Welcome to a new feature that will be running every Tuesday for the month of May….
Book Expo America is coming!
If you’re a book blogger in the US (or anywhere in the world) then you know that BEA is like candyland for us! One week, one convention center, one hundred percent book awesomeness!!! And for the second year in a row, the Bookworms are going to be in the house!
Last year, when Danny, Heather and I headed off to NY for BEA, we had almost no idea what to expect. We were excited and nervous and desperate to get some idea of what lay ahead of us. We talked with bloggy friends who had gone before, we had read all the posts we could find at other sites but still…we just didn’t know!
Of course, it’s hard to explain what to expect at such a large function when experiences vary widely. One blogger might go to BEA soley to network with publishers while another is there for the signing gallery. One blogger may have strolled through the immense network of booths, slowly savoring all there was to offer while another may have rushed like a mad woman from booth to booth to get those prized ARCs. So how can you tell what BEA will be like for you when you’ve never gone before?
Honestly, you probably can’t. But that’s not going to stop us from trying!
What is BEA2U?
So BEA2U will be a weekly feature we’ll be hosting here at Bewitched Bookworms in May. We’re planning on giving you the scoop on what our experiences were like, some information we think all bloggers can use, be it your first time or not, and then we’re going to take you with us to BEA but vlogging from NY next month!
Yup, you’ll get to see Danny, Heather, Pushy and Kristin this year, in all our sleepy, post-BEA glory as we vlog about the day, what we saw, who we met, what we learned and anything else you might want to know!
But of course there’s more…
So we know not everyone can go to BEA. It takes time and money and let’s face it, everyone’s short on both these days, right? But you know we love you, dear reader, so of course, we’r egoing to make sure we’ve got you covered!
So for the next few weeks, we’ll be bringing you more than just information. We’ll be bringing you AWESOME GIVE-AWAYS!!!
I (Danny) guess you know us by know, we love to share and we love to make people happy, so that’s why each week we’re going to be having a phenomenal Giveaway and since BEA is not just about books but also about meeting Authors. Especially for me, who lives in Germany and does not have the chance to meet all those awesome authors it’s an incredibly opportunity! I loved every author I was able to meet! WE will have some pictures for you during the next weeks…
But, now onto the epic Giveaway we have for you..
Pushy is going to attend the Launch Party on May 8th in Anderson’s Book Shop (Naperville) from Cassandra Clare’s new “Book City of Lost Souls”. Yep that’s right! This lucky chick lives in Chicago were all the aweome authors are stopping by. (*insert jealous glare from Danny here*)
We will give away
one hardcover personalized and signed from Cassandra Clare for YOU!
And.. now let us know what YOU want to know about BEA!
We’ll be covering your questions in our next posts!!
