It’s BEA time! Book Expo America is the largest US publishing extravaganza. Last year, a handful of crazy indies went in on a booth and had a great time at the Expo. So we’re back and better than ever. If you’re around the Javitz Center and you want to stop by and say hello, our booth is DZ1761. That’s in the Digital Discovery Zone, where all the cool players are.
I’m also involved in a few talks and events around New York this week. On Tuesday, I’ll be at Entwine to give a reading and do a meet-and-greet. Entwine is on 765 Washington Street in the West Village. The shindig starts around 7pm, but I’ll be there early if you want to raise a glass and chat. Please Tweet/FB about this event if you can!
On Wednesday, I’ll be moderating a panel with Bella Andre and Barbara Freethy at the Digital Minds conference. The panel is at 10:50 that morning.
On Thursday, I’ll be at the Author Hub in the Javitz Center at 10am for the ribbon cutting. And between there and our booth the rest of the day. At 2:30 I’ll be signing copies of SAND at table 18 of the author signing area.
Friday, I’ll be around the booth.
On Saturday, I’m on a panel at UPupU at 10am on whether to self-publish or traditionally publish. Should be a subdued panel. Otherwise, this is the day for BookCon, so I’ll be at the booth (DZ1761). Come say hello!

Eeeek, Can’t wait! Should be a blast!
Sounds like an incredibly busy and interesting week for you. Really wish I could skim over the pond and attend some of it!
Have fun! I might see you there next year :D
Sounds like a very full schedule, Hugh. Don’t wear yourself out and be sure to get your daily allotment of healthy eats and sleep.
Looking forward to stopping by the booth!
Hugh I have a big question. I live in New York and am always excited by events like BEA and Thrillerfest in July, yet, since I am self published and have been fortunate to find a readership with ebooks (thank you Amazon UK Readers!!!) I am never sure what the purpose would be for an independent to attend. (Plus there is a degree of expense even for a resident.) I remember you shared a booth last year as well. Apart from meeting readers on Saturday, do these events bear any fruit for authors outside of the Big Houses?
I’m going to BookCon and I’d like to attend this self-publishing panel at UPupU at 10am. But I can’t seem to find any such panel on their website. What room is it in?
I just saw that UPubU is a trade only event not open to BookCon attendees. I’ll just catch you at your booth then. Look forward to meeting you! :)
