Love YA lit? Love writing fic?  Love writing fic for YA lit and wondering why there doesn’t seem to be very much for most books?

Join the YAlit100 challenge!

  • You MAY claim more than one table at a time.
  • You MAY do crossovers, fusions, and AU fic! If you intend to write crossovers and/or fusions, claim the table for the MAIN WORK (so, for example, if you want to write 100 godly-parent-fusion fics, your claim would be “Percy Jackson,” unless all 100 fics would star characters from Anna and the French Kiss or something. SOME ASPECT of all 100 fics must be constant for the book/table you choose!)
  • Fics can be ANY LENGTH. You may write 3-sentence fics, drabbles, one-shots, six-word-ficfests, whatever. The whole point is just to encourage more YA lit fic! :)

So far, there are just the first few tables up, but I will be adding my usual amount of ALL THE YA BOOKS.  :P  Join and/or Watch the
comm on LJ for updates, and make sure to suggest any book(s) that you may think I’ll miss or that you want to see sooner!

It's still a little strange for author Becca Fitzpatrick to walk into a bookstore and see her debut novel, "Hush, Hush." Not to mention the thrill of becoming a social-media star.

"Last week, one of my little sister's Facebook friends posted in her status that she was reading 'Hush, Hush,'" Fitzpatrick said. "My little sister commented back, saying, 'That's my sister's book!' When my sister shared this story with me, I couldn't stop grinning. People in Twin Falls, Idaho, are reading 'Hush, Hush.' People who don't know me are reading it. I can still walk into a bookstore, and see my book on the shelf, and feel that leap of surprise and pleasure inside."

Fitzpatrick appears with fellow author Lisa McMann on Wednesday at Barnes & Noble in Oceanside, and Thursday at Mysterious Galaxy in Clairemont Mesa, where fans will likely ask where she came up with the idea for "Hush, Hush" (Simon & Schuster, $17.99), the story of teenager Nora, whose blooming relationship with the mysterious Patch places Nora in the middle of an ancient battle. The book is in the "fallen angels" realm popular with teen readers.
