On Friday, February 3, I attended the 46th annual Local Author’s Night festivities for local authors in San Diego. There was a jazz trio, hors d’oeuvres and a host of attendees, most of whom I had no idea who they were. The only requirement for this was to have had a book published in 2011, either through a publishing house or self-published. I went because of my series of books on political cartoons, but next year, I will have had two books published in the qualifying year, 2012, and will be very excited to attend brandishing my Sherlock Holmes novel.
