Love YA? Visit YA Series Insiders!

martina1Today Becca and I are wandering off the beaten track of writing to hop onto the path of YA reading. We are super excited to share with you a new group forming that is sure to become a wonderful and interactive community built just for readers of Young Adult Series. Rather than blather on (and on, and on), I’m turning things over to the YA EXPERT, author Martina Boone!

Hi, Everyone! It’s Martina Boone from over at Adventures in YA Publishing. I’m thrilled that Angela and Becca have invited me to share the launch celebration for a special new blog here, because I’ve been a huge fan of The Bookshelf Muse and Angela and Becca’s thesauruses ever since I started blogging. Writers Helping Writers is such a perfect culmination for their whole philosophy. In a way, our new blog is doing the same thing from a different perspective. (YASI) is about series fiction, and it’s put together by a group of young adult authors who believe that books, and especially book series, can change hearts and form relationships with readers that last a lifetime. With that in mind, YA Series Insiders is a blog about the discovery, celebration, and shared experience of the worlds and characters of the great teen series.

While each of the eleven authors involved have young adult series starting in 2014 from major publishers, this blog is about all teen series fiction—past, present, and future. As series authors ourselves, we have a unique experience in that we can look at the books we love both as authors and readers. We also have the opportunity to reach out to the authors of these great books (or to run into them at book events), so we want to be able take advantage of that to make YA Series Insiders a place where readers and authors come together.

The Tumblr blog is launching today, 11/23/14, with interviews and lots of secrets from great series authors including:

  • Melissa de la Cruz
  • Tahereh Mafi
  • Marie Lu
  • Lauren Oliver
  • Leigh Bardugo
  • Tamora Pierce
  • Ann Aguirre
  • Beth Revis
  • Cynthia Leitich Smith
  • Nancy Holder
  • Gennifer Albin
  • Jessica Brody
  • Susan Dennard

And many, many more!

Plus we’ll keep adding new secrets about authors, characters, and books, not to mention great series news, book trailers, cover reveals and, of course, more giveaways of the hottest series books.


Angela is an international speaker and bestselling author who loves to travel, teach, empower writers, and pay-it-forward. She also enjoys dreaming up new tools and resources for One Stop For Writers, a library built to help writers elevate their storytelling.

  2. Thanks so much for having me on today, Angela and Becca! I’m so excited about this site, because we have so much wonderful content to share from other YA authors. And the giveaways all around the web for the launch are epic. But I’m also thrilled to be able to offer the giveaway of the three thesaurus books, because they have helped me so much as I work on my own writing!
