Yes you read that title correctly--I am in New York!! I actually flew in yesterday afternoon and I couldn't be more excited! Not only has visiting the world's most famous city been a dream of mine, but so has attending BEA--the world's most famous book event!
For the past several months, my friends and family and a few online pals have been asking me what I'm most excited about seeing while in The Big Apple. And without hesitation, I answer "Um, BEA, duh!" Are you kidding? A gigantic convention center filled with books on top of books and all the people who love them as much as I do? Get outta here! I can't wait to scour the aisles in search of authors and bloggers and book lovers all eager to share and express their love of books!
And to top it all off, I get to attend as an author--an ACTUAL AUTHOR!! I still feel very strange saying that out loud! haha
But it's true--I'm published!! My debut novel BLOOD BORN came out April 24th (hey, you can buy it here!), and I couldn't be happier. This has been a life-long dream of mine, and I'm so happy that even though it took a back seat for many years, I didn't give up on this dream. I definitely am not one to toot my own horn as they say, but, well... TOOT TOOT!! haha!
Okay gang, I'm off to do a bit of sight-seeing (BEA doesn't actually begin for me till tomorrow). I hope everyone has an awesome, amazing week, and if you happen to be attending BEA, please come to the Pendrell Publishing Booth 2054 and say hi!!!
