Book Expo America 2013

I’m heading off to Book Expo America tomorrow to set up the Info Today booth and to get ready for the festivities.  In case you are attending, we will be giving out ARCs of 21 Days to Success Through Networking: The Life and Times of Gnik Rowten by Ron Sukenik and Ken Williams, copies of True Crime Online:  Shocking Stories of Scamming, Stalking, Murder, and Mayhem by Jayne A.
