R U Published? "Yes!" Says The Class of 2k7

The Fire Escape is delighted to introduce the Class of 2k7, a group of 37 first-time children's and YA authors from 21 states and D.C. with debut books from different publishers coming out in 2007. Welcome, 2k7-ers, to the hard-earned but delightful place of nodding when the inevitable question comes after you introduce yourself as a writer. Let me know if there are any books between cultures on your list, and I'm looking forward to checking out your blog, too.

Thanks, Mitali, for giving us 2k7ers a shout-out! It's a thrill to join the "writer club"...

Hi, Mitali! The Class of 2k7 have arrived!

Rose Kent's book, KIMCHI AND CALAMARI, is a cross-cultural book you might be especially interested in. Sure there are others.

Don't worry, it's not just the "cross-cultural" ones I'm looking forward to reading -- I've already read and loved "Tall Tales" by Karen Day, and can't wait to peruse many, many of your books. There's something amazing about a first book -- it's sort of like a first kiss.
