A couple of brand-new YA authors are celebrating the appearances of their first books on Amazon. Teri Brown's Read My Lips is about a deaf girl whose lip-reading ability paves her way into the popular crowd at her new school. Preorder the book here. My day job involves captioning TV for the Deaf and hearing impaired, so I'm really looking forward to reading Teri's book.
Take the Reins by 20-year-old Jessica Burkhart is set to debut in September 2008 (the Amazon date is actually incorrect). It's the first in a tween series set in a high-brow boarding school. Being horse-mad, I know I'll love the equestrian backdrop.
Congratulations, ladies! May the sales start rolling in.
