Summer Blog Blast Tour Starts Sunday!!

The first Summer Blog Blast Tour starts this Sunday, June 17th! I am so thrilled to be part of this author interview extravaganza. Colleen Mondor of Chasing Ray fame did an incredible job organizing this. We have 16 wonderful bloggers, 27 talented authors, and 54 interesting interviews in one week. How's that for a little taste of what the kidlit blogosphere can do?

As Colleen says, "The SBBT is about showing what the lit blogosphere can do like no other aspect of the literary world and in this particular case, it's about how the kid lit bloggers can help to advance the cause of getting more kids to read. That's why we are at this party in the first place and if this is what we can bring to the table, well make room - because we are showing up in a very big way!"

Here's my interview post schedule:
Monday, June 18th: Justina Chen Headley
Wednesday, June 20th: Mitali Perkins
Friday, June 22nd: Justine Larbalestier
