Thank you to everyone who has commented on the book title post! Your comments have been very helpful. Please feel free to continue leaving your thoughts there. As soon as my publisher and I decide on a title, I’ll tell you. It probably won’t be until next week or later though because everyone is at the big Book Expo in New York this week. One well-placed dirty bomb could take out the entire American publishing industry. Let’s pray that no jilted copy editors have access to radioactive materials.
I also wanted to tell everyone that I’m going to BlogHer!
BlogHer is an annual blogging conference focused on female bloggers (though dudes can come too). It is being held July 27-29 this year in Chicago, which is so close to Indy that I really have no excuse not to go. It is also the place where my book editor heard about my blog last year, so it’s not only a good place to meet new friends and have fun, but an excellent networking opportunity. Get your business cards printed!
I’m going to take the train up, which amazingly will only cost me $32.40 round trip with my AAA discount. That’s kind of amazing when you consider how much gas and parking would cost if I drove up. I would also have to deal with Chicago traffic, which I find scary and intimidating. Those people are aggressive. I’m surprised they have not yet attached missile launchers to the hoods of their cars. It’s been a couple of years since I’ve been up there though, so maybe by now they have.
If anyone else is going to BlogHer and sees me around, feel free to come say hi to me. I can be somewhat timid in large social situations, so don’t make any sudden movements or loud noises, but I’d love to meet my readers. There are enough photos all over this place that you should be able to recognize me from all 360 degrees.
Now we shall return you to our regularly scheduled weight-loss blogging.
