NIMPOMO BOOK AND CRAFT FAIR

Barbara Hodges and co-author at Nipomo

And Me at Nipomo

If you've never heard of Nipomo, California, it's a small town just north of Santa Maria. Once a year the Friends of the Nipomo Library put on a small craft and book fair on the front lawn and the porch of the library--and today is the day.

These photos were taken about three years ago, but we are in the same place today from 9 to 2 p.m.

We arrived in Santa Maria yesterday, checked in to the Santa Maria Inn and then headed down to Nipomo to have dinner with Barbara Hodges and her husband, Jeff. This has become a yearly ritual for us. I met Barbara several years ago at a Win.Win Conference when she came to a workshop I did on ebooks, long before anyone knew much about them.

It used to be Barbara and I only saw each other once or twice a year, but now she comes to PSWA's conference too, so we have more opportunities to schmooze.

This is one of the pluses of being an author--the great friends you make along the way.

If you happen to be in the area today, be sure to stop by, I'll be on the porch.

And of course I have a typo and they are a pain to fix on this little computer.
