New Leaf Literary & Media is excited to announce a Young Adult author panel and book signing at Powell’s Books in Beaverton, Oregon.

We're calling it:

Get Seduced by YA This Spring

The event will take place at 7 P.M. on April 17, 2013 and will feature the following authors:

 - Mindee Arnett

 - Leigh Bardugo

 - Lisa Derochers

 - Sarah Fine

 - Kristin Halbrook

 - Kody Keplinger

 - Ingrid Paulson

All of these books feature a to-die for romance. Come and swoon with us!

The paperback edition of Losing It by Cora Carmack is out today!

True the ebook has been out for several months now, but I'm so excited that Losing It is in stores. This means my mom and sister and my friends who don't have e-readers will now be able to enjoy it.

I've said it before, but Losing It made me a fan of New Adult. It's fun and well written and swoony and laugh out loud hilarious at times. And I can't wait for Cora's next book Faking It to be out. (The first draft kept me up until almost 4 am on a Friday night a few weeks ago).

I'm pretty sure there was something in the water this week...

I had 221 queries in my inbox.

I requested 11 manuscripts.

YA Contemporary
Urban Fantasy
Science Fiction
Romantic Suspense
LGBT Fiction
YA Paranormal
MG Steampunk
MG Contemporary
YA Science Fiction
YA Fantasy
New Adult Romance

I loved the concept, but not the pages of 2 manuscripts.

Women's Fiction

And at 2:56 pm I'm finished!
