RECAP: Book Expo America
BookExpo America is one of the largest publishing trade events in the world, and every year authors, publishers, bloggers and fans converge on New York to brave the crowds and come together over what they all love best: books. We knew we were going to have a ball this year, but we had no idea it was going to be THIS much fun!
For those of you who've never been to BEA, it's in a MASSIVE conference hall, with booths for each publisher set up in rows. The Disney booth was our command center, not least because we got to keep coming back to see our book as a big standee. Yes, we are totally posing with it like massive geeks. Because that's what we are. (Meg may or may not have smuggled that thing home on the plane with her.)
The most fun we had was at our signing for THESE BROKEN STARS on Thursday. We were signing at the same time as some truly amazing authors, which meant that we were completely caught off-guardâ€”in the best way possibleâ€”by the length of our line. (Check it out on the right here!) We heard that people were already lining up for it 45 minutes ahead of time, which absolutely blew us away. Thank you, guys!
This was the first time we've ever gotten to sign our book together, so it was a truly unforgettable experience for us both. We're so grateful to the Disney team for bringing us to BEA, and continually amazed by the awesome fans and supporters who keep showing how excited they are for THESE BROKEN STARS. You guys ROCK, and we're so lucky to have you!
