This week only, Brain to Books Cyber Convention is the featured subject at www.angelabchrysler.com. The Wandering Wench returns on 11 April 2016.
This year marks our second annual Brain to Books cyber convention and book expo. Three things you need to know before I begin. 1. This event is online so everyone can attend. 2. This event is free. You only need an internet connection. 3. Everyone—especially book lovers and readers—are invited.
We have a lot going on and I hope to summarize as much as I can for you without info dumping on you. This Friday 300 authors from around the world have gathered on Facebook, Goodreads, Google+, and YouTube to bring readers and bibliophiles a three day tour de force. Joe Compton leads the way with 72-hour around-the-clock live coverage.
We have cover wars, games, giveaways, prizes, book readings, new releases. This is the only online cyber convention and book expo anywhere.
So where do you begin and where should you start? This is the road map to this convention! If you get lost, just come back here and I’ll help you out.
First. You are here: the event coordinator’s website, which doubles as headquarters (AKA my not-so-secret secret layer) this weekend. The primary location I recommend you check out is the FAIRGROUNDS located on Goodreads. This is where the 300 authors have set up tables, booths, and displays for your to virtually walk the grounds and check out what is available. It’s so big that CC Rogers has built this insanely stunning link map, which sorts everything by genre. Please note the tabs at the top of her page where you can also check out “Events” and “Giveaways.” Very impressive.
We have four Facebook events happening this weekend. Here is my “events” page so you can follow whatever you wish at your leisure. Subscribe to receive future Brain to Books and author events as they arise. Check out Matthew William Harrill’s HELLDAT HEAD TO HEAD TAKEOVER or THE FACEBOOK CYBER CONVENTION TAKEOVER AND BOOK EXPO. We also have Tabitha Barret’s READER’S FANTASY LAND, which features Paranormal, Fantasy, and Romance authors April 9 and 10.
Our final event on Facebook is the COVER WARS where you can check out winners or view times for the next round.
And speaking of Cover Wars, you can VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE cover here! My own booth is located here where I have accumulated a list of all my events. For those of you who are following me on tour through the Convention all weekend, there is the place to go.
