I would be completely and totally lying if I said I wasn’t nervous about the big event tonight. It’s my first book event, and there are all those, What if I trip/What if the strap on my dress breaks/What if weeping angel statue aliens descend on the bookstore and steal my life force? fears, (I’ve been watching a lot of Doctor Who, and that episode was TERRIFYING!*).
But, I’m also completely and totally excited and so thrilled to see people I haven’t seen in a very long time, and meet people I know from the internets in person for the very first time. And I’m also thrilled to meet new people who think it might be fun to show up to see some girl with messy hair read from a book with a big German Shepherd on the cover, because, if you think that way, I just automatically like you.
Okay, so I have to go make myself look more presentable than my usual yoga pants/writing sweater now, but I’ll leave you with lots of links. Thank you so much to everyone who has been supporting STAY. Every one of these links have made me smile and cry and feel so honored. I put myself out there, and you guys offered up so much kindness in return. I love you so much for it. Thank you!!!!!!
I’ll try to tweet a few pictures from the event.
Melissa Senate (You NEED to read THE SECRET OF JOY, by the way. It’s wonderful!)
Mindi Scott (Look for her novel, FREEFALL in October 2010!)
