Tales Post – #CountdownML – Releases 31/12 – 21/1 Chat Round Up



On the 28th December for the first time ever I hosted I twitter chat!

I know!  Me!  Hosting a twitter chat!  OMG!

For those of you who don’t already know #CountdownML is the creation of the wonderful Jim – @YaYeahYeah – and is hosted over on the @teensonmoonlane account.

The idea is to celebrate and chat about upcoming YA/MG UK releases each month and coincides with the creation of the most fabulous spreadsheet by the brilliant @SnugglingonSofa and YaYeahYeahhere which details as many UK YA/MG releases and fab blogger reviews as possible.

Jim asked me if I would like to be involved this year and make #CountdownML a monthly occurrence and after enjoying the previous chats (under #CountdownYA) I immediately jumped at the chance.

This therefore led on to me hosting the first #CountdownML chat of the year and the first chat I have hosted…ever!

And I really enjoyed myself!  The hour flew by and it was an hour full of crazy fast typing, brilliant conversation and books!

So many fab books!


For this months #CountdownML chat we talked about books being released between 31/12/2015 – 21/01/2016.

Here they are with thanks to fab graphics by Jim (@YaYeahYeah)!




There are also some fab paperback releases and new cover releases that we chatted about too!

I really enjoyed hosting my first twitter chat!

A huge thank you to @YaYeahYeah for trusting asking me to host the chat and for all the fab graphics and contacting publishers and authors etc.

Also to @SnugglingonSofa for maintaining this fab spreadsheet!

To all the fab publicists and authors who helped with giving Jim, Debbie and myself information about upcoming releases.

And as I said in the chat – a twitter chat is only as AWESOME as the people taking part.  So the biggest thank you to everyone who joined in and made #CountdownML AMAZING and my first chat hosting so much fun!
