Armchair BEA was born out of the desire to still be involved in this event, even if you couldn't afford to actually attend. There are live Twitter feeds from the event, interview videos, local (online) networking & tons of tips & giveaways! Be sure to keep updated on what things will be taking place by visiting the official Armchair BEA site & following them anywhere you can.
I certainly will be participating again this year since I enjoyed my posts so much last year. I also won like 3 books from all the giveaways, so it was an even bigger bonus. Be sure to spread the word about this incredible online event!
