Kami started the day on the Paranormal panel, with our pal Aaron Hartzler as the moderator, and Nancy Holder (WICKED) right there with her.

That's Aaron, Carol Snow, Nancy, and Kami…

That's Doreen and Carmen. They made sure we didn't get lost in the 130,000 person crowd…

And that's my iphone paparazzi photo of David Levithan (L) and John Green (R) signing after their panel, in the tent next door to us.

My fantasy panel was in the afternoon, when I track down a photo of it I'll put it up. Aside from what you see here, imagine authors eating cheese cubes in the Green Room, or as we like to say, the John Green room. We ate lunch there with Gayle Forman and Jandy Nelson and Nancy Holder, and then went with Gayle and Kami to the amazing Sonya Sones' for dinner with John Green, David Levithan, and Kaleb Nation. Many hijinks ensued.

And I'll leave you with this pix of me with three of my favorite people: Pseudonymous Bosch, Aaron Hartzler aka Oprah, and Kam. (Thanks for letting me steal it, Aaronoprah!)

Started off trailing my forever BFF, Pseudonymous Bosch, into his panel with (L to R) Gordon Korman, Neil Shusterman, Bosch, & D. J. MacHale. Pseudonymous was being anonymous.

Sold-out crowd, by the way (that one empty chair was me…)

Crashed in the Green Room with all the Diet Coke a girl could ever want, then headed out with Kami, Alex, and Yvette to see Heather Brewer, Richelle Mead, Rachel Caine, and Melissa de la Cruz. Aaron Hartzler was moderating and he is superfly. Minions were out in full force.

This was followed by more green room cheese cubes and Diet Cokes, meeting some of the Vamp Girls from above, and many more escapades that will have to wait for Alex to upload his photos…including YALAPALOOZA with Cecil Castellucci, meeting John Green and David Levithan and Robin Benway, and all the thousand things I am forgetting.

Alybee, Khymom, Kami and I were hanging out near the Vampgirls YA Stage.

Finally:

Kami and I went to dinner at the W with Heather Brewer and…

Rachel Caine, who were good sports about all the fangirling. Maybe the pizza helped. We were all starving! Hopefully tomorrow will be just as fun. I have one panel and three hours of signing, so at least I hope I will get to meet up with some BC fans. The ones I met today were awesome… More later, xo M
