In which I am not here

Nope, not even close. This week I am in New York, meeting up with my agent and getting a formal introduction to my fabulous new publisher! In addition to visiting the offices of NAL/Penguin for the first time, I’m getting another first–the first time my husband and I have ever seen the city just the two of us. Our previous trips have all been solo business endeavors or family trips taken with our daughter. So, this time we’re hitting some research spots for me and visiting a few favorites as well as checking out sites that are new to us.

On the itinerary:

*Aedes de Venustas–for a bottle of perfume, the perfect souvenir since it will last for months!

*The Evolution Store–a great stop for natural history buffs.

*The Metropolitan Museum of Art–to catch the “Death Becomes Her” exhibit of mourning wear from the Victorian period.

*Pearl River Mart–one of my favorite places to shop for Asian imports.

*Bosie Tea Parlour–a new find I hope to add to my list of faves.

*Red Rocket Tattoo–husband already has a tattoo from here; this time it’s my turn! Will post pics when the ink is done. (It’s a custom piece for my inner forearm.)

*The Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder–our one foray onto Broadway this trip. It’s Victorian; it’s murder. Three guesses who picked it?

*American Ballet Theater–three different pieces set to the music of Bach and Offenbach with costumes by Christian Lacroix.

*Laduree–simply the best macarons this side of Paris. Probably because they COME from Paris.

*A Salt and Battery–I’ve been craving good fish and chips for months now, and these are supposed to be the best in the city. They’ll have to hold me until the London trip next summer!

    Sounds like a wonderful trip – enjoy!

    The last time my husband and I were in NY it was to chaperone our daughter’s high school band when they marched in the Macy’s Parade.We did get to see the Radio City Music Hall Christmas show, however, and found out that Christmas is a lovely time to be in NY.

    Lucky you! I would love to visit New York, it is one of the things I am planning to do when I retire. Best wishes for your trip and your meeting with the new publisher. I hope it all goes well.
