Last year there were the Elevensies, a group of debut Middle Grade and Young Adult authors, which included the wonderful Beth Revis (Across the Universe), and Veronica Roth (Divergent). In 2012 we have the Apocalypsies, a group of debut authors whose first books are being released this year. For me, there’s nothing better than discovering a new author who you can look forward to reading for years to come. I’ve been excitedly reading about all the amazing books that the Apocalypsies are releasing this year and I can’t wait to fill my head with them. I’ve already read my first Apocalypsy book, Cinder by Marissa Meyer, and you can read my review here.
In the coming weeks I’ll be featuring guest posts by some of these great new authors, including Marissa Burt (Storybound), Leanna Renee Hieber (Darker Still), Lynne Kelly (Chained) and Elizabeth Norris (Unravelled). They’ll tell us all about their books and when we can expect to get our hands on them. The great thing about social networking is that you can find them on Facebook, Twitter and their own website so you can ask them all about their books and their writing.
