About a month ago, I invited two talented YA novelists, who have yet to see their first books published, to guest post on "Writing Teen Voice." Both agreed to participate. That made me very happy.
Each of the writers had entered book manuscripts in the 2010 Amazon.com Breakthrough Novel Contest. Ultimately, the winner of the contest in the YA and Adult novel categories will receive publication by Penguin. Many other authors who manage to become finalists will be published as a result of having written wonderful manuscripts.
Making the cut is tough. Just two days ago, the YA and Adult category entrants who made the critical second-round selection in the 2010 ABNA were announced. And I am so tickled to tell you that both visiting "Writing Teen Voice" novelists made the cut!
The guest post by Tracy Walshaw, PAPER TIGERS, appears below. Or you may click on the "Writing High School" articles list name at the lower right side of this blog page (just below the adorable adoptable pet photo) to read her guest blog.
I'll be putting up the guest post by Megan Bostic, LOCKDOWN, later today.
I just wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS to both novelists. And to thank them publicly for being so generous to guest post at my blog. THANK YOU!
