Wow. NYC so far.....

SO far, NYC is completely, totally amazing. I am rooming with Rhonda Stapleton and Julie Linker, two totally fun and crazy girls. We had a blast last night walking around looking for a dinner locale, and then we also met up with Lauren Barnholdt, and headed toward time square. (awe-inspiring. Truly!)

Yesterday's lunch with my YA editor and my agent was almost surreal. I've worked with Zoe for 3 years now, and meeting her and sitting next to her was crazy. I got to tour the Razorbill offices, where I met the head of the imprint Ben, and we all sat down and talked about Prada & Prejudice for a bit. They say they are thrilled with how well it's doing and that it is "rare for a book to get this kind of response," which made me want to jump up and squeal, but fear not, I just nodded my head and smiled like a psych ward patient instead.

Today I met up with my harlequin/romance editor, and she was so much fun. We totally clicked and talked about tons of work and non-work things, and laughed about a lot of silly things. It was so much fun. Afterward I walked over to Ground Zero, where they are currently constructing things like CRAZY. There must be HUNDREDS, maybe thousands of people employed just becuaes they are building something to replace the towers. I also wandered over to Wall Street and saw the New York Stock Exchange. Then I went to the gigantic Macy's store and wandered the zillion floors, and bought a cute shirt to wear for drinks night tonight.

This is the coolest drip ever. I am doing the things I dreamt of years ago. And tommorrow's signing is still to come!

Don't forget if you live near NYC: I'll be at Books of Wonder tommorrow from 2 to 4!! More details are here.

Now, off to take a shower and get ready for drinks night!
