Event in Edmonton Tomorrow!
I am writing this from Seattle, where I have spent my three hour layover between Las Vegas and Edmonton watching Pride and Prejudice (the one with Kiera Knightley, not the one with Colin Firth) and writing things. Soon I will hop on a plane to Edmonton because there will be an event there tomorrow (September 13th) night!
So, without further adieu:
WHO: Me, Kelley Armstrong, Melissa Marr, Ally Condie, Charles de Lint, Beth Revis, and Margaret Stohl.
WHAT: Q&A, signing, and the fabulous LIGHTNING ROUND in which we answer fun questions very quickly.
WHERE: Chapters Westside
WHY: Um….amazing authors + Canadians + books = a really, really good time. I know this. I have experienced it before.
Side note: I’ve heard some rumors about me only signing books that are bought in-store for events? This rumor is not true. Sometimes authors have to do that because each store has its own set of restrictions for events— there are reasons they do that, often very good ones involving crowd control, but it’s not my guideline. If I am allowed to, I will sign ALL THE THINGS. I will sign shirts and pieces of paper and notecards (and sometimes, if I’m distracted and someone puts them in front of me by accident and I am feeling really pen-happy, I even start to sign other authors’ books). That is all.
I hope to see you Edmontonians (?) there!
Leave Only Paw Prints: Dog Hikes in San Diego County
Sat. Sept. 3rd @ 10AM Meet the Author!
Donna Lawrence is a dog-lover and a long-time resident of San Diego County, who is now living in Los Angeles. She has written for National Geographic Traveler, the San Diego Daily Transcript, and the San Diego Natural History Museum’s Field Notes, among others. With a Master’s Degree in Geography, Lawrence has long appreciated San Diego’s varied terrain; she enjoyed exploring the county with her husband and their adorable dog Bailey.
This book takes you to 77 places in San Diego County to hike with your canine pal, from mountain trails to desert roads, from backcountry chaparral to county and city regional parks. This handy guide also features off-leash parks and beaches, as well as picturesque urban walks you can both enjoy. More than 100 photos illustrate the diverse locales. You’ll also be able to check out rules, regulations and hours of parks and open spaces to help avoid disappointing experiences.
The appendix lists nearly 50 local inns and hotels that welcome you and your furry friend. You’re invited to take a look at the Table of Contents and to enjoy a Sample Hike right here online. And coming soon, the Photo Gallery will offer candid shots of lively pups having outdoor fun throughout San Diego County.
