Indie Addict Signing - Los Angeles 2017
In June and July of 2017, I was able to attend the first Indie Addicts Book Signing in LA. The conference was hosted by Author CK Green & Kingston Publishing on July 1 at the Hyatt Regency LAX in Los Angeles. There were more than 55 signing authors in attendance, and I had a wonderful time getting to know them all and networking with them. The room stayed packed most of the day, and I got to talk to so many readers throughout the day. The signing was a class act all the way--along with the hotel and many other places I visited during my time there. Getting to meet fellow author, Lynn Lamb, and seeing my friend Laura Daleo again were added bonuses. I chose to make the 3-day drive there and back, as I am terrified of flying and completely enjoyed spending time with all of the authors and my friends. Please, enjoy my videos and pictures from the trip below.
I love to go to signings in costume. It makes it more fun for both me and the readers!

A Little Bit About the Hotels - I always like to know if a hotel or restaurant is worth my time and money, so I always review. You can find all my travel reviews on TripAdvisor & Yelp:
A very nice room with soft, dark ambience
And that desk was huge--nice workstation
Was a little hard for my liking. I need a softer mattress or my hips hurt and I toss, but it was still a nice bed.
was the pool and hot tub downstairs and having room service after a very long drive while watching some Masterchef Junior
Having Starbucks coffee was divine
so I put a half and half carton in the ice bucket
I LOVED this room
was much softer. I really slept well.
Big enough to be very comfortable in
And having the fridge made keeping cream easy. The ingredients in whitener are GMO and lethal! lol
Walking back from dinner at Applebee's. It was conveniently, and literally, right around the corner
I met the sweetest couple here! They were so nervous I was driving cross country alone (they don't know me very well...hehe
for Mom's return
for the babies
Love the palm trees
Salad at Outback
Yes, that is a baked sweet potato
Top of Tatsu's hill
of the entire trip
bite; it bled so much!
off in the distance?
Those rock walls dwarfed the cars as you can see.
VERY painful but still cool ride
& the rental car waits patiently
I told Lynn to pose and this random stranger stopped & posed with her to be funny. We loved it!
I had gluten free tempura for the first time in years!
So sad to drop Lynn off
But I'll brave it for these coasters!
Hope to see you again soon
Yes there is an airport sign app for iPhone
At Venice Beach before the tattoo...possibly after...lol
I always pick up his paw and say, "Paw Paw!"
