YA Month - "A Book and a Chat with Sarah MacLean"

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

So what do you get if you cross the daughter of a spy with Jane Austen?

One answer might be Sarah MacLean my guest on today's "A Book and a Chat".

Sarah was one of the authors that many wanted to be included in my YA Radio Week, her book "The Season" has been one of the most popular YA novel over the last year.

During the show, Sarah shares with us, all about "The Season" and how she came about writing this YA Historical Romance novel. Rave reviews are littered around the net, and the questions put to her from both readers and fellow authors showed just how much this book is being enjoyed.

We learned during the show about not only Sarah's love of the Regency period of history, but also her knowledge of the time, which be it from the langauge, the dress of the characters just enhances this "The Season". Much to the delight of many listeners we found out that this book will spread into a Trilogy, bringing back many of the much loved characters that have appeared in this first novel.

Sarah also shared with us about her new book "Nine Rules to break when Romancing a Rake" the first of a more adult romance series due to be released in March, and already much anticipated.

With more books due hopefully throughout 2010 and into 2011 Sarah's writings are sure to please readers of all ages who enjoy a historical novel full of great characters and romance sprinkled with enough humor and mystery to keep the reader wanting to turn the pages.

As normal the show went by way to quick, an hour of entertainment covering many items that will be of interest to all ages.
