Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

The Tequila Report (sort of) from NYC

You should have been with me in New York City! Last week a triple dose of fun:

  • Book Expo America - the tradeshow for the publishing industry at the Javits Center where I met favorite authors Barbara Kingsolver, Richard Ford, Alix Kates Shulman, Richard Ford and Joyce Carol Oates and SO many more and scored so many free books I couldn't lift my luggage into the overhead on the flight home. If you love to read this show is nirvana. Visit the link above and hear Dan Rather's presentation.

    Barbara Kingsolver presents her Bellwether Prize for Socially Conscious Writing

    My son, Scott Fox, was a presenter at both expos and was signing his third book Click Millionaires (my excuse for being in New York)

  • Blog World & New Media Expo - the world's largest conference for bloggers, podcasters and online content creators. I was on a panel moderated by Scott Fox titled "Making Money from your Favorite Niche Market." The other panelists niches were Walt Disney World, Security Guards and Backyard Chickens!

    I know some of the members here are bloggers. There are some excellent links at the Blog World site that will give you tips on growing your blog: Also, read the article about Social Media for small businesses that have no time for social media.

    (Testing out the new Trek Desk on the expo floor -- supposedly sitting at your desk is as bad for you as smoking! Who knew?)

  • New York City. Need I say more? It's been a long time since I've been there. What great energy everywhere. It's a marvelous city. We saw a Broadway show, had another birthday celebration for me (Manhattans in Manhattan), walked the new High Line Park through formerly desolate neighborhoods, saw the space shuttle on the Intrepid.

This photo is for my granddaughters - in addition to Elmo everyone seemed to be near Times Square that evening!

Have any of you been in New York recently? Was anyone at Lincoln Center last weekend? Would LOVE a report on that one and probably should have stayed a day or two more for a visit.

I was a Lincoln Center last weekend.

I know you were. I get your promotional emails, Sandhi. And I wish I had been able to stick around and see you and that show which I've heard such conflicting accounts of. Used to be fabulous, is fabulous, totally suck-y, buy/sell rampant, the best show in NYC, etc. Can you fill us in? and how are your East Coast shows going?
