NY has not been itself lately. It has been more like London, from what I remember of my time there -- dreary and wet and very, very green. The green is good. Please bring more of that. But the wet and dreary I can do without.
Other than that, I am finally getting my bearings after the whirlwind Toronto trip! And you're right, I should absolutely be posting pics from the launch. I have only two, and I will put those up tomorrow *grin*. There is a video H took of me reading, but apparently, there was a giant earthquake only in the spot where he was standing with the camera.
Yesterday I met with my agent and editor in the city. It was a very illuminating visit. I had begun to see my editor and the publishing house as Oz-ish. Very mysterious and humungous. Visiting showed me just how human it all is and I got to meet all the lovely people who've helped make SHINE what it is. *sends LURVE to all those lovely people*
This week I will be working on a blog post for Racialicious.com, getting ready for a reading in Rutherford, NJ, and putting together materials for an in school visit.
But first, I shall collapse in exhaustion. And tomorrow there will be pics!
