BEA 2015 Books to Watch

bea-logoHey y'all!So I'm in the thick of planning for BEA. I've gone absolutely INSANE on all my spreadsheets - yes, there are multiple. So far, I have the following:

  • a spreadsheet of schedules
  • Nicole Brinkley's spreadsheet - with my own annotations
  • a spreadsheet of signings/galley drops BY BOOK
  • a list of titles to ask about that aren't specifically featured at BEA

Primarily, I'm not just there to get books although it's definitely a nice perk. I want to hear about what'll be big in the fall and what publishers are EXCITED for, and I can't wait to meet all my favorite authors/bloggers/pub professionals that I've spent the past few years with.I do have quite a lot of books I want to try and get - or at least hear about - and I wanted to share them with y'all.

Even in compiling a short list, I've found so many titles that I'm fascinated by. There are a ton of historical fiction books coming out from HarperCollins in the fall, which I definitely have to inquire about although I don't think ARCs exist. I want to hear about where they think it'll go in the future. And the epic fantasies? Don't even get me started! What types of books are you excited for? What books are you excited for? Are you going to BEA? Let me know in the comments or tweet me your response!

An advice compilation post is coming your way this week, but in the meantime, here's where BookExpo America has popped up on Words Like Silver.
