Today is officially Nick Lake day on the blog! We're proud to be a part of the Nick Lake Blog tour that's being hosted by the awesome team at Bloomsbury!
I was recently introduced to Nick's work via the super awesome Lizzy at Bloomsbury, and I want to share his awesome with all of you!
Some fun facts on Nick:
* Nick is editorial director at HarperCollins Children's UK , which means he has some pretty flawless taste when it comes to YA lit.
* Nick has written five YA books:
- In Darkness
- Hostage Three
- Blood Ninja #1
- Blood Ninja #2
- Blood Ninja #3
* In Darkness won the 2013 Printz Award.
* He's also clearly funny, as evidenced by this article detailing his 2013 Printz Award win.
When the Printz committee informed Lake that he had won, he said, “My reaction was one of utter disbelief. I asked them if they were sure they didn’t want to give it to someone else, which evidently authors do not usually ask. It was pure shock and surprise in the middle of a working-from-home day.”
But! Before you all go pre-order There Will Be Lies, why not check out my reviews of his earlier work? I'm reviewing Hostage Three and In Darkness later in the day!
(Also, Nick has another book coming out in 2016, but patience young padawans! Let's concentrate on what's immediately ahead of us. *Grin*)
