Which authors are hitting up YALC this year? Here’s what we know so far…

It might be half a year away, but we no longer care: YALC rumours are already beginning. Safe to say, our cool has been lost and we don’t know the meaning of the word chill. IS IT JULY YET?

Obviously, the organisers have tried to be super sneaky about their author list, but we get twitchy at the mere mention of it:

But a few authors have dropped a few hints of their own. For example, the King of Creepy himself, Darren Shan, has ever so coyly suggested he may be making an appearance:

And Keris Stainton, known not only for her fab books, such as ‘Counting Stars’, but her prolific use of Harry Styles gifs, is 100% in:

Derek Landy, author of bestselling ‘Skulduggery Pleasant’ and now ‘Demon Road’, is planning on turning up, too. Well, “probably” and at this point, that’s good enough for us. See you there, Derek!

We’re already prepping our copies and Sharpies to haul over to London – how about you? Ridiculously excited about YALC or biding your time? Let us know @maximumpopbooks.
