What about elevensies? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper? He knows about them, doesn't he?" --Pippin, THE LORD OF THE RINGS
Who are we? The Elevensies is a Live Journal community of YA and Middle Grade authors whose first books come out in 2011. It's a place to hang out, make friends and share the journey to publication with each other, with fellow writers, and with interested readers. Sharing and support are key to all we do.
Although we are not a marketing group, we will host several features on our blog aimed at sharing our stories and offering advice and inspiration to aspiring authors. We also will host two to three bigger activities throughout 2011 aimed at connecting our books with readers and supporting those who work with teens and tweens. Elevensies is opt-in and free of dues, and members participate as much or as little as they like. Mostly, we're in this to have fun and to help one another make the most of the once-in-a-lifetime debut experience.
Membership is now closed.
