I had a great time at the Book Bloggers convention in New York May 28. It was part of BEA, and it was exciting as an author to meet, in the flesh, all these great, fun and smart people who love reading as much as (more???) than I do, and who write so thoughtfully about books. I still haven't figured out how they all find the time, since they almost all have jobs and/or kids and/or are writing books themselves.
Here's the list of all the bloggers there (with links to their blogs):
I'm looking forward to getting to know many of them better on line and instituting suggestions they gave me (learn Twitter! Gulp!) But first, I HAVE to finish the first (BIG) revision of my novel, or my label as "author" (which I had on my convention badge) will be a lie.
More to come, including ideas for "making a better author blog." (Why do I have three blogs when I can barely do one, much less make time for writing? Am I insane? Don't answer.)
Okay, back to work!!!
