So, remember last week when I mentioned having a fun announcement this week? It’s time to share! And the title of this post is a pretty big clue.

I’ve been invited to join the crew of the YA Buccaneers!


What does that mean? Well, the YA Buccaneers are a group of Young Adult writers who formed a blog together: YABuccaneers.com. Each month, the crew shares book reviews, author interviews, writing tips, book giveaways, and so much more! I’m thrilled to be able to join this cool team of ladies—er, I mean, fearsome pirate wenches.

I’ll be blogging on the site as:

Bonny Kitty Cutlass 2Dread Pirate Kathryn

Go HERE to read the post announcing the new YA Buccaneers (including me). Then, check YABuccaneers.com tomorrow for my official new crew member interview on the site! (I’ll add the link into this post, as well.) All you need to know about tomorrow’s interview is…it involves a kraken. ‘Nuff said, right?

[[UPDATE 12/11: HERE is my new crew member interview! Enjoy.]]

I’ve been lucky to get to know so many awesome YA (and Middle Grade) writers in 2013, and I can’t wait to keep building my community through YAB. Writing can be such a solitary pursuit, and it helps so much to have other people in the same boat (har, har) to share in the excitement and anxiety and frustration and joy—and every emotion in between. So go check out YABuccaneers.com! You won’t regret it.
