Lori (tnbbc) Ur welcome Vincent.

I already sent in my registration fee. I will be attending as a blogger, so I get to tour the floors at the expo and attend the blogger convention on that friday as well.

This is my first time attending an event like this, and I am really excited. I would love to know if anyone is planning on going. Wouldnt it be great to meet other goodreadians????

Rachel Thomson (rachelstarrthomson) | 7 comments I went to BookExpo in L.A. a while back ... six or seven years now. It's an awesome experience. I think writers should go just to get a visual take on what this thing called the publishing industry IS.

I'd love to go, but can't make it this year. My book "Sardinian Silver" will be there, however, at both the iUniverse and the AuthorsDen stands. Probably cheaper at the latter if you want to check it out!

Have fun,
Colin

Steven (tbones) | 408 comments hey exactly what is this Book Expo thing and where is it at this year. It sounds like something I'd love to go to and maybe take my wife and daughter to


message 9: by Lori (new)

Lori (tnbbc) Steven, the link is in the first post here. It's held in NYC.


message 10: by Steven (new)

Steven (tbones) | 408 comments Hey Lori, thanks for the links :o) I will check them out. I wish I didn't live so far from NYC now. I grew up on Long Island and used to work in Times Square for almost two years...I move all the way out west and that's when I find out about all the cool stuff going on in that town :o/
I think they should hold one out this way someday, up in Seattle...we have a lot of authors out here on the westcoast that would love to attend that convention.
