Hello, my dears, from sunny, thunder storm-prone Atlanta! Marissa and I have been running between workshops, meetings with agents and editors, and workshop panels, and we wanted to share some of the highlights with you.
First off, the hotel is amazing! Dozens of floors and glass elevators that zip from top to bottom. Marissa and I are agreed that it looks a bit like a spinal column.
Some of the publishers found a new way to use those elevators--poster space! I am told these are called elevator wraps. And I was absolutely thrilled to see one you might find familiar.
And here is someone else who might look familiar. Marissa's book Courtship and Curses was a finalist for the best young adult book of 2012 for the Booksellers Best Award. She very kindly let me tag along to the awards ceremony. Doesn't she clean up good?
Not sure we'll have time for another post this week, my dears. But come back Tuesday to talk about the movie Emma with the ever-fabulous and entertaining Cara King. See you then!
