I'd begged the fantastic bloggers (and women!!!) Danielle, Amy, and Florinda to take me to the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books—a running joke we had among us. But I didn't really expect them to, you know, take me there. I'm agile, perhaps, and I can still bend, but I don't fit into any suitcase. Still, being the inventive and loving women they are, they found a way, and here's the photograph to prove it. That's one bright happy moment, the three of them with this part of me. It put a tear in my eye when I saw it late last night.
Melissa Walker, whose new book, Unbreak My Heart, is due out in May, also found me in her travels last week. She was in Texas at the Texas Library Association meeting. She snapped this picture and sent it my way, with a note, Great to see you at the TLA. The thing is, though, that I really do want to see Melissa. In person. Some day. We're working on it.
