Notes & Images from San Francisco

This post is mostly going to be just images since we are rushing out the (hotel) door to meet up with Greg’s brother for the day. Although I have a couple more events and readings coming up, this is the last official stop on my book tour and I’m a little sad! Despite being hugely pregnant and toting my small family around with me, I feel like I could keep doing this for weeks. There are so many more cities I’d like to visit and readers I’d like to meet. The experiences I’ve had in the last seven weeks of this tour have just been so meaningful and surprising and wonderful and it’s terribly bittersweet to see it all come to an end.

In any case, here’s a round up of SF so far:

On Tuesday I had the pleasure of reading at Books Inc. in Palo Alto.

Greg’s younger brother Brad, and his favorite uncle Ron, both live in San Francisco and it was so fun to have them in the audience. The other most amazing person to have in the audience was my longest-standing blog reader Carroll, who has been a supporter of me since my first days of blogging 2003. We met for the first time on Tuesday and it just meant so much to me.

Yesterday, instead of touring around the city, which we’ve all already seen many times, we headed out to spend the day in the country with Brad & Ron.


You might think that there’s not much for a pregnant woman to do in Napa, but that’s not true at all! First stop was Thomas Keller’s bakery Bouchon for lunch supplies.

Next up was Indian Hot Springs Resort in Calistoga. It was, by far, the most relaxing day of my book tour.

I capped the night off with a sip of wine with my favorite blogger, Holly Burns. She’s just as charming as you would think.

Today we’ll run around the city and then I’m reading tonight at 7pm at Books Inc. in the city. Thanks to everyone who has been coming out to these readings and making everything so special along this fantastic journey.

Listen to a podcast of me on the Pen on Fire radio show.

Read an amazing review of Rules on The Faster Times.

Read another great review of Rules in New Zealand Women’s Weekly.

  1. I see you have taken to shortening the title of your book to “Rules”. As it has featured such a lot in your life of late and doubtless been mentioned endless times in conversation, I can understand the need for abbreviation. However there is scope for abuse. As the author, it is of course ‘Claire’s Rules’. You may go down in history as the one who wrote ‘The Rules’. And having found such public acceptance, you may accept ‘Claire Rules OK’. As you come down off the high of your book promotion tour and its million (deserved) ego strokes, I have no doubt you will be brought in for a soft landing by your very own, personal, compact, ever available reality checker…….. Vera.
    If you are ever in doubt about what is most important, consult the oracle.

  2. Ha…thanks Paul. Vera definitely keeps me in check. Not to mention that she has her very own set of Rules for me to follow.

  3. Meeting someone who has read your blog for a long time is a unique and charming experience. I’m so glad you were able to relax in the hot springs..pregnancy can be so exhausting, esp. when flying around like you are!
