Book Expo America 2013 Day 3 Recap
No video of my BEA books yet because of REASONS but it’ll be up…tomorrow, maybe? I’m waffling between making individual videos for each day/box of books or of combining everything into one huge video. Which is better? Smaller bite-sized videos, or one big one so you don’t have to click a million links? Previous recaps: Day 1 is here | Day 2 is here Day 3 of BEA was the last BEA day. It was also the Power Reader day: a day when the public could get in for like half price or something. There were a LOT of Power Readers, which was pretty cool! I met some very nice…
Book Expo America 2013 Day 2 Recap
Good news! My first box of books showed up yesterday afternoon. Huzzah! I’ve decided to do a video showcasing the books I got; that should be up tomorrow, if I can figure out how to edit it. No sign yet of boxes 2 and 3, but hopefully they’ll show up tomorrow so I can do another video this weekend. Yay! May 31, 2013 Day 2 of BEA started off much the same as Day 1, only this time I talked to some really nice people in the line into the exhibit hall. One of those people was Kris Alice Hohls, the founder of Germany’s only print romance magazine, Loveletter. So…
Book Expo America Day 1 Recap
My books have yet to show up from the east coast, so I can’t do any awesome book lists yet. But I CAN do recaps of events and some signings! Huzzah! I’m not going to do a precise blow-by-blow of every day, because I think that’s boring? But I’ll do some highlights. May 30, 2013 Day 1 of BEA got off to a good start: like always, the publishers put huge stacks of books right on the floor as the exhibit doors opened, so of course there’s a huge crush of people running for books. On the one hand, it’s dark comedy-hilarious: people are running/fighting/pushing for books! On the other…
Book Expo America 2011 Part 2: Wednesday-Friday
Part 1: Sunday-Tuesday Wednesday Wednesday was a big day for me. After finding out about all the stuff I had missed on Tuesday because I hadn’t prepped enough, I went all out and wrote up a list of things I wanted to go to and events happening throughout the day. That list was great for two reasons: 1) I didn’t feel like I was missing fun things and 2) it kept me busy for the whole day, so I wasn’t wandering around like a lost sheep or something.
Book Expo America 2011 Part 1: Sunday-Tuesday
I’m back from New York! And I’ve decided I’m going to break up my BEA post into three or four, just because I don’t think I can fit everything into one ginormous post. Duh. So: post the first and second is about my time spent in NYC in general. The third one will be about the books I got (and probably more about the authors/bloggers I met), and the fourth one will be tips and tricks for next year’s BEA. Okay! Let’s get started.
