It's Book Expo America Week!

As a book-not-on-the-shelf-yet author, events such as these are very tempting but the return on going is something I have not been able to quantify.  That said, as luck would have it, I had to be in NYC for a baby shower this past weekend and it seemed like a no-brainer to stay for a few extra days. So, today I'm headed for the School Library Journal Day of Dialog and the third annual Teen Author Carnival.  Then I'll spend tomorrow fangirling authors at the BEA Exhibit Hall.

Even if you can't be in NYC this week, you can follow along with all the fun

On Twitter: @BookExpoAmerica; @ArmchairBEA

Online: http://www.armchairbea.com/ (awesome!)

And extra-special for book bloggers:  http://bookbloggerconvention.com/

So, for the next two days I'll be foisting my bookmarks upon people, meeting up with my fellow bookanistas, my editor, and other writer friends, and taking LOTS of notes.  As soon as I get back, I'll post a full report on the ups and downs of going to BEA as a soon-to-be-published author.
