2 A Sad Day for Adventures In YA Publishing

Dear Readers,

It has been my great pleasure to be part of Adventures in YA Publishing for nearly a decade. That makes it doubly sad for me to have to say that the AYAP team is going to have to scale back even further on what we can bring you each week.

Unless we are able to find a new team member able to devote 10 to 12 hours per week to take on the management, interview, and giveaway side of AYAP, or someone who wants to step in and shape the site to their own vision, Shelly, Halli, and I will only be able to continue posting descriptions and covers for the books coming out that week and perhaps an occasional craft post.

We have been so honored to have an incredible group of authors and bloggers joining together to support the YA community over the decade. If you know anyone who would like to carry the torch in the years to come, please ask them to email us at

With great regret,

Martina and the AYAP Team


  1. Ah, this is sad! This blog has been a great part of my own writing journey, and I thank ALL OF YOU for your contributions and hard work over the years. I hope you can find someone who has the time, energy, and zest for this position. Hugs!

  2. So sorry to hear this! I'll definitely spread the word. Hoping you can find someone who's the perfect fit. Thanks for all you've done for the YA community!


Tell us what you think. We'd love to hear from you! :)
