LIVE FROM BEA: From The Floor Of The Expo!

2:00 PM Tif Sweeney 14 Comments

Hi Armchair BEA participants!  

This is Sheila from Book Journey, LIVE but tired at the Expo.  I had big plans to send more things your way but time just got away from me.  I have another Publishing house interview today for you, but in the meantime thought I would share a couple things about the expo.

It's crazy awesome.  I am having a blast but running and chatting with authors, publishing houses, and of course, fellow bloggers which is so great!  Here are a few random pics.

The first pic is of Little Brown - they are so fun and had a bingo game that if you won you were able to pick a prize.  I went with a cute library kit.  YAY!


Second pic is at the Harper Collins party.  In the pic is author Dorothy Benton Frank, me, Adriana Trigiani, and Stephanie Evanovich.  This was an awesome moment and maybe my favorite pic of the expo!


Then a couple pics of the floor the night before the expo started before the crowds - and the last pic is an author signing line which I rarely do because it is soooooo long but as you can see, many people wait for signed books. :)




Thank you Sheila for sharing some awesome photos!

    1. Laurie Carlson ... We still have more LIVE coverage coming over the next few days, so be checking back. You may get to see more! (I haven't seen the material yet, so I can't say for sure what pics will be included. I just have the general idea of topic.)

  7. Wow, Sheila, how great is this?! You look fantastic and SO happy! A friend of mine is a very big fan of Adriana, so I'm sending her this link. I had held onto the hope of attending on Saturday, wanting to try to arrange meeting you at some point, but it didn't work out for me to go. Oh, well : / Glad you had such a successful week!
