Can you believe our 7 year birthday is coming? Seriously, March 1, we are 7 years old! Watch for posts throughout the month of authors we featured in the past. They will be sharing 7 Things We Don't Know or giving a speedy update on their writing.
But now, I'm posting to make a quote call. Let's See It, Say It. Take your favorite quote from YA lit, snap a pic of the page, or write the quote out and take a pic, or design something awesome over at Polyvore. However you like, get it visual and post it on our Facebook page. Authors, draw from your own works and others; readers share the best bits from the books you heart; and librarians, teachers, and booksellers, jump on in.
Our beloved Ellen Hopkins has done this for awhile:
Here's one from co-founder Dia Calhoun:
And here's another from co-founder Justina Chen:
Here's one from me which I put together on Polyvore:
So you get the idea right? Okay! Find those quotes and get them onto our Facebook page. We'll make an album and cull some for the blog as well. Thanks for celebrating with us! Happy early birthday, rgz! xox
We at readergirlz are assessing and redirecting. Active divas Micol, Melissa, and I have decided on a few tweaks as we rewrite and prepare for our own book releases. Micol's is tomorrow! Family premieres tomorrow!
Back to the point. Here's what you can look forward to:
* The blog will be your point of reference for Cover Stories, industry newsflashes, HOST reports from across the country, as well as Street Team, SALON, and Diva reviews of great YA lit.
* Like our Facebook page to stay up to the the minute on all things rgz. We hope to pull awesome posts from the wall as blog posts! So keep us informed of what you are doing/reading, and we'll let you know if everyone's headed to Twitter for a chat!
* Watch for at least two literacy initiatives a year, like the massively successful Rock the Drop!
So that's the scoop for your rgz 4.0. We are psyched and hope you are as well. Drop any questions or thoughts in the comments then read, reflect, and reach out!
As we get ready to change to our new format, I wanted to reflect on how we came to be, remember what we've done together, and just pause to appreciate our journey. I made this for all of you. Thank you for being a part of rgz. Thanks for the lemonade. :~)
