Thankful Thursday - a successful shopping trip
The RWA Rita awards in NYC are just two weeks away, and in case you didn't hear the news, CHASING BROOKLYN is a finalist in the YA category. And apparently the Rita awards ceremony is a BIG deal and everyone really dresses to the nines!
I had bought a purple dress that was pretty but every time I tried it on, I thought - I will not be comfortable in this. It had little beads sewn all over it and I knew one wrong move and I'd have beads all over the floor.
I scoured the racks yesterday and luckily, I found a much simpler dress in the same color, which is good because I already had shoes, a bag, a wrap, etc. Plus, I saved $75.00! SCORE!!
I am so excited about my trip to New York City, I can hardly stand it. And remember, if you're in the area, I'll be signing books at Books of Wonder on Thursday, June 30th at 6:00 PM with three other YA authors. YAY!! I'd love it if you'd come and see me!!!!
