I am so excited to be posting about this event. As you know if you follow my blog, I love YA so much. To go along with this I have always wanted to go to a book convention that is all about celebrating YA books, these mostly happen in the U.S. and as I live in the UK you can imagine how hard it is to get to one. Not anymore, the wonderful woman that is author Katie M John has decided to create "An Author, Blogger and Reader convention designed to celebrate Young Adult and New Adult stories of all genres." And I couldn't be more excited.
What you need to know?
The convention is in its BETA stage. What we know so for is it will be in 2017 in Teddington, London. I know 2017 seems so far away but between then and now there is so much work to be done and I am excited to be a part of it as an official blogger for the convention.
So far we have 5 awesome panellists signed up which include, author Carlyle Labuschagne, Patti Larsen, Bella Roccaforte, Jo Thomas and Cameo Renae.
An event like this can't run on fumes and to help this event there is currently a Go Fund Me campaign happening. The smallest amount you can help toward this event will make a difference you can check out the Go Fund Me campaign here.
If you can't donate, that's perfectly all right you can help spread the word about this event, whether that's through a blog post, a tweet on social media anything you can do to help. Just get the word out there.
I am so excited to see this convention come together over the next year , it's going to be a blast in the meantime, why not like the Facebook page here to keep up to date with the event and check out the website here
