It’s less than a month away: the event book bloggers, authors, & publishers all look forward to! Book Expo America!
One of the most important things about BEA is not the free galleys but the networking! I’ve made some great friendships & working relationships with people I met at BEA. Last year, I started doing things a bit different, I planned my meetings with publicists/publishers before scheduling the other activities (author signings, etc.) Hopefully this way I can maximize the amount of time I have available.
In the four years I’ve been blogging, I’ve discovered these meetings, this individual time with publicists, is invaluable. I’ve been able to meet people I’ve only conversed with via email, nurtured relationships formed at previous conferences, and really formulated a “strategic plan” as far as my blog goes.
If you plan on attending BEA Blogger Con on Monday June 4th, I’ll be on a panel entitled Demystifying the Book Blogger & Publisher Relationship. Feel free to come up to me and say hello. I’m nice, I promise!
I’ll be in NY for BEA June 3-8th. Will you be there? Want to meet up? Either fill out the form below or email me at jennsbookshelfATgmailDOTcom!
