Got invited to a SoMa Christmas Party at the Mint Mall in SF by Marie Romero, CEO of Arkipelago Books. Went there with my friend Annabel, but we were kinda late because it was traffic at night when I drove towards the peninsula area, maybe because of the rain. Picked up Anne and drove to SF. Saw some familiar faces and missed the lechon and the food! Darn! Its okay, I was full anyway. But the main purpose of the visit was to discuss something with Marie. She gave me a book on writing for children and caught up with the progress of my book. Overall, the meeting was productive.
