So anyway, I interviewed Meg Cabot over the phone on Wednesday, and she was extremely nice and very funny. And when I asked her when some of her new books are coming out over here, she asked for my address and said she'd send me some copies, because she has loads to spare. This was pretty nice of her, so I gave her my address, but I fully expected never to see those books, because you know, she's a busy author and all that.
But what should be on my desk this morning, but a huge package from New York, packed with loads of books, some of which aren't even out in the US yet! All signed and everything - and sent by Ms Cabot herself in a post office, not by some publisher's minion. I am giddy with glee at the thought of all the goofy, girly entertainment which now awaits me. Now, that's a way to treat the public -or the press - when you are a best-selling writer
Thank you, Meg Cabot! You're a princess yourself.
