I Never Knew There Was So Much I Never Knew

Turns out I may be a techie (as far as that goes; I couldn't hold a candle to Husby the technogod), but there ARE limits. Blogging on a Palm TX with a small folding IR keyboard and a dodgy wifi connection is truly an exercise in patience.

So I'm blogging about my book/author/publisher experiences at the MIPA site:

I hope you'll come check it out. Meanwhile, I'm celebrating the recent milestones in my weeklong stay here: seeing Times Square when it's not nearly midnight on New Year's Eve, giving someone else directions (ha!) and riding the subway for the first time.

It's nice when the little things satisfy me.

Start Spreading the News...

I leave for NYC tomorrow to attend PMA University (think college for publishers) and BEA - Book Expo America - the largest English-speaking book trade show in the world.

The plan (yeah, right) is that I'll take a few minutes each evening to blog about the events of the day, with a few highlights from the classes I'm attending. More details from the classes will come after I return home and catch up on a week of missed sleep.

You can follow along with what I'm learning as both an author and a publisher on either of two different blogs:

Yaldah Publishing (of course), at

and the MIPA (Midwest Independent Publishers Association) blog at

Next check-in from New York!
