An Author Appreciating Bloggers on Wed. at BEA

I had the good fortune to meet M.L. Malcolm at BEA last year. She was a wonderful person to chat with and she had a very distinctive style of dress - you'll never see her without a gorgeous hat.  She'll be at BEA again this year so keep your eyes out for her.

Anyway, I received an email from Ms. Malcolm about something she's doing at BEA on Wednesday and I'm excited to share it with all of you, especially since it involves appreciating bloggers!

Here's what she wrote:

I’ll be signing “Heart of Deception,” Wednesday, May 25th, from 3:00 to 3:30 at Table Six in the main autographing area. I’ll also be at the Book Bloggers Convention cocktail reception on Thursday, from 3:00pm – 5:00 pm, in Javits Center, Hall E – Room 1E12, and at the “Speed Dating” event at BBC on Friday.*  As a thank you for all the support I’ve received from readers in the Blogsphere this year, I’d like to treat the first 25 Book Bloggers who come by my signing on Wednesday to a glass of wine at the BBC reception.  All they have to do is come by Table 6 at 3:00 on Wednesday, pick up a signed copy of “Heart of Deception,” give me a card with the name of their blog on it, and I’ll give them a ticket for a free libation when they come to the reception on Thursday.
What a wonderful idea, no?! You'll certainly find me in line to get HEART OF DECEPTION on Wednesday, but don't worry, I'll leave the drink tickets for someone else to claim - maybe you'll be one of the lucky 25!

*I'm sad that I'll miss the author speed dating session on Friday (I think it would be a lot of fun!) but I'll be moderating the "Grey Areas of Blogging" panel at exactly the same time.

I won't be arriving until Thursday, but I'm looking forward to meeting everyone at the cocktail party!

I am putting Ms. Malcom's book signing on my schedule, and not just for the drink, even though it is a lovely gesture! Looking forward to meeting her!

Thank you, Heather, for helping to spread the word. I am so looking forward to meeting in person some of the wonderful Book Bloggers that have been so supportive of my work this past year. I am always impressed (and quite frankly, AMAZED) at how many books y'all read, and how articulate you are in expressing your opinions. Please come introduce yourselves and have a glass of wine (or beverage of your choice) on me!

That sounds like a neat idea for all you lucky ducks in NYC! :)
