Two Opportunities for Author Interaction

I thought that the young adult fiction fans among you might be interested in two announcements regarding author visit/chat opportunities. First up, an announcement from BookDivas (edited to remove one paragraph).

"Wouldn't you love to attend an author visit with E. Lockhart? Well, to promote her new book Dramarama, she will be the guest of the Book Divas. 

The leading online book club for young adults and college readers, Book Divas welcomes E. Lockhart to host a virtual author visit July 15th, 2007 until July 22nd, 2007. This will be Lockhart’s second time promoting a upcoming book on the site and this time members of Book Divas will get to chat with her exclusively for an entire week...

Lockhart will login to the message board every day for a week, where she will answer questions, read comments and discuss her newest novel, Dramarama. Members will be allowed to personally speak with Lockhart by signing in and leaving messages for the YA author."

Next, the Readergirlz live chat for the month.

"Join readergirlz for our live chat with Goy Crazy author Melissa Schorr on Thursday, July 26th at 7 p.m. Pacific / 10 p.m. Eastern

Let's talk about The Dramedy of Dating: Come share your most tragic and comic and moments in romance - especially summer romance. Have you ever:

Dated a "bad boy," even though your parents didn’t approve?

Dated someone from a different faith or background?

Successfully turned a boy "friend" into a "boyfriend?"

Melissa has! Come join us and spill your stories!"

The Amazon links are mine in both of the above. Hope that you find this author visit information useful.
