Call to Partay if you going to BEA or LA?

Yay - so it's official. I'm going to BEA and LA. NOt sure how long for BEA but I'm definitely going.

Can't wait.....

I love going to these places where book groupies hang out. The books, the knowledge, the energy, the people.

Mostly because I love all you guys and want to support all my blogger buddies who have books coming out at BEA and hang out with the masters of the business in LA.

Both are so worth the money! Plus BEA - can you say ARCS!

My goal is to set up some kind of happy hour at each place for bloggers or tweeters (or blogger/tweeter groupies :)

A Blogger Blowout. A Tweeter Throng (not to be confused with thong - look it up! ":)

So tell me, who is going to BEA and who is going to LA?

Leave me a comment so if/when I plan a Blogger Bash at each - you will be on the list.

PS ON a side note - my new business (marketing, book publicity) site is now up! Check it out!

I'm still on the fence about BEA this year. I usually go for the day job. Well, that's what I say, but mostly I just go because I love books!

Reverie said...

SO going to BEA! Maybe LA too!

Christine Fonseca said...

Hey - as of now, I am going to LA...WOO HOO!

Janet Johnson said...

Okay, I feel a little out of it . . . what is BEA?

And I so wish I was going to LA.

Frankie Diane Mallis said...

Maybe baby on both counts...still trying to figure things out.

Sheri Larsenッ said...

Janet, don't feel bad. I think we're wearing the same shoes.

Lisa Green said...

LA!!!

C.R. Evers said...

I would love to go to both, but just don't know if I can swing it.

Have fun!

Andrea Cremer said...

I'm at BEA! Hope to meet up with you :)

Melissa Sarno said...

Not sure about BEA yet, but I'm in the NYC area so let me know about your meetup :-)

I'm going to BEA, but not SCBWI LA (unfortunately. I really want to go back! But not this year due to honeymoon). I think it would be good to plan some sort of meet up to maybe coincide with kidlit drinks at BEA. I don't know when it is. Cheryl Klein and Betsy Bird usually organize it. But last year it was epic. (Though I think last year it followed a performance of Tiger Beat at Books of Wonder.)

Anyway, that's my suggestion. Also there's a blueboarder dinner happening on the 26th if you're interested. There's a thread about it over in the ProTalk forum.

Looking forward to seeing you again!

If only... :) One of these days I'll be able to get to one!

Natalie said...

BEA would be so fun, but I doubt I'll make it this year. It's at the top of my conference wish list though.

Solvang Sherrie said...

Unfortunately, both my Lear Jet and my private yacht have been promised in advance to Leaders of South American Countries so...it's either swim the Atlantic or stay in Greece and be with you all ONLY in spirit this year....I'll be holding a glass of spirits in at least one hand to toast you all when you have HAPPY HOUR though.....

THINKING ABOUT you all....in envy...sob...

Tracy Edward Wymer said...

I'll be at SCBWI-LA, hopefully we can meet up and chat then.

Terry Doherty said...

I'll be @ BEA. It is a festival not to be missed if one can avoid/afford it.

Gail said...

I'll be @ LA and love the blogger meeting group idea. Add me to your list please!

beth said...

I'm not sure, but I am going to try to make LA this year. Fingers crossed!!!

Elana Johnson said...

Yay! I'm still on the waffle about SCBWI, but it might still be on the horizon. You never know. I hope you have a great time! We should, like, send around the ARC's or something...

We've never met, and I've only known you exist for about 2 minutes, but I will be at BEA in New York. I am the PR manager for a publishing company and I'd love to say hi!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Totally going to LA. :D

Can't wait to meet you Shelli!

Emilee said...

I'll be in New York from the 22nd to the 30th :)
