Announcement: 2011 YA Book Genre Battle

Hey, guys! I know I promised to start the battle yesterday (February 5), but I’ve been having a lack of advocates (oof). So I think I found a solution. I’ll be having advocates in the SECOND round. (More on this later.) So if you signed up to be an advocate, please check your email some time within the next few days!

Anyway. Other news. We’re going to start the battle OFFICIALLY this Wednesday. So if you want to head on over for the first match, come here on February 8 at 12:00pm CST sharp. The matches each last two days.

Other news. I’ve got a pretty button for you! It’s pink (eh), but I might actually like it. It’s quite a simplistic design.
