KT’s Report from Book Expo 2017 Part 2 (#bookexpo2017)...

Jun 5, 2017 by

  For the most part, I spent my 2 days at Book Expo roaming the main floor and checking out everything the publishers had to offer. I did attend a few panels, mainly because I thought they would great tools for an author like me. Many of the panels listed talked about ways for authors and books to get noticed. I went to two panels- For Authors: Working with Independent Booksellers and Book Reviews: The Diversity of Race, Ethnicity, and Sexual Orientation. I attended For Authors: Working with Independent Booksellers first: “Developed for authors, this panel features booksellers who have formulated best practices for working together to create events that benefit both stores and authors. The session will cover a number of issues, from author publicity to dealing with pre-event nerves.” The reason I attended...

KT’s Report from Book Expo 2017 Part 1 (#bookexpo2017)...

Jun 4, 2017 by

  When Book Expo (better known as BEA aka Book Expo America) first came to New York City in 2009, I attended, and very year after, with the exception of last year when it was held in Chicago, IL. Once I heard Book Expo was headed back to NYC for 2017, I decided to attend the expo again on Thursday and Friday. It’s always a great time, and I love seeing all the publishers, authors, and industry types as they show off their upcoming release, host panels, and new publishing innovations. This year Book Expo was very “chill” and calm. It appeared (at least to me) there was much more space than past years, meaning not as many publishing booths. Unlike two years ago, epublishers were MIA (Amazon and Barnes and Noble, including Kobo or...
