This week I was at BookExpo America and BookCon, both giant book shows held in the Javits Center in New York. My family came in, because my publisher had done something special for me, and I wanted McIrish and the kids to see it. My banner. I got quite choked up when I saw it. So did McIrish. : )
Here are a few other things I got to do while in New York…
Thanks so, so much to everyone who came to BEA and BookCon! It was utterly thrilling. There’s no other word for it.
Got to have dinner with my great friend, Robyn Carr, and the family!
Got to say hi to all these wonderful people who stood in line to get a book from me…Thank you so much, folks! It’s such an honor for me!
Got to see the beautiful and funny Mindy Kaling and snap this picture just before Security told me to scram.
I got to pretend to be the publicist for my friend, Katy Lee. It was easy; she’s up for a Daphne and a RITA this year in romantic suspense.
Also got to shill for Regina Kyle, another friend, by holding up her book and saying, “Steamy and delicious!” to all the appropriate-age people who walked by.
