YA Novelists by Day, Rock Stars By Night

In the video embedded above, four young adult authors partied like rock stars last Friday–leading the YA supergroup, Tiger Beat.

Libba Bray wailed on vocals, Daniel Ehrenhaft played guitar, Natalie Standiford played bass, and Barney Miller handled drums. The band headlined the launch party for Sourcebooks Fire, the publisher’s brand new YA imprint. GalleyCat missed the party, but Sourcebooks passed along the excellent video.

Here’s more from the blog post: “At Books of Wonder, Sourcebooks threw the biggest, baddest YA launch party this side of the Mason-Dixon line. Rocking the house was Tiger Beat … creatively titled ‘YA Song.’ From the people that brought you Dr. Seuss… Tiger Beat!”
