I know, I know, I’m horribly late with my post today, and I’m going to let you down even further with something short. In my defense, I had to run around quite a bit today, trying to get things done before I leave for Bologna (one week from tonight!), and helping a friend.
My favorite part may be the picture of Josie and Meg at one of Meg’s signings years before. It reminds me of a picture of myself from college, when some friends and I went down to New Orleans over Spring Break, and I insisted on our visiting Anne Rice’s house in the Garden District. (I was a huge fan of her vampire books, looooooong before the current vampire publishing phase.) We were looking at the outside when who should pull up but Anne Rice herself! So yeah, I totally got a picture — and years later, when I worked at Janklow & Nesbit, I got to work on some of her books!
What authors have you met that inspired you in some way?
