Author Spotlight: Multiculturalism in YA Fantasy, Sci Fi, Paranormal, and Fun Books

Hi Everyone! To folks in the US, I hope you have a lovely Fourth of July weekend!

I was recently selected for an Author Spotlight in the Goodreads Groups, "Multiculturalism in YA Fantasy, Sci Fi, Paranormal, and Fun Books." I've had a lot of fun participating in the thoughtful discussions here and meeting folks from all over the globe. It's fantastic to hear about so many other indie books that are breaking out of the mainstream, Euro-centric mold. You'll definitely want to be part of the discussion. Check it out here:

For those of you who don't know, this Goodreads groups is moderated by the fabulous duo Libertad and Guinevere, who run a wonderfully thought-provoking blog dedicated to celebrating multicultural entries into YA fantasy. They conduct book reviews, host discussions, and keep us updated on their upcoming novels, so please drop by!

July Book Review of the Month coming soon! Karen Marie Moning is well-known for her Scottish romance novels, but in her dark fantasy Fever Series, we get to go to Ireland :) I had the marvelous opportunity to spend time over there in the small coastal town of Galway, so I'm excited to revisit old legends of the Sidhe in Dark Fever.
