This month at the Kirkus blog

April 23, 2011

    Hear, hear!
    Inasmuch as I used to watch Trading Spaces just to oogle Asian designer Vern Yip, I daresay YA should get on the bandwagon with this one.

    I can’t comment on the Kirkus thingy because it’s a Facebook sign-in and I gave mine up, but I do read your stuff!

      Don’t worry about not commenting at the Kirkus site; I can’t comment there myself since I’m not on Facebook, either.
