  1. What gorgeous covers and interesting-looking titles! And your cover is just stupendous: I love everything about it!

    1. Thanks, Kim! I still find it hard to believe I'm one of #the21ders!

  2. Wow, what a list! I already have noted a few, but will gather the others, too! We Got Game is one I will be sure to get for my granddaughters! Thank you!

    1. Thanks, Linda. I'm sure your granddaughters will love that book!

  3. So many titles! I am almost up to the June titles .

    1. They're all wonderful, Karen. I'm honored to be in such a talented group.

  4. What an incredible set of debuts! I can't believe your book comes out in less than three months—that's so exciting! I also definitely want to read Thanks a Lot, Universe. (By the way, I do hope the 2022 debut authors can come up with a name for themselves as clever as 21ders!) Thanks for the great post!

    1. Thanks, Completely! Less than three months! Eeek! And I also think the21ders is a clever name. I didn't join them until June 2020 and it was already established.

  5. I'm so incredibly proud to be part of this amazing group of writers!!

    1. Yay, Rachel! Thank you. Isn't it an awesome group?

  6. What a great lot of books and all the covers so amazing! Happy spring!

  7. Oooh, what a neat SPRING graphic! These books can't come out fast enough (or my libraries can't get them in fast enough!!). Thanks for sharing, Joanne! I'm going to head on over to your group website to make sure I'm subscribed.
