very fun and full day today.
i started by writing at a cafe. then headed
to melissa marr’s signing at the mysterious
galaxy, where part of the brat pack (amy
and heather) met up with me.

it was lovely meeting melissa. she was more
petite than i imagined and so vivacious and
random and fun! she threw prizes at the audience
and i WON a beautiful black and purple wicked
lovely shirt in german! yes, be jealous. i squeed
much. ha!

then we headed to the ocean and had a
wonderful sunset picnic, the bubs played
ball with the love and i read (GIVE UP THE GHOST
by fellow 09 deb megan crewe) and enjoyed
an especially fragrant passion fruit tea. a near
perfect day, truly. this is the good life.

i also got confirmation finally for an OC signing.
not in los angeles but i hope LA friends can make
it :

hooray! the nyc signing will be a month
later and i’ll confirm that probably in july.

also, i had no idea that my phone interview
on friday morning–which was wham bam fast
but super fun–could be heard online. thanks
to david for cluing me in two minutes before i
went on air. ha!

  1. Melissa Marr’s books seems to be wonderful! And the picture is lovely!

    A lot of good luck and best wishes to your signing Cindy! =) Hope to read it at your blog!



  2. I wanted to go to Melissa’s signing, but had family stuff to do. i had a feeling you’d be there. Sounds like it was a blast. Nothing like summer in San Diego, right?

  3. I think you’ll find that EVERYTHING can be found on the internet these days — even 2 minute interviews on obscure CO radio stations! (haha)

    But, yes, you did great on that one. Looking forward to hearing the next!

  4. HL–it was a really fun signing! had a great time!

    christine, too bad you missed it! it was a lovely day yesterday and looks like today too! no june gloom!

    david, so true. only i’m too sad to figure it out!

  5. Cute picture! I’m so glad things are going well.

    Now, I have to read Wicked Lovely. I think you’re officially the 100th person who’s mentioned it ;).

    Yay for perfect Saturdays!
