I am sooo happy.

Lee & Low Books, an independent children's book publisher focusing on diversity, has just acquired Tu Publishing, a new independent press for multicultural science fiction and fantasy for children and young adults.

Lee & Low Books is my FAVORITE publisher (I keep waiting for them to drop the ball, but they NEVER DO) and I am so stoked that their new imprint, Tu Books, will feature science fiction and fantasy with characters of color set in worlds inspired by non-Western cultures. Woohoo!

Writers, what are you waiting for? Tu Books is open for submissions and the first books are slated for 2011. =D
