elizabethdelanarosa said: I love your blog. The book covers are amazing. I own a publishing company and am looking for more POC authors. (Besides myself, I'm Latin X.) Do you know any? I currently have one cover that is POC for contemporary fiction but am working on another for a fantasy. Keep up the good work.
I know many, many other authors of color read/follow this blog… and they can speak for themselves.
Hey, authors of color, time to let elizabethdelanarosa know about you!
In addition to designing the Brooklyn Defender this year, NYCC asked me to illustrate something they can use for their anti-harrassment signs around the convention floor. The smart idea would probably have been to draw one character in my style, for recognition’s sake, but I had this idea in my head and really wanted to try something new. I wanted it to be modular, so they could change it and use bits as they like. And I wanted it to feel inclusive. No one wants to be harassed.
I talk about this, the Brooklyn Defender, and Rocket Girl in this awesome interview with The Mary Sue!
This just in from sharp-eyed Smiley Bone.
In 1947, ten cartoonists drew their characters blind-folded. Can you dig it? Wanna try it?
I love you, Catwoman.

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
I think I agree with everything James Kochalka says in this video.
