Out of the Mouths of Cybils Authors

If you haven't yet heard of the Blog Blast Tours organized by Colleen Mondor of Chasing Ray (who also happened to be a Round II Judge this past year for MG/YA Non-Fiction), then you're missing out–this twice-yearly week-long event involves some truly excellent bloggers from around the kidlitosphere AND features a wide and fascinating range of authors and illustrators. Just check the list of bloggers and you'll recognize our own Kerry Millar, Little Willow, Betsy Bird, Gwenda Bond, Kelly Fineman, and many, many more.

This year's Summer Blog Blast Tour took place May 17 – 21, and included a number of Cybils-nominated authors…and one Cybils winner! On Finding Wonderland, the blog co-produced by author and Cybils Fantasy & Sci-Fi Judge Tanita Davis and yours truly, is an interview with YA Graphic Novel winner Tom Siddell. Also featured during the week were:

I must say, we Cybilites are a talented bunch of interviewers–and our nominees make great interview subjects! Check out the master SBBT schedule here.
