Dont' forget to watch my twitter for spontaneous BEA Book Combustion - AKA random book giveaways.

Pictorial Representation of my time at BEA!
Here's me with the adorable Joanne S. Volpe,
literary agent and genius at Nancy Coffey. She's just as nice and cute in person as online. Query her! She rocks! You can follow her on Twitter for scoop!
Here is my and Kody Keplinger (author of The Duff - surely you've heard about it! ) meeting in person for the first time. Though we've been blogger buddies for a while. I'm so happy for her! Go follow her blog!
Here is my Hilary Wagner's wonderful book Nightshade City at the Holiday House booth. Put this one on your reading list people because Rick Riordan just blurbed it!
Oh and here are my BEA Partners in Crime,
Shana Silver and Jen Hayley (part of YA Rebels). I love these girls...
I know, they look all sweet and innocent, but don't let that fool you. They were serious BEAers. They did not play. Shana even had a spreadsheet printed for all of us when we got their with signings, galley giveaways. She even said, "If we lose you, you are on your own!" She's definitely on my team again next year.
Here's Holly Cupala and I getting coffee. Yes there was a Starbucks conveniently in the building. So when we got tired, we would get a caffeine drip and get back to business. BTW her book, Tell Me A Secret, is awesome and just coming out this month. Not to mention, she is just as sweet as she looks :)
How cool is this - I met the Ghost Hunters!
Need I say more.....
Michelle Zink - one of my fav authors. Ready for this?
She actually knew me from my blog! Crazy right?
I was freaking out inside, but look how calm and collected I look. She was so supportive and chit-chatty. Love her.
I have to say, this one was especially a highlight for me. Alyson Noel was signing her new tween paranormal, Radiance. She recognized from my blog picture. INSANE! I was first in line and when she sat down, she said, "Hey Shelli!"
And of course I have to rub it in!!!! ;) Here is my stash!!!!
Jealous? Don't be.
I'm only keeping about a 1/3 of this.
The rest, along with the Swag pile, goes to all of my faithful followers this month - so keep visiting daily.
Since I hung out with Kody (and her agent Joanna) at BEA. Today, you can win an ARC of her book, THE DUFF. Comment and tell me the book you are most anticipating for Fall 2010 and why!
Come back tomorrow because I am announcing my Agent Pitch Contest with (Bree Ogden at Martin Literary) and what you need to do to prepare for Monday's entries!!
