Yesterday, I attended the San Antonio Express News Book and Author Luncheon for the FIRST time. Never could get a seat before--it was always sold out! And now I can see why.
Lucky for me my friend, Evelyn, had an open seat at her table, so I was able to join her and 7 other interesting women to hear this year's authors: Paulette Jiles, Lucinda Scala Quinn, Imbolo Mbue, John T. Montford, Candice Millard, Andrea Beaty and Jim Lefko.
Esteemed Mistress of Ceremonies Coleen Grissom, shared her hilarious views on the worst and best writing she has encountered in her illustrious career as a professor and writer of literature and introduced these writers. The 25th Anniversary of the San Antonio Express News Book and Author luncheon benefitted the Cancer Therapy and Research Center of the UTHSCSA. Loved it!
Great success at my first book signing in Houston, Texas at the River Oaks Bookstore! It took place this past Thursday, October 20th from 5pm to 7pm. Many thanks to Michael Jones, Juan, Whitney, and the rest of the staff at River Oaks Bookstore for making it a wonderful evening. And thanks to all of you who joined me there and bought my books!
