Last Sunday I had the pleasure of reading an excerpt from my book, Imogene and the Case of the Missing Pearls, at a wonderful bookstore in Walnut Creek. Swan's Fine Books, owned by Laurelle Swan, is located in a small shopping center at 1381 Locust Street, Walnut Creek. You can learn more about this fabulous bookstore at her website HERE. Let me just say "fine" is an accurate word to describe this shop. There is a treasure trove of rare and fine books, early editions, signed editions. Many are expensive, as you would guess, but many are also quite affordable for those on a more limited budget.

First, Laurelle introduced me. And then I talked about the background to my book, and then read the excerpt mentioned in the picture above.
|Dear family friends.|
One of the great pleasures of bookstore signings is the opportunity to get together with a lot of book-loving friends.
Another pleasure is the opportunity to browse books before and after. So I was in book heaven in more ways than one.

And of course, it's always fun to sign those books!
