Quick Update – Live!!! From New York!



First of all my sincere apologies for appearing that I had dropped off the face of the earth, was eaten by a bear,  or had taken a vow of silence.  I am alive, and well, and in New York for the Book Expo, my fourth year attending.

In past years I have been able to at least put up morning posts letting you know what is going on, who I am seeing and where I have been.  This year it seems like I am running even harder from early in the morning (up around 6 am) and dropping back into my hotel bed of way too many pillows around 11 pm or so.  When I get up I seem to have no time to write and at night I am way too tired to write.  The reason I am able to write this post is that I took a little break from the expo this afternoon to put my aching feet up a bit and chill before I go and mail books home and hit it again.

I will do a day by day recap once I am home but for now let me give you highlights of what you will be hearing more about in future posts:

  • A wet wet entrance into New York
  • Frozen Hot Chocolate
  • Joshilyn Jackson in person!
  • Books… oh books!
  • Adrianna here and there and then at her house for breakfast.
  • 4 event Thursday- Simon Schuster, Workman, Penguin Bash, and SimonTeen
  • The City Of Bones Party!!!  SQQQUUUUEEEEE
  • The Expo
  • New York and New Yorkers….anything goes
  • Post Office win!

and more to come.  Anyhoo – I am alive, I am tired but well and good things and pictures to come 😀

    I am seriously going to see if I can work it in this next year!! 🙂 Can’t wait to read all of your posts!


  11. Sounds like you are having a blast!

  12. Sounds like you’re having a wonderful time. Ah, the Adriana breakfast, such a pity I had to miss it. I sent my invitation on to my on-line friend Susan Tunis and she says for her, it was the best event of the whole of BEA – you must have met her there (I never have).

    Hope you have a good last day and a good flight back. Looking forward to a more detailed update.

  13. Sounds like you are having a very exciting time in New York. Count me jealous because New York is kind of my dream. And I know I’ll get there eventually. It might not necessarily be for such an awesome reason, but I will get there. Until then, I’ll live vicariously through all the wonderful BEA attendees!

  14. It does seem like this year was crazier than ever! I loved seeing you again!

  15. I’m so happy you’ve had a great time! It seems like the place to be 🙂 I have seen lots of photos on Tiwtter, with bloggers who finally meet, and the fun they’re all having – and ALL the books 🙂

    I look forward to seeing more of what you did during BEA when you get back home and back to the normal rhythm again.

  16. Looking forward to your day-by-day BEA posts!

  17. I got to meet Shelia in person. 🙂 She is a fabulous person and a lot of fun, but I am sure everyone already knew that.

    We met by chance in the line for the Book Bloggers Conference on Wednesday. 🙂

    Have a great day.
