Wow. The big reveal is today. I can't believe it.
My sooper sekrit project is a second blog called Asia in the Heart, World on the Mind. Asia in the Heart, World on the Mind is a children's and young adult blog about books set in Asia and books with Asian characters (regardless of where they are published and whether or not their authors and illustrators are Asian), and Asian authors and illustrators (no matter where they are in the world). I started the blog because of the sheer pleasure I get from such books and from getting to know such authors and illustrators.
Also, there aren't enough blogs highlighting Asian children's and young adult books. This needs to change.
I am not going to abandon Into the Wardrobe. Into the Wardrobe will remain my more general children's and young adult book blog.
I'm launching the new blog with interviews of two Filipino writers: Perpilili Vivienne Tiongson, the author of "I Hate My Mother!", and Candy Gourlay, the author of Tall Story. Coming soon: blog posts on the children's and young adult book scene in Hong Kong and South Korea! (I've also cross-posted a lot of relevant Into the Wardrobe posts over at the new blog.)

P.S. Carlo Angelo Canlas (firstname.lastname@example.org) designed both my blogs. Isn't he awesome? =D
