So remember a few posts ago when I was wishing I could go to a book fair?
The universe was listening.

I've heard from Penguin that I'll be at the Book Expo America in New York City from May 25 - 27. Woo-hoo!!

I knew this trip was a possibility, but the reality of being their is more thrilling than I can say. Last year I posted about BEA and how much I hoped to be there someday. It's hard to believe that in a single year so much has happened. I'm filled with gratitude and joy.

For anyone who is attending BEA and wants to say hi, I'm on a panel with Richelle Mead (I KNOW can you believe it!!) at the Downtown Stage in the Jarvits Center on Wednesday at 11 a.m.
On Thursday I'll be signing ARCs in the Penguin Booth at 10 a.m. That's right - signing ARCs. Squeeeee!!!!

For the rest of the conference I'll be hanging out with awesome Editor Jill, meeting up with Tenners (woot!) and hopefully getting to know lots of other awesome book people ;)

I feel like a little kid who's so excited they run in crazy circles until they fall down. I'm falling down now. *faints*


  1. Dang, there are times I wished I lived in NYC. I know you will have a fantastic time. You so deserve it.

  2. Wow, congrats! (And on a panel with Richelle Mead too! Double congrats!) I'm so happy for you! I hope you have a great time! ^_^ And this is only the beginning!

  3. That's so exciting! Hope you have fun and get up to lots of mischief with Richelle hehe. Once again wishing I was living in the states. Hopefully they'll have cool things like this happening when I'm over there November-January.

  4. That is so exciting! I am going to be at BEA on Thursday so I will make sure to try and find you because I am really looking forward to reading your book! I am sure you will have a great time!

  5. Hooray, Meaghan! I'm looking forward to meeting you :)

  6. So exciting! I am going to try my hardest to stop by!

  7. Congrats Andrea! I'm gutted I can't be there but I'm flying into Chicago from the UK on 27th May. My friend won't let me hop on over to NYC LOL.

  8. That's SO awesome!! =) I hate I have to miss it this year. Have fun and be safe!!

    Best wishes,

  9. I wish I could be there! WHen I checked the subscribtion a few months ago, they were talking about Visa for Canadians, so I gave up =/
