I attended Book Expo America a couple of weeks back at the Javits Center in New York City. For those of you unfamiliar with BEA, it is the most amazing place in America for book lovers to be! Authors, editors, agents, publishers, librarians, bloggers, readers—you name it, they come! Publishers showcase their newest titles, give away tons of ARCs, and authors sign their books throughout the conference.


My highlights from BEA:

*When I first arrived, a girl walked past me and yelled out, “I read your book! I read Triangles!” It made me feel like a celebrity! It’s an awesome feeling that I hope every writer gets to experience one day.

*Hanging out at the Spencer Hill Press table with the amazing people of SHP and their authors.


*Meeting some new friends in person that I’d only met online.

*Having a delicious dinner at Five Napkin Burger with a fellow book lover and new friend as a storm swept through the area, followed by an evening of chatting at the hotel in the bar area.

*Of course, collecting upwards of 75 ARCs from some familiar and some new authors! Every year at BEA I find a few new authors to love, which is my favorite part of BEA.


Were you at BEA? What was your best moment?
