What do you do when one of your favorite bookstores asks you to sit behind a table with Benedict Carey, Michael Northrop, R.J. Palacio, Marie Rutkoski and Maryrose Wood? You say YES, of course!
So, at noon, I inconceivably found myself in the middle of this amazing line-up. My main goal? To absorb everything these seasoned authors said and did like a sponge. My secondary goal: not to make a complete fool of myself as the noob who had been a published author all of 4 days!
|I also talk with my hands.|
|When else in life does one get to make one's sister (and cousin) wait in line to get something signed by her?|
|With my parents. They were very smiley. It was pretty adorable.|
|With Stacy Cantor Abrams -- editor extraordinaire who made MAPMAKER and this whole night possible.|
But I gotta tell you...I slept pretty soundly that night!
