New York bound...

I love New York! I could never live there, but it's one of my all-time favorite places to visit. This trip, I'm meeting with my agent (who is a sweetheart) and my editor (who I haven't met yet, but who was a joy
to work with on The Penny Tree).

Because of all the buzz surrounding her debut novel, Lottery, Patricia Wood will also be there at the same time, so we decided to stay at the same hotel. I'm not even on the plane yet and she has me exhausted! Between meetings, I plan to drag her over to Ellis Island (which has a walk-on part in The Silver Compass). She wants to explore Central Park (I'm so there for her) and we'll also be meeting a few other authors for lunch (looking forward to it you guys), but more importantly, I can't wait for the break away from my daily grind.

Watch for more posts later this week.

Have a great time, Holly! The first time I visited New York, I didn't want to leave. Coming from a small town, the anonymity of the city definitely appealed to me. I was 18.

Can't wait to hear about the adventures of Holly and Pat!

Safe travels...

Have great fun! I so wish I could be there with you two. I'm heading off to NYC July 9th. Report back!

L-U-C-K-Y!!! Have a glorious time and please take/share pictures as Pat did during her first visit to NYC in the spring.

Gee, two trips to NYC within a few months is what I'd call (winning a) Lottery! Enjoy....

I've never been to New York and to tell the truth, it's a bit intimidating when I think about it. Strangely enough, however, London didn't intimidate me at all. I felt right at home.

Have a wonderful trip!

I've already complained to Pat that I am very jealous of her pending trip, so I come over here to feel a bit better and AHHHH!!!

Grr.

Okay, all I can do is wish you an amazing time and much fun and wish I was there with you guys!

Nice one, Anissa.

You two let loose together in the Big Apple?
