Novels, News and Notes is a brand new blog and is run by a few different bloggers like me, Candace, who blogs at Candace's Book Blog. And Mel who blogs at Shot in the Arm. Sara from Novel Novice has helped with the header and author list. We have a few other contributors as well and you can find them in the 'About' section.
Novels, News and Notes From Your Northwest Neighbors is a blog that specializes in young adult authors from the Pacific Northwest area. We feature them in reviews, interviews, guest posts and with giveaways. We also cover book events in the Pacific Northwest and have put together a book club for book lovers from the area to meet up. While we specialize in authors from the Pacific Northwest, we do have content that most any reader of YA will enjoy. So whether you live in this area or not I do hope you'll follow our blog and stop by frequently! If you live in the Pacific NW and would like to be a contributor there's a link to sign up at the top of the blog, we'd love to have you! Our blog is also not quite complete. We're still working on our author list and we'll have a complete design in a few weeks.
We do not have a GFC, but please subscribe by email or RSS (on the right sidebar) and/or follow us on twitter @novelsnewsPNW.
You can also find me on twitter @candacemom2two and Mel at @shiploadofwilco

This weeks question:
Summer Break is upon us! What would be the perfect vacation spot for you to catch up on your reading & relax?
Candace: I would love to just hang out in the woods. My in laws have a hammock that's nice to lay in and is definitely in the woods. But I'm so paranoid about a bear or cougar sneaking up on me that I can't really relax cause I'm so freaked out about it. It would be really cool to go to a beach (not our beach, it's too cold on the North Pacific) and lay out and read. Though I tend to be too distracted looking at the gorgeous scenery...
Mel: I would love to go back to Florida. I love hot summer days and I love sitting or laying on the beach reading books. I could spend days like that. I'd also want to jump in the ocean occasionally to cool down and then have a glass of lemonade....
