Day one started with us picking up our badges, wondering around and bumping into some friends for some fun chats and planning. The show room floor didn’t open that day. So, we planned for the next two days and then headed out to explore NY.
Days 2 & 3 were exhausting, but extremely fun. We basically stuck together a lot for in booth signings and arc drops. It’s better if you go in groups for drops going on while waiting in line. And you just never know who you are going to meet wondering around.
During the entire event I’ve had two bad experiences. One with Penguin and their horrible crowd control. Getting answers out of them was like getting answers out of a non-verbal dog. The other was how poorly I was treated by a small publishing house. I sent them a very lengthy wordy email yesterday about the treatment of not only me, but countless others.
In the end, Book Expo was another amazing year and I came away with a huge haul!!
Not sure if I want to risk getting sick again!! But the books might draw me back in!!!
