  1. Thanks, Kimberley! It was great fun. Would love to see you there next year. I'm sure FORBIDDEN was flying off the tables, but I was doing my best to avoid ARCs–leaving them for the librarians!

  2. Thanks for the photo shout out! So good to see you and Greg both, albeit briefly! And EE Charlton Trujillo! I am such a fan girl! Was so thrilled to meet her! Okay, and everyone else, too. Which is the lovely point of bookish events, yes?
