Just like Libby Heily (who wrote this post), I’m so excited to be a part of this event! Let’s spend the month of April promoting strong female characters in YA fiction!!
I’ve had to keep this under wraps for nearly two months. For the record, I am not good at keeping secrets. I have to regularly warn friends not to tell me anything in confidence. It’s embarrassing. And yet, I’ve managed to keep this one!
I’m excited to announce that my publisher for Welcome to Sortilege Falls is hosting a series of events in April to celebrate strong female characters in young adult fiction. Strength comes in many forms. We’re not only celebrating the super girls who are able to slay dragons or defeat alien invaders (though we love them and will definitely gush over them), but also those who possess a quiet strength that often goes unnoticed: the girl who stands up for her friends, the girl who has the inner strength to walk away from a bad relationship, the confident girl who works hard to make a better life for herself.
