Today, a new website launches called Emblazon, a website dedicated to the writers for 11-14 year olds. I think this is great, I often hear of people struggling to find reading for children of this age. They are hungry readers with little to turn to to satisfy their reading cravings.
Also, I'm happy to see two of my personal friends at Emblezon (stuff below is shamelessly pilfered from their website):
Mikey Brooks is a small child masquerading as adult. On occasion you’ll find him dancing the funky chicken, singing like a banshee, and pretending to have never grown up. He is the author/illustrator of several picture books including BEAN’S DRAGONS, the ABC ADVENTURES series, and the author of the middle-grade fantasy-adventure novel, THE DREAM KEEPER. He spends most of his time playing with his daughters and working as a freelance illustrator. Mikey has a BS degree in Creative Writing from Utah State University. He is also one of the hosts of the Authors’ Think Tank Podcast.

When Monique Bucheger isn’t writing, you can find her playing taxi driver to one or more of her 12 children, plotting her next novel, scrapbooking, or being the “Mamarazzi” at any number of child-oriented events. Even though she realizes there will never be enough hours in any given day, Monique tries very hard to enjoy the journey that is her life. She shares it with a terrific husband, her dozen children, one adorable granddaughter, two cats, and many real and imaginary friends. She is the author of the GINNIE WEST ADVENTURE series.
