YA Shot 2016 Tour – featuring Melinda Salisbury


Hello everyone! Today’s post is something a little different. I’m here today to talk about YA Shot.

YA Shot is a one-day festival that brings together UK Young Adult and Middle Grade authors. It’s a celebration of writing for young readers that aims to promote the joy of reading and inspire a passion for writing.

Although YA Shot works year around to help pair schools with local libraries for author events, the event itself takes place on 22nd October 2016. It involves around 70 authors and takes the form of a programme of workshops, panels and book singing sessions at Uxbridge Civic, Centre, Waterstone’s Uxbridge and Uxbridge Library. If you’re interested in attending, you should definitely check out their website – https://yashot.wordpress.com/ 

In honour of this special event, I’m pleased to have a special guest for this post. Melinda Salisbury is one of the fantastic authors involved in YA Shot. She’s the author of two fantastic fantasy novels – The Sin Eater’s Daughter and The Sleeping Prince – both of which you can find reviewed on this blog. The third book in the series, provisionally titled The Scarecrow Queen, is due for release in early 2017.

To read our interview and have a chance to win a copy of The Sin Eater’s Daughter, read on:


We’ll Be Right Back After These Messages…

Hi everyone.

Thanks for your continuing support of Arkham Reviews. I apologise that my reviews have been a little slower of late. I’ve had a couple of stresses within my personal life which have eaten into a bit of my free time and thus have impacted the blog. I’m still as enthused as ever though and continue to chip away at my substantial ‘to read’ pile.

Over the last couple of months I’ve had the opportunity to join in a neat selection of blog tours and also been interviewed for The Indie View (you can read it it here). I still have plenty of novels that I’m looking forward to sharing with you – below is a sneak peak of what to expect over the next month or two:

E by Kate Wrath

The Dead by Charlie Higson

Squeal by Enoch St. John

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riodan

Halfway Heroes by Dustin Martin

Slaves of the Mastery by William Nicholson

Guardian of the Underworld by Rachel Tetley

Evermore by Alyson Noel

The Tale of Atterberry by Leah Price

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

The Silver Chest by Zhu Hsia

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

However, before we get to these Nick, Sobek and I will be taking a much earned vacation. We’ve queued up two more reviews – The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya by Nagaru Tanigawa and The Haunting of Secrets by Shelley R Pickens – to tie you over to our return. I hope you enjoy reading them!
