Just got back from the city, where the only shopping I did was to buy another bag to put all the books my editors gave me in. Harlequin loaded me up, but I gotta say it’s Betsy Mitchell for the win with an advance copy of Naomi Novik’s EMPIRE OF IVORY, fourth book in her Temeraire series. Bwahaha. I know what I’m reading on the plane tonight. :) Also: OMG. The foreign translations of Naomi’s books look so awesome. The Korean one is *gorgeous*. So jealous! But not really. I don’t even know her, but I’m terribly pleased for her. :)
For being stuck, it’s been a pretty good day. I met a bunch of people at Del Rey, and met the new head editor at Luna, and only got lost on the subway twice, where ‘lost’ means ‘I went the wrong direction’. And now I’m going to the airport really early so that I can be damned sure to get on that plane and go *home*!
