How To ABEA 2015

What is ABEA anyway?
Book bloggers unable to attend the BEA Bloggers Conference or Book Expo America (BEA) in New York City, but would like to ‘meet’ other book bloggers and publishers to discuss books and book blogging can participate in this virtual event. Armchair BEA has been run by book bloggers on a volunteer basis since 2010, although giveaways are sponsored by authors and publishers.

Anyone can participate--vloggers are welcome too! Please register, though. :) If you have any more questions, go to our FAQ page or contact us if you can't find an answer!

Things to do!
Check out this FULL SCHEDULE of activities.

WINNERS - Giveaway Instructions
To know if you've won, we usually post the winner's names. You will not receive an email if you won. This year, we'll be updating the "2015 Winners" page found under "Giveaways."  This is for daily topic winners, Instagram winners, and Twitter winners. You must claim your prize before June 3rd. To do so, go to the "Prize Claim Form" page.
Even if you do not want a prize, fill out the form. We need to know who is claiming a prize and who isn't. You can only win two prizes, MAX. Prize claim is separate from any featured giveaways.
For daily winners, you MUST NOT link to your homepage, you must link to the POST. If you link to your homepage, you will not be eligible for a prize and your link may be deleted. To be eligible for a prize, you must also be registered!! Armchair BEA Team members are not responsible for the distribution of prizes. We will do what we can to alert the sponsors of any problems, but ultimately it is up to the sponsors to make sure prizes get to winners.
Good luck to everyone!

Website Navigation
Everything is fairly self-explanatory. Hovering over the pages sometimes opens more links, for example, participants. Look at the drop-down menus.
Under 'Agenda', you can view the full schedule and the topics. This includes Twitter parties and Instagram challenges.
'Giveaways', as seen above, hosts the 'Prize Claim Form' and the '2015 Winners' page. There is also a list of items available for giveaway.
Do you want to sign up? You can either look under 'Participants' or click the button on the sidebar!
Our social media links are right next to the FAQ page on the menu!
