I’m home from Anaheim and, six days later, finally firmly back on east coast time. What a blast, though! Southern California has the most gorgeous weather. The Anaheim Marriott, where the convention took place, was practically within walking distance of Disneyland, and while I never quite got to Disneyland, I did sneak away one evening with my roommate and critique partner, Laurin Wittig, for drinks and beignets in Downtown Disney.
While days were spent in meetings and workshops, the nights were the most fun. Wednesday night was the Literacy Signing, all proceeds going to charity and over 500 authors signing. Crazy! But always fun.
Thursday night, five authors, two Avon editors, and a member of the Avon Books publicity team traveled to the incredible Cerritos Library for a panel, book signing, and a tour of the most incredible library I’ve ever seen.
Friday night was the fabulous Avon Party at Maestro’s Beach club in Newport Beach.
I’m back home, writing like a fiend before my next trip, New Orleans for Authors After Dark this coming Wednesday. Hope to see some of you there!
