Oak Tree Authors at the San Gabriel Valley Litfest

Last weekend was so full I'm still recovering.


On Sunday, we (miiddle daughter who did all the driving) left Wildomar and headed for West Covina and the San Gabriel Vally Litfest. As usual, it took awhile to figure out exactly where we ought to be, upstairs in City Hall in an open space that turned out to be very windy and cold. And at times too noisy to talk thanks to musicians playing and singing close by. That wasn't good because in order to get people interested in your books you need to be able to talk to them and they have to hear you.

Introducing myself to a delightful woman.

We continue to chat.

I jumped from one table to another--this one I shared with Larry and Lorna Collins, me and daughter, Lisa.


Oak Tree Press authors
 Sunny Frazier, Aquisitions Editor for OTP, Marja McGraw, Me, John Brantingham the brains behind the SGV Litfest, Marta Chausee, Lorna Collins, Morgan St. James.

As you may notice, I now am wearing a shawl, the wind was really cold sailing through that open space.

I understand that on Friday and Saturday far more people came by--that was not the case on Sunday.
We had our readings in the evening and they were not well-attended, perhaps Sunday evening isn't the best time for this kind of event.

In any case, I was tickled to see everyone and have the opportunity to visit with them a bit. Sold one book and traded books with two authors.

Saturday was much better, and Marja said Friday was as well. But it was wonderful to be with everyone.
