Book Expo America -- Day One

It's 3 AM on Weds 25 May, the day after my debut at BEA. Words will have to wait for another time but I wanted to share some photos. It started with the signing for The TAKER with longs so unexpectedly long we added another 30 mins, went to lunch and drinks with the folks at Gallery, my wonderful agent Peter and his assistant Lisa, and meeting buyers and press, to seeing so many blogger friends at the Bookrageous party. You only have one chance to debut. Mine could not have been better.
Katie (Book Addict Katie) is one of my Washington, DC buds. She wrote the first review of The Taker and has been a constant supporter since. And she is the nicest person and best storyteller.
How many book publishers will get tattooed for you? The gang at Gallery Books at lunch, all with TAKER tattoos.
This is what happens when you have a box of fake tattoos in a bar...
