I wanted to do a quick roundup of some of my posts in other places over the last week or so before I forget to!
Over at Book Riot, I’ve got a post today about kid lit as it has been represented on stamps throughout the world (and there are some awesome stamps here, I think — I love how differently different countries have interpreted these stories into art).
Last week at Book Riot, I talked about Sherman Alexie’s Part-Time Indian and more specifically how adults are ultimately responsible for the hyper sexualizing of young adult fiction (I borrowed a line from the mom who was angry about Alexie’s book and called the post “Fifty Shades for Kids“).
I wrote about the three things that good contemporary YA can teach you about writing in any genre. Because my specialty is reading rather than writing fiction, the emphasis is on examples throughout contemporary YA — so it should offer some solid contemporary (and non contemporary!) book recommendations.
Also as part of my post, I’m giving away a 10-page first chapter critique. Entering involves just commenting on the post in some way.
I think that covers it.
Have I mentioned how much Kimberly and I appreciate everyone who reads STACKED, comments here, shares our posts or otherwise engages with us? Thank you!
