Come say hello at #BEA13

Lots going on with APE! This week Guy Kawasaki and Shawn Welch (and me hooray!) will both be in New York City for Book Expo America and uPubU from May 30 through June 1st.

From BEA “Noted author and speaker Guy Kawasaki will be the Keynote Luncheon Speaker at uPublishU (uPubU) which will take place on Saturday, June 1, 2013 at BookExpo America (BEA) at the Javits Center in New York City. uPubU, which is targeted to authors who have self-published but want more insight and direction on how to get books discovered, is a pivotal part of BEA’s newly expanded conference programming for the self-published market. The full day conference program was widely attended in 2012 and convention officials are expecting greater success this year with the addition of many leading speakers and panelists. Mr. Kawasaki is the author of the definitive book APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur – How to Publish a Book. Robert Gottlieb is the founder and CEO of the Trident Media Group and has worked with hundreds of authors providing guidance on how to get to the top of the bestseller lists. Other notable authors participating in the event include #1 New York Times Bestselling author Barbara Freethy, as well as bestselling authors Bella Andre, Maria Murnane, among others.”

Guy will have several talks and the APE team with be with the team (Kelsye and Abigail with mascot Chloe) at their booth. What is “ powers the self-publishing movement by connecting writers directly with the vendors and freelancers they need to get their books to market, completely by-passing the broken, old-school publishing process.”
