I Have A Blog Partner!

Hi everyone! I have an exciting announcement today. Natalie Aquirre, who you're sure to have seen in the comments of this blog and others, is joining Literary Rambles as my new blog partner! Natalie has been a long-time supporter and I'm thrilled she'll finally have a place in the blogosphere for people to visit and hear what she has to say. Natalie has some AWESOME stuff lined up for you guys, and I think this is a complete #win for everyone.

Natalie wrote up a quick intro just for the occasion. Here she is!

Hi everyone. I’m so happy to be joining Casey! Almost as excited as if I’d just gotten an agent. Seriously, I’ve had a big grin on my face the whole month of February just thinking about it.

I’m a middle grade and YA fantasy writer. I’ll be blogging on Mondays starting March 21st and will tell you more about myself and what I plan to blog about then. Hint: there will book giveaways.

I have a special interview coming up this Friday, March 11th. I’m interviewing Cheryl Klein, a senior editor at the Arthur A. Levine imprint of Scholastic. We’ll be discussing her new book, Second Sight: An Editor's Talks on Writing, Revising, and Publishing Books for Children or Young Adults. And I’ll be giving away a copy of her book. Hope to see you then. And thanks Casey for letting me join as your blog partner.


Yay, Natalie! Everyone, please join me in welcoming Natalie to Lit Rambles and make sure you come back Friday for her interview with Cheryl Klein. I've had a sneak peak and it's fabulous!
