I just received an email. Actually, it was a message sent from my email form found on my website http://www.sandra-lopez.com/.
It was invitation to the Festival of Books......in Tucson, AZ!
Wow! I've never been invited out of state before. Usually, I just do signings and panels in So Cal, since I really don't have a travel expense, and I usually don't get compensated for my appearances.
Actually, I've been getting more and more honorariums for my appearances lately. I got a few dollars just in the last two alone! Not bad, eh?
I'm glad that I'm finally starting to get paid for these gigs. And I'm hoping that it will take me out of my general vicinity and out there somewhere--somewhere I've never been before.
Maybe Tucson will be my first stop.
Anyways, I was just stoked.
Details are still being worked out for the Tucson Festival of Books, which will take place at the University of Arizona, March 12-13 2011.
