Book Expo of America is once again coming up soon! This years dates are May 29 – June 1st. BEA is the largest floor show in North America. They will have over 1,300 exhibitors showcasing their books for the upcoming seasons. They offer breakfasts with authors, autographing, and many other events.

I had planned on going this year, but had a change of plans. I will now be attending the 2014 conference.

I plan on going for the whole duration, including the Blogger Conference. The website states:

“BEA Bloggers Conference (formerly Book Blogger Convention)

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Attend BEA Bloggers Conference to learn, be inspired, and connect with book bloggers, authors, and publishing industry professionals. You will benefit from a jam-packed day of education, extreme networking, and the passion and fun that surrounds book blogging!

Session topics include: blogging in today’s world, critical reviews, making money with your blog, creating community, and how publishers and bloggers work together.

Plus, unmatched networking with other book bloggers and close to 20 authors.”

I think this will be a great opportunity, not only for me, but for readers of Barefoot Dokusha.

4-day pass: $135

Plane ticket: $400

Place to stay: $800 max (looking to book an apartment with a couple other women and hope to get this cost down to no more than $500)
