What a whirlwind that is BEA! HarperCollins and City of Bones Cassie Clare parties, book signings, the exhibit hall and NYC. This is my second year attending and each year I learn something new. My suggestions for the future are to wear comfortable shoes, pick up only what you think you will read, and plan ahead. This year my focus was on mostly Children’s picture books and a few select YA/ adult titles.
My book boxes have already arrived from the Post Office at Penn Station and I will posting a video with them tomorrow. Media mail is the way to go if you want to save money shipping. But be prepared to haul your suitcase of books up many many stairs!
For now I hope you enjoy these photos I took. See the descriptions on my twitter, instagram and tumblr feeds as well as on Facebook for Heather Gardner Photography. (If you are an author, blogger or publicist and want a copy, please email me as these photos are copyrighted and may not be copied or shared without permission from the photographer Heather Zahn Gardner.)
The most amazing part? The TMI Cassie Clare party hosed by Simon & Schuster. Click here to see the full photo album.
Hope to see you next year! Thanks so much to Book Expo America for another great event.
