I was at Mountains and Plains working work's exhibitor's table and I had a fantastic time. From a work standpoint, talking to indie booksellers and such was really awesome. I think I got some really useful feedback I can put to good use, too.
From a reading standpoint -- tradeshows are book heaven! Holy moly! And so many book people in one place. It was freaking awesome!
I saw some really exciting upcoming releases and did the happy dance more than once considering the ones I was able to snag. I'll be sure to tell you all about them.
On that note, I happen to know where you can get a copy of Alice Hoffman's upcoming book (officially released tomorrow), The Dovekeepers. Fellow blogger Susan Tunis over at In One Eye, Out the Other... is giving away a copy and has extended the entry deadline. Head over and enter your name. She's raved about the book and I saw it again at M&P this weekend as a rep pick from that publisher.
Anywho, I'm going start a new book now. Happy reading!
