Who: Me and Hannah from The Irish Banana (She'll be covering the Blogger side of things)
What: Pub Crawl 2013 (#PubCrawl2013)
Where: New York City Publishing Houses
When: Thursday, October 17, 2013 - ALL.DAY.LONG! (Seriously, it will be dark when we leave and dark when we get home again.)
Why: My birthday was last week and this is what I wanted to do to celebrate. Aside from eating cake, of course, which I did. PLUS, as a reader and an aspiring author, I'm curious about the behind the scenes of the publishing world, the brick and mortar, the cubicles and the post-it notes.
The seed for this idea was really planted waaaay back at BEA2013 during the Harlequin Teen breakfast when I met Executive Editor, Nataysha Wilson and she was like, "Let me know if you're ever in NYC, we'd love to have you stop by."
So, a few weeks later when Hannah and I were having dinner at Panera to discuss CampNaNo-ish things, I was like, "We should see if we can bounce around to the different publishers and ask them questions and stuff. It could be like a pub crawl but without the hangover the next day." And because Hannah gets me, she really, really gets me, she was like, "I'm on it!" And she was.
