BookExpo America (BEA)’s NY Book Week - BEA - BookExpo America
I'm so jealous to be missing all the fun but alas, this is just one of those weeks when my "real" job must trump my fantasy world.
There’s a Teen Author Carnival going on at the Mulberry Street Library in NY. They’ve got giveaways, panels, Q&A and more with and more than 25 Young Adult authors are onsite to sign their books. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not so deluded to think that I would have a line of people awaiting signatures, but I would love to be part of the action. Meeting fellow authors, exchanging experiences, tips, advice, and supporting an event that promotes teen lit is a perfect event for me. I’d love to spend some time with other teen lit enthusiasts and meet some of the new authors on the scene.
That said, I am blogging from my hotel room, wishing I had a bit more time to work on Book 2 while A Marked Past is in review with the proofreader. I suppose, I fancy myself a bit of Halfling, not a hobbit, but instead, a well-dressed consultant with a set of fairy wings etched on her back. If you see my head bowed this week seeming in consideration of a new technical solution, or a system enhancement, and my lips are laced with a crooked smile, my mind might just be wandering beyond the spreadsheets and into to the streets of New York to the Carnival quietly longing to be part of the action.
