I’ll be at the ALA Midwinter conference in Boston this weekend, not doing anything official or author-ish, other than ogling all the upcoming books in the exhibit hall. In fact, the whole family’s going, which brings me to the following offer:
If your upcoming book is likely to be on display at ALA this weekend and you’d like a photo of it, just leave a comment below with your title & publisher. I’m making an exhibit hall scavenger hunt for my eight-year-old daughter, who will happily hunt down your title and snap a shot of it with my iPhone to share via Twitter or here on the blog when we get home. (We will also probably jump up and down in excitement a bit when we find your book, and then lavish the ARC with oohs and ahhs, so really…it will be just like you being there. Only you won’t have to eat a droopy twelve-dollar convention center salad for lunch.)
And if you ARE going to be at ALA, I hope our paths will cross. Jo Knowles is organizing a LiveJournal meet-up that I’ll be at if schedules go as planned. You can read the details on Jo’s blog here.
