I’m posting a day early this week because I’m leaving for BEA tomorrow (and I always feel kind of pretend when I schedule a post in advance).
I’m so excited. I almost went to BEA two years ago, when FRESHMAN was coming out, and the publisher for that book said they’d fly me out to BEA. I was so excited. Then. My doctor said nope. I was pregnant at the time and I always deliver early and he thought it wasn’t a good idea. So I stayed home. I was fine with it. Much as I love my books, they are not my babies. And then Boy 3 arrived one month later and all was well and everything turned out just peachy.
But I do remember saying to my husband, “I am a little sad because I probably won’t ever have this chance again.”
So I’m feeling very lucky that I do have the chance, thanks to the fantastic people at Penguin.
And I’m also feeling very floored by the amount of people who entered to win the ARC of MATCHED, because at this time, two years ago, I had a contest for a giveaway of FRESHMAN and 13 people commented. And now we have 175+.
That is awesome. Wow. Now if I could just find some clothes for BEA that don’t scream “I’m a mom and I’m in over my head here in NYC!”
I will be back next week with a full BEA report and the contest winner. Thank you all for entering and for being so supportive!
