Look! Im everywhere XD @drupkins @MadhuriBlaylock @dos_twinjas

So I've been very busying spewing out much needed(and much procrastinated I might say XD)guest posts for some awesome authors just weeks before our 2nd Annual Diversity Month.

We will get a chances to guest post on Latin@s in Kid Lit and GayYa soon, so we're busy,busy,busy!

Neither Libertad, nor I ever run out of topics to talk about when it comes to diversity. Even when you think you do, another subject comes up. 

Diversity is more about race, so when you acknowledge sexual orientation/identity, religion, size, socio-economic background, disability and all the other things that make a person diverse, the conversation never really ends.

Yesterday I was lucky enough to make my first ever stop to Twinja Book Reviews' "King of All Geeks" Dennis Upkins, author of "Hollowstone" and "West of Sunset."
I got to talk about how the people around us tend discourage how we do things, particularly read, diversely.

Have a gander at that!

Today I got to pop things off on author Madhuri BlayLock's blog, on her #SupportWNDB series of guest posts about diversity in books.
There I got to discuss why I prefer diverse main characters, to supporting diverse characters.

Yeah, just have a look see there...

If you havent already, consider donating to the #SupportWNDB campaign before their kickstarter ends! Their efforts are really everyone's efforts, and the more we do to support them the more we get to see diverse books get out there!

Guess who got to be The Cybils' November Featured Bloggers of the Month =)

So we should probably brag that we're "The Cybils" Featured Bloggers of the month!
For anyone who doesnt know much about The Cybils, which is understandable if you live under a rock, is an award that bloggers like you and me, can vote on to recognize the best titles for children's and young adult titles each year.

It's a pretty serious event, so for authors, make sure your work is edited well, as while they have opened up a category for self-published titles, it's got to be the best of the best!

Want to find out more? Check out their guidelines!

In the meantime, have a gander at our post!
