BookExpo America Is Underway…

…and I’ve already had one full day of attending panels, including the two discussions in which I was an active participant—both of which went really well, and I was really glad to see both rooms filled to capacity (as per the photo above, with author/relationship expert Donna Sozio in the front row). I learned a lot about marketing and “author-preneurship” from my co-panelists, and still more from the people I listened in on yesterday morning, and I’ll fill you in on as much of it as I can… next week. For now, I’m hurling myself back into the fray, as the trade show proper begins this morning.

In the meantime, here’s a photo of memoirist Ernest Borgnine, one of several Kensington authors spied partying at Ciudad last night!
