February has been kind of the Month of Crazy. I've been hosting my second semi-annual Contest of Olympic Proportion over on my personal blog (aka 17 days of great giveaways from fabulous authors--be sure to check out this Saturday's contest and you're sure to see some familiar books up for grabs).
I've also been getting ready for an adventurous trip. And when I say "adventurous" I mean a seven week trek that will take me from east coast to west coast, from Quebec, Canada, to Houston, Texas, and a few places in between. I'll be meeting with my editor and colleagues in New York, making a professional appearance at the Texas Library Association conference, and playing it casual as a tourist in climates ranging from freezing winter to potentially tropical spring.
The hardest part so far has been the planning. Since I won't be in any one location more than five days, that's a lot of hotel and transportation reservations. And because I'll be changing lodgings every few days I'm trying to keep my packing down. Way down. We're talking a purse/tote bag and a carry-on suitcase.
We'll see on Monday (my departure date) how well I succeed.
Oh. My. Gods. and Goddess Boot Camp (out now!)
