New York City Class of 2k10 Tour

Well, I'm on the flip side of a 35 blog tour to promote the launch of UMS. Many thanks to Tami for holding down the fort so well here at YAedge. ;) I met many cool bloggers and supportive YA readers. But it has been a bumpy ride. A production delay with UMS means the books weren't physically ready on the launch date. Not fun. I'm hoping they'll be completed this week. *fingers and butt cheeks crossed!*

In the meantime, I'm starting to wig out about Book Expo and all the cool things the Class of 2k10 has planned. The itty bitty details on the Class of 2k10 NYC tour might change, but here are the appearances so far. We're also solidifying a blogger lunch and once it comes down the pipe, I'll share the info. If any YAedgers are going to BEA - come on out to one (or all!) of these events. And if you know any good karaoke bars in NYC - I'm there. Can't wait!
