Announcement: 6 Degrees Comes To Teens On Moon Lane!

By Jim Dean, January 30, 2016

We are thrilled to announce that we’ll be doing a YA/MG focused version of the fantastic #6degrees meme, started by Emma Chapman and Annabel Smith, as of next week! A huge thanks to Emma and Annabel for allowing us to do so.

For those who haven’t joined in before, it’s a simple but really fun idea. On the first Saturday of every month, we’ll post a chain of 6 books, with each successive pair linked together by a different connection. Other bloggers/readers are encouraged to then do their own chain (starting from the same book) at any point during the month, either on their blog, leaving us a link, or in the comments section of our post. For an example of how it works, check out this post on my YA Yeah Yeah blog.

We’re also extremely excited to let you know that in addition to our starting post, we’ll be running weekly posts every Saturday with guest authors and bloggers sharing their chains with us!

So, what book or series to start off with? Could it really be anything other than the most successful children’s book of recent years?

Yes, that’s right, the February choice is Harry Potter (either the Philosopher’s Stone or the series as a whole, whichever you’d prefer) and we’re delighted to have two of our favourite Slytherins guesting during the month! We’ll kick it off with our own chain on Feb 6th, The Sleeping Prince author Melinda Salisbury will be doing hers on Feb 13th, and our first guest blogger will be Caitlin from Chronically Caitlin (who came up with the brilliant idea of guest authors and bloggers!) on Feb 20th! Feb 27th is still to be confirmed, but we’re looking forward to an amazing month on the feature.

Are you going to take part on your blog? It would be great to get as many people as possible involved! Don’t forget to head back here any time after Feb 6th to see our chain and leave us a link if you do.

What do you think?
