Australian author Christopher Cheng, who is also a literacy ambassador for National Literacy and Numeracy Week has started a new blog, newkidsbooksinoz, which highlights new children’s book releases.
Notes From the Slush Pile is a UK-based blog which reports on all aspects of the children’s book industry, including marketing and promotion. Lots of useful information, and plenty of time wasters to click on and enjoy.
The Cybils – the Children’s and Young Adult Bloggers Literary Awards – are now open for nominations. Nominate your favourite children’s or YA book published in 2008, or simply browse the nominations (and comments) for some reading recommendations.
