BEA 2013: Pre-Event Press

Book Expo America 2013 approaches Thursday and for me it begins tomorrow with my first BEA Bloggers.

Over the last few years I’ve written regular prepping for BEA articles, pre-press of exciting titles being promoted, all that jazz. Each year before the show begins I want to have at least ONE article prior to the show that expels my excitement, lets fellow attendees, new and old know what to expect if they haven’t done the same amount of research I’ve done or something.

Each year this gets harder and harder. For the last couple weeks I’ve been collecting many links. Links of other folks prep articles, official websites of books that catch my eye, publishers schedules, events and more. I feel for this year it might be best for me to just share those actual links and let people pour through it as BEA 2013 looks to be pretty big and crazy especially with a Saturday packed to the gills of Neil Gaiman, Robbie Robertson and Jim Gaffigan. I guess for those Power Readers though they wanted to go ALL OUT!

  • I hope you were able to pick up the ARCs that you wanted! I did get my hands on a copy of the Facades. Sounds like a good read.
