I’m putting the final touches on the last book in the SLAMMED series before sending it to my agent. Hopefully will have all that done by the end of October and we’ll see what happens once it gets into the hands of my publisher. If they decide to publish it, you’ll be the first to know. Then on to finishing my new standalone which I can’t stop thinking about. I’m constantly, constantly thinking about it. When I fall asleep, when I dream, when I’m awake, when I’m drinking diet pepsi, when I’m petting Hazel, when I’m driving, when I’m driving while sleeping, when Hazel is driving. If you’ve been around me recently and I just smile and nod a lot and look clueless, it’s because I’m totally ignoring you and thinking about my book.
As for the last couple of weeks…they’ve been phenominal…ly tiring. I had a freaking blast in Chicago. Should I even mention all of the awesome readers/authors/other random people I got to hang out with? For the sake of those who weren’t able to make it, I won’t talk about it.
Meh finally got tah meet thah beautiful JennAy from Australia. Krikey! That lass was a ball o’ fun! I luv yeh Jennay! And everyone else. Mostly.
As for New York.
Ahhhh, New York. Atria Books put us in a beautiful hotel and we ordered several of the thousand dollar caviar frittatas that were on the room service menu and charged them to my publicist. (Just kidding, Cristina!) 😉
Really though, it was a lot of fun. I was worried the restaurants would be too fancy and I wouldn’t know which fork to use or how to order, but I think we did okay considering it wasn’t Chili’s.
We took a double decker to Brooklyn then couldn’t find a cab to get back to Manhattan so we just walked. Little did we know once we would get back to the hotel, the elevators would be broken and we would have to make our way to the 29th floor via the freaking STAIRS! (I thought I was going to die. For real. I was worried about who would finish these books.)
But while we were walking across the Brooklyn Bridge we passed some Harlem Globetrotters. They’re the closest to famous people that I got while in NYC. Here, I got a pic. It took me a minute to get my phone out, so they were kind of far away. But they’re the super tall ones with the basketball. Obviously.
Then on Wednesday night I had my first solo book signing in Connecticut. I had a lot of fun. I want to do them all the time now!
Next up: A local one. 🙂 I’ll be at the Mt. Vernon authorfest on October 13th. Next Saturday, I think. Come!
That’s a recap of my trips. Now I’m heading into the cave.
Haha. Y’all thought I was going to leave like that? Without giving away this Kindle Fire HD? Y’all are crazy. I hit 300,000 page views this past week! That can’t go unnoticed.
In order to be entered into the drawing for the Kindle Fire HD, you must watch one of these two videos (preferably both, if you haven’t already seen them) and leave a comment ON THE VIDEO’S YOUTUBE PAGE. Not on this blog.
Repeat: Comment on the youtube link of one of the videos, not the blog. These two worked so hard on these videos and I want everyone to have the opportunity to watch them. The first one is the SLAMMED book trailer that Tough Critic Book Reviews Made. The second is one of the poems performed out of SLAMMED by the poet Marty Schoenleber.
Loved, loved, loved them.
Simple as that. Comment on youtube=entry into kindle fire HD. <3
Peace, Love and Words.
