BEA – Book Expo America 2008 in Los Angeles
Just spent the day at the Book Expo America show (BEA). It’s big, covers two halls at the Los Angeles Convention Center. I’m glad I went. I ran into lots of interesting people and learned a lot about using this type of show to promote books.
I spoke with several publishers and distributors about a book I’ve written, learned that many distributors also publish. The ones I spoke to, do expect the author to do their own public relations in the way of getting noticed etc. They also don’t ask for a total exclusive agreement either.
This show happens each year, next year 2009 it will be in New York. I know I’ll be there the whole three days…will you?
Remember, keep doing something everyday for your book and promotion.
