UK YA Day is about celebrating homegrown YA fiction in a popular genre where many readers turn to US writers for their teen fiction fix. Nothing wrong with that - we all love the great YA fiction that's been coming out of the States in recent years!
But YA writers like myself also want to give a great big shout-out to all the fantastic British authors working in the Young Adult fiction field.
So today, check out some YA fiction from UK authors - try UKYA and Project UKYA for some preliminary ideas and names - and see what all the fuss is about!
Here are two of mine ...
|WITCHSTRUCK: A teen witch is servant to the imprisoned Princess Elizabeth Tudor|
|WITCHFALL: Teen witch Meg Lytton learns to summon spirits with Tudor conjuror John Dee|
