What a wild ride it has been this past year!
To celebrate the paperback publication of “The Lost Diary of Don Juan,” I gave two book readings in the San Francisco Bay area on Monday, July 7, 2008. One at Book Passage in Corte Madera and one at Capitola Book Cafe in Capitola. I couldn't believe the number of people that came out to celebrate the publication of the paperback and to hear me speak about what I've learned about publishing fiction (and how to get it published in 30 languages!).
I also told new stories from my adventures in Europe, more of Don Juan's secrets, and (very exciting for me!) my adventures in movieland - the movie rights were just bought last month!
In addition to celebrating the paperback, I've finished my newest book and sent it off to the publisher. I'm working on revisions now, and it will hopefully be out in the Fall of 2009.
August is going to be a bit of a break from writing for me as I will be going on a cruise to celebrate my in-laws anniversary and taking a rafting trip with my 13 year old son, Jesse, on the Colorado River. Then, it'll be back to the grindstone to finish up revisions my newest book.
