Pix from BEA in NYC

A few weeks ago, I went to BookExpo America (BEA) in NYC. I had a blast. Here’s a pictorial recap:




The Midnight Ink booth







And more booth








Some interesting books








Fellow MWA member Jason Pinter signing at the MWA booth ( where I signed the following day)







ITW pal Pam Callow’s awesome light-up display for DAMAGED

Me, trying to smile, talk, and sign at the same time. Harder than it looks!




From MI 1


Terrific Midnight Ink authors Sue Ann Jaffarian and Sebastian Stuart (and me)




From MI 7


Wonderful readers lining up to get signed books





 From MI 5


Pal Sue Ann Jaffarian, down to her last few copies of MURDER IN VEIN




Special thanks to Midnight Ink and my agent for taking some of these photos!


If you’re going to the American Library Association’s annual conference this weekend in D.C., stop by the Midnight Ink booth on Saturday, June 26 between 1:30 and 2:30 when I’ll be signing copies of DIAMONDS FOR THE DEAD. On Sunday, June 27, stop by and see Joanna Campbell Slan (10 –11 am) and G.M. Malliet (1 – 2 pm) to get signed copies of their books.

I love librarians!!

Great photos, Alan! BEA was such a quick trip, it's kind of a blur, but I do remember having great fun with you and Sebastian. Have fun at the library event.

G.M. Malliet said...

Great photos. I'll try to take some Sunday at ALA. Doesn't MI have an attractive booth, though?

Lisa Bork said...

Very cool, Alan. And you had a LINE. Awesome!!

Pamela Callow said...

Alan had a BIG line in his chute! Thanks for posting the pic of my cover at BEA, really a huge thrill for me! See you in a few weeks!


Darrell James said...

Great photos, Alan. Thanks for the virtual recap. Makes me wish I'd been there.

Alan Orloff said...

Sue Ann - It was fun wasn't it? Of course, with all those books and readers, how could it not be?

Gin - The MI booth is awesome. And the MI people staffing the booth were even awesomer.

Lisa - Some people will stand in anybody's line for free books.

Pam - DAMAGED is getting some great buzz! Can't wait to see you at Thrillerfest.

Darrell - I have another dozen pictures of my fingers covering the lens. Never was much of a photographer.

Keith Raffel said...

Lookin' good, Alan. One question. Why would you post a photo of Jason Pinter and a book cover of Pam Callow? Why not the other way around?

Alan Orloff said...

Keith - Excellent point. Unfortunately, it was all I had.

Beth Groundwater said...

What a great-looking booth MI had there! And you and Sue Ann looked good, too. ;-)

Keith and Alan - We'll remedy that at Thrillerfest - I want to get some group photos for my website!
