I’m back from Book Expo America, and yes, I left NYC in a MegaBus weighed down with books and swag (mostly books). The experience was great and I will happily take on the Javits Center again next year.
My favorite quote from the show was said during the Editor Buzz session when referring to a forthcoming novel: “It’s not beastiality, it’s love.” I heard someone behind me chuckle and say, “Well, there’s your sound byte.”
But the highlight for me was the SheWrites Knowledge Faire. It was a speed-dating format that provided a chance for newbies like me to meet with established agents, editors and other folks in the industry.
