Well I'm Back...

First things first: if I owe you email or indeed hard cash, I am terribly sorry! Pneumonia has spent its time kicking my ass and calling me Sally.

Even with this inconvenient illness, I had a wonderful time in America! It was fabulous to meet everyone in Boston, Chicago and New York, and answer very smart questions, and bibble to people about books - thank you very much to everyone who came, and I hope you had fun. I did many secret things, scooped up a vast pile of books, and am currently deep in edits of Whisper.

There is a very lovely write-up of the Boston Diversity in YA event, and all of us chatting. Also afterward, I cornered Malinda Lo to tell her how much she inspiiiires me.

This is just how I roll at events. In New York, it also went a bit like this.

GAIL CARSON LEVINE: One cat and one ogre walk into a room. Cat walks out.
SARAH: creepy stare of love
SARAH: Oh yes, I've just thought of another shameful story to tell you guys!

Books of Wonder (www.booksofwonder.com, 18 West 18th Street, New York, NY 10011, 212 989-3270) also have bookplate-signed Demon's Surrenders from June 14th! If people would like one.

Speaking of Demon's Surrender, then I returned home and found my UK and Irish editions of Demon's Surrender had arrived! I have spent my time dancing the set of three (trilogy accomplished!) up and down the mantelpiece.

And there is going to be a Trilogy Accomplished! event in my native land.

Eason's Bookshop
O'Connell Street, Dublin

Thursday, June 23rd
6-9pm

John Stephens, author of The Emerald Atlas, and Sarah Rees Brennan, author of the Demon's Lexicon trilogy, read, do Q&A, sign books and tell all

Tickets are Free .... and can be obtained by calling 01-8583815. (Or if you just want to mosey on by, we'd love to have you.)

Given my usual ways, John Stephens will have to be strong.

I know you've only just left the States and are busy with many things but is there a chance you'll be present at this year's San Diego Comic Con in California? :)

No, not this year! Maybe next year...

I know Scott Westerfeld will be there, though! So I am confident there will be much YA joyfulness.

I had pneumonia during college and dragged myself to classes. I was an idiot.
Keep your inhaler close and best of luck on your recovery!

Congratulations! Trilogy complete sounds like a great moment! Wish I could come see you read. Any chance you'll take your book tour past Montreal?

I'd love to, but I think only fancy people get to tour in Canada. ;) Maybe next year!

SO, I finally got a job and was able to purchase the first two books in the trilogy (for my Kindle), and read them. Excellent work. Enjoyed them immensely. Looking forward to The Demon's Surrender.

I got really excited when I realized that it was JUNE now, and that meant I could read Surrender THIS MONTH. It even outweighed the fact that I have to pay my student loans again. (Do you have student loans in Ireland? I hope you don't; they stink.)

This is not meant to be a bothersome question, but I was wondering whatever happened with the missing Promotion Notion prizes. I'm still without mine.

I am so sorry. All the packages bar two were sent off before I left, and at least one seems to have been delayed/hasn't arrived, and with pneumonia and travel I've been turned around, but I will get right on it.

Totally okay! Especially considering the pneumonia. I just wanted to make sure I hadn't somehow missed something.

Aw, I'm in Dublin a week too early. :( But I can still pick up a pretty UK version of Surrender. :)
You'll just have to come visit Toronto someday.

I'd be creepy-love/awe-staring at Gail Carson Levine as well. She's probably used to it.

You poor thing. Pneumonia is horrible, and quite annoying with the coughing and lack of breathing. Glad to hear you're feeling better.

I am so excited for Surrender's release, and would love to come to Dublin. But before I book holiday/flights, are you doing anything in London this year?

Cheers,
Gem.

Ooh! Sarah! You actually found a date that sort of suits me since, you know, JUNE and LEAVING CERT and all but my last exam is on the 21st and I'm in Dublin until the 24th! So gods willing I may be able to make it!

I'm glad you managed to enjoy your trip to America even though you were sick!

Also the theme change threw me off! I thought I had gone to the wrong journal at first. Any reason for the change?

*puzzled* There is no theme change?

It's gone now...
I came here yesterday and everything was blue and rather boring looking and then a few hours later it set itself back to normal...I have no idea what was happening.

LJ has done that to a couple of journals in the past few months. Feel lucky: I lost all of my code and had to reset it manually. orz

Ha. Hahaha. I work at the Bed Bath and Beyond there. The employee entrance is right across from Books of Wonder. Did you eat one of the adorable cupcakes at the cafe? I haven't yet, so if you did you'll have to tell me if it was tasty.

HOW DID I MISS THAT EVENT? DO I LIVE UNDER A ROCK? I WAS EVEN WORKING THAT DAY, GAHH, MY LIFE.
