NEWS: In which I inform you about random book-related things #1

Hi. So here's a post with random things I've failed to inform you about earlier. Sorry 'bout that.

Summer's Crossing by Julie Kagawa, which is a free novella set in the Iron Fey series is available for download (for free! WOO FREE THINGS!) at the HarlequinTeen website.

Summer's Crossing by Julie Kagawa

A Midsummer's Nightmare?
Robin Goodfellow. Puck. Summer Court prankster, King Oberon's right hand, bane of many a faery queen's existence—and secret friend to Prince Ash of the Winter Court. Until one girl's death came between them, and another girl stole both their hearts.

Now Ash has granted one favor too many and someone's come to collect, forcing the prince to a place he cannot go without Puck's help—into the heart of the Summer Court. And Puck faces the ultimate choice—betray Ash and possibly win the girl they both love, or help his former friend turned bitter enemy pull off a deception that no true faery prankster could possibly resist.

An ebook exclusive novella from Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series.

There was also a YA Buzz Panel at the expo, where five editors talked about one of their favourite YA fall-releases. I SO wish I would've been there! But Michelle posted a a video on her blog that she found on Publisher's Marketplace of the entire panel which you can see here.
