HOLLYWOOD COLLECTORS SHOW PART II
The highlight of the show for me on Sat. was finally meeting former 60s starlet Quinn O’Hara in person. We’ve talked by phone and by email for years but had never met before. She looked fabulous and was just so wonderful and sweet and even signed copies of Drive-in Dream Girls for customers who bought the book. We then went over and chatted with Celeste Yarnall and Deanna Lund of Land of the Giants who was so gracious. She really is a “living doll in giant land.” Being a huge fan of hers for years, I bought an autographed photo. The only celebrity I purchased one from. Both Celeste and Deanna encouraged Quinn to attend a future show as a guest, which she will do.
Show ended with me selling about 25 books–not bad but not great. Even so I had a wonderful time with Adam Phillips from McFarland and made some good contacts. All in all I’d say it was a success. Will have some pictures to post when I return to NY.
