Tuesday: The Flight
After several cancellations and getting a flight finally to arrive at 130am NYC, BEA can finally start. Was a little rocky but I'm looking forward to a fantastic week.
Finished 1.5 books and 2 movies on the 5hr 20min flight. Guess me sleeping is a no go when I'm in the middle seat. Hoping on the way back I get a window seat.
Wednesday: Day 1
Arrived at Javits at 815am. Got our passes and grabbed some Starbucks for breakfast. Walked around the 2 floors we had access too until getting in line at 11.
From 11-1 we waited in line, talked with people around us then followed the masses into the exhibit hall.
The first 10min went in a blur. Almost everyone was headed to the Truthwitch tickets from MacMillan. Got caught in that rush but missed out by 3 people :/
After that adventure Walt and I were handed tote bags and then wondered the floor. Ended up meeting some amazing people standing in line.
We walked back to hotel around 445/5pm to unload the mass of books for Day 1.
Was originally going to a meet-up at a cafe at 7 but decided the diner a street away sounded tastier.
Now just relaxing in room. Organizing the books and awesome swag from today. Will be having 2 giveaways on the blog (not FB) so look forward to those.
So highlight was 2 signed books and being told I was White listed for Shadow Mountain publishing on Edielwiess (an e-book advanced copy site)
We get to wake up early and get going to first signing by 915am.
So far so good.
