#SIBA10 is Around the Corner – Mark Your Calendar

This year, the SIBA Trade Show is being held at sister indie properties that are side by side by the seaside.  And it is predicted that the air will be filled with book-talk among the southern book industry elite.  The most successful Southern Social Networking Summit Redux will be offered on Thursday.  Linda Barrett-Knopp of Malaprops’ credits the summit for Malaprops’ finding its sweet spot. We are also expecting a host of bloggers so that booksellers can Get in Bed with a Blogger. Education, Publishers, and Authors, oh my!  The ever popular Moveable Feast is back along with many SIBA favorites.  New this year is the Tweet Up a Rep and the Technology Pavilion where anyone visiting the exhibits can stop and learn a new piece of technology that will help you sell more books.  Twitter, Facebook and Ustream, oh my!

Southern Social Networking Summit a HIT!

I’m back from the Southern Social Networking Summit in Greenville, SC.  It was an exhausting & exhilarating two days.  I want you to know that I am busy compiling the results of everyone’s efforts.  I have nearly 40 oversized pages of notes taken by the break-out groups that I am organizing and will be posting over the next week in this blog.  So many people have written blog posts, posted videos & photos, twittered and facebooked, and I want to take the time to thank everyone.  And I want to share these links with you.  The video clips include testimonials and a word from Gary Vaynerchuk.
