YA Month - "A Book and a Chat with Kristi - Story Siren"

January is YA Radio month on A Book and a Chat, with special guest throughout the month, not only authors but bloggers as well.

As we move into the second half of my YA Radio month I am very pleased to have a return visit to the show by one of my favorite YA Bloggers. My guest on today's YA MONTH - "A Book and a Chat" is Kristi, author of the very popular "The Story Siren" blog.

as normal when Kristi is a guest on the program we chatted about numerous different aspects of YA literature, from some of the great authors and books both from 2009 and looking forward to in 2010, to bloggers who are actually writing books themselves.

Interestingly Kristi raised the issue of the lack of true trilogies that are coming out these days, and I'm sure she'll be sharing her views on this subject on her blog pages very shortly.

We chatted about some of guests that have been on the show so far this month and those still to appear on "A Book and Chat". As always Kristi was only to willing to help and answer questions put to her, as well as sharing with the listeners about her "2010 Debut Author Challenge".

As normal the show went by way to quickly, covering many items that will be of interest to all.
