If you never step outside your comfort zone, you will never grow. If that sounds ominous, it is! I have always dreamed of writing professionally, and have been told by several people “do something about your writing?” I have so far self-published 12 books and they are available on Amazon.com.
Last month I was invited to do a reading from one of my books by El Charro Hipster Restaurante located just off Grand Ave. with plenty of parking. The address is 1325 Grand Ave, in the heart of a beautiful Art Hive! This is a new program, conceived to “Bring Back the Art of Conversation!”
I said yes before I thought about all the reasons not to step outside my comfort zone. My hubby encouraged me and listened to my reading many times and make helpful suggestions. I loved reading the excerpt from “The End of the Road” and had a great time. I was thrilled when a woman approached me and said she would propose it for her book club.
The Peralta family made us all feel at home. BTW, the food is fabulous, the wait staff is friendly and helpful. El Charro Hipster is environmentally friendly by using only 100% compostable items. I brought home half of my sandwich and had no qualms about putting the container in the microwave to re-heat it for a late-night snack. Anyone that knows me knows I will not use ANY plastic to re-heat any food, ever!
I enjoyed the experience so much that I am reading an excerpt from “Immortal Enemies” my Sexy-Sci-Fi book, March 18th. This is the book that my Daughter edited and said, “Reading about sex that her Mother wrote, she had to read it with her eyes closed!” BTW the “readings” are only 10 minutes long and start a 6:00. Come early and stay late for music and fun. It is a chance to meet new and experienced authors. I am a newbie author. My first book was self-published in 2016. Since then, I have self-published 12 books, Sci-Fi, Mystery, and Young Adult. I will have several Immortal Enemies books available for purchase and will be happy to sign them.
