West Hollywood Book Fair

If you're in the L.A. area, and you like books, writing, and people watching, then you've got to attend the West Hollywood Book Fair on Sunday, September 28. The event takes place in West Hollywood Park, 647 N. San Vicente.

At this year's WEHO Book Fair, I'll be participating on a panel-- We Are Everywhere: New and Unique Voices in LGBT Literature. It'll be moderated by Christopher Rice, and will feature Alistair McCartney, Vanessa Place, Jess Wells, and me. We're on at 11 - 11:55 am.

I've always enjoyed the event, even before I was a published author. A number of the panels are like classes, and I know in these times when money can be tight, anything that resembles a "free" class is something to attend. And it's an especially great place to network and make contacts you wouldn't have the chance to do by sitting at home.

As well, I've gotten to meet many authors up close and personal, because of the intimacy of the space. Imagine walking past Jackie Collins while you're on your way to see Victoria Rowell while you're hanging with Fiona Zedde? It's that easy to see and meet people.

Finally, it's all about L.A. at the WEHO Book Fair. The authors, subject matter, location, and ambience all celebrate what makes up West Hollywood and Los Angeles.

Anyway, make a date for you and your friends, significant other, or family members to stop by the West Hollywood Book Fair on Sunday, September 28.
