-When I get back from my honeymoon, I’ll be giving away a lot of books I received at BEA. Some giveaways will be on here and some will be on twitter-only.
-I keep trying to find time to write my BEA recap but with my wedding on Saturday, I haven’t had any. I plan to write up something on the honeymoon plane ride (since i have 14 hours to kill…though I have lots of books to read to kill it!) and posting when I get to Hawaii. For now I will leave you with a few brief thoughts:
1) BEA is AWESOME and if you can swing it, I highly recommend it
2) It took about 5 days for my feet/legs/shoulders to recover. I felt like I ran a marathon.
3) Have a plan and a schedule. Actually agent Suzie Townsend has a great post with advice on How To Swag at BEA.
4) I so wanted to make the blueboarder dinner but after swagging all day Wednesday, I just couldn’t rally. I did make it out to kidlit drinks later that night. I suggest next year the blueboarder dinner is BEFORE the exhibits start.
Here is a video Jen Hayley made about BEA in which I star! (Okay, she stars, but hey, I’m a writer. I exaggerate.)
Here is an incomplete list of the books I received (since I’m doing this from memory as I am not in the same place as my books):
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride
etc etc etc. That’s enough for now since I have to get ready to do wedding stuff.
Anyway, I wanted to leave you with one other thing before I go into crazy-wedding mode. Hopefully I’ll post some wedding photos either Sunday or Tuesday depending on time, but if you friend me on Facebook, I’m sure I’ll be tagged in a million photos.
I worked on a baby photo slide show yesterday for the wedding and found proof that I have been reading since before I even knew how. Here’s the proof:
Wasn’t I a cute little monster?
