Please Come Hear Me Read

I will be at Stacey's Books on Market Street in San Francisco at 12:30 on Tuesday Nov. 18.

I will be at the Mechanic's Institute on Post Street near Market at 6 pm on Tuesday Nov. 18. (I will give a power point presentation)

I will be at the California Historical Society at 6 pm on Wednesday Nov. 19 at 6 pm. This is where Hellman's documents are stored and the Historical Society is planning to display some of his original letters. There is also an amazing oil portrait of him from 1899 that will be on display.

Then I am off to LA. I will be at the Huntington Library in San Marino at 7:30 pm on Friday Nov. 21.

The next day I will be at Hellman's old rancho -- the one he acquired in 1881 -- at 10:30 am on Saturday Nov. 22. It's called Rancho Los Alamitos and it is located near Long Beach.

More details here.

Towers of Gold is doing really well considering it has been out for less than a week. After I appeared on John Rothmann's 1 am show on KGO 810 on Sunday, the book shot up ion Amazon. It has pretty much sat there since. Here were the rankings for Nov. 16:

Nebulosityou Frances! All your hard graft is paying off.

That's interesting. Your comment preview must do an automatic spellcheck. My previous comment was meant to start with my (admittedly made-up) word, Fabuloso. Instead we have a weird mash up of nebulous. Keeping language alive perhaps?
