I forgot to mention that I’m sitting in a hotel just off Broadway (literally like half a block) for the PASIC conference. Last night was the cocktail reception, and we had like 90 industry guests to 73 authors. It was very cool. I didn’t have anything I was trying to pitch, so I was able to relax and enjoy myself and just have face time with people I know or wanted to meet. (And inhaling the finger foods the waiters kept bringing around)
And yes, you could really tell who were authors and who were editors/agents. Almost all the NYers were rocking their boots. I wore my purple ones, but no one would mistake my wide load for an editor. Sorry no pictures because the place was packed and I didn’t bring my camera. I know, bad author!
