Kate {The Parchment Girl}

Looks like a terrific panel! I can't wait to see which books they choose.


Can't wait to start reading and getting to know the other panelists! Told the baby girl it's time she learns to make her own bottle anyway:)

Melissa Wiley

I'm honored to be in such excellent company. Looking forward to this!

Jackie Parker

That's hilarious, Ami!

Paul Rogers

With all due respect, why are you using such a dreadful broken courier type font?

On a 'writing' site at that.

The Brain Lair

This is going to be so much fun!!!


Have to agree with Paul above -- this is a funky font that seems hard to read. My daughter is going to LOVE this panel -- am going to send her the link. She loves YA, though she's graduated from college already. She still spends quite a bit of time in that genre (and, as a college grad with homework behind her, loves that she has more time to read!). Yes, she still picks up her beloved Harry Potter, but definitely looks into other things as well. Book she's reading now (and liking a great deal): A Wind in Montana by Mitch Davies -- http://www.pensmithbooks.com -- She says it's more real than a lot of the genre, without being about a completely dysfunctional families. One of the things she commented specifically on was about the idea that most high school relationships don't last and you need to prepare yourself for that eventuality, or else you could be in for a hard crash. We tried to tell her that at the time, but of course she didn't listen! And the crash was hard. She said if kids read about it happening to other kids, instead of their parents telling them about it, it makes a difference.


What books are they considering? I think Principle Destiny by David A. Cleinman should be on the list. Its great.

Sheila Ruth
