This was my second year at NYCC and I don’t think it’s something that one gets used to. Granted, there were more people inside the Javits than live in my entire county, but they also collectively had on brighter colors than my Midwesterner’s eyes have seen in a lifetime of looking at stuff.
It was a great time. I found a LEGO booth that fit my style, and then Wonder Woman made out of Jelly Bellies, so that was all for the positive. Then I made my way over to the main gate and saw a swell of people so overwhelming that I found a place to hide under an escalator and just stayed there for a bit.
We did manage to find each other, which was a small miracle. We went to the room for our meetup and I was stunned to find out that the long line of people waiting outside were actually coming there to meet us, and not waiting for the bathroom, which had been my assumption.
60 kids came to meet us, and each one received an EpicReads tote with free copies of our books! We signed for them at a round table an answered questions about our books. It was a great time, and good for face to face with fans – much better than a panel, I think!
Want to help me with all the mailing costs? I do giveaways at least once week, sometimes more. It can add up. If you feel so inclined as to donate a little to defray my mailing costs, it would be much appreciated!
