‘Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.’ – Groucho Marx


I can barely contain my excitement because it is only THREE SLEEPS until we announce the winners of the 2018 INKY AWARDS!!

Who do you want to win? Is there a book that didn’t make the shortlist that you wish could swoop in and snatch the trophy? If you could ask the authors one thing, what would it be? Let me know in the comments! Especially that last one, we’ll be having a Q&A with some of the authors at the Awards Ceremony and we might need some help picking top-notch questions to ask them.

What is everyone doing for the school holidays? Reading lots? Writing lots? We’d love to see more book reviews and creative writing on the site, so please post ALL THE THINGS. Remember, we’re giving away some Inky long-listed books to one lucky person who shares their creative writing on the site. Just post some writing and use the tag ‘prompts’ to be in the running. We will be drawing the winner on Monday 8 October.

Not sure what to write about? Check out some of the great content that other people are posting every day! Poppy keeps us all inspired with her Just A Quote blog. Sylvs is tearing through her TBR pile, writing amazing reviews every week! Check out her latest work, a review of Radio SilenceAnd if you’re looking for a great YA event to head along to, Tanzeem has written a handy post about all the panels they’ll be speaking on as part of YA Con on Saturday 6 October. If you’re going to the conference why not drop in and say hello!

Oh, and one last thing…


In case you missed my post yesterday, this site will be live to the public as of Tuesday 2 October. We are so excited to have heaps of new users and heaps of new content on the site as of next week. Keep an eye out for new competitions, new online programs and, of course, new online friends!
