YAOTL'ers in the Wild

We interrupt our regularly scheduled blog posts for this breaking news: YAOTL'ers have been spotted in the wild!

As you may or may not know, my day job is with a Very Large Bookseller as the childrens/teens lead bookseller. Recently I set up this "Our Staff Recommends" table, that you will notice is quite YAOTL-heavy.

Side 1, front row, L-R: Nelson, Julia Karr, Kelly, LK Madigan, Cupala, Omololu
Side 1, back row, L-R: Bjorkman, Ferrer, Libby, Clement-Moore, Dia Reeves, Whitman (I'm sorry about the shine!)

Side 2, front row, L-R: Echols, Mindi Scott, O'Connell, Echols, Blythe Woolston, Strasnick, Joseph
Side 2, back row, L-R: Strasnick, Steve Brezenoff, Delsol, A.S. King, Henry, Herbsmann

I ran out of space and I had Stephanie Kuehnert's books on my last "Our Staff Recommends" table, so if you don't see your book, please don't think it was on purpose. The table is permanent and fluid, and I plant to feature ALL of the YAOTL'ers!


  1. Trish Doller, you rock!! Thanks for much for doing that. I am sitting at a bookstore right now writing (when not readint this blog!!) and you've given me an idea to walk over to the YA section snd turn all of our books face out.

    You are brilliant and sweet. Thanks!!

  2. That is soooooooo cool! I love seeing the vast array of talent and variety we represent.

    Thanks so much, Trish!

  3. Trish Doller, thank you! You're great.

  4. Aw, that's so nice! I'm always amazing to see Dirty Little Secrets out in the wild, especially among such great company.

  5. Wow, Trish! Thanks so much for the "exposure."~! So honored to see Breathe My Name up there amongst so many wonderful books. Thanks again!

  6. Chiming in late, but wanted to say thank you, too. I'm very honored to be included :)
