ABA Winter Institute, Kansas City

PenandInk

copy{writer} – fiction & publishing

Just back from snowy Kansas City, where I had a fantastic time at the American Bookseller’s Association Winter Institute. I think I was lucky in getting out of the city yesterday morning; I’m hearing lots of folks had their flights cancelled and are still waiting out the latest snowstorm.

What an awesome event. Fellow Grove author Kent Wascom and I were treated in high style and met with hundreds of booksellers. We signed galleys and had the opportunity to preview dozens of exciting new titles from writers across all genres. Very, very cool. Thank you, Grove!

Here’s a photo of several of us freezing outside the hotel: from left to right–me, Alise Hamilton of Andover Bookstore; the inimitable Sherman Alexie; Grove Publisher Judy Hottensen (eyes closed, sorry Judy); and BLOOD OF HEAVEN author Kent Wascom.
