Tip of the Day: Two tips today! #1 Come to my first signing on Sunday, 10:30-11:30 at ALA (McCormick Center West, booth 1811). #2 Check out the list of authors at ALA this weekend.
I was trying to think of what to blog about this week but all I can think about is ALA!!! It starts tomorrow in Chicago! I don't know if you can tell from all the !!!! but I'm very excited!
This is my first authorly event EVER. I've been to lots of events as part of the audience but now I'm on the author side! I will be one those people with a magical badge around her neck that opens doors to...well, I'm not sure. I've always wondered what those badges let authors get into. I'm thinking it's a pass to a super fancy cafe on the 100th floor of some building where there are fountains of iced latte in every corner. And I have a really big cup.
Like I said, it starts tomorrow night for me with a dessert party hosted by FSG and Roaring Brook. I'm soooo excited because I'll get to meet people from my publisher and other FSG authors. Then on Sunday I'll be at the YALSA Coffee Klatch meeting TONS of librarians. The coffee klatch is like a speed dating type of thing and we (look at the list (Scroll down to Sunday) of AMAZING authors going to this thing! I can't believe I get to be there with them!) spend five minutes at each table of attendants talking about our books. I'll also finally get to meet Lisa (Miss Crafting a Career) in person since she will also be doing the coffee klatch. Yay! Right after that I'll be signing arcs at the FSG booth (1811) from 10:30-11:30. I spent a chunk of time on Friday hunting down the perfect pens so I think I'm ready.
And the last thing I'm SUPER excited about? MY COVER!! I have the official, real thing now and it's awesome. Check it out:
If you are attending ALA, stop by the FSG booth on Sunday morning and say hi (and snag one of my arcs!)!Kristina, Miss Delighted to Debut
