Summer Blog Blast Tour coming next week!

June 14, 2007

We’re still newbies in the blog world, so can I just say how excited we are that we’re a part of the Summer Blog Blast Tour? I mean, just take a look at the other blogs that are participating.

The Summer Blog Blast Tour is the brainchild of the amazing Colleen Mondor. In her own words,

Starting next Sunday, with an interview posted at Finding Wonderland with 2006 NBA finalist and Printz Award winner Gene Yang, there will be multiple blogs in the kidlitosphere conducting multiple interviews for the following week. We will average ten interviews a day with authors like Justine Larbalestier, Brent Hartinger, David Brin, Hilary McKay, Christopher Golden, Kazu Kibuishi, Chris Crutcher, Holly Black, Kirsten Miller and Shaun Tan. Between Yang’s interview on Sunday and the last one with Justina Chen Headley on Saturday there will be over 50 author interviews posted. These authors include multiple genres (SF, Fantasy, Mystery, Romance, Drama), multiple formats (prose, graphic novel, manga) and for mutliple audiences (boys and girls, straight and gay). Many of the authors agreed to more than one interview although fans should not be worried – the bloggers were careful to make sure that different questions were asked each time. In the end we hope to provide a wealth of information about how these authors create, the kind of books they write and what they have to offer to new readers and long time fans.

If you don’t already read her blog (and really, it’s a must read), go there NOW to see why she organized the tour and the master schedule of interviews.

Each day, we’ll post links to the other interviews. And, to whet your appetite, here’s our schedule:

Tuesday, June 19: Holly Black
Wednesday, June 20: Carolyn Mackler
Thursday, June 21: Laura Ruby
