Book Expo America was a fantastic event. The Ellora's Cave Booth rocked the entire conference. Each day, different authors signed: Cindy Lee, Cris Anson, Cherise DeLand, Jez Marrow, Velvet, Lynne Silver, Koko Brown, Kate Poole, Desiree Holt and (me) Tara Nina. It was wonderful meeting such talented authors and hearing their insights on the publishing world not to mention what they have in the works for the future. Yummy stuff coming our way.
I even was interviewed alongside Desiree Holt and Cherise DeLand. Desiree was so kind. I was extremely nervous so she held my hand and it made a world of difference for my nerves.
Our Booth had an even Sexier attraction than the Extremely hot authors of Ellora's Cave. Several of the Cavemen attended as well and drew crowds of people while they signed the EC calender.
The Book Obsessed Chicks leader herself gave me a hug and took advantage of the photo op.
There were so many great and talented people at this event. Jim Carey, Kareem Abdul Jabar, Paula Dean and just too many to name. I did win Mother of the Year with my daughter by getting books signed by two of her favorite authors, Cassandra Claire & Heather Graham. I should have kept them as a bargaining chip to get her room cleaned but alas I failed. I was just too excited to give them to her :)
I look forward to next year!
