Book Expo America was at the Javits Center in NYC over the weekend, so I took a break from the knitting on Friday and went to look at books.
Lots and lots and lots of books! I had never been before and a lot of people I know in the publishing industry said it was smaller than last year, but I couldn't believe all the publishers and printers and PR folks and authors who were there.
Two books in particular I was maybe looking for...
And there they were! In the Andrews McMeel booth, just where I was hoping they would be. I got to meet my publicist from AMP up close and personal for the first time, so that was a lot of fun. And I got some quality time with my agent, whose office is four hours away from mine, so that was good too.
I of course want to bask in the glow of Hooked for Life and DIY Afghans both being finished and just starting to make their way into the world - everyone I spoke to Friday wants to know what book I am doing next! I guess I have to do some pondering on that topic, but not until after I get back from TNNA.
