We're chuffed. . .

. . . to get a recommendation from the School Library Journal's blog where they call us "a blog to definitely watch". While we unfortunately - being Canadian reps - rarely get to any of the U.S. library shows, we certainly represent a number of US publishers and have a lot of American readers, (hello to all those librarians from Ohio!). Most of the books we talk about are available in the US, though sometimes from different publishers; we hope we can introduce American and International readers to some of our great Canadian writers. Isn't the internet grand? We'll soon be posting our Dewey Picks for our favourite spring books so stay tuned.

And if you are attending the Ontario Library Association's Super Conference at the end of January, the Dewey Divas will be doing two separate sessions, talking about the upcoming books of the Spring season, one focused on adult books (session #311 at 9:05, Thursday, 31st) and one on children's books (session #1028, at 9:05 Friday, Feb. 1st). We'll also be in our respective publishers' booths during the Book Fair, so do stop by and say hello.

I came here via the SLJ site, and as a Canadian author whose debut novel (a contemporary MG fantasy) will be published by HarperCollins US in 2009, I'm thrilled to find such an active, interesting blog run by fellow Canadians. Looking forward to catching up on the archives!

Oh, and BTW, I've created a feed for your blog so that lazy LiveJournal folk like me can see their posts on their friendslists:
