About us

Amy is a librarian in her heart, but an office drone in reality. She is also a reading fiend (especially YA and middle grade), Jersey girl (fist pump!), and the blogger behind Tripping Over Books, where she reviews lots of YA books and fangirls over George R.R. Martin (Starks for life, yo!) and the Legend of Korra and fantasy and superheros and stuff. The CW is without question home to her favorite TV shows, including The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural. Amy has a really bad sweet tooth, although there’s little she won’t do for a Chipotle burrito (don’t even THINK about forgetting the guac). She has been an avid reader her whole life, but she especially loves high fantasy, contemporary romance, fairy tale retellings, and…well…basically she’ll read anything. Except zombies, although she could probably be convinced to give them another go. Reach Amy via email or on Twitter

Katelyn is a 20-year-old college student who just so happens to adore all things that make her a total nerd-girl. When she's not at work or school, you can likely find her babysitting her younger siblings, debating on whether she should be looking at pictures of cute cats online (likely) or reading a book (also very likely), blogging over at Kate’s Tales of Books and Bands, going on imaginary dates with one of her MANY fictional boyfriends, or listening to music. Sometimes when Kate is feeling brave she will even do all of them at the same time. Katelyn can be contacted either through her blog, via e-mail, or on Twitter!

Tara is addicted to being busy and has overwhelmed and overworked herself since the high school days when she was tricked into becoming the editor of her high school paper. She's interned for a film distribution company, flirted with the idea of film school, spent a glorious six months living in London, worked at her university library, as the assistant to a best-selling author, and has interned for multiple literary agents. She's a publicist with Entangled Publishing and an Assistant Agent with Larsen Pomada Literary Agents. She has a bookish blog (Hobbitsies), two cats, and a degree in Editing, Writing, and Media. You can contact her at taratgonzalez (at) gmail (dot) com or on Twitter @hobbitsies.
