~ In My Mailbox: BEA13 Edition ~

I can not tell you enough how amazing it was to attend BEA. It was my first time and I can not wait to go back next year. I roomed with Damaris from Good Choice Reading over in New Jersey and then every morning we would wake up super early and head over to the City.  We always tried to get there early so we could be up in the line.  The Javits Center, where BEA is held, is huge and absolutely beautiful as its all glass. I was told to bring a tote with wheels to be able to hold lots of books.  It was a good idea, but when you have to go back and forth to drop your books in it, its hard to organize them to make room.  Next year I am bring a suitcase, yes, you read that right, a suitcase.  That way you open it up and organize the books neatly and they won't get messed up.  Just a little tip for those of you that want to go next year.  So the first day, I was invited to attend the Harlequin Teen breakfast.  It was so much fun because there were so many authors there that I had only spoke with on Twitter and facebook and to see them in person was such an amazing feeling.  Thank you so much Harlequin for everything!  After breakfast, we RAN to the booths where the books were being dropped.  OMG it was crazy!  I was so nervous and still felt weird walking up to a stack of books at tall as me and just taking one and putting it in my totes, which by the way, were given out EVERYWHERE. Another tip, wear comfy shoes because there is A LOT of walking, running and standing around.  My feet and arms were so sore that night after carrying all of the books lol, but well worth it. 

My favorite things of BEA was actually getting to meeting the publishers and putting a face on the person who I had been emailing with all this time.  Also, meeting people that have the same interests as me and chit chatting with them while I waited in line to meet an author and get my books signed.

Unfortunately, My camera broke and I wasnt able to post any pictures, believe me, I am heartbroken.  But next year, I will make sure I post my pictures after every night just to be sure!.   

I can not wait to go again next year!
