Book fairs and exhibitions seem like they should be easy to get into.  After all, the idea is to showcase books from a wide variety of authors, right?  In reality, my experience is that this arena is very competitive.  Getting in these kind of shows can be easier if you find one tailored to your writing’s audience versus a general show if you are not a well-known author.  These “specialty shows” may be willing to see what they can do to fit in a few more people and make a smaller event grow than a giant mega event that’s likely turning away a number of names at the door.  That’s not to say don’t try, just don’t be surprised if those larger venues are less likely to bite.
