This issue is dear to my heart. It is our first crossover edition featuring our sister publication, Girl Plus Book, a young adult book blog. Girl Plus Book started as a small passion project that I created over 10 years ago with an old college buddy of mine. And now we are proud to announce that our new website for Girl Plus Book is now live and ready for submissions for indie authors to submit their work for guest posts, interviews, book reviews, and giveaways. We are excited to be reviving this online community and excited for all the new YA titles to share with you this year. Enjoy the issue.
