Morning Meanderings: Awkward Moments At The Book Expo
Good morning from New York! I have not dropped off the face of the earth, I have just been running from morning to night at the Book Expo in New York.
I have MANY things to share with you once I come home about the expo, the books, the people, the events… but for now… just a funny little story and a couple of pics for Saturday Snapshot. 🙂
So… on Wednesday at the Blogger Convention, author Maureen Johnson was the keynote speaker. At the beginning of her talk she mentions the book 50 Shades Of Gray. Alison from Alison’s Book Marks and I have a joke about that book so I put on Twitter “20 minutes in and already a mention of 50 Shades Of Gray” and tagged Alison. (I did not realize due to poor internet reception that this tweet did not post but went into drafts instead.)
Anyhoo…. flash forward to yesterday morning and Alison and I are at the Children’s breakfast which was AMAZING with moderator, Jason Segel. (Yes! That Jason Segel!) I put on Twitter that I am at the Children’s Breakfast at the book expo. Then Twitter pops up on my phone and says
“you have drafts to send would you like to send them now?”
I click yes… and before I know it, following my “I am at the Children’s Breakfast at the book Expo” tweet is…
“20 minutes in and already a mention of 50 Shades Of Gray”
Anyhoo… today is my last day at the expo. I am heading that way in about an hour to wrap up a few things but for my Saturday Snapshot post I thought I would send a couple of pics your way…. also, please see my posts at Armchair BEA where I have interviewed a couple of authors and publishing houses. 😀
Catch you back in Minnesota!
