Announcing… E Lockhart Tour Dates!

It might not have escaped your attention in the last few months that E Lockhart’s WE WERE LIARS has been a pretty big book for us…  It’s been reviewed almost everywhere, and is also shortlisted for the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize (announcing the winner on Thursday this week eep!) and has just been nominated for the […]

Librarian love at the YLG Conference

We’re big fans of librarians at Hot Key Books. Books pretty much rock their world, and that’s our kind of person! Livs and I spent this weekend at the YLG Conference (that’s Youth Librarians Group to the uninitiated) in Durham. Back in London, word on the street was that we would have a pretty romantic time, […]

Through the Keyhole: Garth Nix on tour!

For this month’s Through the Keyhole posts I thought it would be nice to recap the epic few weeks of events we’ve had at Hot Key – there’s been so many brilliant festivals, bookshop talks and school events that we just had to share the joy! First up will be a recap of Garth Nix’s […]

But of course, don’t forget that first, at the […]

Maureen Johnson in the UK!

People of the internet – pay attention! The one and only Maureen Johnson, Queen of Teen 2012-2014, is bringing her awkward stare to our green land once again. As she is appearing at the Edinburgh Festival we thought it would only be fair to let the rest of the country in on the action. We’ve […]

Hot Key at Summer in the City

This year, for the first time ever, a book publisher is going to be at the event of the summer, yep Hot Key Books are going to SUMMER IN THE CITY! I (and most of the team) am slightly older and a bit less familiar with loom bands than the usual SitC crowd but that doesn’t mean we’re […]

All hail… Queen James!

On Friday 11th July, we dusted off our pink frocks and hopped down to the train station to take a trip to Godalming for the one and only QUEEN OF TEEN AWARDS CEREMONY! The Queen of Teen is a really fun award for teen and YA authors run by The Book People, and it’s quite […]
