Happy 3rd Anniversary, Buccaneers!!!

It's hard to believe that way back in 2012, Bridgid and I first brainstormed the idea for a fun and collaborative blog that would unite writers in all their various stages -- from story tellers just starting out, to those searching for CP's, to writers querying agents, and to authors publishing their debut novels! And now here we are, THREE YEARS LATER from the very date we first launched the YA Buccaneers, and we couldn't be more excited for everything we've accomplished!!!

Of course, we wouldn't be sitting here now, if it weren't for all of YOU! Everyone who has supported us over the years, chimed in with wonderful comments of encouragement, and all the lovely people we've met over that time that made everything we do so worthwhile! 

So to thank all of you for being there these past 3 years, we'll be spending July in full-on celebration mode, complete with lots of wonderful authors stopping by to say hello -- and did I mention we'll have their autographed books to giveaway? How about a sneak peak of the stash I'll be pulling from:

Some pretty great reads in that stack, right???? 

Of course, no summer would be complete without our annual Summer Reading Challenge which starts on Tuesday, 7/5 -- so check back for all the details on that next week! 

And for those that are still writing all the words, we'll of course be holding impromptu Word Sprints whenever we can, so be on the look out for WS's throughout the month! We'll also be keeping open both our Facebook and Twitter private groups if you still want to stay in touch that way, too!

So as we begin the second half of 2016, we'd like to thank each and every one of you so much for all your support over these past three years -- we honestly couldn't have done it with you!
