I am a panelist at Book Blogger Con 2011!!!

I announced this on Facebook a few weeks ago, but also wanted to share my exciting news here...

I have been selected to be a panelist for the Blogging for a Niche Market session on the topic of Historical Fiction at the Book Blogger Convention in New York this May!!!  Yippeeeee!!!

You cannot imagine how excited I am and even though it's months away, I'm already anxious!  I'm not a big fan of public speaking but being that it's my most favorite subject to talk about I think I'll be okay :)  And I am thrilled at the prospect of meeting the authors and bloggers I've become friends with over the years!!  It's going to be a blast!

Here are the panelists for Blogging for a Niche Market session:

Florinda [The Three R's Blog] – moderator
Katie [Babbling About Books and More] – Romance
Sarah, Erin & Jenny [Forever Young Adult] – Young Adult
Amy [Passages to the Past] – Historical Fiction
Thea [The Book Smugglers] – Sci Fi/Fantasy
Rebecca [Rebecca Reads] – Classics
Jen [Jen's Book Thoughts] – Mystery/Crime Fiction
Jill [Rhapsody in Books] – Non-Fiction
Jennifer [Reading Rants] – Kidlit/Librarianship
Mitali [Mitali's Fire Escape] – Diversity
Cass [Bonjour Cass] – GLBTQ
Tanya [Dog Eared Copy] – Audiobooks

I just wanted to thank the BBC committee for this honor and I hope I represent the Historical Fiction bloggers well at the convention and can't wait to meet everyone there!

So, will you be attending the Book Blogger Con 2011?
