Let's see if I can write a blog post in fifteen minutes before I have to go get my hair did. Because when I come back, it's all SHINE, all the time, until tomorrow night...
...when I'll be at Between Books in Claymont, Delaware, 7-9pm. Claymont is just over the Delaware border from Pennsylvania, so think of it as a Philadelphia/Wilmington-area signing. It's been months since the two states took down that wall of fiery snakes separating their kingdoms. I think.
Anyway, I hear there'll be a bunch of Philly area bloggers and authors showing up. Clearly they don't know that when I sign books, I bring tornadoes. Oh well.
Then next week I'll be at Book Expo America on Tuesday only. Here's my jam-packed schedule:
9:30-10am, Booth 3774. Signing and giving away copies of SHIFT. That's right, they're free! I plan to set up as soon as the exhibit hall opens at 9am, so hopefully I can start signing at 9:15. I think there'll be two boxes of books, which is 48 copies, so that's a little over one book a minute. Sadly, not much time to chat with each reader.
BUT if you want to talk more, I'll be signing NYX IN THE HOUSE OF NIGHT, 2-3pm, at booth 4411 (SmartPop/BenBella books). That should be a much less hectic signing, since it's for an hour, so please come say hi.
Also, after the early signing is over at 10am, I will be jonesing for coffee. So that's probably where you'll find me.
Beyond that, I'm having lunch with my agent, dinner with friends, and going to a publisher party. Then early Wednesday morning it's back on the train to meet my June 1 deadline.
I did it! With zero minutes to spare. Whew.
