We told you we are psyched to celebrate YA all month long. And now the seventeen authors taking part in September's Smart Chicks Kick It book tour have given us another reason to cheer. This month some of the most popular YA authors will participate in a two-week book tour that's not just cross-country but cross continent! And the authors headlining the tour have put together an AWESOME giveaway for RT readers at the end of the post.
The Smart Chicks Kick It all twelve stops, YA heavy-hitters Melissa Marr, Alyson Noel, and Kelley Armstrong. Each of these authors has penned a phenomenal paranormal YA series. And whether you fell in love with Marr's faeries, can't get enough of Noel's Immortals, or Armstrong's genetically enhanced teens, the authors will be sure to delight.
And these authors are bringing their friends! Joining them for various stops along the way are fourteen of our other favorite voices from the genre, including Melissa de la Cruz, Jeri Smith-Ready, Carrie Ryan and more. You can check out the complete line up of authors here.
The action begins on the September 13th in Austin, Texas. The tour will then speed through the U.S. making stops in Mississippi, Arizona, California and Ohio before wrapping up on the 25th in Ontario, Canada. You can get a complete list of the Smart Chicks Kick It tour dates and stops here.
If they won't be stopping by your neck of the woods, you can still follow all the action on the RT Daily Blog. You can follow the authors virtually as they discuss their different stops, post pictures and more.
