Monday's Mentionables: A Day in NYC!

Spent this past Saturday in New York City as part of an exchange student day trip (which, by the way, I don't ever recommend...NYC in December, that is). While we did luck out on the weather (4o and mild), the crowds were CRAZY, especially in mid-town Manhattan. Having said that, though, we enjoyed some nice sights....AND had a terrific surprise at the end of the day (scroll down to the last pic to see what it was!)



The tree in Rockefeller Center, with all the skaters below


Enjoying the view on South Street Seaport (and a gang of drunken Santas, behind us)


We headed uptown at the end of the evening, to Columbus Circle and the mall there...


Where we went into Borders and found my latest release on the shelves in the romance section!!! I almost fell over in disbelief! No better Christmas present for my writing career :)

That is the most exciting part of a writer's career and I am so happy for you! I am braving the city chaos this Saturday with 7 children (gulp). Can anyone say bravery? Or stupidity??

That is so cool! Congratulations!

So, did you tell the manager and sign the in-stock copies for them? :)

Great pictures. Almost as good as seeing you in person. The news about your book is great. I remember when this happened to me. Really gives one a rush
