I hope you all had a wonderful start of the new school year. There's a lot of TBF news I have to share with you!
First, the TBF Read-a-thon (RAT) Fundraiser is just around the corner. The fundraising challenge this year is: $9000. If we, the readers, meet this challenge, the "godmother of TBF" (Terry Trueman takes the credit of creating this title) Stephanie Squicciarini and the rest of the TBF Committee will dress Steampunk Style at the festival. Here is all the information about RAT.
Now, I'm happy to announce more TBF authors! Here we go:
- Kami Garcia: co-author of the Caster Chronicles and author of the Legion series. That's right guys, your eyes have not deceived you. The magical duo, Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl will be together at TBF. If you've read all of four of the Caster Chronicles and miss the Caster world, have no fear, the co-authors are planning on writing a spin-off series called Dangerous Creatures. And guess when that will be out by...right on time for TBF! *Unbreakable will be released October 1 & Dangerous Creatures will hit the shelves May 6, 2014* (Food for thought: maybe you guys can wait until the RAT to buy Unbreakable. Why? So you can contribute to the fundraiser and have a fantastic book to read.Win-win for everyone!)
