Okay, I’ve been completely remiss in talking about last week’s trip to Kidlit Con, and so I will do it now. First, the experience can really be summed up in this one sentence: It was so much fun!
Our panel on Friday was very laid back and not scary at all. (At least, not scary for me. We may have been frightening—I can’t speak for anyone else.) People asked great questions and I didn’t obsess about the fact that I was sitting in front of a roomful of people, talking into a microphone. Also, the venue was absolutely beautiful and I’m sad that I have no pictures of it.
Tess and Maggie have already done a much better (and when I say better, I mean prompt) job of posting pictures, but I’m including these anyway because I want them preserved for posterity. Also, there was a marquee! We had a marquee and I can’t not post a picture of that.
I also signed books (first time not at a trade show), and one of the conference attendees was kind enough to take this picture of me signing her book and then let me share it!
And of course, being in the same city with Tess and Maggie meant plenty of photo ops. Andrew Karre, editor extraordinaire, took this one and I absolutely love it. We are riding an escalator. We look so official!
