I’ve had a convergence of spectacular bad luck lately, stuff designed to keep me off balance and wondering what day it is. So I completely forgot to send out a WU-HOO to YA author, editor extroidanaire and WU contributor Victoria Holmes on the recent release of not one but two books in her phenomenally successful YA series, WARRIORS. THE POWER OF THREE, BOOK 1 and THE LOST WARRIOR hit the bookshelves last week. Next week, I fully expect to break the news that WARRIORS has displaced Magic Treehouse and Septimus Heap on the NYT Children’s Series book list.
Vicky would have told you herself, but she’s been wandering around selected major metropolitan areas in the U.S. for booksignings. Our last e-mail from her relayed some typically self-deprecating humor about a ‘few kids’ showing up to meet Erin Hunter. Don’t let that fool you, she’s been mobbed where ever she’s gone. She’s going to give us the details as soon as she’s safely home in the U.K., well-rested, and recovered from her puddle jump.
