Catching up!!

It's been nearly a month since my last blog post and I have a very good reason for the long radio silence! I caught a bad case of summer brain that essentially turned me into a zombie. Well, a zombie/chauffeur who's sole existence was to drive the Oh kids to a seemingly endless array of sports, health, school, and party time related activities. Needless to say, I'm quite happy the kids are back in school. However, I do have some fun things to report. Well, they were fun for me at least! I went back up to NYC and met up with my new editor and my first editor and my agent and my buddy Alana, Harper marketing guru extraordinaire! Here's me and Alana! She is not only the coolest person in the world, but she has the most stunning hair!

I met my new editor Alyson who is super cool and super nice and I am truly blessed to have Prophecy, Warrior, and King in her fantastic editorial hands.

I also got the opportunity to meet up with my first editor, the one and only Phoebe, who is now Publisher and VP of Crown Books for Young Readers, Random House! Seriously an amazing promotion for someone who I think is one of the best editors in all of NYC! This promotion is  so well deserved and I couldn't be happier for her!

Phoebe then took me to dinner with Soman Chainani, author of the amazing SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL, a book that is simply one of my absolute favorite reads of the year! I have been in such awe of Soman because I think he is just a brilliant writer. And I've been telling Phoebe how much I want to meet him in person (we've been communicating via email for months!). So she made it happen! He is seriously as nice and as funny as I expected him to be! And I tried to bribe him into letting me get a sneak peek of book 2, but I haven't been successful yet...

I realized after the fact that I didn't have a picture with me and my agent, Joe, which bummed me out! He took me to this fantastic breakfast restaurant up on the upper west side and then we walked from 86th to 66th just chatting up a storm! It is always so great to see him in person and catch up. Joe's knowledge of the industry is amazing. I'd seriously be lost without him!

One last interesting thing that happened this summer was a Lucky 13 event at the Bethesda library! It was awesome to see these amazing Luckies all in one place! Stephanie Kuen, Kelly Fiore, Elisabeth Dahl, Cristin Terrell, and Alex Lidell. These ladies are all awesome and they were a really interesting panel to listen to! Also, we got to hang out and have dinner together which is always the best part of author get togethers! (FYI - I know I'm wearing another black and white top but it is not the same top as in NY. I just have a lot of black and white clothes.)


So that's all the news that's fit to print - or post! I'll be back with a giveaway of some WARRIOR ARCs! Stay tuned!!

I'm so glad I wasn't the only zombie driving mom this summer. I'm glad school started too.

Loved your pictures.

Before you begin going through cash, go to your wardrobe. Take a stock of what you effectively possess. Make a rundown of the things of dress you need. Slender these things of attire down to what is generally significant and start from that point. Satta King

Actually, this goes for any remark you leave. Try not to make a propensity for leaving sayings and little remarks for leaving them. Have something genuine to state or don't utter a word by any means.
