IRA and Toronto wrap-up, Podcast, and Party Pics

I'm back in NYC after being gone to Toronto and Boston for a week. It's been a busy, productive, and fun week. First off, I wanted to highlight an interview that I did with Peter Brown about the author/editor relationship during IRA over at Just One More Book. Hear it here.

And then I wrote a way-too-long wrap-up of Toronto and IRA on my personal blog here.

And finally, Grace's party was a huge success and a whole lot of fun. I'm sure Grace and the other BRGs will be posting wrap-ups, but for now I'll just post some pics. Check them out! We had bloggers, teachers, librarians, children's book authors and illustrators, friends, six of the seven BRGs (we missed you, Meghan!), and lots and lots of cupcakes. Thanks everyone for coming.

The Blue Rose Girls (minus Meghan)!

If you took pictures at the party, please email them to us at Bluerosegirls at gmail dot com. Happy Birthday, Grace! We're thinking good thoughts for you and Robert out in San Antonio.

You girls sure know how to throw a party! Looks like it was a great success, and a lot of fun. I'm sure the book enjoy just as much success.

Warm wishes,
