– Debbie Michiko Florence has a new blog called DEBtastic Reads! where in her words, “I will highlight my favorite books and authors, interviews, book buzz, contests, and more. I hope you will join me and share your favorites, too!” The site looks terrific — congrats on the launch!
– My NESCBWI conference co-director, Greg Fishbone, has the first book of his brand new series coming out this month! I got to flip through Galaxy Games in May, and it looks incredibly fun — exactly the kind of book I would have loved as a kid.
