It's been a whirlwind of a week, and yet, somehow, I kept thinking that every day was Friday. Including today! Maybe it's because I am looking forward to the long weekend. Or maybe it's because BEA (Book Expo America) is going on this week, and I always look forward to that. Well, I stopped by the Javitz convention center yesterday and took a stroll through the booths. I have to admit, I was a bit let down. It felt small, and many publishers had downsized their booths. Many skipped it all together this year. There were hardly any galleys to take, hardly, even, any books on display. It'll be interesting to see what happens next year, I guess.

Meanwhile, the lovely Cynthia Leitich Smith was kind enough to feature an interview with me on her Cynsational blog. You can check it out here: http://cynthialeitichsmith.blogspot.com/2010/05/author-feature-lisa-ann-sandell.html
I was so excited to meet Cynthia earlier this year, when I went down to Houston for an SCBWI conference. She is a tremendous writer and a wonderful person, through and through. Thanks, Cynthia!

Hope y'all have a great weekend!

So excited...

I'm so excited, because I get to go down to my home state, Delaware, this weekend. I'm going to see my parents and let my dog run around in the grass, unfettered by leashes or all the bodies constantly moving around in NYC. She's going to be so excited! But, what I'm most excited about is going down to Rehoboth, Delaware. The beach! I haven't been to the beach all summer. And, not only do I get to make a trip to the beach, but I get to visit Browseabout Books, a very cool independent bookstore, and do a signing. Then, I'm going to take a sailing lesson. Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait!

If you're in Rehoboth Beach this weekend, please stop by Browseabout Books, 133 Rehoboth Avenue, Rehoboth Beach, DE, on Saturday, August 15 at 10am!

Love the readergirlz!

Well, this is the first week I've been up and about. I went to work, went to my friend Aimee Friedman's book release party for her awesome new novel, SEA CHANGE, and got some more fun news: The fabulous divas at readergirlz chose A MAP OF THE KNOWN WORLD as one of their recommended reads! Check it out: http://www.readergirlz.com/issue200907.html.

Considering the fact that it's rained every single, stinkin' day, and I've been trapped at home for nearly all of June, it's turned out to be a pretty sweet month.

I hope everybody has a wonderful weekend. Happy 4th of July!
