BookExpo America Embraces Self Publishing

Untitled

BookExpo America, the country’s largest publishing industry conference, is stepping up its commitment to self-published authors this May 11-13 at the McCormick West Convention Center in Chicago.

For the last five or six years, BEA held uPublishU, their awesome indie-author themed conference, as a sister event the day after the main BEA conference ended.

This year in Chicago, BEA is integrating uPublishU programs and exhibitors directly into the main floor of the conference. Now that uPublishU is fully integrated, attending authors can enjoy the full range of main conference’s sessions and networking opportunities as part of their conference registration.

Smashwords will attend BEA this year as an exhibitor in the uPublishU pavilion. I’ll be there with our marketing director Jim Azevedo.

I’ll also present three conference sessions, two of which will be short talks from the uPublishU stage and one of which will be part of the general conference. If you’re attending, please stop by and say hello!
