Looks like I’ll be signing advanced bound copies of CRIMSON at BEA in New York this year on Friday May 29th. If you’re in the city, stop by and say hi. Bound copies aren’t the same as ARC’s. ARC’s have been edited at least once. I’m excited to be signing, even though the final version of CRIMSON is VERY different from the bound copies. Hopefully I can get some business done while I’m there.
As an aside, I think it’s extremely important for published authors to make regular trips (ie once a year) to New York. I never thought it mattered, until I went to the Novelist Inc. conference last year. Face time with your editors and agent really make a HUGE difference in your working relationships. Make the trip if you can.
