#YAieDay Oct 3rd

After the enjoyment of #UKyaDay I decided it would be fun to have one in Ireland. I invited Irish, UK, and US authors to join in. I hope it’s a good day for all involved and that it opens up the YA genre to non-YA heads.

Digital Marketing made Pretty

Sorry lads, having issues with my PC, this post was supposed to be on the YAie site but once the word gets out that’s all that matters.

When: Oct 3rd

Where: #YAieDay will be an online festival taking place on thehashtag #YAieDay on Twitter.

The authors, bloggers, and publishing peeps will be chatting about topics and having the LOLs throughout the day. Anyone can join in and chat to their favourite author.

Also, lots of very cool publishers will be holding competitions where you could win books.
