Whew! I feel a little bit more than a little bit like that guy over there. Notice how the polar bear is propped up on the balls of his feet? I have that going on. The heels of my feet desperately want to defect to a much more stationary individual.
But! All achy body, super exhausted whining aside, what an absolutely incredible weekend BEA was! I met up with coworkers from the past, clients, people I hope to work with in the future, Diary of an Eccentric, Savvy Verse and Wit, Booking Mama, Stephanie's Written Word, Book Club Girl, Beth Fish Reads, Maw Books, My Friend Amy, She Is Too Fond of Books, The Tome Traveller, Bermuda Onion, Everyday I Write the Book, and Mother Reader. If I missed naming someone, please let me know! I was so excited to meet everyone that I tried to write some quick notes to make sure I didn't miss mentioning anyone, but it may have inadvertently happened.
As promised, I picked up lots of schwag, books, bags and baubles, so keep an eye on my blog for the upcoming giveaways! I want to make certain everyone feels a little BEA love. ;-) Of course, it was all too much to carry and I had to have them shipped, so I'm not certain how long they will take to arrive.
But for now, I will be getting caught up on my RSS feed reader, commenting like crazy, and finding out what you all have been up to. I've missed the online world during my little hiatus and I'm happy to be back!
So what should my first giveaway be? A YA book, a tote bag, a fancy puzzle book, a mouse pad, fantasy book, general fiction...
