Summer Blog Blast Tour: This Week

I'm late in posting about this, due to yet another trip, and some difficulty in keeping up with work, but this week is the second annual Summer Blog Blast Tour, organized by the talented and tireless Colleen Mondor from Chasing Ray. The SBBT is an organized collection of author interviews, with several authors visiting multiple sites, and several sites interviewing multiple authors. I'm not participating, but I have been part of Blog Blast Tours in the past, and I think that they are a wonderful way to generate excitement about children's and young adult authors across the Kidlitosphere. Here is the complete schedule for the week, organized by Colleen, copied from Bildungsroman, with links coded by Little Willow and Kelly Fineman):
