Thanks to Reading in Color for featuring Nice and Mean as a WoW (Waiting on Wednesday) pick! Reading in Color led the campaign against the whitewashing of covers in the publishing industry. (Whitewashing: when a character of color is shown on the cover as being white so that white folks won’t get alienated and buy a different novel. Read more about it here.) Ari, who runs the blog, astounds me for being so widely read in books new and classic, featuring original and vital memes like Male Monday and Throwback Thursday. It is truly an honor to be included as a WoW pick. Thank you, Ari!
I might also add that, frankly, I am waiting, too–not On Wednesday, but On June 8, when Nice and Mean will finally be released. Into the wild! For readers to read! It’s been a 17-month-long wait. Let the lovin’ begin!
In the meantime, though, it sure is nice to see others are waiting excitedly along with me. Now, go to Reading in Color and check out some other books you should be reading!
ps That is not me up there in the photo. It is some marketer in New York. I actually had to do two searches to find an image with “WOW,” because all the original results featured World of Warcraft!
