Welcome to the newest feature on Andi’s ABCs, Book a Date, a post about something you are excited for that is releasing in the future. It can be a TV show, a movie (in the theater or out on DVD), a clothing line, a video game, a graphic novel, and of course a book. Actually it can be anything you want. If you would like more information or would like to sign-up you can click HERE.
Today we have me doing the first Book a Date post to get us going.
What date am I booking? June 2nd, the day I head to NYC with Gail for the weekend.
When BEA changed their prices and there guidelines for press pass I knew I would not be able to go this year. I was super sad because I love going to BEA. Some of you will be surprised to know that I don’t love going for the books (which are a nice perk), but I do love going and seeing people I talk to on a daily basis but never get to see. BEA two years (Part 1, Part 2) ago was one of the best times. I got to hang out with so many people and see so many friends I was super sad that I wasn’t going this time around. But then I got a text message from Gail asking if I want to go to NYC the weekend after BEA? I immediately wanted to say no because of cost, but once that was worked out I was 100% on board. So now there is the chance I will get to see some of my people I wouldn’t get to see (the ones that are at least there for the weekend anyway) and maybe attend BookCon (I know I said never again, but I’m tempted because of the change they made and it only being $35). Other than that it will just be a fun weekend in the city that I have loved to visit for a long time.
So if you are going to be around that weekend, tell me and maybe we can hang out.
I’ve Booked a Date. Now it’s your turn. Sign-up HERE.
As you have heard last week was the last “official” week for my weekly feature, The ABCs. Since then I have been trying to think of something that will be fun and can replace it. Yesterday on Twitter I mentioned an idea I had for a feature called “What I Love About…”. From that idea a new idea was born and I actually like this one a little better. Welcome to the introduction for Book a Date!
What is Book a Date?
Book a Date will be a weekly feature where you can sign up and post about something you are excited for that is releasing in the future. It can be a TV show, a movie (in the theater or out on DVD), a clothing line, a video game, a graphic novel, and of course a book. Actually it can be anything you want. You can sign up and talk about a vacation you took and think other people should plan. It is kind of an anything goes type of post and a way for you to get things you are excited for on other people’s radar.
Do I have to be a blogger?
No. Anyone is welcome to sign up. You can be an author, a publicists, a reader, a fashion lover, a comic nerd… Everyone is welcome to sign-up and take part in Book a Date.
What will I have to do?
Basically it will work similar to The ABCs. You will sign-up and I will email you your post date. I usually send out emails a week in advance but I will try to be better about it for this post and give you two weeks. Once you get your email from me you will write your post (preferably in HTML to make my life easier) and send it back by your given deadline. The email will include more detail, but that is essentially it.
When does it start?
Next week. I will do the first Book a Date next Wednesday. Hopefully some of you will sign up so we can keep this rolling. Guess time will tell.
And that’s all there is to it. If you have any questions before signing up feel free to contact me by email or on Twitter. If not, come and play and Book a Date!
