I'm so sorry I didn't post yesterday. Well, technically once this goes up, it'll be dated for yesterday, because I don't want to bump Shirley down. See, I took the world's fastest trip to Dallas yesterday. I went for a reader event, where I met some lovely ladies, who really enjoyed Blue Diablo.
My flight left early, and I arrived on time just after noon at DFW. Sara Reyes of Fresh Fiction was there waiting for me. We went for a yummy lunch at Love and War in Texas, where I had the brisket, then we went on a stock signing spree, which if you know me, means I am buying ten times the number of books I sign. By the time we'd hit the third store, Sara mentioned she thought I might need a bag to put my stuff in (because I'm an impressively light packer, and I had all my stuff in one handbag). I lamented forgetting to bring an empty carry-on bag, but she ameliorated the lack by taking me to Sam Moon, which is the coolest store ever, if you like purses. And I do. Oh, mercy, I do. So I got a cute carry-on there, and then we went on to more bookstore. You should see my book porn. I spread all my books out at Sara's house on the table, and the ladies admired them. Sweet, sweet books...
Then we had a fabulous Mediterranean themed dinner with kebabs, couscous, fresh salads, hummus, and pita bread. The talk was lively, and I enjoyed myself to the Nth degree. It was much more fun than a formal interview because people just asked me their questions about the books and my plans, and who I am, over the course of the meal. The party didn't break up until well after ten, when a wonderful woman named Mindy drove me back to my hotel. I called my husband to let him know I was alive, told him I loved him, and then crashed out by 11. I was up at 4 am and getting in the shower to make the trip home.
It's now 11am here, and I'm back in Mexico City, which means I was gone less than 24 hours. Fastest trip ever! But sooooo much fun. I had thought I would post about this yesterday, and I tried all day long, but the Dell Pocket PC I had with me would let me write the post, but it wouldn't actually take the command to post the thing. Talk about frustrating!
So please forgive me for being a day late, but I'm posting retroactively, so that counts for something, right? What did you guys do with your Wednesday?
