Steamed pudding (or as some of you know, "Spotted Dick")

Duarte Festival of Authors: Thank you to the organizers who were the most thoughtful and considerate I'd ever had the pleasure of working with, and Kate Danley would agree! Not only were we greeted with smooth registration and an incredible author's goodie bag (a tote bag, cookie, lunch container, pad o' paper, pencils, pen, and water), but a lunch voucher (meal + drink), from the food truck, assistance with unpacking the car, set-up, and the popping of my EZ Tent that I brought (!), timely panel summonings, volunteers to watch our tables, and AUTHOR ribbons!

The outdoor event was tree-covered, with good wind breakage from the Santa Ana winds. Attendance was mild (unlike past events, as some authors attested). I'm pretty sure book lovers were deterred by the forecast of high temps and high winds, so I really thank Duarte for such a well-organised effort. Am sleepy from my dose of sunshine and talking shop with Kate. Here's a pic of steamed pudding to celebrate a nicely done day!

Recipe, here:

WELCOME to my friend, author Kate Danley!
Queen Mab - Kate Danley



Follow, follow!


And participate in her BookLikes Giveaway of Queen Mab!


Kate and I will be appearing at Duarte Festival of Authors 2013, this Saturday! (I know, I just said that a post ago).


We each have quite a few events coming up---Kate will be at San Diego Comic Fest, I think (I won't be, still right foot-unenabled), Big Orange Book Festival, and I'll be at Comikaze Expo, Long Beach Comic Con, and LosCon 2013, the oldest science fiction/fantasy convention in Southern California, Thanksgiving weekend. And that will be that for 2013!


When does writing fit into all of that, I ask you! ;)

Located just a bit past Pasadena, CA (USA), drop in by airship if you must, it will be my 2nd outdoors event so I've learned the lesson to *not* dress in full neo-Victorian in lovely Los Angeles weather. Dear Kate will be doing all the heavy lifting as I'm still Miz Hobble. She's just released two new titles, Queen Mab being the latest and my Sundark is still in the proofing stage (wah!). But I'll have me Dark Victorian books, so come SEE.


Childrens Activities Area, Panels, discussions, Talks, meet the authors, sunshine!
