California, Here I Come…

I’m packing my bags and heading out to BookExpo America, so no more posts from me until at least Thursday—and if you’re coming to the show, I hope you’ll consider dropping in on the panels in which I’ll be taking part, “Strategies for New Publicity Opportunities in an Expanding Media Universe” and “”The Author-preneur: Balancing Authorship and the New Business of Brand-building.” But even if we don’t see each other there, you might catch me in the audience at several other panels between Thursday and Saturday. I’m especially looking forward to learning about social networking and online communities Friday afternoon, and international literature in translation on Saturday.

Plus, of course, the cocktail parties.

(And while I’m making my way out to Los Angeles tomorrow, Writer’s Digest has an all-day conference promising “an exclusive insider’s perspective on the business, as well as the art of authorship,” with special guest Jacquelyn Mitchard.)
