I had a day full of awesome fun. After wandering around Broadway for a little while, I met up with Julie at Port Authority and we headed over to one of the many Christmas markets. I snagged a present for a friend and some tea and we headed down to the Sidewalk Cafe to meet Mitali and have a generally good time!
And let me tell you - it was awesome.
Libba Bray and Tiger Beat!
LOOK AT THE LOVE.
I also ran into Rachael and made a fool of myself by fangirling over Barry Goldblatt. (He claims I didn't. I think he lies, because he's a sweetheart and I'm insane.)

Other people I met who you people would like include Melissa Miller, the associate editor at HarperCollins, and Brooks Sherman, a literary agent at FinePrint Literary Management, as well as several people involved with Figment.
I know I met a lot of other cool people, but I can't remember all of them!
Anyway, check out the shiny new Soho Teen; it looks like it's going to be awesome.
