I just spent a week in the Big Apple.
I love visiting NYC. I usually go by myself since it’s a business trip for me, meeting with my agent and editors, as well as attending the annual board meeting for Mystery Writers of America, where I serve as national treasurer.
But this year…since I wasn’t leaving from NYC to go on book tour as I had the last two years, I took my husband along.
Oh man, did we have fun 🙂 — in between my meetings and working in my hotel room finishing up deadlines of course.
What did we do?
We had a couple of great dinners with my brother and sister in law.
We saw a new car unveiled in Times Square.
We attended the Book Of Mormon on Broadway — which was beyond hilarious.
We walked everywhere. No wonder most people in NYC are skinny.
We went to the Guggenheim and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
We ate so many different varieties of food I don’t remember them all. Uh, yeah…starting that diet this week.
As far as celebrity sightings? Alan Rickman. And Karl Rove stayed at our hotel.
What I didn’t do?
Go to the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, or other tourist destinations. One of these times I will put that on the list.
Whenever I travel I always throw it out to my Lorelei James readers where I’m going to be. So I was so happy to get to meet with two separate groups of fans two different times. I didn’t show up on a wickedly cool tour bus with a hot-looking
cowboy vampire in tow, but hey, it’s a goal to shoot for, right?
Writing is such a solitary gig that it’s a serious treat to talk to people who aren’t strictly in my head!
Alas, back to deadlines and hiding in my writing cave.
So…ever been to NYC? If yes, what was your favorite part? If no, is it on your wish list of places to visit?
