Muse News Roundup: Two Book Releases & Donna joins Spirit of Texas Reading Program


Donna Cooner is joining authors Libba Bray, Cassandra Rose Clarke, A.G. Howard, Mark Long and Benjamin Alire Saenz as the 2014 High School Authors for the Spirit of Texas Reading Program. Authors are selected by a special committee of the Texas Library Association and will be special guests at the TLA annual convention. The program began in 2011 as a way of developing a more robust, dynamic relationship between Texas libraries and Texas authors/illustrators where authors and illustrators constantly came into Texas libraries either in person or via the internet to talk to students about their books and the writing process. The name "Spirit of Texas" was chosen because the program hopes to encourage a greater understanding of what it means to be a Texan and an appreciation for the literary works of and about Texas and Texans.

Dual Book Release Day!

The "earth-shattering conclusion" to Veronica Rossi's NEVER SKY series, INTO THE STILL BLUE, will be on bookstore shelves on January 28th, 2014.

But wait, there's more!

On the very same day, January 28th, Katy Longshore's highly-anticipated historical YA novel, MANOR OF SECRETS will also be released! It's a double whammy for the Muses!

The MANOR OF SECRETS launch party will be Saturday, January 25th at 3 pm at Avid Reader Books, 617 2nd St, Davis, CA 95616. Tel. (530) 758-4040.

Congratulations to Donna, Veronica and Katy! We're so proud of you!

Post script:

Katy's 'Tis The Season post got eight comments, so she's rounded up her donation to STEAC (Short-Term Emergency Aid Committee) in Yolo County to $20.  Thank you all so much!
