Have you Been to BookCon?

One of my awesome readers mentioned that they couldn’t go to Book Expo America but were absolutely going to BookCon, which starts the day after BEA.  I sort of knew this beforehand but never really gave any thought to it.  But now I am.

However, I want to ask a few questions first in addition to doing some serious Googling:

1.  Have you ever been to BookCon?

2.  If so, did you consider it a worthwhile experience?

3.  If not, are you going to BookCon this year?  Why?

If any of you are going to BookCon and it sounds worthwhile I might just consider heading there on Sunday to check things out.  Please, if you have experience at BookCon or are a first-timer there like I might be, drop me a line via email, my contact page or these comments!  I’m very interested in learning more.

    Hi Carrie,
    I have made plans to go to BEA, yes. However, I may have to forgo them. I don’t know yet. I have been before, and it ROCKED! It is always a blast! I think I liked it more as a “goer” than a “presenter”. I really loved walking around and seeing all the cool books I read and the Authors, if I was lucky, was there to talk to. Lots of love, Emily

      Sorry to hear about that. I hope you can make it anyway. If you can, drop me a line and we can plan a meet up. 🙂 If not, I totally understand. Life gets in the way sometimes.
