Nothing from last post.

Kelly Jensen has sold an anthology of feminist themes essays to Algonquin, written by several YA authors (see the full list of contributors here).

David Levithan has four more books on the way -- a sequel to Every Day, two more books coauthored with Rachel Cohn, and one being kept a secret.

Harper Lee’s book sold more than 746k copies in its first week (and lol the lawyer suggests that HL might have written “a third book”). Print unit sales for the Percy Jackson books are over 22 million. Wonder has sold over 1.2 million copies, and the Day the Crayons Came Home, a picture book, has sold over 827k copies since its release. Both Paper Towns and the Descendantscontinue to sell well, long after the movie and book release. The first two books in the School for Good and Evil have soldover 216k copies. For kidlit, Paper Towns and Unbroken are among the bestselling books of 2015 so far. And here are somesales predictions and interviews with booksellers.

Robyn Schneider is doing well, she theorizes, in part because she’s capitalized on her youtube fanbase.

Yay, another controversial thing said by Jonathan Franzen. I’m also even less tempted to read Purity because of this: “I’m not a sexist. I am not somebody who goes around saying men are superior, or that male writers are superior. In fact, I really go out of my way to champion women’s work that I think is not getting enough attention. None of that is ever enough. Because a villain is needed. It’s like there’s no way to make myself not male….. Speaking about a character in his forthcoming novel, Purity – a fanatical feminist who, among other things, forces her husband to urinate sitting down on the toilet to atone for his maleness – Franzen predicted that she would enrage his critics; in fact, she already has.” Boohoo to you and your male privilege (there’s no way to make myself not male). I’d heard good things about his novels, but this is ridiculous.

An author queried under a male name. Here are the results. (See Franzen? “None of that is ever enough.” Well, looking at those kind of results, you would know why…)

Rose Lerner wrote a letter to the RWA protesting the nomination of For Such a Time, a Book of Esther retelling inspired romance about a Nazi and a Jewish woman, for an award. Several authors wrote excellent follow-ups to this, as shown in this one. RWA responded. Salon covered the issue as well (their subtitle is particularly astute: That a Christian publisher thought this novel was a good idea tells you quite a bit about Christian publishing… though of course there is much more to the issue than that).

Holly Black will be writing a new YA trilogy. With Little Brown -- “The first book in The Folk of Air Trilogy, The Cruel Prince, will be published in the winter of 2018, with two still-untitled books to follow... “This series will delve deeper into the strange, glittering, malicious courts of Faerie than I’ve gone before… While The Darkest Part of the Forest introduced readers to the faerie world, The Folk of Air Trilogy will bring that world a step closer...This new series...focuses on “a young human girl who witnesses her parents’ deaths and is forcibly taken to Faerieland with her two sisters—one faery, one human—where she will grow up and one day fight to gain power.”

Great news for kidlit! The New York Times bestseller list has been altered to separate out MG & YA hardcovers (aka debut authors, series starters, etc.) from MG & YA paperbacks (aka the books and authors who have been on the list for a very long time). Here’s to hoping that in the future, they will also separate MG & YA into separate series lists!

This book can apparently help your child fall asleep.

Sam Heughan from Outlander will reading The Fiery Trial (Shadowhunter books). o.O

A brief weekly summary of industry and author events: August 27th, August 20th, July 23rd, July 16th, July 9th, July 2nd,June 25th

ALA was a while ago, but you can still see photos.

We Need Diverse Books is changing its organizational structure.

Macmillan is using the release of Katherine Appelgate’s Crenshaw to get bookstores to host food drives (National Crenshaw Food Drive).

Likewise, Harlequin Teen has been getting creative for the social media campaign for Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman.

A lot of social media campaigns, like the one used for Daughter of Smoke and Bone, involve unlocking extra content.

Huh, I didn’t know much about Violent Ends - that it’s a novel with different perspectives/voices written by various authors and edited by Shaun Hutchinson about a school shooting.

Random House has queued its First in Line program (similar to Penguin’s First to Read).

How do you engage lifelong readers?

Not only has Side Effects May Vary hit the NYT list, but Julie Murphy’s Dumplin’ is striking a chord with readers.

The hybrid of pictures and prose in The Marvels seems to be working out well.

The same goes for The School of Good and Evil, which is reaching its end with the publication of book 3.

Brendan Kiely and Jason Reynolds wrote a YA novel to confront race issues (I know I’m really looking forward to All American Boys -- and I loved getting to read about how their collaboration first started).

Ransom Riggs is going an usual tour for Library of Souls - and on that tour, he’ll be offering sneak peeks at the film adaptation.

A Wonder app that sends you daily inspiration? Yes please.

There are a lot of anticipated fall titles, but here’s what PW chose to highlight for kidlit.

Sigh. A parent complained about Courtney Summers’s book and then proceeded to make sure that no one could read it.

The boy who had nothing but “junk mail” to read, according to his mailman, sure got a surprise.

Free book vending machines? Why can’t other airlines be as awesome as JetBlue?

