Book Expo America: Author Speed Dating

Last week I attended BOOK EXPO AMERICA where I took part in the event "Speed Dating With Children's Authors!"

19 different authors (including myself) moved from table to table, spending time chatting at each table with over 100 librarians, book store owners, and other book professionals from across the country. It was a lot of fun, even though I had to talk my way into the event because I didn't have a badge! I was shocked to hear that many of the attendees had already read my book. Now if only I can save enough money to do a proper book tour...

Publishers Weekly posted a complete article about the event here. And I'd like to say a special thanks Kurt for passing out my stickers and such until I ran out!

In other news...
Abrams art director Chad Beckerman posted a nice blog entry about my event at BookCourt! Complete with a bunch of new photos. Thanks, Chad!

This Saturday 4-5:00 is my last event in New York for a while! At WORD Books in Greenpoint. We'll be making portraits out of WORDS. Click here for more info!

  1. I mad a match with someone who I thought was totally my type! I'm so pleased with everything about Your speedDating, I totally recommend it to everyone.
    I met nice, attractive women. Didn't have to ask for any numbers, that was definitely a plus.
