Book Expo is right around the corner and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Every year I look forward to attending this event because it feels like coming home. It’s a conference where all us book people gather to check out the upcoming fall books and swoon over authors. It’s an event where I can catch up with old friends and peers in the industry and also meet fabulous new people. It’s a total love fest for me because it combines my love for community and my love of publishing.
This year, I am grateful to be hosting three events at BEA:
- In Booth Book Signing on Thursday, 6/1 from 10:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. at Booth 2479 I’ll be signing copies of my book, Online Marketing for Busy Authors, so come on down. I’d love to see you and sign a copy for you.
- New Online Tools That Make Powerful Collaboration Possible on Thursday, 6/1 at 11:00 a.m. in room 1E16 Collaboration is not just a buzz word, it is the future of work. In this practical session we will review tools that will reduce email overload, increase productivity, keep you organized and make you a better communicator.
- The Three Step Formula for Building a Successful Author Platform on Friday, 6/2 at 10:00 a.m. on the Author Market Stage Every author’s online platform is his or her biggest asset, and creating one is vitally important for your long-term success. You will learn through examples and case studies how to connect all the elements of online marketing (website, mailing list, blogging, social media, advertising and publicity) into a cohesive, successful and sustainable author platform.
If you are coming to BEA, please stop by and say hello. And if you can’t make it to Book Expo, I’m speaking at more events this year. I hope to see you soon.
