Summer Blog Blast Tour, Day 1

And it’s the Summer Blog Blast Tour 2011!

New to the Blog Blast Tour?

Twice a year, during one week, children’s and young adult book bloggers interview a mix of authors. Each day, Chasing Ray will have highlights from each interview, along with direct URLs. In addition, the participating bloggers link and cross link to the various blogs and interviews.
