NEWS & EVENTS
Please check out my blog page.
I used to blog on a separate site, but have decided it's easier to have everything in one place -- and as bad as I've been keeping things current, that makes a difference! The blog page contains bits and pieces, musings and rants, freeform sharing, just as before. I write something strikes my fancy, so there will be a wide variety of subjects. Reader feedback is always welcome, so come join the fun and let me know what you think.
Not sure of the process, but I'm going to try to bring over all my archived blogs. I also want to invite all those who were following the old ones to come join us here.

There is no cost to attend, although we appreciate attendees supporting Denny's by at least buying something to drink. Guests are always welcome! Lunch meetings are more casual. We don't have a formal speaker, but spend time reviewing what happened in the monthly evening meeting. We also discuss upcoming events and industry news.

Don't miss the California Author's Booth.
If you love to read, what could be better than meeting lots of California authors and getting them to autograph books for you? Each day there will be several different authors covering a variety of different genres. Check the calendar for your favorite and come out to meet and support them. I'll be there on opening day, July 12th, and also on the 21st., 24th., and 26th. My name is not on the calendar for the 26th, but I'm filling in for someone who had to cancel. The booth is right across from Cinnabon, so you can't miss us.
