Why would I want to participate?
Last year, we had more than 600 participants! It is a great opportunity to not only get some great information on what is hot and what is coming in the book world, but it provides you a great network of other book bloggers from all around the world. From the daily discussions to the giveaway loot and lively twitter chats, there is something available for everyone! And, you choose your level of participation!
How can I get involved?
You can get involved in a variety of ways! Let me list the ways . . .
Registration: Registration opened earlier this week, so click on over and get registered for the event! Grab one of our buttons, help us spread the word, then prepare to participate as little or as much as you would like during the week!
Commenting Volunteer: Our team likes to ensure that all participants get visitors and traffic during the week, so we have a commenting committee that is specifically assigned blogs to comment on throughout the week. If you love to meet new people and visit lots of blogs, then becoming a commenting volunteer is for you! (Sign-ups open Thursday, April 18!)
Sponsorship: If you are a book blogger attending BEA or are an author or publisher, then you can become one of our sponsors! As a sponsor, you receive special publicity through our website and social media platforms. (We also have participant-hosted giveaways throughout the week for those involved directly in Armchair BEA.)
Twitter Parties: The twitter parties are always some of our biggest events! We talk about all things literary multiple times throughout the week. Specific dates and times will be announced in the near future!
Armchair BEA is quickly approaching! Will you be joining us? Do you have any questions? Comment and let me know. You are also welcome to contact me directly at tiftalksbooks (at) gmail (dot) com or the Armchair team at armchairbea (at) gmail (dot) com.
