Ripley's Booklist


Ripley's Booklist banner

YA Author Ripley Patton and her YA son are starting a new endeavor, RIPLEY'S BOOKLIST, and they're seeking YA Authors and Readers to join them.

RIPLEY’S BOOKLIST is a Young Adult Fiction e-book subscription list curated by the mother/son team, serving up quality CHEAP and FREE YA book deals to your inbox once a week.

WHAT MAKES RIPLEY'S BOOKLIST UNIQUE?

THEY FOCUS ON WHAT THEY LOVE AND KNOW: AWESOME YA FICTION

E-book subscription lists are a dime a dozen, There are hundreds of them, many of which you've probably already subscribed (and then unsubscribed) to. So, why add another one? Ripley's Booklist will focus on young adult fiction ONLY. They read YA. They write YA. They breathe YA. So, they'll be honing in on what they know and love to curate the best YA fiction under $5 they can find. If you read YA, this list is for you.

THEY'RE PICKY

Most e-book subscriptions lists accept any book or author who pays their listing fee. That isn't curating. It's business. RIPLEY'S BOOKLIST will ONLY feature books they ourselves would want to read, own, and spend their hard earned money on. They are going to be VERY selective, and they're going to tell you exactly why they selected the books they chose.

THEY HAVE BIG PLANS

They want to cultivate their list into a vibrant YA reading and writing community. In the future, they hope to not only list books but to develop such features as Themed Lists (Example: YA books featuring autism), Monthly Reading Challenges, Book Clubs, Book Discussions, Guest Authors, Giveaways, and more. And they'll be polling you, their readers and authors, to see how they can best serve you. Getting in on the ground floor now allows you to be a part of exactly how Ripley's Booklist evolves and grows.

CALLING ALL YA READERS AND WRITERS

RIPLEY'S BOOKLIST will begin going out to subscribers the first week of April, but before that can happen they need readers and they need authors to submit their books. On the first count, because of the following Ripley has built up around her acclaimed YA series, THE PSS CHRONICLES, RIPLEY'S BOOKLIST already has a reach of close to 30,000 viewers. But they want to grow their list and blow that number out of the water.

So, if you are a reader of YA, you can sign up HERE, right now.

If you're an author, you can check out their AUTHOR SUBMISSIONS PAGE HERE for all the details.
