Baja Authors Booksigning and Winetasting

The annual Baja authors booksigning and winetasting is a great event in a spectacular setting on a 150' bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It's hosted by the Pyramid Resort on their deck, with an average of 15 authors of books about or set in Baja. They also include several Baja wineries.

I'm a paraglider pilot as well as a Mystery Author, and last year the winds allowed me to launch on the bluff nearby and soar over the other authors and guests during the booksigning event. A photographer for the Gringo Gazette took the picture of me flying, on the right, and it later appeared in their English language newspaper.Sometimes promoting our books is a real chore, but this was one time I was thrilled to do it.

This year the Baja Authors Booksigning will be held on Saturday, May 3rd. I'll be there with my new Mystery, and if the winds are right I'll launch and fly with the pelicans, soaring above the event once again. I hope to see you there. Just look up.
