Good morning! This morning In New York is warm and overcast. I am in the hotel lobby having my COFFEE of course, oatmeal and scrambled eggs. I feel good.
Yesterday was another whirlwind day. We were at the convention by 8 am and I spent my morning and early afternoon talking to publishers and authors. Grabbed a few books along the way – shipped two boxes of books home and will have a third to do that same with today.
At 2:00 pm Kathy from Bermuda Onion, and I, met with author Sarah Pekkanen. She is just a wonderful,fun, full of likfe person. We went to her publishers office at Simon and Schuster and were toured by the assistant to her editor. We sat in the editors office, and were each given a bag of new released or soon to be released books. (Oh, but more on that later!)
We were back at the convention center by 4 pm where I met my two newest of the roomies – Kim from Sophisticated Dorkiness and Care from Care Online Bookclub. Both are super fun!
We were at the Blogger gathering from 4 to 6 pm and it was a nice mix between authors and bloggers and I just had a lot of fun mingling and meeting.
Afterwards we all gathered back at the hotel and Esme (Chocolates and Croissants) had an invite from an author for all of us to join them for dinner so we did. That was a lot of fun as they asked us questions on blogging, reviews, tips for authors and marketing. Did I mention I just the mix of authors and publishers and the conversations between us all. It’s like we are one big team!
Then back to our room for a wonderful earlier night then we have been having. I think we were all zonked out by 10:30 pm.
Today is the Blogger Convention and I am excited to see the panels and take notes. I am charging up Flip Video and have my camera ready to go! Hope you are all having fun – would love to hear what you have going for the weekend!
