AEI CLIENT LISA CERASOLI REPORTS ON HER FIRST BOOK EXPO EXPERIENCE


MY EXPERIENCE AT BEA

Lights....Action.....Book Expo 2009! Loved every minute of it!
Four days in New York City filled with two of my favorite things--people and books--who could ask for anything more?
You know you're in the right career when you spend day after day meeting & greeting, movin', groovin' & networking (meanwhile you forget to eat and your feet feel like they've spent a few rounds in a boxing ring....and lost), and all you feel is HAPPY at days' end.

I've been asking myself how I've been graced with such a stimulating career that not only allows me to express myself fully (and I do mean FULLY), but also enables me to meet such fine, diverse, intelligent people (insert all of you), and take me to NYC, too--and I just keep thinking, damn, I must be the luckiest chick alive!!
I mean, of course, now I want to move to New York City. And I have book ideas bursting from every cell of my being, and I'm trying to figure out how to talk a small town family of five into moving to the Big Apple and letting me bury myself in work for the next fifteen years, but that's for another time.

Until then, thank you so much for this amazing opportunity. Being at Book Expo America 2009 was like going to Paris in the Spring with my top ten books, an endless supply of Pino Noir, and the Lover(s) of my choice--it was simply exhilarating!!

Peace out--Lisa Cerasoli