A back to school guide and advice from teachers and librarians.

Did you see the new Fierce Reads site?

James Patterson gave money to a bunch of libraries.

Indie bookstores are using trust to increase sales.

Ecampus.com has secured an agreement with UW-Milwaukee, similar to what Amazon has with other colleges for textbooks.

How a picture book became an overnight sensation.

Patrick Ness started out a fundraiser for Syrian refugees that, with the help of mostly other YA authors, has raised over £200k. (JK over £500k)

Authors and booksellers are trying to get the US Dept of Justice to look into Amazon for antitrust violations. Meanwhile Apple’s appeal was denied in the ebook antitrust case.

Having Amazon around for 20 years has changed a lot about the publishing industry.

Looooooook, a new look at the illustrated HP books.

Guess how much it would’ve cost you to go to Hogwarts.

Scribd has gotten rid of some romance titles because…. people read them too much.

Story boards that address social justice.

Ahhh! So many GREAT WNDB links since I last posted for bookish rounds. Undoubtedly I have missed some things, but I hope that I’ve gotten some things that you will read with me -- first the WNDB summer list (or the holidays, now that summer is almost over) & an NBC Asian American Summer Book List & a diverse book list for kids under 5

If you’re EVER looking for resources: Teen Librarian’s Toolbox, a database of Korean American authors, where to find diverse books, building a diverse, anti-bias library for young people, diversity resources from SCWBI, this entire tumblr for writers andDahlia Adler’s resource page.

If you’re a blogger, you too can do better; we need diverse blogs.

Books by South Asian women often have similar covers for some awful reasons -- “To our surprise, we often noticed book covers being “recycled”—sometimes identical covers, or segments of one cover, would be used on another book altogether. Almost as if to suggest these very books are interchangeable, or of a series/type (which they usually are not.)”. With this experience in publishing, multicultural authors might consider self-publishing, “an empowering tool that allows writers to connect with audiences without being forced to "prove" why their experiences or their stories are valid.”

A call for diversity in comics, to end unpaid internships in publishing and build diversity. We need diverse books: we need tocombat racism through literature, YA fiction needs to embrace disability, we need diverse audiobooks - to hear diversity, we need queer escapist lit, we need diverse events, we need diverse libraries too. You can put LGBTQ books in kids hands. Asian pride in kid lit.

8 things a black kid learned growing up reading about white kids ← I read Huck Finn for school. “Classics” make me so skeptical, and if you’re a teacher creating your reading list, please take heed. Similarly -- read old classics and you realize justhow racist they can be. And here’s a librarian’s reflections on Loudness in the Library, a program getting kids to weigh in on racism and sexism.

Books help kids understand the fight for racial equality. After all, “how is a young person supposed to aspire to do well in life when they can't even be the hero of the stories that they read?". It’s hard to be what you can’t see.

There is no such thing as a race neutral character. More here.

Super cool - WNDB is launching a mentorship program! More details here.

Cover Reveals:

You can see the majority of cover reveals from these past two months in this other post.

Scripted - Maya Rock, pb redesign

*the cover reveal may have happened earlier

Yay (not). Another article bashing young adult, confusing threesomes and love triangles.

Authors discuss their favorite book boyfriends. I do believe that there are some good love triangles. Do you agree with that andthese eleven LTs as being the best, according to some YA authors?

Good reads gone bad - Kathleen Hale doesn’t seem to like Goodreads much, but for me the interesting parts of the article have to do with the sexist undertones in publishing (and reviewing) as well as the face of reviewing and how that has changed.

The 14 Stages of reading Harry Potter for the first time. Also, we’ve been saying a character’s name wrong for years.

Baby names based off your favorite children’s classics! (maybe one of the ways to get your kids to read…? but here are someinnovative ways to teach children to read)

Captain Underpants “outs” a character as being gay, with little fanfare. And there’s no bombshell reaction like with Dumbledore.

The YA Lover’s Guide to Dating Dealbreakers - haha tumblr and the book nerd quotes. So true, but also Pinterest for that.

Being a Feminist in the Kids’ Section - “I’m not talking about the bookstore I used to work at, where a manager once suggested we shelve all the children’s books into a “Girls’ Books” section or a “Boys’ Books” section. Instead, it’s this seemingly harmless question: “What do you suggest for a [AGE] [boy OR girl]?””

Skokie Library Tackles Race - “Libraries must shift our conversation from increasing diversity to talking about racial equity and adopting an antiracist framework. It is up to us to go further, even if it makes us uncomfortable, and to do more for and in our communities.”

In the months between bookish rounds posts, I was on IT for discussion posts. I discussed translated and foreign editions of YA, my sadly decreasing motivation for reading and blogging (alas that is no longer an issue! YAY), why audiobooksync is awesome, recommending series that you haven’t finished, finding quiet books, and reading books that teach you something new. I also did the Cinderella book tag. See below for what books I’ve read and what’s on my TBR!

As for book blogger discussion posts, I’m sorry - next week. This post is absurdly long as is, and I’m tired.
