We first invented our popular Buzz Books samplers back in 2012 to harness ebooks in spreading the excitement of grabbing hot galleys and making new discoveries on the convention floor to thousands of people inside the trade and beyond. (Truth be told, most of the printed galleys these days are given away in runs of a few hundred at most.) Whether you’re preparing for Book Expo and want a taste of the big books, or skipping the convention but look forward to sampling new titles from the big fall season, our two Buzz Books samplers are the perfect answer. They’re like a free BookCon, open to all twice a year.
The consumer editions are still featured prominently at iBooks and available on all major ebook platforms. Or get the “trade editions,” directly from PM as EPUB files and from NetGalley, where both the adult and YA books always top their most-downloaded lists and generate hundreds of positive reviews of your forthcoming titles. (As usual, a small quantity of the always-popular printed versions will be available at the first Editors’ Buzz Panel and in the ABA Lounge at Book Expo, thanks to our friends at Lighting Source.)
For more convention prep, remember that we have our handy day-by-day, hour-by-hour spreadsheet of all of the various events, sessions and key in-booth signings in one place available, at publun.ch/17BEsched.
