What do authors, editors and New Moon have in common? My weekend!

I know a lot of you out there aren't so into the Twilight thing, but I am a very big fan, and proud of it. Which of course means I went to the midnight show last night. It was perfection. I won't gush too much but I can tell you it was a thousand times better than Twilight and it was very true to the book. I cannot wait to see it again Sunday to really digest it all. Yep, I said Sunday. Two times in one week. It was sooo worth the 3.5 hours of sleep I got last night.

Now, to continue with my fan girl theme in a whole different way...

I have to head to bed super early tonight so that I can actually wake up in time tomorrow. My sister Jenn and I are heading out at about 5:45 am for Philadelphia to meet the fantastic author of Hush, Hush, Becca Fitzpatrick, and the equally amazing editor, Emily Meehan, from Simon & Schuster who worked on Hush, Hush. I'm extremely grateful that both of them are so gracious to make the time to meet with us. As both an aspiring writer and major fan of Becca, Hush, Hush and the books Simon & Schuster produce, this is way better than meeting any A-list celebrity. Hello, a NYT best selling author and a rock star editor. Um, yeah, no question this will be awesome.

Off to take a nap then let the weekend continue with all its fabulousness...

Oh man! You are SO living the life! I just bought Hush Hush and can't wait to read it. Wish I could jet myself over and be your tag-along.
