In the Apple

A busy week. So much to report, so little time.

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.

I am really happy for you. It's like all that work from your whole life FINALLY paid off and you're all famous like you should be. ;) Awesome. Every friend I have is reading one of my various copies of the series, I have none left for myself at the moment!

Re: Book making.
Interesting! Thanks for pointing to that. I wonder how much it has changed in present processes.

I also wonder if any of those "girls" ever got their child arms caught in those unprotected machine arms. One of them looked suspiciously like a "boy." The times they are a' changin'.

Player currently known as Prince
Nakamura is excellent. Not really a need position, but the Giants should be very happy with him.

Sounds like a great time at the Gala. Congrats on that, and on finishing the book.

I can't wait!

What an honor to be reading the livejournal of one of the world's top 100, haha! Managed to find a copy of Time here in Tokyo and showed off how my favorite author was being recognized. I've even managed to get most of friends over here to read your works, so there were many a sake glass raised in your honor.
Glad you're having a great time, and can't wait for the new book!

Nice! I'm so excited, and congratulations with getting recognized by Time in Time 100.
