Losing the Plot in LA
Author Sonia Farnsworth invites us inside the launch party for her debut novel, Losing the Plot in LA, at famed restaurant El Coyote.
My book was finally published 25 years after I started writing it! I was so excited that I couldn’t wait to have my launch party at the place that started it all….El Coyote in West Hollywood. El Coyote is my favorite hangout of all time and so much of my book happens there, so I HAD to have my party there AND put them on the cover. It’s a very well-known restaurant in LA. Their claim to fame is that it’s where Sharon Tate had her last meal…hmmmmm, not sure what to say about that. And it’s been around since the 1930s. They were so wonderful and accommodating, they’re actually selling Losing the Plot in LA.
One of the most embarrassing incidents of the day was spacing out on the owner’s name while I was signing her book. DUH! I’ve known her for years! The coup de grace was when I tripped over my book stand, knocking a guy and his girlfriend down as their quesadilla flew across the room hitting someone in the head. But hey, I’m a clumsy dork so not too surprising. I tend to lose the plot daily! It was a fantastic time!
Sonia Farnsworth was born and raised in Southern California, living most of her life in Hollywood. Her mother was French, so as a result, her summers were happily spent traveling between Paris and Cannes. She eventually developed a love for all things European and returned to live in London as a young adult. Losing the Plot in LA is Sonia’s first novel. She currently lives by the sea in San Clemente, California with her rescue dog, Holly, and is working on her second novel.
