I'm in New York!

And yet I'm posting on my blog. It's like magic. Yes, I'm a dork. I'm still enamored with the fact that I can send posts into the future. I wish there was a way to do this with texting. I constantly think of things I want to text people at 1o'clock in the morning. And since I don't know who sleeps with their cell phones, I think, "If only there were a way to schedule this really important text to be sent at 9am' because I don't want to wake my friends. Am I the only one who does this? Hmmm. Maybe I better move on before I start typing more things that nobody else but me does.

So anyway, while you're reading this, I'm on a plane to New York to meet with the Harper Teen team. I'm so excited to meet the people who've helped me make my book a book. They're going to fill me in on the plans going forward and I'll get to pick their brains about marketing and such. And by 'pick their brains' I mean, 'forget everything I was going to say the minute I'm in front of all of them'. Then I'll stare at them with a huge, creepy smile on my face until they all look at each other uncomfortably. I hope that doesn't happen. That's my nightmare. Actually, the nightmare I've had for the past two nights in a row is that I wake up late and miss my airplane. Because I have a really early flight and I am not a morning person. So here's hoping I don't turn off my alarm.

And as for this week of scheduled blog posts, I have some really cool things to share with you. Wednesday, I'm going to show you some fun book related artwork I had a friend put together for me for this trip. And then Friday!!! Friday, I get to reveal my cover over at YA Book Central! I can't wait for you to see it. I love it so much!
