this week's posts

Lots of stuff is going on this week. I have a meeting with an educational specialist on Tuesday. We're going to have a talk about boys, reading, and writing. Should be good, and, of course I'll report on it.

I got some cover proofs for the jacket for Ghost Medicine, and they are beautiful. I'm even going to frame some of them. Everything I heard from the folks back in NYC was right... this is an amazing-looking cover.

But, the most exciting news of all is that this week is Book Expo America, which I will be attending. So, there will be lots of BEA blog posts this week, starting with Thursday (I'll be attending a special BEA dinner with some incredible people on Thursday evening). Then, I'll be blogging about the expo and everything I get to see there, too.

I'll be signing galley copies of Ghost Medicine at the Feiwel & Friends booth (1508) on Saturday at BEA from 2 - 3, and I am very anxious about that, because, knowing me, I'll probably show up with hay in my hair (got to feed the horses before I leave) and a cup of coffee spilled on my crotch. Yes... that has happened to me before. Note to self: wear black, possibly a black rain coat.

Most thrilling of all is getting to see Jean Feiwel, Elizabeth Fithian, Rich Deas, and Liz Szabla (the best editor in the UNIVERSE) again; getting to finally meet Liz Noland... and-- most of all -- getting to kick it with the incredible writers in attendance on the Feiwel list... Wow!

More to follow on Tuesday.
