Those three letters pretty much say it all. Well, almost. Let's just say when June 1st rolled around, my heart was beating a mile a minute. My palms were sweaty. I gnawed my teeth. I kept googling my name and book title to see if any reviews had posted.
Is this normal for someone? My family insists I'm obsessed. They don't realize that this is my baby. I'm supposed to be slightly obsessed. Okay, I admit, I am more than slightly obsessed. But hey, it's my first Sourcebooks Casablanca release. I think I'm entitled to be a little obsessed.
Luckily, I was able to put my obsession on hold for the weekend. I made the six hour journey south to Cincinnati to attend Lori Foster's Reader and Author Get Together. This is my first time attending this event and I guarantee it won't be my last. I had a great time. I met tons of awesome readers, authors, agents, editors and bloggers. There were tons of prizes to win, including several Nooks and Kindles.
But the real cool part was that I felt kind of important. I had people looking for ME! Seriously, someone wanted to meet lil' ol' me. I got a gift from a reader with a really sweet and touching letter. The gift was just as sweet. YUM!
And even though I didn't win a Kindle or a Nook, I still feel like I won. I made new friends and got to hangout with tons of awesome people. I couldn't think of any better way to spend a release day weekend.
And sadly, I have no pictures. I'm sort of a cameraphobe. I'm sure there are some pictures floating around the Internet though. Google will be the death of me.
