Have fun! I wish I were going to the RWA conference. I love meeting authors, and NYC is a great city. One of my favorite authors, Meg Cabot, is the emcee for the RITA Awards this year. Should be a fun night because she’s a hoot.
Wow, you are busy! I’ll be at the RWA book signing Tuesday, will def. drop by your table, I’m looking forward to meeting you – finally you’re in NYC! Yay!
Thanks for coming to ALA and signing books! Enjoyed meeting you and getting my book autographed. You signed one for a friend too and she was thrilled with it when I got back. Hope to see you amongst the librarians at another conference. 🙂
