AuthorsNow! website

Here is a very cool new website that I want to share with you. I've copied their information below:

AuthorsNow! is a collaboration of debut children’s book authors and illustrators who are the fresh and emerging voices in children’s and young adult literature today. Created with the parent, teacher, librarian and bookseller in mind, AuthorsNow! is a one-stop-shop to learn about all of our authors and illustrators. Here you’ll be able to …

  • get up-to-date descriptions of forthcoming books
  • read the latest on our authors
  • download supplemental resources such as teaching guides, quizzes, and other materials
  • book an author or author panel for your school, library or organization
  • participate in contests and giveaways
  • find out about debut author events
  • and much, much more.

We’ll also be serving up a fresh cup of content on a regular basis related to children’s literature and what’s happening in the field today.

Our authors range from picture book authors to teen novelists, fiction and nonfiction alike, and all are published by major trade publishers in the United States.

New talent is in town! Learn about what’s hitting the shelves in children’s and teen literature today from our debut authors and illustrators. Not only will you find information about our books, but we’ll also point you to other popular groups, web sites, blogs, and communities who love children’s books as much as we do! So grab a cup of coffee and pull up a chair as we discuss what’s happening with AuthorsNow!…

Sounds like a good idea. Some of these groups are really helpful and some aren't. Hope this one will be.

And Cheryl - I checked the link and it works. It might have been that the site was down at the time.
