Blogger Book Fair is moving!

Hey guys! I've decided to move the BBF over to wordpress. I think wordpress will be able to accommodate our needs much better, so please head over there and follow the new BBF site!

It's still under construction so bare with us. Also, the next BBF event is the BBF Writing and Marketing Workshop in February. To learn more or to participate go to this link:

Thanks everyone! Hope to see you on the new site soon!

Blogger Book Fair Last Call

It's the last day of the BBF and that also means that many of the giveaways are ending today, although some will keep going for a few more days. Make sure you get your entries in!

It also means that many of the $.99 and free books will no longer be available for those prices after today, so make sure you have what you want from the list!

If you enjoyed the BBF, please sign up to be notified by email of our next one. That way you won't miss a thing!

It's been a great five days and every one has worked hard. I'd especially like to thank my volunteers, Fel Wetzig and Pereza Thompson for all their help. I couldn't have done this one with out them! I'd also like to thank Sheri at the Shut Up and Read blog for her work on the Reader's Choice Awards. The winners of those awards will be announced today, so be sure to stop in and congratulate the winners!

Again, any comments you may have about how to make the BBF better are appreciated. Leave them in the comments below or email me at! Thank you everyone who participated and attended. This was the biggest one yet and I have tons of requests from authors and bloggers to join the next one! I hope to see you there!

BBF is looking for more volunteers!

My two volunteers have done such an awesome job. They helped me get everything ready and I wouldn't have been able to pull it off with out them. I'm talking about Fel Wetzig and Pereza Thompson. They rock and they deserve some recognition!

Now, since BBF is growing and getting just about out of control, I will probably need at least four volunteers for the next one. I don't want to burden anyone with too much work, so the more volunteers the better. Since it is a long way off, please let me know if you are interested via email at I will put you on a list and contact you when I need to start organizing the next one.

There won't be any pressure. If I contact you in a few months and you've taken on some projects, no big deal. But I want to present the opportunity now while the BBF is still fresh in your brains. Tasks would be working with Google Drive, helping with social media, and working on Blogger (Maybe Wordpress if I decide to make the jump.)

So, if you want to help out or even if you have some ideas, email me! I'd love to hear from you! have a great day and don't forget to check out the directory some more to make sure you didn't miss anything! The events are still going, books are still free or on sale and you better make sure you enter those giveaways while you still can!

Blogger Book Fair wants to know what you think!

Well, this is the third event I've held and I think I'm getting the hang of things. It's crazy to think about how quickly this event grew into such a huge thing. I know that this blogspot blog won't be able to handle the event for much longer, so I'm planning on getting a real website within the next six months.

Before I do that, I need to know what you think. You readers, writers, bloggers and authors who attend this event mean a lot to me and I need to know your opinions on the BBF, what I should include in the new website and what I should change. I know that some things need to change to accommodate as many people as possible, but I would love to hear your suggestions.

I'd even like to know what website host I should use. Really, any advice you have I will welcome! So, in the comments below, tell me all about it. I will take everything into consideration. How can I make this event bigger and better?

If you don't feel comfortable posting in the comments, please feel free to email me at! Thank you everyone!

How to make sure you see everything you want to in the BBF

Okay, so there is so much going on with this event, how can you make sure you don't miss anything? you can definitely use the BBF Directory to your advantage.

Here is what I'm doing:

On the Authors and Bloggers page, you'll see five sections. Five sections, five days of the BBF. Go through one section a day and then if you want to, revisit your favorite places next week! (Better yet, follow the blogs you like!) That is the beauty of an online event, everything will still be there when the event is over!

Now, you do need to make sure that you don't miss out on the giveaways and free/$.99 books. Be sure to go through these pages at some point, because you will kick yourself if you miss these opportunities to get some great books and prizes.

Next, check out the events. These are particularly fun blog events that cater to your interests.

Lastly, don't forget to vote in the Reader's Choice Awards. This will tell your favorite author that you care and give them the confidence to write more books!

So, have a seat, don't worry about changing out of your pj's, (I know I'm not) and check out all the awesome stuff we have to offer!
