Postcards from the Edge ... of BEA #1

I hope this post finds you well and in great spirits!

I am reporting in from BookExpo America in New York City with great enthusiasm as we gear up for what promises to be a great show. For those unfamiliar with BookExpo America, it is the largest and most important trade show in the U.S. publishing industry. I will be speaking at the PMA University Conference, exhibiting during the trade show, and signing copies of all my Literary Entrepreneur Series titles in the Autographing Area and in our Booth #3046. The full details are noted at and

Yesterday I presented one of two courses during the Pre-BEA PMA University Conference. I was joined by the esteemed and accomplished publishing lawyer, Lloyd Jassin, to cover "The Players, The Process, The Deal" -- all about the industry professionals involved in rights sales and acquisitions and about the process itself.

The next presentation, titled "Protect Your Copyright," is on Thursday afternoon. I will be joined by two other nationally recognized and accomplished publishing lawyers, Jonathan Kirsch and Lloyd Rich. The combined wealth of experience is invaluable so if you're attending PMA U, be sure to get there early and get a seat!

Finally … a personal note of reflection and inspiration

It seems like 2007 is flying by at a dizzying pace, although May has, without a doubt, been the LONGEST month for me thus far -- and not always in a good way. Thankfully life has taught me that we have a choice everyday. We can face the morning with trepidation and doubt or with eager anticipation of the new opportunities and lessons the day may bring. I hope you'll join me in choosing the latter - today and always!

Write on,
