“Vera Wildauer and Kathie Hightower, co-founders and hosts of the Manzanita Writers’ Series, really roll out the red carpet when an author comes to town. Their panache and flair for detail were in evidence from my first contact with them, and continued beyond the event itself. Publicity and book sales, (provided by Manzanita’s own Cloud and Leaf Books) were handled in a professional and timely manner. Accommodations were provided at a modest little motel within walking distance of the beach. My well-attended reading was enthusiastically emceed by the hosts at the intimate Hoffman Arts Center. A wine and chocolate bash topped off the evening.Authors, if you have a new book to promote, I would highly recommend contacting the Manzanita Writers’ Series. You won’t be disappointed.”
