I'm too tired to do a long post about today, but I thought I'd come do a little update. Today the mad rush truly began. But, surprisingly, it wasn't as crazy as I thought it would be. Maybe it's because I went in with a pretty low-key attitude, but I didn't feel terribly overwhelmed. I think it helped a lot that I met up with some really awesome bloggers who made the day incredibly fun. Sure, I sat in a line for an hour and a half - but I was just sitting there chatting about books and blogging. Nothing bad about that! I am loving making new blogger friends!
Best author moment of the day for me was definitely meeting Julie Kagawa. She was out taking pictures and video of the insanely long line that stretched around the convention center for the Teen Harlequin signing and she was nice enough to chat for a moment and take a picture with me! Yay, Julie! I was right in the front of that line because I was not about to miss out on Talon. Of course, the book cover managed to get all creased in my bag, which made me very sad! It was the only book that got damaged and it was the book that I was most excited about! Sigh. I suppose I'll survive (even though my OCD about books was triggered horribly!).
Me and the fabulous Ms. Julie Kagawa!
Okay, I'll write more about BEA later, but for now, I'm heading to bed!
