I got sunshine…

Nothing makes up for a sleepless night like a sunny morning and a wonderful review!  Colleen over at Lavender Lines is only the second Canadian book blogger to review Wish (thank you, Colleen!). Here’s some of what she had to say:

I have a confession to make: while I read A LOT, I don’t tend to read books with main characters from different cultures and backgrounds than my own. It’s something that I want to work on, to change. A Wish After Midnight is my first attempt at broadening my literary horizons. And if every subsequent book is as tightly written and captivating as this one I should be a more well rounded reader in no time.

Maybe Doret’s right—maybe more and more book bloggers are throwing their support behind writers of color!  It’s definitely appreciated.  In other Canadian news, I’ll be at the Toronto Women’s Bookstore next month along with Vivek Shraya and Neesha Meminger.  I’ll post more details about the April 21st event (“Changing the Face of Publishing”) as it draws near—you’ll be able to watch it on the store’s website if you’re not up in the Great White North…
