It is a buzzy time of year....

Submissions for BEA Editors’ Buzz are due next week - closing November 18th!!! 

If you have not been or don't know what a Buzz panel is: BEA Editors’ Buzz is one of the marquee platforms at BEA for promoting new titles.  It is where editors share their excitement and passion for their Fall 2016 releases!

Previous Buzz highlights: We Are Not Ourselves: A Novel, by Matthew Thomas; Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel; Five Days At Memorial, by Sheri Fink; Room, by Emma Donoghue; The Art of Fielding, by Chad Harbach, Brain on Fire, by Susannah Cahalan; The Maze Runner, by James Dasher; Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell; What’s Left of Me, by Kat Zhang; The Jewel, by Amy Ewing, and Life of Zarf, Rob Harell.

There are rules and selection guidelines for publishers to follow.  The three main Buzz panels are:
• Adult Editors’ Buzz
• Young Adult Editors’ Buzz
• Middle Grade Editors’ Buzz

The attraction for booksellers and industry people are hearing from the editor of the presented the title and understanding why they are so invested, what excited them in the first place, details on what made them believe in a title and why they expect it to be such a big book.  

BEA has added a Editors Buzz panels in 2015 for Graphic Novels and Translated Titles. We are now planning to add a Sci-Fi Fantasy Buzz panel for BEA 2016 in Chicago as well as plans to have the books available in a digital format..

Virtually every book that has been selected to one of the main Editor's Buzz Panels over the last 3 years has landed on the New York Times bestsellers list.  We look forward to getting all the submissions from publishers big and small, the books are selected by a very hard working committee.

  1. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesn't disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you weren't too busy looking for attention.
