"How to love San Francisco - One year in the City by the Bay" - Our softlaunch event at Rocketspace

Dear San Francisco Fans!

Great things happened recently - last week we soft launched the indiegogo crowdfunding campaign at Rocketspace in San Francisco. What I mean by soft launching? We showed the video to everyone at the event and I gave an exclusive reading of chapter 1 and chapter 2.

That's what my friend Sophia from Rocketspace wrote about the event on their blog:

"The reception at RocketLabs, our 225 Bush St coworking location in San Francisco, was bustling with book lovers Wednesday evening, April 9th, as our very own Johanna Lehmann announced the soft launch of her very popular book, “How to Love San Francisco: One Year in the City by the Bay.” Johanna, aka author Hanni Bayers, regaled the crowd with her Indiegogo fundraising campaign video (featured below) as well as an exclusive live reading of the novel’s second chapter, introducing us to main character Hanni and explaining her book’s very unique structure. This hybrid travel guide and romantic novel follows Hanni’s adventures discovering San Francisco, its startup culture, and the intricacies of dating in America, each chapter followed by excursion details to special places and hidden spots in San Francisco.
This romantic novel meets travel guide, originally written in German, has been lauded far and wide: it’s one of the top 3 books on Amazon in Germany, a Top 3 at the Continuing Studies of Wisconsin, and was a semi-finalist at the Tucson Festival of Books. The author, Johanna Lehmann, was even selected one of the Top 50 non-fiction authors by LovelyBooks, Germany’s largest reading community!
You can support the English language translation through Johanna’s Indiegogo campaign, and download a chapter of the book for free on the Hanni Bayers website!"

Let me know what you think!

Love,
Johanna
