ALA - mid-winter 2013
No, that's not the halftime concession stand at the Superbowl... that's the lobby on a quiet morning at ALA-mid-winter.
Now I know why I work at home alone in slippers. I did have two or three books on the racks there, if you dug deep enough you might have seen them. But despite all the ruckus, I had a great time.
One disadvantage of being in Seattle is that it is 2,000 miles to New York and the east coast, where most of the publishers are. So I relish every opportunity to get together with REAL editors in person. I met with the wonderful editors I even landed a connection that resulted in a new picture book with Blue Apple Books!
