5/20/08: Signing in Milwaukee  
Word count: 6053 | Since last entry: 633

From left to right: kateyule, Dave the owner of the Safe House, my dad, me, my mom

We're in Milwaukee. Sold and signed 11 copies of Space Magic at Panther Books this afternoon, mostly to friends of my parents', followed by a wonderful dinner at Kincaid's. We're staying at the Art-Deco-styled Hotel Metro. Having a great time and looking forward to Wiscon in a few days.

I finished and submitted the story I'd been working on and I've been doing my novel crits for Wiscon. Once I finish those I must immediately begin work on another short story for Taos Toolbox, which is due June 1. I'm combining three of the suggestions I got (you'll have to wait to find out which ones) but it's going to be a challenge for me.

How Cool Is That!
Waving to Aunt Marilyn and Uncle Lenny -

Nice pic!

Kincaid's rocks. I used to go to the one in Burlingame several times a year when we lived in San Mateo.

Come to think of it, there's no reason we still can't go there.

Next time you and Kate are in town, we'll make that a reason to go. :)

I didn't know you had a connection to the Safe House! How cool is that. I have a VIO card (around here somewhere) but haven't been in years.

Turns out my mother co-wrote a book with the owner's wife. Small world!

Actually those are felafel, from the Greek place down the street.

I love the Safe House! My first time there was back in the '70s!

Look at you, all celebrity-like at your table! I'll have you sign my copy in Cleveland, assuming you'll be there... :-)
