Are you enjoying the NAPO2015 recap so far? I know I am! The fun continues today with a great post by Hazel Thornton about a very special booth at the Organizing Expo. I caught wind of it through some discussions on Facebook when it was in the planning stages, and it sounds like it was a great success!
The NAPO2015 Conference was held at the iconic Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The Hollywood inspired theme was “Shoot for the Stars”. One of the highlights for me was participating in the NAPO Author SIG Bookstore. This Expo booth was conceived, coordinated, and “womanned” by Donna Smallin Kuper and Ramona Creel. All participants were members of the NAPO Authorship & Publishing SIG (Special Interest Group), led by Deborah Cabral and Debbie Lillard.
The bookstore offered some of the industry’s best-loved books, plus many newly-released titles, as well as DVDs and other informational products. Here is a sampling…OK, a complete list…of the booth’s offerings:

I’ll admit I worried a little that the booth would be ignored in its location in the very far back corner of the Expo Hall. HA! It turned out to be a jumping joint! Each author got a 30-minute time slot for a book signing or a meet-and-greet, and a successful, good time was had by all. It was a wonderful opportunity for those of us who would never have the funds or stamina to run an individual booth of our own. Together we are better.
Thank you, Donna and Ramona, for shooting for the stars!
Here’s to doing it again next year!
