Los Angeles Times Festival of Books - Valerie Bertinelli
And lest we mystery types get confused on what really makes the book world go round these days, I'll close with a picture of Valerie Bertinelli
, whose book Losing It
has a sales rank of 226 on Amazon as I write this. I found her by following the longest line of people waiting for an author signing that I saw at the festival. When I got there, there were about ten other photographers jockeying to get her picture. I didn't know who she was or what she written, but I figured--what the hey--I better get in on the action. Not too bad a pic for an amateur, eh?
