I [heart] librarians.
Last night Jim and I drove up to Tacoma, Washington to hang out with school librarians. To be more precise, the Tacoma chapter of the Washington Library Media Association invited us to speak, eat dinner and sign advance copies of Blackbringer that Putnam had sent them. How cool is that? It was a wonderful event -- we had so much fun (and the food was great!). On the way there we stopped at Radio Shack and bought a digital voice recorder and we recorded our talks, and this weekend Jim is going to figure out how to post a podcast so anyone who wants to can hear me talk about struggling with perfectionism, my teenage yearnings to be a tormented "artiste," the Millenium Falcon, and more, and hear Jim talk about doing the art for the book, and also about the first time he ever used a microphone (hint: it was at K-Mart).
Can I just say: I love signing my book. Love it. And I love speaking to groups of librarians -- they totally laugh at my jokes! Oh -- and the librarian who had organized the dinner asked me in an email if I would be wearing polka dots (could I be getting a polka-dotted reputation?), and so I did. Remember these? They were a hit!
Now -- I have a question for you. What do you think of this Laini's Lady design?
Be absolutely honest. The cat head, the human hand, the look of the cat, everything: like? Don't like? Please, even if you don't usually leave comments, I'd love to know. Thank you!!
