Where has the time gone? It seems I've just come back from BEA and New York, and next weekend its off to ALA. Not that I'm complaining. This year's American Library Association get together will take place in a little town called Las Vegas, Nevada. Vegas, baby!
I'm doubly excited to be going this year because 1.) Las Vegas! I've never been to Vegas before; it's sure to be exciting, if I'm not blinded by the billions of neon lights. And 2.) Not to be spoilery or anything, but the book I'm working on right now takes place in Las Vegas. So hey, research! What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right?
This year, ALA will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Convention Center. My signing is on Saturday, June 28th, from 1-2 pm, at the Harlequin Booth 363. You can find out more on the ALA website here. I, apparently, will be staying at The Venetian. I've never been to The Venetian, of course. When I got my travel itinerary, I saw the name of the hotel on the schedule and didn't think much of it. Then, just today in fact, I started searching for pictures of The Venetian for this post and....
Holy cow. That's the Venetian? I'm staying HERE? Surely not, that thing is a palace. You mean I'll be staying at the hotel with this?
In the hotel. You can take a gondola ride IN the hotel. I mean, really? *Checks travel itinerary.* Yup, it does indeed say I'm staying at the Venetian. So, yeah. Wow. I guess I should take lots of pictures of this trip. Has anyone been to The Venetian before? Did you ride the gondola? Is it as amazing as it looks? I've heard the gondola drivers will even sing if you ask them to. =)
See you in Vegas!
