Happy Holidays!

 

I’ll be missing another OCC meeting this month.  This holiday season, I’ve unfortunately had a lot of conflicts between events I want to attend.  Last weekend, I managed to stop in at a lunchtime party given by a dog club I belong to, then head to a joint party given by the local chapters of both Mystery Writers of America and Sisters in Crime.

Next weekend, when OCC meets, I will be at the Glendale Author Signing Festival.  Unfortunately, there’s no way I can work out being in both Brea and Glendale at the same time.  Wish I could–especially since this month’s program sounds great!

I’m just hoping that next year is more flexible.  I have belonged to OCC for quite a while and love it and its members.  Getting to more meetings is definitely a goal of mine, and I’m sure I’m not alone in that.

So, hopefully, see you in January!  And I’ll have lots of news next year…

Los Angeles Times Festival of Books

by Linda O. Johnston

Sorry to say that, once again, I’ll be missing this month’s OCC meeting. The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books is the same weekend, and I’m doing things there both days.

Of course they’re predicting rain, maybe even thunderstorms, for both Saturday and Sunday. During almost any other time I’d be thrilled about that. Not next weekend, though.

I’ve been attending the LATFOB for many years, starting when it was held at the UCLA campus. Now it is at USC, which in some ways is more convenient for me since I can take the Metro there rather than drive.

There are a lot of interesting-sounding speakers and panels this year, although I probably won’t hear any of them. I’ll be busy signing at a couple of booths for mystery writers, helping to staff the booth promoting the Mystery Writers of America, and volunteering at the romance writers’ booth. It’s always fun to walk around and see what else is going on, too. And buy a few books? Why not!

I always think it’s fun to attend any kind of book event, and the LATFOB is always huge and enjoyable. I’m sure it will be this year, too–depending on the amount and timing of any rain.

And as an author, I find it very helpful and productive to attend these kinds of events and meet potential readers and other authors. How about you?

I hope the OCC meeting goes great–and I hope to get there again soon. And in the meantime, even if you attend OCC this weekend, you can always head up to the USC campus on Sunday to check out the LATFOB.
