It was a fantastic time and I have to thank David Levithan, the world's most fantastic human, for making sure I got there this year. Coaxing a hermit is not the easiest task. David, you can now add 'hermit coaxer' to your long list of talents.
Random Pictures from NYC:
Thank you Alice Pope! This is me, and four of the smartest people I have ever met...Aaron Hartzler, Marissa Calin, Jacqueline Woodson and David Levithan. It was a great panel.
|We call this: I'm looking at you, NYPL.|
|While this may seem like a typical snapshot of a subway sign,|
what it really is, is: a scene from the book I'm writing right now.
|I would like to thank whoever wrote this on the trashcan in the|
bathroom at McNally Jackson Bookstore.
I was struggling with a name for a character and I now have one.
|I want this sign.|
I want it 12 feet from my head at all times.

|I thought it was spooky, so I shared.|
That's me. Thank you to all of you who came out to see us in NYC and to those who came to Books of Wonder for the awesome Sunday signing, wow! You all rock. Thanks for making that trip.
I'll be back before I go to LA to say some more stuff if I have stuff to say.
But mostly, I'll be writing.
I do have a soup recipe to share. I also want to talk to you about business suits and if authors ever wear them.
Also, I want to talk about racism and I will have to talk about V-Day, rape, and the Vagina Monologues because ours are happening the first weekend of May and it's been a while and I have a lot to say about that these days. For now, here's a great article I read about it.
