GRIZZLY SEASON LAUNCH FOR S.W. LAUDEN AT BOOK SHOW – A SUCCESS!

What a fantastic launch party! There were readings from yours truly, the always entertaining Danny Gardner, and of course, the star of the show himself, S. W. Lauden with the launch of his second Greg Salem book GRIZZLY SEASON by Rare Bird Books. Then we were entertained with an acoustic set from the talented Jeff Whalen of the band Tsar (which Steve plays drums for). Thanks to Steve and Book Show for throwing such a fabulous shindig.

PICTURES FROM FINN BOOK CELEBRATION PARTY

My FINN “celebration” party (I don’t call it a launch since the book has been out already for a month) was last Sunday at the Baleen Kitchen in Redondo Beach near the marina. It was a fantastic party and I am so touched by all the friends and family who showed up to help me celebrate. We also lucked out with great weather and the sun broke through the June gloom just in time for my party. There was plenty of drinks, food, and CAKE. And of course, books!

I wanted to hold the party at Baleen Kitchen because that served as my inspiration while writing FINN. I renamed the hotel / restaurant the Waterfront Grill and Hotel in the book and this is what I envisioned as Finn’s workplace. It’s the perfect location as it overlooks King Harbor (where Porter’s boat is docked).
