Nothing like forgetting your TV outfit at home to make you nervous!

Yep–in an effort not to wrinkle my suit before shoving it into a suitcase I left it all steam pressed and neat…hanging in the closet in Los Angeles.

Mad props to the sales lady at Saks in Indianapolis for helping me pick out an outfit on Sunday 20 minutes before closing time!

See more……………..

In the green room at WISH TV 8 in my hometown, Indianapolis!

And the Colts Cheerleader was super nice to me!

Go Colts!

Join me as I bite my fingernails.

Am I dressed okay? This place is pretty fancy.

BTW, meeting in person with your editor and publicist is very, very important. They may try and discourage you from doing it, since you’re going to be traveling on your own dime (see the earlier post about the Carlton Arms Hotel!) but insist.

That face-to-face contact and personal touch is crucial.

I convinced them to let me come and talk to them since I was coming for a business meeting anyway. That was true at the time. But the Perigee meeting went so well, my friend and I skipped the business meeting (we were just attendees in an audience, it’s not like we were the keynote speakers or anything) and went to Coney Island and rode the Wonder Wheel instead!

I’m finally here!

I’m so excited!

I’m going to meet with John Duff, our editor, and Angela Januzzi, our publicist!

Don’t tell them I threw up just before I got in the cab, okay?

The book is DONE! Before we head, tires screeching, over to Fed Ex Office to print our celebratory copies, we start with a Snoopy Dance!

Watch the video and do your own Snoopy dance!
