I’ve spent this week dancing around my house every time I get an email.
I have over thirty authors signed up, with blogger emails being sent out anytime soon. I still haven’t had replies to all the emails, so I’m hoping I’ll get even more people on board.
Here is the tour banner, and I’ll be creating more for sidebars when I have all of the dates sorted out. Your sidebars will all be very pretty when I’ve finished with you!
I can’t wait to share more details with you soon, because this is a project I’m so enthusiastic about. Getting more people to read UKYA is something I’m very passionate about and I know all of the authors on the tour have amazing books.
Tell me your thoughts below! Are you looking forward to November?
