All My Bags Are Packed, I'm Ready to Go

I'm leaving on a redeye tonight for a quick business trip to New York City. I can't begin to tell you how much I'm looking forward to the East Coast winter.

Item One on the agenda is a presentation that Editor Charlie, literary agent Kate Lee and I will be giving for the Bookbinders' Guild of New York, which has a monthly meeting on topics of interest to its publishing industry members (not all of whom, I gather, are directly involved with the physical binding of books). Tuesday's topic is "Which Came First: The Book or the Blog?" Editor Charlie and I will talk about how Mom's Cancer happened and, I think, some of the special issues involved in publishing graphic novels. Right now, he and I are struggling mightily to figure out why the PowerPoint slides I sent him aren't working. It's very possible my talk will be illustrated with shadow puppets.

Items Two through Seventeen consist of some other business, and with luck I'll get a bit of personal time on Wednesday to complete a little pilgrimage. We'll see if my schedule and the weather cooperate.

Pictures to come, I'm sure. I like New York.

I'm hearing all kinds of awful things about air travel into and out of eastern seaboard cities in the current blizzard conditions, and hope that things are going okay for you.

Or at least that you brought along plenty of stuff to read.

Gosh, yes! Hope the weather isn't causing problems.

New York! I'm so envious. Take (and post) lots of pictures!
