Yesterday's dinner and reading was a lot of fun. We had a good turnout for the pre-reading meal, about 15 people. Here's the table full of us, on the McMenamin's patio:

Going clockwise from the lower left, I think I can capture all these names. [info]mlerules, Debra Stover, Janet Happe Lunde, Brian Hunt, Rachel Sinclair Hunt, the Niece, [info]tillyjane (a/k/a my mom), [info]martianmooncrab, Michelle Carlson, Jenna Miller, Stacey Hale Hankins, Jersey Girl in Portland, me, Lisa Costello. [info]delerium3 is taking the picture, and MtnSk8tr is out of the frame.

Also, [info]martianmooncrab gave me this fetching hat:

Which I wore through dinner and partway through the reading.

We had a pretty good turnout at Powell's. Peter Honingstock did his usual wonderful job of hosting. I tried to shoot some footage for Donnie Reynolds, which resulted in moderate hilarity around adjusting the field expedient camera stand. I spoke briefly about some of the things going on in my writing and personal life, read the very beginning of Kalimpura, then the calming-the-storm scene from the book's second section, took some Q&A, and a signed a bunch of titles. All in all, it was quite a good evening.

My thanks to everyone who turned up at dinner, and all the more so to everyone who made it to the reading.

I love the expression of the guy behind you while you're wearing the wild hat.

Good reading, ditto dinner.
