So, BEA (Book Expo America) is over and, all in all, it was a really good show. Nice weather (when we could get outside!), nice people and great books... not just ours.
We had several of our authors autograph their books and there were lines for all of them. Nice!
Saw lots of old friends from publishing days gone by and met new friends, too.
And, luckily, we skirted disaster (literally) when on, set-up day, an entire wall of the very large booth (about 30 feet) fell over. Our founders, Leonard Stern and Larry Sloan, were standing right there and managed to get out of the way just in time. Could've been really ugly. The chair Leonard had been sitting in moments before was rather mangled. Thank you to the book gods for intervening.
Now, what you've all been waiting for...
