I know it seems ThrillerFest is far away. July seems far off as I look out my window and see gray skies. I still have BEA to prepare for and about 3 other conventions before ThrillerFest gets here, but I know from experience that it is best to think ahead.
I keep looking at the list of authors who will be attending. Some are my clients and I know I want to touch base with them. Some are dear friends and some of them I am a total fan-girl for and plan on getting autographs and sneaking in some pictures I can brag about later of course! lol
I have paid my registration, put together books I want to bring to have signed and am now booking my flight. I don't know if I will fly or take the train. That's what I'm looking into right now. By July I could actually drive to New York, but I don't want to have to drive IN New York if you know what I mean. lol
I'm still putting together a list of workshops I want to take and meetings I hope to make, but I know that if I wait until the last minute I won't be able to enjoy my experience as much. I like to plan ahead and relax while I'm there.
I am going to sign up for the big dinner at the end too. I know it's a little more money, but I went last year and it was so very worth it! It was one of the highlights of my experience. If you can do it, splurge a little. The food is great, the presentation is fun, entertaining and awe-inspiring. You won't regret it!
Be sure to check out the website often to see who is coming and what's going on as we get closer and closer to July!
