As are so many of my publishing colleagues, I’m off to Los Angeles for BookExpo America, or BEA. I’m leaving lots of room in my suitcase for the galleys I hope to pick up while I’m there, as well as whatever cute tote bags, and giveaways I can get my little hands on! I’m most excited about meeting with three of my authors, though, including one with whom I’ve spoken for years, but never meet in person before. Should be a grand time. Expect posting to be sporadic until I return to the office next week, but if inspiration and opportunity strikes, I’ll be around.
I’ve been thinking about my time AFK — Away From Keyboard, for those of you not up on your l33tspeak. Now granted, with one computer down here in my office, and another one upstairs in Rexroth’s office, it’s not too often that I’m all that far away from a keyboard. But occasionally, yes, it happens.
