Book Expo and Book Con 2018 with Lulu

BookExpo and BookCon 2018 Recap!

Ever wonder what the biggest book show in North America is like? Well, wonder no more! Here are all the highlights from BookExpo and BookCon 2018!

Author Signings

For the first year ever, we were lucky enough to have some of our wonderful authors join us for signings at the show!

Awesome Swag

Not only did we have AMAZING authors at our booth, but was also had some pretty incredible swag to giveaway! A spin on the Lulu prize wheel could win you notebooks, tote bags, t-shirts, Lulu Books and more!

Swag wasn’t the only thing we gave away, though! This year, one lucky winner received a free pass to BookCon! Big congrats to Frankie B. Mars for winning this year’s Lulu Scholarship!

If you were lucky enough to score one of our awesome BEA/BookCon notebooks, the fun doesn’t stop there! If you flip through the notebook you will find several Radlibs (just like Madlibs but way more Rad!) just waiting to be filled out. If you come up with something extra stellar, snap a photo of the completed Radlib and post it on Instagram!

Tag @luludotcom and use hashtag #creativetype. Or, send us that photo as an email attachment to with the subject line “Radlibs Contest Entry”. There are 5 Radlibs genres throughout the book, and we will pick one winning submission for each. Each winner will receive a $100 Visa gift card by mail!
