Nipomo Book Event



This is the first photo (that came out half way decent) taken with my new iPhone.

On our way we stopped at Jack Ranch for lunch in Cholame--famous for the fact that's where James Dean died on the highway. There are photos of James Dean on the walls of the little cafe--which has wonderful fish and chips, by the way.

We had a great time in Nipomo. Actually we stayed Friday night in Arroyo Grande and had dinner in Pismo at Steamers with Barbara and Jeff Hodges. I've known Barbara since Win Win Writers Conference Days--and thought we've done a couple of booksignings together in the pasts it's been awhile seen we've seen one another. Food was excellent and we had an ocean view window and we sat and gabbed for a couple of hours.

The next day we drove to the Nipomo Library, once again thanks goodness for Mrs. Magellan because she took us right there. It was a smallish event with mostly craft booths. Barbara and I were on the porch and good friend and mystery writer Sue McGinty had a table out on the grass. There were a couple of children's book authors and two other authors that I never had time to meet.

As usual, the only way to sell books is to engage people in conversation--which I did, of course.

This was the first time the Friends of the Library did this event and I thought it went quite well. I'd love to do it again. (Besides, I love going over to the coast.)

That evening hubby and I went to A.J. Spurs for dinner--they give you way too much food. If we lived near one hubby and I would either share a meal or take home half the food for the next day.

The drive there and back was great.

And that was our wonderful weekend! By the way, can you tell we like to eat out?

I love AJ Spurs. Think I like Jocko's the best. That part of California is just beautiful. I wish I was there right now.
