In San Fran and having a bang-up time. Heading for the airport to go back to L.A. but I needed to take this moment to plead with you all (preaching to the choir, I know) to please, please, please support your local indie book store. They are hurting folks. I signed in two of them (including Eso Won, which thought they'd be closed by the end of last year, but the community rallied to keep them afloat...so far) and stopped in the legendary City Lights Book Store. The word every place is the same: hanging on by a thread and hoping to stay open.
I'm broke as the next person. I love Amazon and the chains. And God knows I want my novel to fly off the shelves at Target. But maybe we can all make a practice of buying 3, 5, 10 books at our local indie for every 1 we buy online or at a chain.
