First Book Signing Set for 'Boon'




The first book trailer for "Boon" is online [short version above, full-length version at right]. Although the concept of book trailers may seem odd to some, it's becoming more common in the book industry for both fiction and non-fiction. I'm interested in hearing what you think about the concept.

Also ... I'll be making my first official appearance as the author of "Boon" on Tuesday, Jan. 26, at the Society of Professional Journalists - Los Angeles Chapter Mixer in downtown Los Angeles.

The mixers are very casual, so I expect to keep it brief, a Q&A perhaps, more of a conversation than a "talk." The focus of the discussion will be the journey from journalism to fiction. I initially referred to it as a "road" from journalism to fiction, but changed my mind as the word "road" implies that there is a distinct path between the two worlds, which, in my experience, is not the case.

There will be no reading. I learned long ago to never read aloud in a bar. But, I will gladly sign a few books.



THE LOWDOWN:

WHEN: Tuesday, Jan. 26, at 6:30 p.m.

WHERE: The back room at the Redwood Bar and Grill, 316 W. 2nd Street in downtown LA; 213-680-2600. Street and lot parking is available in the area. The bar is close to the Civic Center Red Line Metro stop.

COST: It’s free fun for all! (You’ll have to buy your own drinks. Happy hour ends at 7 p.m.).

SPJ-LA asks that you let them know you’re coming by sending an e-mail to: spjlosangeles@gmail.com.

More info is available in the SPJ press release on the event. Download it in pdf format. Or, view it online at the SPJ-LA Web site.

Hope to see you there.

More information about "Boon" is available on the Books page.
