BookExpoAmerica - I'd Love to be There

This is a photo of my one and only BookExpo Show (in Chicago, 1999--10 years ago, Wow!)...I was thrilled when my publisher boss, Bettie Tucker, of Rainbow's End Christian Publishing, decided to go and asked me to participate! For a book lover, it is truly one of the highlights of my life--being surrounded by books, seeking and meeting people who are in the book publishing business and even having a chance to meet and get an autograph from TV star and author of Farewell to the Mockingbirds, James McEachin!

I came home from the trip with a trunk-load of books, posters, pens, badges and lots of other goodies, most of which I still have!

We had a very nice display and there I met Adolfo Caso, publisher of Branden Books, who has been my friend for many years!

If you are an author or small publisher, there are ways to join with others in attending this show. Believe me, if you can make it, you won't regret being there!

I just started following the Expo on Twitter @BookExpoAmerica. You can also check out their site by clicking on the title of this article!
