We’re having an amazing time here in the city that never sleeps.
In case you missed Toni’s post yesterday, a huge group of authors has descended on New York for the Romance Writers of America conference. We’re in Times Square, where the sidewalks are packed, the traffic is honking 24/7, and there are a gazillion things to do just footsteps from the hotel… such as catching a live promotion for the new Transformers movie. (Here’s a pic I took with my phone, like a complete tourist!)
The MSW ladies had a fabulous time at the Algonquin Hotel the other night, where we hosted a cocktail party. Here’s a pic of Sylvia and Rocki heading back from the bar to keep the party going at the conference hotel.
Despite all the hustle and bustle, I’ve actually had a chance to sit down and catch up with some dear friends who I only see once I year. I’ve had lunch with my editor and agent and even gotten a chance to do some writing in the quiet, chore-free zone of my hotel room between events.
One of the highlights of the trip so far was an evening stroll with a friend down the city’s new elevated park, The High Line, which occupies a converted elevated train platform. Great views of the city…
The conference festivities culminate tonight with the awards banquet, where our very own Allison Brennan and Roxanne St. Claire are up for RITA Awards. Good luck to you both!
And that’s it for the travel log because I’m off to more appointments…
