Oh, the chat thing is easy-get on Twitter at the allotted time on Wed eve, and then join in by using the hashtag #YALitchat along with your posts and you'll be directed to the conversation from that hashtag.

Aww, thanks, Elizabeth! Glad you like Ruby's Fire, and you know how helpful reviews are to Indie authors!!! I agree that the loss of the YA LIt Chat site is huge. We should both "attend" one of the Twitter nights soon. :)

Thanks Catherine for confirming my fears.  The twitter chats are on Wed nights, but at a lost how to do the chat thingey. :) BTW, I love Ruby's Fire, I will put up a review on Amazon. 

While I have your attention, how do you connect with other YA writers?

Comment by Catherine Stine on May 6, 2014 at 1:02pm

Elizabeth, not that I know of, except that YAlitchat still has the Twitter chats on... is it Wed nights???

Comment by Elizabeth W Gibson on May 6, 2014 at 12:15pm

I have a question for you.  Since YALITChat closed are there any other forum/site,s besides this one, that caters to YA writers?  Would appreciate any input.

Hello Ladies. Anyone here have a moment (or a few, actually) to spare? I am looking some feedback on the 10th chapter of my YA Silent Voices. It is written from a omniscient third-person narrative, focusing on one or two of the for MCs feelings (or silenced voices) in each chapter.

Silent Voices: Flowers and Flirts

I have taken forever to actually get down to writing this chapter (January blues turning to March blues!)

It would be very kind of you to give me any positive, negative or constructive feedback you may be willing to share. Thank you very much in advance! :)
