Twitter Tuesday

Today I'm spotlighting the first two people I followed when I jumped on Twitter, Aprilynne Pike and Sarah Rees Brennan. I had the privilege of attending a writer's retreat with these two fantastic ladies in 2008. They're both creative, funny, and supportive of those in the writing industry. If you've ever had the pleasure of meeting them at a signing you know how incredibly nice either of them are. And yep, they're really that way all the time.

Both Aprilynne and Sarah's first books debuted this year. Aprilynne's book, Wings, shot immediately onto the New York Times bestseller list. It's a young adult novel about a young girl who discovers she's a fairy. Disney has since bought the movie rights. Sarah's book The Demon's Lexicon stormed the European market before landing in the U.S. It's a story about magic and demons that would no doubt make J.K. Rowling envious.

If taking the literary world by storm isn't enough reason to follow these great ladies, there's also the fact that they're, well, great ladies. Check them out. I'm sure you'll love their books, their blogs, and their twittering.

  1. I am a follower of Ms Brennan on Twitter. Looking forward to the May 2010 release of her next book. Demon's Lexicon was a great read, with an ending I didn't expect but that made it all the better!

  2. I know! Talk about a twist huh? Sarah changed the way I look at YA, in a very good way. I can't wait for the sequel!
