Yep, I've started a new blog. As if I didn't already have my hands full, right? :) :) The thing is, as an author of a Latina YA, I was a little discouraged to not be able to find a place on the web that featured books with Latina teen characters. Not only that, but I'd heard from a teen reader how thrilled she was to finally have found a book that was written with her culture and with characters similar to herself. I knew there were other books out there, but I didn't know more than a handful of titles, either. Wouldn't it be totally easy if I could just click to one place and get all the info I wanted?
There was only one solution--for me!--I could come up with this place myself. So I've launched the blog, LATINA YA: An on-line resource for Latina Young Adult Fiction.
This blog is a work-in-progress, and hopefully will grow as I build on. I would like it to be an easy to find resource for readers, librarians, teachers, and book clubs. I've added novels and author bios, and will hopefully be able to add any market information or guest blogs from authors in the future. Please visit LatinaYA.blogspot.com and check it out!
