Thanks to Aarti at Booklust for announcing A More Diverse Universe, a reading event and blog tour celebrating diversity in fantasy fiction. I’m not usually one for blog tours but I think this is and extremely important event. And with R.I.P. VII happening the timing is just perfect.
From Aarti’s post:
For one week in September (the week of the 23rd), we want ALL OF YOU fantasy readers (with blogs and without) to read a fantasy novel written by a person of color. And to write a review of that book. You know as well as I do that books succeed based on word of mouth and mentions and conversation, and this is where bloggers can help the MOST. Just read one book. And share your thoughts on that one book.
I plan on reading several books written by people of color for R.I.P. VII. There are links to a wide selection of authors and book titles in Aarti’s post. Please join us and spread the word.
