I did my very first authors' panel today. Thanks to Corey Roskin for making the West Hollywood Book Festival a really pleasant experience. Amy Wallen, Moon Pies and Movie Stars (http://www.amywallen.com) was a great moderator, and I was in some illustrious company, notably Selden Edwards, The Little Book (http://www.seldenedwards.com), David Fuller, Sweet Smoke (http://www.sweetsmokedavifuller.com), and Peter Balasakas. And thanks to Book Soup, the fantastic Hollywood indie bookstore, for sponsoring the signing booth. I look forward to doing more festivals. Panels at book fairs have a lot going for them: a built in audience, a conversation rather than a presentation, and the company of other writers. Great fun!
