For the third consecutive year, HWA had a visible presence at BookExpo America – the country’s largest gathering of publishing professionals. At this year’s event, which took place May 25th through the 27th at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City, the HWA debuted its new trade show display in a highly-visible, premier location beside our friends at the Mystery Writers of America. Among the 500 authors featured throughout the event were several HWA members – including Jonathan Maberry, Alexandra Sokoloff, Ellen Datlow, Roger Ma, Jameson Currier, Gary Frank, Kelly Jameson, Martel Sardina, and Connie Corcoran-Wilson – who all enjoyed long lines of librarians, retailers, educators, and fans and gave away hundreds of books. And, for the first time ever, three of our authors scored coveted spots on the main autographing floor where celebrated authors like William Peter Blatty, R.L. Stine, and Justin Cronin also signed this year!
Here’s a taste of this year’s BEA experience:
