Getting Out There!

It's a busy time of year, with lots of events before we hit the holidays.

Recently saw client Julie Newmar on a Panel, "From Actress to Author," at the West Hollywood Book Fair. I loved watching how animated Julie is when she presents and talks about her new book, "The Conscious Catwoman Explains Life on Earth."

Here I am (a little sunburned) with Julie after the book-signing at the WEHO Fair.

Julie appears at Vroman's in Pasadena next Saturday at 5 PM. Her event received excellent advance coverage today in the Star News. Visit to learn more about this famous Catwoman and her book.

Two of my clients (Anita Reinsma / "Stop Waiting for Prince Charming, He's Already Married to Bob") and Lauren Gale ("Confessions of a Recovering Drama Queen") received Irwin Awards on October 20th. In the picture below, I am posing with the two authors like a proud mama just before the Book Publicists of S. California dinner and awards ceremony.

Yesterday, up in Camarillo, I made the rounds at the Ventura County Book & Authors Fair. Met many interesting authors, including Mickey Jones, who wrote "That Would Be Me," his memoir of life on the road as a drummer. Mickey shared with me that when he performed with Trini Lopez, both the then-unknown groups the Beatles and the Rolling Stones acted as warm-up bands for Trini. Author Anita Reinsma spoke at the Fair Saturday on promoting your book, chatting a bit her videos on YouTube. Here she is at her booth with her niece, who's in the state visiting from the Netherlands.

As they say, a rolling stone gathers no moss! If you've got a book, get out there and promote!

Til next time,
