It’s nearly YALC time! And one of the best things about YALC? The samplers! There’s no need to be risky and buy a whole book, you can nab a free sampler and give the book a test run. Then you’re obvs going to fall in love and have to buy the book, but these things happen.
Here’s the lowdown on all the sampler-y goodness avilable at YALC this weekend:
Usborne‘s sampler is a double whammy of a sampler, on one side you have the prologue to LA Weatherly’s epic ‘Broken Sky’ (if you like what you read the book is available to buy at the Waterstones stand, and Lee will be hosting a research workshop on the Friday), and on the flip side we’re teasing an extract from a top secret (until Friday – keep your eyes peeled for more information and super cool competition!) 2017 YA release.
You’re being totally spoiled by Electric Monkey with proofs of ‘My Life Next Door’, ‘Sign of One’ and ’12 Days of Dash and Lily’ as well as ‘Front Lines’ samplers!
Hachette are shining the spotlight on ‘This Raging Light’, Ally Carter and ‘Crooked Kingdom’.
