The Fall Fourteeners Have Arrived!

Welcome from the Fall Fourteeners!

We’re a group of traditionally published YA authors (14 of us, to be exact) debuting in Fall 2014. (Okay, we fudged the definition of “Fall” a little; the first of our debuts hits the shelves in July, the last in December.) Our novels run the gamut from science fiction to historical fiction, urban fantasy to contemporary. But we’re united by a love of YA and a passion for connecting with you, our readers!

That’s why, on today's launch day--February 14, Valentine’s Day--we’re showing our readers some love by offering you a chance to win a Kindle Paperwhite! Heck, if you win, we’ll even throw in some of our personal YA favorites! These titles include: CODE NAME VERITY by Elizabeth Wein, GRACELING by Kristin Cashore, PAPER COVERS ROCK by Jenny Hubbard, DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE by Laini Taylor, and more....

(Plus, you can download our books when they come out!)

To enter, all you have to do is follow the Fall Fourteeners blog through our Rafflecopter giveaway; if you’re still feeling the love, you can earn more entries by posting a blog comment, following us on Twitter @FallFourteeners, and adding our books to your Goodreads shelf. The giveaway runs for the next seven days, so jump on it now!

 And after you’re done with that, why not check out our “14 Answers,” a monthly feature in which the Fall Fourteeners discuss our paths to publication, offer writing tips, and dish about the books we love? In today’s feature, we answer the often-asked question: “How did you find your agent?” As you’ll see when you read our answers, there’s no single (or simple) way. If there’s a question you’d like to have us answer in a future post, just let us know!

You can also find some of our favorite blogs and writing-related websites on our “14 Faves” page. We’ve all benefited from great stories and great writing advice, so we thought we’d share some of the best with you!

Fall is a magical season, full of color, mystery, change, and promise. Yes, Fall means that Winter’s just around the corner, but while Fall is in the air, there’s plenty of time to roll in a pile of leaves, visit a pumpkin patch, or harvest a crop--of great YA books! We’re thrilled to have you along on our journey, and we hope you’ll come back to visit the Fall Fourteeners often!

  1. This is a fabulous give-away! Congratulations to all 14 of you on your upcoming published books!

    I run the Chapter Book Challenge (a challenge to write the first draft of a chapter book, middle grade book or YA book in the month of March) and I was wondering if any of you would be willing to write a guest post for the challenge this March? :) chapterbookchallenge.com

    1. Hi Becky,
      This sounds interesting. Would you be interested in a post from the whole group, or only from an individual member? What subject/length/etc. are you looking for? Please email me at joshuadavidbellin@gmail.com with more info and I'll discuss this with the others!
      Thanks for asking us,
      Josh Bellin

    2. Hi Josh. I'd be happy either way. :) The whole point of the Chapter Book Challenge is to help other writers of chapter books, middle grade books and YA books in their writing journeys. I've sent an e-mail. :)
