So I just read this article by Publisher’s Weekly that did a short review of BookCon. In it there were a couple of interviews with attendees who felt displeased with the lack of free stuff – both ARCs and swag – available for them to get from publishers. And all I could think was, really? That’s what’s important to you? Getting as many free books and stuff as possible? Continue reading “ARC Entitlement | A Discourse”
Sorry I’ve not been very active on here lately (glances at personal goals for the year guiltily), but I spent the last couple of months working on shows and prepping for BookCon.

Which is what I am going to talk about today! Continue reading “BookCon 2018 | Saturday Recap”
Okay, now that I’ve officially gotten my autograph tickets for BookCon, I am too excited and need to talk about it here.
I went last year to BookCon and it was amazing! (If you’re super bored and want to read an extremely lengthy recap of it, click here). I actually have less MUST-DO’s on my list this year, so I’m hoping to use the extra time going around the show floor and trying for prizes I didn’t get to last year because of the extra long lines.
