Preview the NEW (coming January)

Next month, we’re excited to launch our brand new website … this will be a sister site for NNT, and will expand on the same principles we cherish here: to encourage education and to foster a life-long love of reading by promoting great books for Young Adult readers. But with the new, we’re moving well beyond just the Twilight series. Don’t worry, the NNT you know and love isn’t going anywhere — we’ll still be here, updating you with news, downloads, contests and more.

But the new will feature even more goodies for you to enjoy and will help you explore more great books to read!

As we prepare for the launch of the new, we thought we’d give you a little sneak peek … so without further ado, here is a preview of what the new site will look like and some of the content you can find:

You’ll notice we already have a button in our sidebar to help link you to the new Novel Novice … you can also follow Novel Novice on Twitter and become a fan of Novel Novice on Facebook, for more updates & goodies!

Meanwhile, we want YOUR suggestions for books & authors to feature on the new site. We’re also looking for affiliates, so any sites interested out there — shoot us an e-mail at


A little Twi-News to get your Monday started off right!

I found Edward Cullen under my Christmas tree!

Okay, not exactly Edward Cullen … but I did find an Edward Cullen Christmas tag on one of my presents, and some delightful Twilight gifts under the tree!

The most exciting was this painting my mom made (thanks, mom!) called “Twilight in Winter,” in which she depicted Bella and Edward as snowmen. The Edward snowman is even sparkly!

And here is the package with the Edward Cullen tag, which my clever mom made using one of the holiday downloads available right here on Novel Novice Twilight!

(Inside this delightful box was some of the Luna Twilight makeup, and two necklaces from Nordstrom’s New Moon collection.)

What sort of Twilight Saga goodies did you get for the holidays this year? Tell us in the comments!

Catching up on some post-holiday Twi-News!
