Every odd Tuesday (because Tuesdays aren't odd enough), I feature a different young adult fiction author YOU should know - from best-sellers to debuts. And what better way to do this than asking them TWO fun questions. Short, sweet, and sassy - just the way I like interviews.
Today I'm featuring Sarah Tregay, author of Love and Leftovers, a novel in verse that received great reviews like:
Debut author groups such as the Class of 2k are wonderful in many ways. First, there’s the marketing side of things. For example, we worked together to promote everyone’s titles to independent bookstores, schools, and librarians. Both the Class of 2K12 and the Apocalypsies put together in-person events the week of Book Expo America. These were opportunities that I wouldn’t have had if I were on my own. But more importantly, there’s the immense amount of support on a personal level. Everyone in the group is going through the same stresses—edits, deadlines, and second book jitters—so they understand and can offer suggestions and emotional support. I am really glad that I joined a debut author group and I would encourage others to do the same.
