I am heading for Molokai, the most Hawaiian of the Islands, to hike into the sacred Halawa Valley. From there I will head for the Big Island for a Healing Hawaiian Holiday. Low airfares and discounted travel packages make a pefect excuse to re-visit the birthplace of my. novel, Wai-nani, High Chiefess of Hawaii.

Linda & Wai-nani at the L.A. Times Book Fest 2009

On a lovely spring day in Southern California at the UCLAc Campus, I shared Wai-nani with thousands of visitors to the Los Angeles Times Book Festival 2009. I also let people know that they can go to my site www.LindaBallouAuthor.com for a free download on How to Make Travel Writing Work for You.

Carolyn Howard Johnson, author of Frugal Book Promoter, organzied the Author Co-op booth that was shared by a dozen California authors. New friends were made, books were sold, and good time was had by all.
