Next week, yours truly heads off to New York City for Book Expo America (BEA) — and I couldn’t be more excited! On a personal level, it’s my first time ever visiting NYC and I’ll be staying with one of my besties from college (who is also helping me plot some quickie tourist stops in between my busy, busy days at BEA). But on a blogger level, I’m SUPER excited to finally meet the publicists, publishers and other bloggers I’ve been working with, emailing, and Tweeting with for the last year and a half.
I’ll be hitting the floor at BEA on Wednesday, May 25th and Thursday, May 26th … then heading to Book Blogger Convention on Friday, May 27th.
That’s also why I’m including this picture of myself (me, Sara!) — so you can hopefully recognize me when I’m wandering aimlessly, distracted by sparkly lights and even sparklier books. (If all else fails, look for my ridiculously vibrant, Ariel-red hair.)
I promise I’m super friendly, and I want to meet all of you guys, so if you see me — please come up and say hi! I’ll hopefully remember to pack some Novel Novice bookmarks and some of our new buttons, too — so don’t be shy to ask for swag, too. 🙂
If you want to try and meet up, you can also email me now: email@example.com and we’ll try and swap contact info, etc.
Hope to see you guys there!
And if you can’t make it, I’ll do my best to tweet from @NovelNovice while I’m there — and I’ll share my adventures once I get home!
