For those of you who asked about the pictures I took of Daniel Craig at the red carpet event the other night... I'll post those when I get home. In the meantime, here's something to hold you over. A press shot of what I experienced live.
Yesterday, I attended the London Book Fair. I expected it to be more like BEA where authors are heavily featured and advance copies and signed copies of books are plentiful and free to attendees. Sadly, that wasn't the case. Present were tons of publishers from across the world, as well as distributors, like Ingram, Baker & Taylor, and IPG, and several high powered literary agents. They were focused on business. Making deals. Selling foreign rights and such. I strolled the floor, met a couple of people at Ingram and also introduced myself at the Harlequin Mills and Boon booth. Tonight I'm attending a cocktail party hosted by Ingram. Looking forward to the casual networking opportunity, although I'm really glad my husband and a couple of friends will be there, too, as I can be terribly shy when on my own.
Saw an incredible musical last night. Spamalot. Laughed my butt off! I'm a huge Monty Python fan, so I was thrilled that the non-Python cast pulled off Python humor so spot on. This show was truly a highlight of my trip.
So much to share, but I'm off to enjoy the last few hours of my holiday. Cheers!
