From the website:
The Class of 2k7 is a group of first-time children’s and YA authors with debut books coming out in 2007. We’re helping to promote each other’s books with this joint Class of 2k7 website as well as a collective blog, newsletter, forum, chatroom, and brochure. Our 36 authors hail from 20 states and D.C. representing a range of genres and publishers.
We’re just getting started, but there’s already been a great deal of enthusiasm about the idea. And you might get to meet some of us during one of our 2007 regional tours, where cooperative book signings and workshops will bring more attention than any one of us could hope for alone. I look forward to hearing your ideas on how we can make the Class of 2k7 even better and leave a legacy for those who come after us in the Classes of 2k8, 2k9, and beyond. Thanks!
Very cool, don’t you think? It’s awesome that these authors are all supporting each other, and they have some great books coming out! Check out the YA section of the site. I can’t wait to read these books!
