I had my first official author talk/book signing event yesterday for my new memoir: Adventures with Dad: A Father and Daughter’s Journey Through a Senior Acting Class. I spoke to a creative writing class in Leisure World, a very large retirement community in Orange County, CA. Although I’ve given talks before about my book, I never had any books to sell and autograph until yesterday. It was just incredible! I never thought in my life that I’d be in such a role. The audience seemed very receptive to my presentation. Several people bought books. One woman said, “I just have to read this book!” That was real validation. I hope she likes it.
