Via Writing and Illustrating comes word that Egmont is closing its doors at the end of January, leaving their authors to fend for themselves.
I can only imagine the emotional turmoil these writers are going through right now.
I’m a sucker for fairy tale retellings and stories with mythological and/or literary hooks, so I’ve ordered Ilsa Bick’s White Space and The Dickens Mirror, Valiant by Sarah McGuire, as well as The Shadow Prince and The Eternity Key by Bree Despain. I’m certain these aren’t the only enticing books on the list. Browse through it and show these writers some love.
As Bree Despain remarked on the Writing and Illustrating blog, purchasing these books isn’t the only way to show them love. Reviewing the books on Amazon and Goodreads or simply ordering copies of the book from your local library are all helpful activities too. If you have a blog, you can spread the word about the last list or sign up to participate in the Last List Blog Hop. (You’ll be asked to review a book on your blog.)
In that light — here’s the complete list from Egmont. Most, if not all, are young adult or children’s titles.
4/28 – Valiant by Sarah McGuire
