Footloose at FAME

When last we blogged, we were in Florida, HERE. And we still are! (Well, at least in Blog World.)

One of the coolest things about all the travel is getting to meet other authors, like James Preller and Paul Griffin . . .

During the FAME conference our friend Tracy had some exciting news -- Cindi Lauper was in the building! Since Tracy is a HUGE Cindi Lauper fan, she thought of a brilliant way to meet her . . . give the singer a book. And why not? Girls just want to have fun, right?


Oh! And I don't want to forget this -- I signed my first iPad as seen HERE . . .


Why, look! Here I am with Roland Smith and Gordon Korman again. We're all part of the Scholastic Family and the three of us were signing at the Scholastic Book Fairs booth . . .


Hey, Lisa, what's that you're holding? Why, it's a special Book Fairs paperback version of WARP SPEED!


The Book Fairs bunch was so enthusiastic. However, they confused the FAME conference with this FAME . . .

. . . and would periodically break out dancing . . .

(Or perhaps they thought they were starring in the remake of Footloose? I can totally see them starring in the movie, can't you?)

All too soon it was back to the airport. We shared a ride with author David Macinnis Gill and librarian Cecelia Solomon was kind enough to drive us . . .
