Want to be a part of YA Stands??

YA Stands is looking for writers and readers of YA who are willing to post once or twice a month. From controversial issues to book reviews to conducting interviews with industry professionals. 


Post your qualifications/interests in the comments below and I'll be in touch with you!


  1. Great! Can't wait to see who joins!

  2. Getting a group together is a really good idea. I know I can hardly find time to blog sometimes!

  3. My favorite thing to talk about is religion.

  4. I'd be interested, for sure. I read a lot of YA and also write YA. You can check out my Goodreads account here:

    I have a whole shelf dedicated to YA, a lot with reviews, and the whole part about controvertial issues greatly intrigues me.

    As for interests, pretty much every type of YA is enjoyable, though the dreaded love triangle is wearing on me greatly.

  5. Krista, YAY! Contact me through email and we'll set something up! Excited to meet you!


  6. I'd definitely be interested. Under the name Jo Ramsey, I write YA urban fantasy (I have two series underway) and contemporary. Four of my urban fantasies have been published, with two more under contract, and I have a contemporary under contract as well.

    The controversy lately, especially the YA Saves thing, is something big for me, because I've worked in public schools and know what teenagers can go through and how books can help.

    I have my own website, including blog, at, and I have Goodreads and Amazon Author Central accounts (when I can remember my passwords...)

  7. Jo, we would love for you to join us! Contact me through my email: nicolesteinhaus(at)aol(dot)com so I can talk to you more about it!

  8. This sounds awesome. I found your request on Absolute Write, and I'd love to join!

    I write urban fantasy YA and will read just about anything YA--especially urban fantasy and dystopian.

  9. Grace, contact me through email (in comments above). I would love for you to join the team!!
