Take the Contemps Challenge! Sign Up Before Nov. 15th!

Celebrate realistic YA with The Contemps!

I signed up this past week for the Contemps Challenge and wanted to spread the word to you! 

The Contemps is a group of YA authors dedicated to producing solid, contemporary young adult fiction.  They define themselves as, "a group of YA authors with contemporary novels releasing over the course of a year. We are passionate about realistic fiction because these are the books that remind us we're not alone in this real world. Our mission is simple - to spotlight contemporary fiction for young adults through blog posts, author events, and (over)sharing from our teen years."

As much as I love my paranormal fiction, sometimes I feel overwhelmed by the shear amount of it out there.  Groups like this remind that there are other books, and these are stories that can happen or have happened in our own lives. 

***DISCLAIMER: that's not to say that I would object to an incredibly sexy vampire or werewolf dropping into my world, but is that really likely?

Okay, back to the real world. 

The challenge: promise to read at least 18 of the 21 upcoming Contemps books between now and August 15, 2011. One lucky challenger will win the grand prize: ALL 21 of our books! That's like a whole bookshelf of books!

If you would like join me in challenge, go The Contemps page and learn more about how to sign up and get involved.  They will post information about upcoming contests and other things you will want to shrae with your followers. 

The Contemps are asking that interested challengers sign up by November 15, 2010.

P.S. The list o' books for the challenge?  Looks amazing!
