I did some serious stalking in LA, people.

I had all of these dreamy authors autograph their books. Can I just say I almost started crying when Sonya Sones wrote, "Welcome to the fold!" in WHAT MY GIRLFRIEND DOESN'T KNOW? (Thanks to YUCKY VALENTINES, we now share a publishing house.)

And that snazzy disco ball? It came from none other than the remarkable Merman himself, Jay Asher. I now keep it on the shelf above my beloved computer. To me it symbolizes the fun and sparkle of being a children's book writer. (Such a trinket will come in handy for me to take a look at on those thunk-thunk-thunking my head on my desk days.)

I didn't jump out from behind any potted plants and thrust books in people's faces or anything. :) Hmmm...maybe next year. :)

that's good--i think a simple, 'will you sign my book?' will usually do. =)

It's not easy making the Tammi Stack. I'm pretty cheap and only buy what I LOOOOOOOOVE. :)

Welcome to the sandwich.

Dude -- great photo. My pile is decidedly larger. And not all here yet, since I mailed some of them home to avoid ridiculously heavy luggage. (I took a rather large pile out there with me, and then bought some more books when I was there.)

Ha!

I brought some of them with me and bought a couple others while I was there. I was always conscious of the weight of my luggage. I knew I had a couple of pounds of wiggle room. It was all very mathematical. :)

Aw, man, all your posts and photos make me so sad I wasn't there. But I do have a plan to go next year. Will you be there? It would be so cool to meet you and the other angels.

You didn't follow any authors or editors into the ladies' room, did you? :>)

Ha!

No, but it turns out an editor approached ME in the ladies' room. While I was washing my hands, the lovely woman next to me was washing her hands. She glanced at my name tag and introduced herself. It turns out she's the assistant to the editor who gave me the revision request on my novel. :)
