Last week we were lucky enough to have been invited by our publisher, Sleeping Bear Press, to participate in one the publishing industry’s biggest celebrations of the year; Book Expo America. The Javits Center in New York was teaming with extraordinarily talented people all there for a single purpose – the exchange of ideas. To that end; writers, agents, editors, publishers, marketing and publicity specialists, sales reps, booksellers, librarians, educators, readers and reviewers came together to pool their resources to promote the written word.
While it may be a romantic notion to believe that one lonely soul with a pencil and paper and a great idea can change the world; the truth is much more engaging. Every book that ever found its way into your hands and into your heart has been a collaborative effort. At BEA we recognize the dedication and expertise required in every step of the process. So cheers to an industry that informs, educates, and entertains us all!
