OMG YOU GUYS. Next week I will be at BEA (Book Expo of America) in which I will get to meet authors, hang out with my blogger friends, chat with publishing professionals and find out what books I should be DAMN excited about this Fall/Winter!! I’m super excited to be able to go again (my 3rd year though last year I had to leave early because of the wedding & no time off left).
If you are going to be at BEA leave me a comment telling me so and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE say hi if you see me. I will probably tackle hug you…you’ve been warned. But seriously in past BEAs I’ll always talk to people later and they’ll say “I saw you but I was too scared to say hi” to which I’m like NOW I’M SAD because I want to meeeeet you! So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE say hi to me if you see me. We can even have a code phrase if you see me or aren’t sure it’s me — something like “I want to roll around in piles of books and eat cupcakes all day”. Then BOOM ice is broken.
In order to ensure that you recognize me (and because apparently people say I am animated and have lots of faces) I created a handy guide of my many faces that you might see in the wild at BEA. Because I REALLY really want to meet you, friend!!
(All faces have been 100% husband approved. He says they are pretty spot on for each category and he has seen many of these faces in different situations.)
Are you going to BEA!?? Is this your first time? I’m happy to answer any questions you might have in the comments! And please SAY HI IF YOU SEE ME….or tweet me to tell me you think you see me!!
