Tu Books!!

Hey guys, I admit that I am not a good blogger lately. I feel that it is the lack of donuts that is causing me to be such a poor internet presence these days. I am just so weak these days. But I do have a bit of a scoop that I want to share with you. I have an interview up with the fabulous Stacy Whitman, editor extraordinaire, founder of Tu Books, an independent press focusing on multicultural fantasy and science fiction for middle grade and young adult readers, over at the Enchanted Inkpot. Tu Books has now been acquired by Lee and Low Books!

Tu Books

I'm really proud of Stacy. She started an independent press because she saw a need in the marketplace for multicultural books for children. She started it against all odds, willing to make lots of sacrifices to make it work, and now all her hard work has paid off and Tu Books is now an imprint and Stacy is the Editorial Director! Instead of just 2 books the first year, she hopes to publish 6 titles in 2011!

So please check out the interview and let me know what you think of this new publishing endeavor.
