ALA in New Orleans, 2011!!!

What can I say? It was awesome, overwhelming, wonderful, exciting, and I LOVED the people at Scholastic! They were so warm and friendly and helpful and took me under their wing. There were Scholastic publishing offices people there from New York City as well as Book Fair folks from around the country who man the offices and warehouses and buy and sell books to schools and bookstores. Really impressive people, I loved them!

Here's a couple of pictures below and there are lots more at Facebook with tags and descriptions if you'd like to take a peek. Go here! ALA New Orleans Pictures!

And if we aren't friends on Facebook yet, please Friend me!

After ALA, I traveled Louisiana for another 5 days and went on a swamp tour on Bull Run Bayou and to Nottaway Plantation, and the LDS Temple in Baton Rouge, and visited friends on Bayou Long, and did some filming for my book trailer for my upcoming book, Circle of Secrets. Fun stuff!

So more pictures coming later this week! Stay tuned!

What fun. It's so fun to visit the locale of your creations. I did that last summer. =D

Great pictures.

Oh, such fun, and look at those smiles! From far away in Australia, events like these look like a ball.

You must have had a ball visiting the places that inspired you. When I was visiting friends in Connecticut in February and wading through the snow, little did I know I was doing research for the next book I'd end up writing!

Ooh, I'm so jealous! It looks like it was tremendous fun. I hope I get to go next year!! :D

How awesome that it was in New Orleans, giving you the chance to visit the bayou. That makes me EXTRA jealous. :D

Have preordered Circle of Secrets--can't wait to see the book trailer. :)

Thanks, Donna! And where did you go last year? You didn't say . . . :-)

Smiles were everywhere, Amie, that's for sure!

I'm sure you'll be there, Meg, with bells on! And there are spots in the French Quarter where you can get a swamp tour right from there, or ask your hotel. I've been on 6 swamp tours now and every time I go to a different area of Louisiana on a different bayou, they are all so unique. And wow, thanks for pre-ordering! You're such a doll!

(Did I ever send you a link to The Healing Spell book trailer? Now I can't remember, but here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5k4VaODgUuA

My friends who helped me with it did such an awesome job. :-)
