I'll be giving Book Expo a go this year.
Its the 17th and 18th of October at Sydney Olympic park.
i know Dave Hackett will be there and the Christmas Press people...
If you are interested it should potentially cost nothing to come along because I was allocated 150 free tickets- (way more than my # of facebook friends).
How to get the free tickets?
Use the coupon code ‘lach’
"on the website,
following the ‘buy tickets’ link on the top right hand corner of the site, you reach a checkout with a coupon slot. After applying the code and finalising a $0.00 purchase, the tickets are sent to the email address as a pdf, which can either be printed, or scanned from a device."
