I just returned from giving a talk to attendees at the California Writers Club’s Sacramento branch and was amazed by all the Arden references in the state’s capitol. Any one know why Arden ranks as a popular name choice? I traveled on Arden-Garden Blvd. to Arden Way and passed the Arden Fair shopping mall. There’s also Arden Arcade, Sacramento Arden Hotel, Arden Village, Arden Park Florist and Arden Hills Resort – whew! If you like to write, I encourage you to join the CWC’s Sacramento branch. Nice group of people! Learn more by visiting www.sacramento-writers.org.
After giving a talk entitled, “Surviving and Thriving as a Pet Author in this Crazy Social Media World,” I signed books at the Barnes & Noble store in Citrus Heights and donated signed copies of my Dog Behavior Answer Book and Cat Behavior Answer Book to the volunteers from the Sacramento SPCA who had a booth out front. They brought some nice, well-mannered dogs up for adoption, including a real cutie named Charley!
