#YABkLove Day 9: Sci-Fi

#YABkLove Day 9

Deep space, time travel, the future, or maybe just dystopia. What makes you think of Science Fiction?

This isn’t a genre I partake in very often, and when I do it tends to be “light” science fiction. I don’t do “hard” science fiction, maybe because I don’t do science at all. I’m not a fan of a ton of scientific detail in my fiction, however I know others love it.

So which do you prefer? What is some YA Sci-Fi that stands out? Personally, I think the genre has gained a lot of ground, not just in the dystopian field but beyond that and into more varied Sci-Fi as of late.

Here are some of my picks:

#YaBkLove Help Still Needed!

July is just around the corner and that means that we will be starting #YaBkLove soon! As you can see from the graphic below, we are still in need of prompts. Some excellent ones have already been suggested to get people talking, but we would love to hear some more ideas for what kind of topics you think would get people sharing their favorite Young Adult titles. Don’t be afraid to toss out something that might generate something obscure. You can reply here or on Twitter. Share these posts and, of course, join us on July 1!

It’s Here! My First Publication!

The first ever short story I wrote and, now, my first ever publication went live today! Its a sort of YA/Horror thing. 

Katie waved to her boyfriend, Jake, trying to signal him to get his car out from in view of the house. He had the headlights turned off, but there was still a chance of her parents hearing the engine or looking out to see the late model sedan. She fit the key in the lock and attempted to open the back door as quietly as possible.
