Book Expo was a wonderful whirlwind. I took the opportunity to walk to dinner and enjoy the city after a few interviews and my panel. I held a physical copy of Pashmina in my hands for the first time! Then I signed 100 advanced copies and was introduced as an author ^_^
I’ve been worried about not knowing what to do as a debut author and feeling generally lost. The trip alleviated many of my concerns. I know my worries are only temporarily silenced but while they are – I will embrace happiness.
