I know we have a thread for authors (with their books) already, but here's a list of books I've found will be given away as galley drops:

Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein (Disney-Hyperion)
The Lockwood & Co: Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud (Disney-Hyperion)
Gallagher Girls #6 by Ally Carter* (Disney-Hyperion)
The Enchanter Heir by Cinda Williams Chima

* are for galley drops/author signings

The Girl with the Iron Touch by Kady Cross (Harlequin)

Odds are Kady will be there signing since she's signed every other year.

Shut. The. Front. Door.

The Enchanter Heir?

DIVERGENT #3????

How will I be able to stand myself over the next two months?

I'll believe Divergent 3 when I see it. I have a feeling all its going to be is a cover/title reveal or something like that.

Such a Debbie Downer. *SIGH*

Yeah, it might be a long shot, but HC shocked everyone at ALA last year with ARCs of Unravel Me, but they limited it to 100 copies only. I could see them doing something similar.

But that was a shock because it didn't come out for another 9 months, thats a LOT of lead time for an ARC, especially for HC. Don't get me wrong, I would DIE if it was there and then I would have photo shoots with it and not let it out of my sight, but I'm terrified of being super hopeful for it and then nadda.

I just saw this at Veronica Roth's website:

How can I get an ARC (advance reader's copy) of Book 3?
Sorry to disappoint, but there won't be any ARCs of Book 3. But there will be plenty of fun things to bide your time with until the final copy comes out! More on that later.


Doesn't look like Divergent #3 will be there after all.

Stop laughing, Nicole.

Who said I was laughing? I'm just as bummed about it as you are.

I will smirk and say that I was right.

Jessica | Secrets of the Stories (secretofthestories) | 119 comments SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! ALLY CARTER IS GOING TO BE THERE WITH GG6!?!?!? I'm so obsessed with this series!!!! *is officially crying* because I cannot go this year at all!!!!! :( If someone can pick up a copy of that for me I'd be eternally grateful!

message 14: by Jessica | (new)

Jessica | Secrets of the Stories (secretofthestories) | 119 comments You're the best everr.. I just want to read it. Idk when it's coming out, but even waiting til June is torture. I have to read the whole series again before it comes out... I almost have book 1 memorized because I do this every time a new one comes out (means I'm reading book 1 for the 6th time, book 2 for the 5th time, etc.) I'm reallyyyy in love with the series lol. She almost always comes to my town for a signing of the new ones too, but Perfect Scoundrels tour this year did not have a PA stop, it was very upsetting because I would have been able to go this year, unlike the past 2 years when she was here the week after my college's spring break. I'm hoping she comes around here next spring though so I can have her sign the whole GG series.

Hannah McBride (ideally_hannah) | 620 comments Mod
Wow, I have not read this series! Clearly I need to look into it!

Jennifer Castle tweeted earlier: "I'll be signing YOU LOOK DIFFERENT IN REAL LIFE at @BookExpoAmerica Thurs 5/30, 2:30pm to 3:00pm, Autograph Table 9. Can't wait!"

So there's one signing we know about! Woohoo!

Amy Tan: The Valley of Amazement
William Boyd: James Bond; The New Mission

Oh, awesome! And Hi, Norwegian Book Girl! I totally forgot your name, but we met on Day 1 at BEA last year waiting in line to get in. LOL


message 20: by NorwegianBook (new)

NorwegianBook (norwegianbookgirl) | 16 comments Hi :) That's right. Spent a lot of time in line. This year there will be more Norwegian bookbloggers.

I have been going through catalogs on Edelweiss, and some books have their marketingplans lined up with BEA as one of them.

message 22: by Jay (new)

Jay oh man.. I had my hopes up for a tiny bit about Divergent#3.. so there won't be any ARCs at all? bummer. So happy for the galley drop of GG6!!

Krista (kristasdustjacket) | 254 comments Mod
Just saw that Cora Carmack will be signing copies of Losing It for sure. She may also have copies of Faking It by then too!

Not entirely sure they'll do a galley drop, but there will definitely be a signing. :)

She isn't listed on the sneak peek list, but I can't imagine her NOT signing. Last year she was part of the HarperCollins "Dark Days" signing. If she signs something, odds are it will be a paperback of Divergent since she said there won't be arcs of #3. But I'd lay odds on her signing in the publisher's booth.


message 28: by Jackie (new)

Jackie Ruiz | 51 comments Yay ! Thanks :)

That would be awesome! I signed up for the breakfast, so we'll see...might just be a dang poster or something though :)

Yeah, but Veronica Roth said they aren't printing any arcs of Divergent #3. Odds are it will be a cover reveal (like they did with FINALE) last year and her signing book 1.

Maaaybe? But they're supposed to be filming this summer. I doubt any of them would be able to get away for BEA.

The widget for Allgient says the cover reveal is happening in May. I'm guessing it'll be at BEA. ;)

I'm totally lost. Now, under the book list at the BEA site, it says DIVERGENT III.

So it will be there????

I think it's listed because Roth will be talking about it at the Children's Author Breakfast.

^ This. Rick Riordan won't have House of Hades with him either. Last I checked his website, he wasn't even completely done writing it yet. But, he'll be discussing it.


message 42: by Hannah (new)

Hannah McBride (ideally_hannah) | 620 comments Mod
Hmmmm ... I don't care either way. Unless someone walked up and handed me a copy of Divergent 3, I would stay FAR away from that line. That will be insane.

Same thing with Cassandra Clare's line. Thank goodness they ticketed her.


message 43: by Kelly (new)

Kelly Hager (khager) | 38 comments I don't know where or when, but Megan McCafferty says that the first Jessica Darling prequel will be at BEA. I know Little, Brown doesn't announce galley drops, so if anyone sees it, please Tweet me ASAP. (@khager) I plan to stalk the crap out of their booth, though. :)


message 44: by Nicole (new)

Nicole | 195 comments Mod
Not necessarily, Galley Drops can be announced. Penguin hands out a card in the mornings letting you know when and where. Disney can be a little bit more sneaky about it by saying once in the mornings, mid day and afternoon. On the last day, Disney had FC of Code Name Verity which was a surprise. Simon will tell you when you ask (at least they did last year, maybe they had a thing and I didn't see it.)

So to answer your questions, Its a little of both.

Lexie (poisonedrationality) | 657 comments Mod
Also some places--Penguin Teen, HarperTeen, HarlequinTeen--will have posts on their twitter or blog with their galley drops.


message 46: by Lexie (new)

Lexie (poisonedrationality) | 657 comments Mod
oh trust me they kind of expect that (by now) I think. One booth (Yen Press/Orbit) tends to have the same folks in charge year to year and the one guy, Alex, sees me and rolls his eyes, tending to answer my questions before I ask them (since they tend to be the same thing). 'Yes that is coming out, no I don't know if we have that, yes you should check this out, and did you see this book by that author?'

HarperCollins handed out papers with galley drop times too

Perusing Edelweiss and I stumbled across these books that are listed as titles that will have promotion at BEA:

-Blythewood by Carol Goodman
-All The Truth That's In Me by Julie Berry
-Frozen by Melissa de la Cruz


message 49: by Kelly (new)

Kelly Hager (khager) | 38 comments I want Blythewood SO MUCH. I love Carol Goodman. (Hannah---Thursday, my blog will have a "Books I Would Bite People For At BEA" list. ;) )
