TweetI adore Austin. This is one of the coolest cities I have ever been to. BH, we really need to come down here on vacation. I spent most of the morning on phone calls and LJ entries, then scurried downstairs for lunch with my collection of librarians, plus one professor. They were lovely and lively!
TweetI can’t believe I got up when the alarm went off, but I did. I do not remember the shuttle ride to the airport, but once I got through the security ritual, I found a Starbucks and stood at the gate until the barristas took pity on me and opened up a few minutes early. […]

TweetIt was another early flight out of Miami, but it wasn’t hard to make the plane because I was still buzzing with adrenaline from the Books & Books event. I flew North, to Ohio. My author schlepper here is Kathy Tirschek. (The proper title is “media escort.”) Her job is to take me from event […]
TweetWow. WOW. ….. we interrupt this LJ post to point out that the author is pretty much speechless at this point because she is so completely blown away by the Books & Books event tonight. Please bear with her…. Freaking – ohmigah – wow. The world of bookselling changed tonight. Books and Books raised the […]
