Hello again my friends, its nice to have you returning for the continuing exploration of the 2018 Book Expo. This massive publishing industry event was once again taking over the Javits Center for a few days and we are on point to show you what is going on with some of our favorite publishers and to see what might be a brand-new discovery. If you missed the previous chapter please click HERE to bring up the stuff so far presented and with that being done I will continue along with these cool Marvel and Star Wars books for kids by Disney.

Exploring The Book Expo 2018: Part One

It was once again time for the annual Book Expo at the Javits Center and as tenured readers of “The Chronicles” know, we have been attending this particular convention since around 2011. I’ve only missed it twice since then with one of the times happening when it relocated to Chicago for some reason. This adventure was going to be the first in a series of events since not only will the Book Expo lead us into The Book Con, but the Five Points Festival will be happening in a few days and we are attending that as well. The Book Con stuff will be here while the Five Points Festival coverage will fall to PiercingMetal.com so do please check both of those out as they go live.

For those of you who have never attended or know much about the Book Expo, this particular event is aimed at the industry and select press only.  That means the publishers, vendors, librarians and marketers for this industry along with select press.

Incendiary Doings @ NYC Hot Sauce Expo 2018: Part 1

It seems like only yesterday that we were heading over to Williamsburg for the 1st Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo which was a brand-new event started by our friends over at High River Sauces. That was six years ago and while the first couple of events were discussed on my PiercingMetal.com website, I’ve been keeping them here as a part of the Lifestyle vibe that you get with “The Chronicles” for the last few years.

With this being the sixth such expo for me, I will admit that its gotten a little tricky in how to deliver the fun to your device of choice so I am just going to walk around and see what I see and snap what I snap.  The links at the bottom will take you to a number of vendors and their wares.  Let’s go.

Hey there and welcome back to the presentation that I’ve been doing over the last few days which is an in-depth exploration of the New York International Auto Show.

This chapter brings me to the end of my exploration on the Media and Industry Day and if you are just joining us you’ll want to click on THIS LINK to see all of the preceding chapters.  Let’s continue.

Welcome back friends and thanks for your continued interest in our adventures at the 2018 New York International Auto Show. I’m up to our fourth installment so if you’ve only just joined our presentations you’ll want to click on THIS LINK, it will launch a new browser tab and line out all of the posts that came before it.   I’m going to pick up where I left off which was my visual examination of the Jeep confidence course.  I was really excited to go on this since during Media and Industry day the lines are not over the top.   Sorry there isn’t any video of this.
