BookExpo America Pink Saturday

I saved a few of my BookExpo America (BEA) experiences for Pink Saturday. There were some very fun-in-pink good times at  BEA and I knew they would be perfect for a post.

I didn't expect to make new friends at BEA, but I'm happy to say I met two of nicest women who publish at Pink Pig Press. I was drawn to their pretty-in-pink booth and especially liked their two great books about cats. Liz and Vell were very gracious and I will be doing a giveaway later in the summer for one of their titles.

Of course I was drawn to this pretty in pink booth.

There were hundreds of exhibitors, but not very many with pink decor. I found a perfect Pink Saturday sight at the American Girl booth. 

My attention was captured by the bright pink lettering on the cover of "Let's Get Lost." I got to chat with the author, Adi Alsaid, and look forward to reading his book, which will be published in July. 

And a final goodbye to BEA. I'm now sorting out the business cards I collected, making a list of email I want to write and getting down to the real business, which is reading. I'm enjoying "The Hollow Girl" a lot. I do love my mysteries. There are still some Grumpy Cat post cards available and I'll be in touch with those of you who already let me know you wanted them.  

Now I join Dora in waving a fond farewell to a wonderful week of books, more books and new friends. 

As always, thanks for visiting and take good care. Happy week and happy reading.

I'm tickled to see the Pink Pig booth... and great hats!
Uh-huh, I already checked out their website, and have to say 'yea!' for the little guy/gal!

Exhausting, no doubt ... but I'm sure you're more than gratified at a weekend well-lived!
Wish I was there! :)


My granddaughter loves anything American Girl. The booths all look lovely. I wore pink today. It's such a pretty color.

What could be better than meeting new friends and lots of books to entertain you this summer.

That book expo looks like a terrific time and also a bit overwhelming. Thanks for commenting on the Meriam Ibraham post today. She needs our prayers.

Dear Carol, thanks for the information on the BEA. I'm wondering about whether the Pink Pig Press accepts submissions. I used the link and went to the press's blog but found nothing there about submissions. I have two manuscripts for children books about cats that I thought they might find some interest in.
