Author Sighting: Lunch with Elana Johnson (POSSESSION)

Elana Johnson (r) and Me
I've been meaning to put together this post for about two weeks, but came down with a virus, followed by a head cold, so I am just getting around to posting.

About three weeks ago, I received an email from Dawn Ryan at Simon and Schuster with an invite to attend an exclusive lunch with author Elana Johnson and several other bloggers on 14 May. I don't think I can describe how excited I was! Even though I live in Philly and the event was being held in New York City, I was not going to turn down such a great opportunity.

I met Damaris from Good Choice Reading, another blogger who was attending, in New Jersey where she lives and we drove the rest of the way to NYC together. After fighting city traffic (and a Passover parade), we finally made it to Bill's Bar and Burger in Rockefeller Center.

Once there, I met Elana Johnson, Dawn Ryan and two other ladies from Simon and Schuster, as well as Rachel from Bookshelf Lust. I had a great time, tasting various milkshakes (my favorite was the Thin Mint, of course) and discussing POSSESSION, the dystopian genre, favorite reads (so far) of 2011, and Elana's path to publication.

I am so happy I got the opportunity to meet everyone, especially since I made some new blogger friends!

I am also very excited to be participating in Elana Johnson's Pre Launch Blog Tour of POSSESSION, so make sure you stop back by on May 25th.  I'll be holding a contest for an ARC of POSSESSION, posting my review and other fun stuff! Don't miss it!
