Hello out there! Here’s my official little snippet for “about me” :
Yours Truly, Stephanie Whelan, is a children’s librarian with a lifelong love of all things science fiction and fantasy. After many years in my chosen profession, I have decided to share my interest in children’s SF and Fantasy through this blog.
Essentially this is a place for me to get my geek on about Science Fiction and Fantasy stuff for kids. I’ll be doing reviews, lists, and posts about different topics. It’ll all be tied into the theme of this blog in some way, though I won’t hesitate to branch out to different forms of media and events as long as they do tie in.
Given that I’m a full time New York Public Library librarian and a mom of two, I’ll have to limit my posts to between two and three a week mostly, but I’ll try to stick to delivering at least that many!
If there’s a topic you’d like to see covered, drop me a message and let me know–I’m all ears!
You can contact me via email at: email@example.com
And I’m trying out twitter as well! Find me here: @TesseractViews
I welcome the chance to review children’s Speculative Fiction (Science Fiction, Fantasy, Supernatural). Please be aware that I’m focusing on fiction for readers ages 0-12 and will not be accepting review items on anything firmly Young Adult or adult. Anything I request I will read but I cannot promise to review it. I only do a handful of reviews a month currently, so I have to pick and choose which items I will feature. I do reserve the right to post a mixed or negative review.
I’m not opposed to self-published books if they meet my criteria for the site. However given the current demands on my reading and posting time I am forced to be highly selective in what I choose to request and cannot promise a review. I’m unable to review ebook selections at this point and would require a hard copy of anything I request.
I’m always happy to take a cursory look at a book description and summary in order to make a decision on whether to request an item.
These policies may change or be revised as needed as the blog grows and demands on my time shift. Please feel free to inquire if anything is unclear.
