Jonetta, I'm pretty sure Erika and her mom meant SLO and SLC, for San Luis Obispo, CA, and Salt Lake City, Utah.
I have not spoken the full city names for those particular two places for as long as I can remember. It really is just SLO and SLC, at least in L.A! (And here's something amusing - SLO and SLC have no periods between letters, but L.A. does. Go figure!)
But I know a lot of residents of SLO and SLC, and they only use those acronyms, too. It must be a West Coast thing.
You know what, though, I could put in an internal remark by Roarke to EXPLAIN that abbreviation, so people who don't know won't get thrown off.
This is the MOST EXCELLENT thing about e publishing, that authors can actually correct their mistakes instead of having to live with them. So if anyone has other notes, even little ones, please send them my way. I'll compile them and send them to my formatter and upload a cleaner draft.
Erika, please tell your mom thank you from me - it really helps!
