I am spending a lt of my time over at Bantam, working with my editor Anne Groell on copyediting and proofing A DANCE WITH DRAGONS to get all the ducks in a row for the July 12 pubdate. A lot of work in a short time frame, but it's going well. Sill have the appendix to nail down, which becomes first priority when I return home May 5.
Watching some of the NFL draft in spare moments, but I've been in such a crunch this year I did not do any of my usual prep, so I have no idea who most of these players are. The Jets and Giants have picked some people. Hope they're good. The Giants got a prince, I see. Not the one who just got married.
Visited the HBO Store yesterday. Incredibly cool, and the people running it were terrific. I signed all the copies of my book on hand, so if there are any New Yorkers reading this who would like an autographed copy, head over to HBO post haste.
All four volumes of the series are now on the NEW YORK TIMES bestseller list. I've got a lot to celebrate and I've been doing a lot of celebrating.
Oh, and of course, there was the TIME 100 Gala, where Phipps and I dressed up like grown-ups and hung out with some amazing people. More on that when we get home.
