It's Not Where I Been...But Where I'm 'Bout To Go (okay, actually, it is kind of about where I've been)

Hey all--

Ready for your updates from the road??

Friday I had a wonderful event at the Mt. Kisco Borders, just down the road from where I grew up. Pre-event, I noshed on sweet potato fries with the blogger extraordinaire Sharon, of SharonLovesBooksandCats, at the diner I used to go to with my family.

So many special people showed up to support me, including people who have known me since I was in high school, like my former boss, Mr. P, and his lovely daughter Caitlin, and my fabulous high school math teacher, and lots of old family friends (thanks, Hubers and Smiths!). My best and oldest friend, Jackie, was also there, policing the event area like a protective bulldog and making sure that nobody made any loud noises while I was speaking. Check out some pics:

The next day, after a great event in Kingston, NY, I hopped a plane to Ann Arbor, where I had a fabulous reading/signing at Borders, and met so many wonderful bloggers: Tirzah of The Compulsive Reader, Kristi of The Story Siren, Chelsea of The Page Flipper Blog, and Sara of The Hiding Spot. These lovely ladies were just as pretty and smart and fabulous as I'd imagined they would be, and we had a great time. You want photo evidence? No problemo, senorita. See below.

I think you should come to Massachusetts so I can run frantically to the bookstore and give you a huge hug and tell you how wonderful you are.

I'm sad that I missed the Ann Arbor signing. I had plans to attend but my ride fell through the day before. Boo. :( But it looks like you guys all had a blast! Fingers crossed that you'll come back to MI when Delirium comes out! :)

It all looks like SO much fun, and I'm very jealous that all these bloggers have met you and I haven't yet. Enjoy the rest of your tour, and come back and do some more events on the East Coast soon so I can meet you! :)

Aw! You look like a model! You definitely should come to Brazil, like I said once. There isn't a Brazilian author I would like to meet and this is so sad! I'm glad to hear you had fun!
