Tu Publishing Changes Hands

A friend and commenter emailed this to me and I wanted to share it, since I've mentioned Tu Publishing before (and how much I wish they took adult titles). 

Lee & Low has a new imprint, Tu Books, now open for unsolicited submissions. They'd like diverse fantasy and science fiction for middle graders and young adults--particularly, SFF that features people of color as main characters, for ages 8-18. If you fit that age range, genre, etc., and your novel is finished (polished and ready for publication) go to their guidelines page for more details on how to submit.

Thanks again, Colleen!
