Today’s plan: go to bookstores and sign stock. I’m in Harlem right now, so I’m going to work my south and hit some of the major stores that have been recommended to me: the B&N in Lincoln Square, Books of Wonder, the B&N right next to Books of Wonder, and The Strand. Somewhere in there I’m going to stop by Tor and sync up with my publicist, Alexis, and if I’m lucky I can get lunch at Katz. Dinner tonight will be Oyster Bar with Moshe, and then we’re going to hit Tor’s Steampunk Salon put together by Liz Gorinsky.
I know, I know, I’m here for BEA, but all my stuff is scheduled for tomorrow. Plus, I’m terrified that if I go early I’ll just see too much stuff I want to buy. I wanted to buy everything I saw at the Leipzig book fair, too, and those I couldn’t even read. BEA is going to kill me.
