Last night's event with Marty Smith


Marty was stellar as usual. He's one of the kindest editors I've ever worked with. This cake sports an image of his third crime novel. He spoke at length about writing essays and what makes an essay work. And we had a full house--a sell-out, actually. Thanks to all who attended.

Wish I'd known about this, or perhaps the event was for invited guests only.

Not at all, Sonia. The event was posted here on the blog a couple of weeks ago, I sent to my mailing list, which you're on, it was in the OC Register, etc. etc. Sorry you missed it....

It was a great event and proves that a literary community lives in Orange County, even if it's a bit under the radar. I agree--Marty is a kind and insightful editor. He helped make me a better writer.
