On Saturday morning, I headed to Battery Park on a blustery winter day to take part in the RoleMommy at the Ritz mother/daughter brunch. The event was hosted by publicist extraordinaire Beth Feldman, who runs the RoleMommy.com blog. There was a great group of people in attendance - moms, daughters, bloggers, other authors and even a troupe of children's performers. We mixed and mingled and ate a delicious brunch. I talked about my book, Gamer Girl, and why I wrote on the subjects of bullyinig and girl gaming.
I met some great people - a woman running a site called Fortune Girls - an amazing site for tweens - you so have to check it out. Barbara was so dynamic, her enthusiasm was catchy! I only wish I could have met her daughter, who designed the fortune girls themselves. She's very talented, as you will see.
I also met the owner of another tween style site called Sophie, designed for girls from 13-17. She also had a lot of amazing ideas. I look forward to speaking with her further in the future.
I did a Podcast with Manic Mommies, which you can find on their website, though I'm embarassed cause I hate the sound of my voice. They were really cool though. The one who interviewed me is a gamer girl herself and a lover of vampires. My soul mate! :)
Here are a few photos from the event!

Junior Reporter on the case!
Me, talking to the group. I really love that dress and wear it whenever I can. I actually wore it on my very first date with Jacob so I consider it lucky, too! (But I digress!)
Me, Beth and a wonderful tween named Angelica. I gave her a copy of my book cause she was so cute.
All in all, it was a great event and I'm glad I had the chance to participate. It's also led to some great future opportunities that I will be talking about soon!
