Here's our last bunch of blog posts for the Debut Novelists who are finalists for the 2015 Morris Awards. Cinco Puntos, of course, is biased, but we wish all writers and publishers the best in the future. Independent publishing is a magical journey, and we're delighted that all finalist novels are published by Independent Publishers. 

We also want to thank all the bloggers who participated in the blog tour for no compensation other than a few free books and hours of enjoyable reading. YA Fiction Bloggers are a great group of folks. They are fans, they are writers, and they want readers--especially young readers--to get excited about good novels. Here in El Paso we give abrazos, aka hugs, and so for all the bloggers, muchos abrazos y mil gracias!

Monday we'll see who the winner is! But in the meantime, here's what our bloggers have to say. 

Writers’ Rumpus starts us off with a guest post from E.K. Johnston, the author of The Story of Owen: Dragon Slayer of E.K. Johnston author of 

Unleashing Readers says Jessie Foley'sThe Carnival at Bray is an evocative ode to the Smells Like Teen Spirit Generation. It provides several items of teacher and librarian friendly links and information.

What Is Bridget Reading? Well, Bridget is reading The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender. She calls the novel "a compelling blend of magical realism and historical fiction."

NOTE! We're not done yet. A few of the blogs have not as yet been posted here! And of course, come Monday we'll be announcing the winners.
