I'm finishing the month by heading down to Mt. San Antonio College or Mt. SAC as it's more commonly known this a.m. Because it's at least a 3 1/2 hour drive (may be more as we are old and have to make stops along the way) we'll probably leave around 8:30 a.m. We'll find out motel first then go to the college. I am giving a talk at around 4:30 p.m. about my books and what inspired them. Afterwards we're having dinner with relatives who live in the general area. The next morning our plan is to visit my 99 year old auntie.
May starts out with a bang. I'm got to West Hills College in Lemoore on May 5th to give a talk about promotion writers have to do these days.
The very next day we're headed to Las Vegas, first stop my sisters. On Mother's Day I'm giving a talk to the Las Vegas chapter of Sisters in Crime at 2 p.m. about where I get my ideas. I believe it's going to be at Barnes and Noble but haven't received the final word.
My eldest daughter is coming to visit the Monday we arrive home, so I'll be busy having fun with her. She's leaving on Friday the 13th and we're heading to Mooney Grove in Visalia to put up our booth for Young at Heart Day--where we'll be selling books.
On the 19th, I'm on a panel at 5 p.m. with two other mystery authors at the Cedar Clinton Library in Fresno. That's it for book promo, but we'll end the month going to a grandson's high school graduation.
Whew! That sounds like an awful lot to do in one month!
