Say Their Name

Today we’ve got a guest post from Hot Key author, James Dawson (with two very special guest appearances!) Hello dear readers, The Hot Key team asked me to write a short blog to keep you up to date with everything that’s going on with me. Yes, ME. Let’s start with Say Her Name. Two weeks […]

All About BookTube (London Book Fair 2014)

Books are my bag…

We’re all book lovers here at Hot Key (can ya tell?), but as all you other book lovers know, loving books doesn’t stop at the stories, characters and worlds that leap from the pages and into our hearts and imaginations. The objects themselves are something to be loved, stroked and smelt.  Whether you’re the type […]

The Digital Generation

Our guest blog today comes from Evie Prysor-Jones, who we met a few weeks ago at City University. As her MA in Publishing Studies at City University comes to an end, Evie (@Evelyn_PJ) is trying to spend less time reading young adult fiction and more time actually studying. She is a frequent tweeter, blogger and […]

The trick of film adaptation

Hope Kemp is a student, filmmaker, and occasional book blogger.

Well, I’ll be cursed!

Hello, I’m Gabby – fifteen and already a self-confessed read-aholic. Apart from being a stereo-typical teenager when it comes to addiction of Supernatural books, I also love the genre of adventure and action, but to be perfectly honest, anything will do! One day I hope to be a writer or publisher so I do what […]

eBooks — The Good Things!

Hi! I’m Georgia- I’m nearly thirteen, and an avid reader, writer and blogger. I love to read any kinds of books I can find, mainly adventure, horror, and crime. I read and review books as a hobby, and hope to get a job as either an author or something in the publishing world one day. […]

Young Bloggers Week

This week on the blog, we’re trying something a little different. Instead of talking about what teens want or the books we’re making for them, we’re going to let the youth of the blogosphere speak for themselves. All week, we’re taking a break from all the adult voices and giving a group of young people […]

Gender, Gender, Everywhere

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock recently, you’ll know that here at Hot Key Towers we’ve been wildly celebrating the fantastic news that Sally Gardner’s MAGGOT MOON has just won the Costa Children’s Book Award. There’s obviously been lots of press about the awards recently, and one of the key things people have been […]
