News from the road, fresh from Hollywood

I’ve just spent a wonderful evening with the folks at Book Soup here in West Hollywood. I was also able to have dinner with blogger Kanani Fong and her Writerly Pause group . . . check her blog for the story on that.

Now I’m off to the airport, but before I go, I want to update you all on this week’s events. If I make it to a city near you I certainly hope you’ll come say hello.
Woof!

Hi John, That was indeed a fun dinner. I went home last night and remembered my son had taken the train up to Hollywood. So I ended up picking him and his friend up as well.

I'll have SOMETHING up my own blog as well as The Writerly Pause this week about your talk. I'm going to be working on a story for my fashion blog The Literary Fashionista first (and because I've been sitting on the stuff for over a week).

Safe travels, my friend. Your talks are worth every mile people go to get there.

Naaw. It's really cute that you actually put "Woof!" into your blogposts ;-)

Catching up here, John! Congrats on the paperback version of your book and have fun on your tour. You've got great weather for your two Colorado visits this week. Wish I could attend, but I'll certainly be thinking about you. Enjoy!! Karen

You're doing some great work, John, and how wonderful to get to meet some of your blogging friends on the road.

John Elder Robison said...

Thanks to all of you for your support . . . it keeps me going. Anti-Wife . . . you'll be an honored guest. You're one of the original members of my blog family.

And Jess, you have plenty to tire you out in the stock market, hopefully it will have calmed down by next week when I get to Boston.

Karen, I missed you tonight but we had a great group at the Boulder Bookstore.

And Kanani actually has PICTURES. She will no doubt share them soon . . . .

I had dinner with Doreen Orion and her mate tonight, and she has pictures too . . . .

Kanani said...

HEY... Yeah...okay....here is the write up. Enjoy!

That's hilarious Kanani, great job. I've met John a couple of times and I could talk writing with him forever. Now I've got to go look for that dirty tee shirt.
