It took almost 5 hours of driving, but I managed to get back in from Boskone just before dinner today.  I’m glad I managed to get in before the kids went to sleep.  Now I have hundreds of emails to read (after deleting spam), lots of things to pass along about the con, and hours of sleep to catch up on.  I think sleep wins.

Ending and Boskone 2007

It’s been a busy morning.  Since announcing that the store would be closing, I’ve received a steady stream of emails from customers, authors, publishers, and booksellers all lamenting the store’s passing and wishing us the best with the baby.  It’s been an emotionally draining week and I’m simply overwhelmed by all the kind words.  Thanks one and all.

Now that all this is happening, I’m kicking myself for not getting a table in the Dealer’s room at Boskone this week.  It would have been a good opportunity to sell off some inventory without having to do all the packing.  I was thinking though, I don’t need a table to get rid of some books.  If you’ll be there, just place an order before Thursday and I can bring them with me.  I don’t have to pack and you won’t have to pay shipping.  Something for everyone!

So, if you’ll be there and want books, buy now.  If you’ll be there and just want to say Hi, I’ll be there.
