Let’s meet up at BEA!

So, uh, yeah. I’ve seen around the blogosphere that some people are all non-procrastinating and stuff and created Google forms so you can trade cell phone numbers so y’all can meet up at BEA…

*sigh*

I’m obviously not one of those people.

I’m a procrastinator, and I probably should have had that post up a week ago. Better yet, I should have gone through my contacts, figured out who’s going to BEA, and sent them an email with my cell phone number so we could meet up.

I know, blah blah blah, Charlie Brown’s teacher, blah blah blah.

All that to say, if you’re going to BEA, I want to meet up with you at some point. If you lurk on my blog and think I don’t know who you are, you’re probably wrong. Since there’s only six of you reading this thing, I can keep track of you pretty durn well.

Oh, and if you don’t know anyone but are going to BEA anyway? You can tag along with me until you meet some of the bloggers. I’ll introduce you to folks, I’ll ease your anxiety, and we’ll have fun. I know that none of what I’m saying makes a good case for the fact that I’m really and truly an introvert, but I appreciate when someone does this for me, so I’m just paying it forward.

Email me at trish at heylady dot net and I’ll send you my cell phone so we can be very 2010 and text each other instead of calling. If I don’t respond to your email, it’s ’cause I didn’t receive it. I like to answer me some emails.

    You are all killing me. Next year, I’m going to do whatever I must to make it up there. You can show me the ropes then!

    I haven’t posted my BEA plans yet either. I’m sort of playing things by ear, not wanting to overwhelm myself because there is so much to do and so many people I want to meet. I’d love to see you again in NYC!

    Oh, Anna, we should definitely meet up! And I can’t believe how much STUFF there is to do! Too bad you can’t stock up on sleep in advance. 😀

    Oh, I so wish I was going this year, but I think I am going to have to settle for being there next year. I hope that I will eventually get the chance to meet you there, along with some of the other bloggers out there.

    DUDE! If we ever meet up, I think I might jump on you and lick your face.

    …I hope you’re not weirded out now. LOL

    *lurks by* Hey, I’m the seventh reader. Does this mean I don’t really exist? 😉

    Glad I’m not the only one trying to get my procrastinating butt in gear. I’ll be at BEA on Wed. and Thurs., and I’d love to meet up with you at some point! I’ll send you an e-mail in the hopefully very near future.

    I’m the eighth reader =) I had never heard of BEA until your blog…today in fact. It looks AMAZING. I will try to plan for it next year; it would be a great excuse to go to New York. You should definitely do a couple of posts after the it’s over so that we can see what it was like.

    trish Reply:

    HAHA!! Well let’s hope ya’ll don’t get over the double digits because then I can’t keep track of everyone! 😉

    Sara, you should totally plan for next year! And I’m going to try to post lots of pics….nudge me if I don’t.

    Trish,

    I’ll be there. Maybe we can connect on Tuesday. BTW, The Purloined Boy won the National Gold “IPPY” for best Young Adult Fiction. The award ceremony will be Tuesday night at Providence NYC on W. 57th Street.

    Thanks for your help in making that happen!

    I’ll be there – this is my first time! I hope to put together a video diary of the conference for my site. That is, if I can figure out how to use my Bloggie video cam . . .

    Trish,
    What a fantastic event you and yours put on at BBC! It was so nice to meet you – your red braids are too, too cute! As a Luddite author new to the online world of book blogging, I was overwhelmed with excitement. I left the conference inspired and enthused to discover new places where readers (that’s me!) can go.
    Thank you so much for opening my eyes to a great big cyber world,
    Helen Ellis
