Spent 14 hours in NYC yesterday and was so exhausted that I didn't write my Friday post before going to sleep. But, what a wonderful day! Started with coffee at Simon & Schuster and a wonderful conversation about upcoming books from debut authors and some fun new directions more established authors are taking. Then, lunch with my editor at Viking which was a true delight. We both have arts backgrounds and it felt like I was meeting up with an old friend. I am SO happy to be working on AUDITION with her and feel even more certain that my manuscript found the right home. Finally, dinner with a friend from Tor Books (super-yummy Indian vegetarian restaurant to which I am definitely returning) and more fun book talk about writing series, online book publicity, and a million other fun topics. Seriously, this post would be a mile long if I wrote about all this stuff now but I'll cover some of the discussions in upcoming Monday Book Biz posts.
