ALA 2012 was SO MUCH fun! I seriously think it’s one of my favorite events every year. There’s nothing better than hanging with author friends & meeting librarians, bloggers, and readers. I’m not one of those authors who writes for themselves. It’s easier for me to write for someone & every time I meet one of you, you become one of my someones. So thank you. x
I also loved catching up with friends I don’t see enough and swapping secret projects & shaing drinks with umbrellas in them. Then there was lunch with my agent, Jodi Reamer (whom I adore) an AMAZING signing at the Little, Brown booth, visiting with my editor, Julia Scheina, and BAGS of ARCs = new reading material! I’m in the middle of sorting through them right now, asking my favorite question: What should I read next?
