Book Expo America, Here I Come

Friends, as I mentioned before, I'm running away next week to move and shake my way through Book Expo America and Book Blogger Convention in New York City, so the blog may be a little quiet. What's BEA, you ask?

Basically it's a place for book dorks to come together and swoon and not get stared at for being weird. There. I said it. I'M JUST BEING HONEST.

And I can't wait for it! There will be autograph signings, chances for me to meet with publishers and a ton of fun events -- hopefully many involving cocktails! I think this experience may be a little, um, overwhelming... (see photographic evidence below)

...but I'm pumped to meet some of my favorite authors, get up to some mischief with fellow bloggers and mix and mingle with the publishers. NYC, here I come!

If you'll be at BEA too, come say hi! Here's a little "facial recognition therapy" to help...

Moi as I am typing this. 
Honestly, I'm a little nervous that no one will recognize me, SO LOOK CLOSELY! And say hi! I'm not a shy person, though, so...maybe don't be alarmed if I come running up to YOU. Looking forward to making some great new bookish friends!

Wish me luck if you're staying home, and follow along on Twitter to see what I'm up to.
