Smugglers Stash

Smugglers’ Stash & News

Howdy, howdy, howdy! It has been a long, exhausting, incredible week, but we are finally done with BEA and headed home. And on that note, here’s what we have planned for the week. (And because we are in full recovery mode, this post will be brief!)

Giveaway Winners:

…PSYCH! As we have quite a few winners to announce, we will be announcing them later today. So stick around.

This Week on The Book Smugglers:

On Monday, we will have our official Book Expo America (& Book Blogger Convention) Report – complete with our book hauls, bloggers and publishers we met, trends and upcoming titles, authors to watch, and other assorted tidbits.

Tuesday, we have an interview with Carlos Ruiz Zafon in conjunction with his UK Tour for The Prince of Mist – we’ll also be giving away a copy to a lucky reader.

On Wednesday, Thea reviews YA fantasy novel Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon…

And on Thursday and Friday, we have a John Green spotlight! Ana reviews Looking for Alaska on Thursday, and on Friday John Green himself stops by with a guest post on his inspirations and influences for Paper Towns. PLUS we will be giving away FIFTEEN copies of Paper Towns.

It’s a less busy week, but we hope you enjoy (and don’t mind too much while we catch our breath – we’ll be back full force with a BEA Appreciation week…so stick around)!

    Will be interested to see what you think of the Cindy Pon. I read it when it first came out and I was really excited about it. I think I am still not sure what I thought of it.

    Hey!!! 😀 I met you guys at BEA (because I’m a horrible eavesdropper when I’m bored) and I’m excited to have found you 🙂 Yay!

    u know, this has been a really informative week(s) of posting with the BEA stuff. I hadn’t known what u guys looked like before; it hadn’t even occurred to me to even really wonder! I think I just sorta automatically imagined u looked like the 2 animated girls here on ur blog 😆 Plus, I didn’t realize that u both didn’t really see each other often, much less that you’d both hit it off so quickly by meeting at previous BEA–did I read that right? It’s been cool getting to hear about it all & I look forward to reading your BEA reports 😀

    I CANNOT WAIT for John Green’s post! That just has to be one of the awesome-est things to happen EVER for anyone.

    Hi Thea,
    Thanks so much for participating in the BBC marketing panel. You had so much to say about a world to which I am so very new. Yep, I’m a Luddite author gently wading into an online life. Thanks for offering me informative water wings.

    Your site is eclectic and I’m looking forward to following,
    Helen Ellis

    Glad you gals had a marvelous time last week. Please take some time to rest, relax, and recover.
    Love the pic of you two. It’s nice to have faces with the names. And the WW t-shirt is too cool. Looking forward to your future posts :mrgreen:
