Every once in a while I get to go on a trip I’m so excited about I almost don’t want to go because then it’ll be over. In less than a week, I’ll be leaving on one of those trips.
|I took this from the top of the Empire State Building in 2007.|
Starting Thursday afternoon, I will be in NYC for ten glorious days! The trip is a combination of things starting with a family vacation, moving into a business trip, and ending with a visit at my friend’s house in Brooklyn. It will be fabulous and I plan on filling up more than one memory card with photos while I’m there! 🙂
The centerpiece of the visit, though, is definitely the week-long fun of Book Expo America, one of the largest book and publishing related events in the world and the ultimate gathering of booksellers, authors, and industry pros from all over the planet.I’ll get to meet agents, editors, authors, and other awesome people through a series of conferences, lunches, and events. Plus, there will be a couple hundred booths with information, ARCs, and other goodies. People bring empty suitcases with them to this event just to cart home all the stuff they collect during the trip! And to make an already amazing thing even better, I’ll be spending the week with the beautiful Lani Woodland! I haven’t seen Lani in person since… 2008, I think? So, in other words, it’s been WAY too long.
If I have the chance, I’ll post during my trip, but otherwise I’ll do a detailed recap when I come home. Is anyone else going to be there? Come join the fun!
