BEA 2012 Trip Report
Despite the achy feet and shoulders, though, I love BEA. I think the best thing about it is that everyone in the whole vast enormous conference center has one thing in common: a love for books.
Here are a couple photos that I took:
First, because I know at least someone is wondering, here are the books that I carted home. (The sideways one with the title you can't see is a wonderful picture book called The Tiptoe Guide to Tracking Mermaids.)
Here is Tim Gunn. Not because I met him. (I didn't.) But because he's Tim Gunn, and I totally want to install him in my writing room and have him say, "Make it work," at key moments.
Lastly, here are me and Clifford. Clifford didn't say much, but I had so many great conversations with so many fantastic people that it more than made up for Clifford's silence.
I failed to take any pictures of my signing, but thank you to everyone who came! I signed lots of copies of Drink, Slay, Love, gave away lots of Vessel bookmarks and postcards, and had a blast!
And to those of you I missed seeing at BEA, so sorry I missed you!
Can't wait for next year! After my training regimen, of course.
