League of Extraordinary Writers

A group of dystopian novelists have come together to create the coolest blog: League of Extraordinary Writers.

The five writers include:
Beth Revis- Her sci fi, Across the Universe, is coming out in Spring 2011 from Razorbill.
Julia Karr- Her title is XVI, about a society that forces couple to get together on their "sex"-tenth birthday.
Angie Smibert- Her novel, Memento Nora, is about a world where people elect to erase bad memories.
Jeff Hirsch- His debut, The Long Walk Home, is set after the apocalypse.

Cool books huh?

And you know what's even cooler? They're having a rocking contest. Stolen from their blog:

This month, we're giving away a SIGNED copy of Rick Yancey's MONTRUMOLOGIST (did I mention it won the Printz Honor?) and a SIGNED copy of Carrie Ryan's THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH and signed bookmarks by PJ Hoover and Maria Snyder and a signed magnet by Stacey Jay! Monsters and magic and zombies, oh my!

So go check it out!

Thanks for blogging about it, Christy!

I am SO excited about it!

(And whoops! I misspelled Angie's book--it's titled MEMENTO NORA.)

Beth- It is exciting! I fixed her title. Sorry Angie!

I just found out about this. So exciting (both for us readers and for them as writers).

Thanks for sharing, Christina!

I'll stop by. I've been meaning to read dystopian books. I have some on my wish list and TBR pile at home, but I haven't gotten to them yet.
