The Contemps Website and Challenge

I'm really excited about The Contempts website and challenge so I thought I'd do a post about it in case some of you hadn't already heard about it.

The Contempts are a group of YA authors who have contemporary novels being released over the next 12 months. They have set up a website called The Contempts which you can visit here. Check out their introduction video below.

There is also a challenge you can sign up for - with the chance to win the books if you accept the challenge before 15 November 2010. You can get the details by clicking on the image below.
