On To San Francisco

Meet Mr. Welsh, my far-better-half without whom I'd never get anything done.

Here we are at the West Hollywood Book Fair. - my first BOOK FAIR.

It was quite an education. I've always been a library junkie, but never having had a lot of what you call discretionary funds, stores where books were actually SOLD were a rare treat. Buying a book even more unusual. Then came a steady job and a savings account and IRAs and all that good stuff - that may have become stuff of legend as I write. Soon thereafter came computers and Amazon and American Express and now I just click happily away on my laptop and wait for the next luscious treasure to arrive.

But a BOOK FAIR? Just never did it. Now I have. I felt like a was back on the front lawn with a card table and two big pitchers of KoolAid hopefully accosting neighbors who passed. That was back in the days when people actually walked to the store.

I'm very glad I did it, tiring as it was, because I met so many new friends. Hope each of you is reading this and thanks for buying my book.
