As many of you who were there (or who followed along on Twitter) know, today's Book Blogger Panel at BEA was a resounding success. Many issues, from how to find the right blog, how to pitch a blogger and the nitty gritty like, so, what is a blog tour? were discussed. Thank you so much to the audience for your great questions. It was such a lively exchange! You can read one report of the panel from Publishers Weekly here.
I cannot thank Julie, Stephanie, Amy, Candace, Dawn and Natasha enough for coming on board and sharing their thoughts and their time with everyone in the room. They were mobbed at the end, it was so terrific! For those of you who weren't able to score a tote bag with the accompanying cheat sheet, as promised, I'm posting the contact info and blogger directories that were on that sheet here.
As soon as we have the recording of the panel sorted out, I'll post it so those who missed it can listen in. A big thank you to Michael for being our AV guy. And remember, there is still one more day at BEA, so there's time to meet more book bloggers at Firebrand's booth #4077 on Sunday!
