If you aren’t familiar with this convention, it’s a gathering of publishers and related industries and professionals from around the world and include printers, librarians, agents, distributors, authors etc. There was a time when it was just a mass of free signed copies of new books and lots of other giveaways, but that has been dropping off the last few years. Now I’d say it’s much more business to business in its orientation. Today I’m going to scout around and check out the graphic novel area in between meetings.
In other news, Gallery (the new name of the imprint at S&S that publishes the hard cover editions) have settled on the teaser chapter from Ashes of a Black Frost to place in the mm of The Light of Burning Shadows. I was trading emails with my editor and we’ve got it nailed down…I think.
