Reel YA Wants YOU!

There's a lot of talk about the "YA community" around the blogosphere. 

Writers connect with each other through different means, whether it's a group blog (like right here at Operation Awesome), or a book review blog (like Afterglow Book Reviews, where several bloggers gush about their fave books). I l-o-v-e seeing people connect and discuss their passions with one another. I also love seeing writers/bloggers get together on behalf of great causes, like Read For Relief, which kicks off today (Katrina wrote a fabulous post on that here). 

To me, the best part about blogging is you. I can write posts about anything, and they'll still appear online, but hearing from y'all? Priceless.

That's why I'm here today to extend an invitation! You see, I have two big loves in my life: YA books (duh...) and teen movies. And I found a way to join the two--Reel YAThis new blog will feature lots of posts on (super awesome) YA books and films, as well as YA author/book blogger interviews and contests, BUT it will also feature your voice. 

Head over to Reel YA and find out how you can be a part of it! 

Because, let's face it, doing something alone is scary. Without the YA community, I'd be nowhere. :)
