Status: It’s pouring rain in New York too. Is there anywhere where it’s not raining?
What’s Playing on the XM or iPod right now? WHATAYA WANT FROM ME by Adam Lambert
Dashing off in the next hour to head to Javits Center. It’s going to be a crazy week but I’ll try and report from the floor. I’m armed with my camera.
And some great news to kick it off. Kirkus lists the Top 26 Galleys to grab at the Fair and guess who is on it?
In a totally unscientific sampling, I gave an ARC of this title to my 17 year old niece who loved it. She cajoled my 14 year old reluctant reader nephew to read it. He spent an entire day, while on spring break, away from playing his favorite video game because he couldn’t stop reading it.
There have only been two other books that did the same for him. ENDER’S GAME and the HUNGER GAMES trilogy.
This is how I know Marie and I might be on to something with this LEGEND trilogy so if you are at BEA, you might want to hit Marie’s signing on Wed. May 25 at 3 pm at Penguin’s booth #3252.
The last NLA book to be chosen as a top galley at BEA was SOULLESS by Gail Carriger.
This bodes well for us!
