Great Events and Interviews!

new banner for my book (2)pic in the darkme at the sdba (2)

I attended the San Diego Book Awards 2013 on Saturday night. It was a lot of fun.  There were many writers from all kinds of fields. I had a lot of fun at my table talking to other writers from the area and their families. My new banner looked really beautiful as you can see. The picture to the left happened during a period when the lights went out. I was surprised that the lights went out and the flash made me burst into giggles as the picture was taken. That is why I look I am about to burst out into laughter.  There was a great diversity in  the winners. And I loved my red velvet cupcake 🙂

There was so much to see and I think we walked every mile of the Del Mar Race Track to check it out.  I have the aching legs to prove it.  We went to all the craft shows, checked out all the art displays and ate a lot of fattening food. At the end of the day I did something I always wanted to do but was a little afraid.  I put it all in my blog called; I Rode An Elephant at the San Diego County Fair http://wp.me/p2MXM9-C via @wordpressdotcom
