Well I’m Back…

First things first: if I owe you email or indeed hard cash, I am terribly sorry! Pneumonia has spent its time kicking my ass and calling me Sally.

Even with this inconvenient illness, I had a wonderful time in America! It was fabulous to meet everyone in Boston, Chicago and New York, and answer very smart questions, and bibble to people about books – thank you very much to everyone who came, and I hope you had fun. I did many secret things, scooped up a vast pile of books, and am currently deep in edits of Whisper.

There is a very lovely write-up of the Boston Diversity in YA event, and all of us chatting. Also afterward, I cornered Malinda Lo to tell her how much she inspiiiires me.

This is just how I roll at events. In New York, it also went a bit like this.

GAIL CARSON LEVINE: One cat and one ogre walk into a room. Cat walks out.
SARAH: creepy stare of love
SARAH: Oh yes, I’ve just thought of another shameful story to tell you guys!

Speaking of Demon’s Surrender, then I returned home and found my UK and Irish editions of Demon’s Surrender had arrived! I have spent my time dancing the set of three (trilogy accomplished!) up and down the mantelpiece.

And there is going to be a Trilogy Accomplished! event in my native land.
