STAR* AUTHORS HEAD FOR NYC
Two California authors are planning to join forces with the "big-time players" in New York City for Book Expo America
Robin Westmiller, author of Blood Tastes Lousy With Scotch, and Carolyn Howard-Johnson, author of Frugal Book Promoter,
will both travel from their homes in CA to New York City for the annual event, which will occur on June 1-3, 2007, at the
Jacob Javits Convention Center.
While BEA is not known for a place to make a lot of book sales, it is a great place to network with fellow authors, meet
influential people in the book publishing industry and get your book into the hands of people who can help make it a success.
This year's keynote speaker will be Dr. Alan Greenspan, who will kick off the events of the weekend on Fri., June 1,
at 11 a.m.
HOW TO HAVE
A HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY
One sure-fire way is to get a copy of Janet Elaine Smith's Patrick and Grace Mysteries. Start with In St.
Patrick's Custody, Book No. 1, to meet the senior sleuths who are becoming America's No. 1 favorite couple. One reviewer said,
"Patrick and Grace get into more trouble than a couple of two-year olds, but they have more fun than a barrel of monkeys getting
out of it."
Available on Amazon.com, bn.com, at the Star* Bookstore (http://starpublish.com
), many other online bookstores or at your favorite neighborhood bookseller.
