On finding cross-cultural connections in our reading (and important points in the comments about how those connections should be as accurate as possible). http://www.cbcdiversity.com/2012/04/cross-cultural-connections-in-our.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

We're talking about covers over at The Open Book (the Lee & Low blog), and I've also done a prequel talking about my own cover-brainstorming process. Start here: http://www.stacylwhitman.com/2012/03/09/how-a-book-gets-a-cover-the-prequel/, then go here: http://blog.leeandlow.com/2012/03/07/design-101-how-a-book-cover-gets-made, and then here: http://blog.leeandlow.com/2012/03/14/design-101-how-a-book-cover-gets-made-part-ii/

Okay, I'll bite. Is there a Stacy Club y'all want me to join or something? A Conspiracy of Stacys? Because in the last 2 days, a total of 7 Stacy/Staceys have added me here. Did each of them individually suddenly decide they wanted to follow a bunch of Stacys? Did they each individually find solidarity with me because of our common name? Inquiring minds want to know.

Gmail always works (you should be able to message me through G+ to my gmail, right?).

Win a critique from me!
Cynthia Leitich Smith originally shared:
 
Tu Books/Lee & Low editor +Stacy Whitman interviews +Karen Sandler about her professional/science/writing background and worldbuilding in Tankborn. Peek: "Those in the highest socio-economic strata have the most power and autonomy. That has always been true."

Plus, Stacy is offering a critique of up to 10 pages of a middle grade (8-12) or YA (12 and up) fiction manuscript. Although Stacy specializes in fantasy/sci fi/mystery, other types of manuscripts (including realistic) are welcome. Eligibility: international. See post for details!

Is it just me, or have my contacts disappeared from Gmail? I can't find a link anywhere.

I use it so rarely in the Gmail interface because my phone is an Android, but sometimes I need to use it online, and when I do, it needs to be findable! :)

Looking for diversity in your reading? I've made book recommendation lists on Pinterest sorted by genre and reading level, which I've found is more visual and easier to keep up to date than on my blog. http://pinterest.com/stacylwhitman/

In the 4 or 5 months since I've been on G+, has there been any further integration of a posting tool like Tweetdeck to allow people like me to streamline these things? Or perhaps a way to mirror my blog here, which might be more appropriate? I figured it'd be worth asking, since I do want to get involved here--and there are so many people on here who aren't necessarily on FB or Twitter--but as the last few months can attest, I also don't need yet another place to have to visit and keep up with on a regular basis. It's easier to manage if I can streamline it all in one place.

Still working on restoring my laptop, so I haven't had the chance yet to try it. The new hard drive is driving me a bit mad, as it feels worse in performance than my failing previous hard drive. Probably won't get to it for a while.

Well, this is Tildrum, not Mogget, but it's the same principle. I love when the weather gets cold enough that the cats want to sit on my lap again. Or, well, drape themselves across my lap.

I'm very excited about this project to benefit Japanese teens in the quake/tsunami region, and so happy to see it found a home at Stonebridge.
Debbie Ohi originally shared:
 
A while back I mentioned how excited I was that my illustrated short story Kodama was chosen to be included in TOMO, a fiction anthology edited by Holly Thompson, to be published by Stone Bridge Press in March 2012. Proceeds from the sales of the Tomo anthology will go to organizations that assist teens in the Japan quake and tsunami hit areas.

Anyway, Holly recently revealed the cover (see below), which includes art by John Shelly. Beautiful!

Introduction
I'm the editorial director of Tu Books, a new imprint of Lee & Low Books. We focus on diversity in fantasy, science fiction, and mystery for children (ages 8-12) and young adults (ages 12 and up). Check out our new books on our website! I also blog on my own site about writing for children, multicultural issues, books for children and young adults, and occasionally my cats. If you have a publishing question that you would like me to answer on my blog (generalizable to a larger audience of writers, and anonymized if desired), feel free to email me. Note, however, that I do not accept submissions at that email address.
