On the blogs

Interesting Post Alert: My blog friend Doret tells authors "Your PCness Offends Me" in a fascinating post a TheHappyNappyBookseller. Doret writes, "I absolutely hate when I read a MG or YA title, and a character is described as African American. 'Nicole is my African American neighbor.' Ok so that example sucks, but why can't Nicole just be black."

It's a good question and I hope you all will head on over to Doret's place and leave your two cents.

It's time for another blogroll update! If I'm missing a great blog (yours included!), please let me know in the comments. Here are a couple I know I'm adding this evening:
