It's an exciting time to be part of the UKYA community. For years, the YA market has been dominated by US titles, but now we're really starting to see a great body of work emerge from UK authors.  These novels are are often set on British soil or have British protagonists. They reflect the diversity that exists within our island society and every single genre is represented - from SF through to contemporary.  Finally, we don't have to rely on imports for our YA fix, we can find homegrown literature right here - if we know where to look for it.

And that's where Project UKYA comes in. Established by Lucy Powrie, blogger at Queen of Contemporary, the blog is dedicated to promoting UKYA authors via reviews, features and vlogs.  You can find out more about it by clickling on the logo below:

There's also a monthly Twitter chat that can be found at #ukyachat where you can get a chance to hook up with your favourite writers and also find out about the regular events that Lucy's planning on holding. I can't wait to find out what she has in store!
