Book Revue and The Voracious Reader

Last week, I did a wonderful book event at Book Revue in Huntington, NY. Thanks so much to the fabulous booksellers and everyone who came by to listen to me babble. I read from and talked about ICE, and then we ate Cassie and Bear:

How cool is that?

Yummy too.

I love edible photos. I love that someone sat down and said,
"You know what this world needs? The ability to eat a photograph."

And you know what? I think he or she was right. The world does need things like edible photos -- things that exist purely to make someone smile. I think that is a noble purpose. Honestly, it's one of the reasons that I write. I love the idea of creating a story that can touch someone, make someone smile, take someone out of their worries and problems for at least a couple hours...

My next book event doesn't involve edible bears, but it does involve two other fabulous authors. This Friday, I will be at The Voracious Reader with Carolyn MacCullough (Once a Witch) and Delia Sherman (The Magic Mirror of the Mermaid Queen). Here are the details:

Even with the tanking economy, airfare is too expensive.

Kirthi: I ate my name. Seemed appropriate. :)

Boojumlol: Sweet. (Pun intended.)

Seriously? I have to teach a (cardio kickboxing) double the next morning, but I am seriously considering driving to this event. By the bye, finished 'Ice' yesterday. Still processing. Might take awhile on account of the sheer AWESOME.

In related news, I want cake.

I have a sister at MIT and have been trying to convince her to set her brilliant friends to work on it, but I don't think she's been persuasive enough yet.
