What is that? I hear you ask.
The Brain to Books Cyber Convention & Book Expo has the feeling of a normal book/author convention but with so much more for the readers to see, hear and play.
The Cyber Convention is celebrating it’s 3rd year and it’s bigger than ever! Angela, B Chrysler is the brains, and working mechanics behind the CyCon and owner of Brain to Books, which is an open portal for independent authors. And thanks to the hard work of the genres managers, customer service, tech and the rest of the working wheels – who are ALL volunteers and have spent months making sure you and all the authors are happy and this years CyCon and Book Expo is going to be the most successful and largest ever!
Let me break it down. Imagine 200+ authors taking part in genre specific events such as Blog Hop, Genre Tours, Panels, Cover Wars, Character Tournaments just to name a few and then you, the readers can come into the convention and take part and it’s all FREE.
And then you have Storytime, where two wonderful and extremely busy ladies (who are also authors) make time to read excerpts from authors books. So grab a coffee or tea and get curled up on the couch to listen and watch Storytime.
The Blog-Hops are happening all over Facebook, websites and blogs. Follow the sign posts to all the blogs, take part, have fun, support all these amazing authors and enter to win books, swag, Amazon Gift Cards and lots more.
You can vote in the Cover Wars for your favourite book cover.
The panels are unscripted and start off with a theme and then the discussion gets passionate when the writers’ talk about the industry, their books, and life in general and you never know what will happen.
The Book Expo are book features, again genre specific, so that you, the readers, can go your favourite genre, and take a look at books you’ve never seen before by authors you have never heard of.
The Author showcase, which is run from Goodreads, work as book booth, just like actual conventions have. Here you can learn more about the author and their books, you can take your time as you stroll through the convention, stopping at booths that catch your eye. Ask the author a question – you know you’ve always wanted to do that. And don’t forget to take some samples and a grab bag when they are offered.
Don’t forget to enter the giveaways (there’s one for every genre)
And then there is JOE LIVE where you can click on anytime throughout the convention. Joe live is recording the convention, with live discussions, chat’s with authors and general chit chat and information about the convention 24/7. When Joe goes and shuts his eyes for a few hours, I will be taking over. So tune in you can watch and listen live anytime throughout the day and night and you can ask questions to myself, Joe and any of the authors that join us.
And for the first time, MC (motorcycle club) authors are now represented. Here is a showcase just for this awesome genre. You can listen to short readings of the best fight scenes in their novels, become a biker and take part in B2BCyCon Biker Run and learn who won the title of the BADDEST MC NOVEL, in the Biker Wars contest.
Umm what else have I missed? Seriously, there is so much for you to do, so much fun to be had on the cyber convention and book expo.
