Julie  (julieheartsbooks) | 38 comments I'm already frustrated that they only seem to want to bring the huge names. *sigh*

Patrycja | 29 comments Oh. They finally added genre next to the title! This is so useful!!!

@julie - I'm hoping that in booth will be more debut/less big name friendly.

@patrycja - yes! It's a good starting point since sometimes it's not always apparent, especially with crossover authors

Depends on which pass you got! If you got the standard pass - its First come, First Serve in the morning (starting at 7:15am) of the signing for ticketed authors, but from what I understand there isn't a cap on how many tickets you can get (I've never had a cap at least)

Avid Reader Pass - aside from the 1 front of line pass you get to choose up to 4 ticketed authors a day to receive ahead of the crowd.

Reader Pass you get the 1 front of the line pass.

It looks like they're being more transparent about rules - the show info page definitely has actual information as opposed to "it happens".

I can’t properly link easily since I’m on my phone, but Natasha Ngan will be at BookExpo/BookCon with her sequel ARCs. Joan He also commented she’ll be at BookCon, but not sure if it’s in an official context or not.

BookCon's shared their list of author autographings you have to get tickets for and the general rules, for anyone who wants to start plotting out for that. (Way too many authors who don't have brand new releases require book purchases, IMO)
