Tomorrow morning I take the train into NYC, where I will (hopefully) not get lost on my way to the Mariott Marquis in Times Square. I'm so excited! I haven't been to New York City since I was about fifteen. That was amazing, and I have a feeling this time will be equally so. DARK AWAKENING hits shelves tomorrow, and I'm so thrilled I get to sign it at the Literacy for Life signing (in the ballroom from 5:30 to 7:30)! The temporary tattoos arrived while I was away, but...*sigh* Well, it wouldn't be a big deal of a week if it didn't start with a snafu. They're very cool. And they're a different mark than I wanted. Don't ask how I managed to end up with the one test image I uploaded when I was having issues. SO, I've got some very cool bat symbols that will allow the interested to be a Dracul for a day. Vlad Dracul and his bloodline feature pretty prominently in the book, and I actually have a big soft spot for sexy Vlad, so it doesn't bother me too much. Here's the tat:
I'll work on getting the Cait Sith ones when I get back. But in the meantime, you too can be a seductive bat-shifter:)
Anyway, I'll blog from the hotel, hopefully with some cool pictures and video. I know I've mentioned I love my phone...it does everything! So I'll see you Wednesday, when I'll be hanging out with my buddies Cheryl Brooks and Marie Force. That's one of the things about being a writer...your friends end up scattered around the country, so RWA is a great way to meet once a year!
Happy Monday, all!
