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.)
