It's the Weekend - I Can Still Be Shameless!

After a massive YA author event and two birthday parties yesterday (er, attended, not thrown) I dropped the ball on Saturday Shamelessness.  But it's still the weekend, so I figure, it counts.

We've got another awards winner here in the Inkpot! Katie Carroll's YA fantasy ELIXIR BOUND took second place in the June You Gotta Read cover contest.  And you can see why.  Gorgeous!

More great reviews for Ellen Booraem’s TEXTING THE UNDERWORLD, which comes out August 15. Publishers Weekly called the story of a boy visited by a young banshee “affecting, funny, and provocative,” while The Horn Book praised it for “complex characters, a moving story line centered on family and courage, and plenty of exciting moments.” Ellen starts a three-week blog tour August 5 at The Childrens Book Review with a guest post about banshees, the Irish ancestral spirits who wail as death approaches.

And last but not least, we have a NEW INKIE BOOK coming out this week!!!!

INDELIBLE by Dawn Metcalf hits shelves JUNE 30th!!!!

You definitely want to check this one out!

That's all for this installment.  Next week, many of us will be gathering at SCBWI LA.  We'll be sure to post photos!!!!


  1. Oooh, I'll have to check out Ellen's blog tour. I love all things Irish, and especially the legends about banshees and such. Thanks for the info.

  2. I just finished Texting the Underworld yesterday--it's lots of fun!

    And I am much intrigued by Indelible...

  3. Congrats to Katie and to Ellen! And wow, I can't wait for Dawn's book! Thanks for,a great round-up, Gretchen. I wish I was going to L.A.!

  4. I'm reading Indelible now. I didn't even realize it wasn't out yet, bad me! LOL!


Have your say...
