Book Expo America!

Posted by Caitie F on May 13, 2011

So BEA is coming up later this month, and…I am going! It was tentative for the last couple of months, but I didn’t want to get my hopes up if it fell through and I didn’t say anything.

It looks like I am going, which I am really excited about. I am going to try to not get books unless they are on the top of my list. I have read so much about bloggers behaving badly when it comes to the ARCs that I just don’t want to get sucked in.

I have three main goals at BEA

1. Go to panels on the industry (especially the parts I am really interested in) take some notes, ask some question,s and think about the suture of publishing and my place in it. Then I will blog about it. I am hoping to get a couple weeks worth of blogs on industry related topics. I just need to figure out what I want to go to and when/where it is. Uhh…if anyone has anything, please help!

2. Network…network…network. I want to meet people, talk to them about publishing, and knock their socks off!

3. Meet some bloggers! I am not going to the BBC, but hope to meet some people at the conference. If you are going, let me know in the comments and we can see if we can set something up!

If you have any tips on the conference, let me know!

    Can’t wait to meet you! I just put up my BEA tips the other day. 🙂

  2. Yay! You’ll have a great time! Most bloggers behave well – it’s only a few who behave badly.

  3. Fantastic! There’s a panel on Tuesday morning, 10 a.m., called “Online Book Discovery: What Is Driving the Conversation?” that I am planning to attend — that might be a good one.

    Can’t wait to meet you!

    I’m still working through my own plans but this year I want to get to as many audio book related events as possible – I missed out on some great ones last year!
