Three Thing Thursday

  1. Tu Publishing is hosting a New Visions Award. They describe it like this: a writing award for a debut author of color for a middle grade or young adult science fiction, fantasy, or mystery novel Our friend, the lovely and talented Ms. Valynne Maetani Nagamatsu is one of the finalists. Read their interview with her here. 
  2. I met Valynne at the Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers conference, which is now open for  registration. There will be lots more about the conference, the teachers, etc. as the days go on but if you are interested, I’d advise you to register as soon as possible. It’s where I got my start along with many many others.
  3. And finally, what about this article? I mean there are emergencies, and then there are EMERGENCIES!!!! Why would your MC call 911? Would they ever call for some soda? or maybe some sour patch kids? 

Also, I can’t resist. Because everyone deserves clean water.

Check back in for a review of My Book of Life by Angel written by this year’s WIFYR faculty, Martine Leavitt. (www.wifyr.com)
I read it yesterday at work.
I very much enjoyed it. But sadly, a book review can not be done at this time because I left my copy of the novel at  home, sitting on my couch, so Laura could give it a read.
So I will write a review in a few days, or next week.
I have nothing else to say at this time.
