I know many fellow book bloggers who want/are trying to publish their own novels (including myself). Publishing novels is not an easy task but recently I have come across a few bloggers whose books are coming out. This is truly exciting and I want to congratulate them for all the hard work they have put into their novels.

Hunted by DJ DeSmyter
Publication Date: August 9, 2011
Summary (from the publisher's website):
Seventeen-year-old Lily Atwater has always kept to herself, living a lonely life with her workaholic dad. Not the most thrilling life, but it's quiet and ordinary, two things she's come to expect from living in Victor Hills, Michigan.

Lenore from Presenting Lenore
Lenore has published her novel with Simon and Schuster and is dated to be released in the fall of 2012. Here's some more information (taken from Lenore's blog):
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers has acquired a YA novel called Level Two by Lenore Appelhans, in a joint acquisition with CBS Films. According to S&S, this is the first time the company has coordinated a deal so that an author received a simultaneous book and film offer. In Level Two, the liminal place between our world (Level One) and heaven, Felicia spends her days reliving her memories from the security of her pod—until she gets broken out by Julian, a boy she met on Earth. Appelhans writes the popular YA blog Presenting Lenore. Level Two will be published in either fall 2012 or spring 2013, with a 200,000-copy first printing.
I want to congratulate these two wonderful bloggers! I wish you the best of luck
