News Day and the Top 20

Super proud of two lovely ladies from the Go Teen Writers community. First:

Walks Alone by Sandi Rog is available digitally, or you can preorder a print copy. Jordan Newhouse made the dress that "Anna" wears on the cover! How cool is that??? You can find more pictures of the dress here on Jordan's blog.

Also, yesterday Rachel Coker began guest blogging on Go Teen Writers. I saw on her blog that Interrupted was reviewed by Publisher's Weekly which is a huge deal. Especially because their review was so positive. Way to go, Rachel! You can find more details on Rachel's blog.
