UKYA Extravaganza


September 6, 2015 by Lydia Syson

wXpiauM-_biggerI’m not sure if it sounds more like a circus or a speed-dating event for authors and readers, but I am absolutely certain that the second ever UKYA Extravaganza on October 2015 is going to be a sell out. If you live anywhere near Nottingham and want to come, do book as soon as you can. These events are all about bringing YA authors to fans outside London – read here about the first one, which took place in Birmingham in February this year – and were dreamt up by the indefatigable fellow authors Kerry Drewery (A Brighter Fear and A Dream of Lights) and Emma Pass (Acid, The Fearless). Everyone can join in during the run up thanks to the UKYAX Blog Tour.  I’m so pleased to be paired up with award-winning Michelle ‘Chelley’ Toy (UKYABA Champion Newcomer 2015) of TALES OF YESTERDAY (very appropriately!) and we’re putting our heads together for a surprise on September 18th. Find out which authors will be waiting to meet you in Nottingham below, and buy tickets from  Waterstones in Nottingham (or book by phone) tomorrow from 9 o’clock onwards….
