As you can see, my two special guest stars made this such a fun event. I cannot thank them enough!!
As it turns out, in addition to Chewie, one of the boys in white was able to attend my book launch event. Here he is with my book:
A Vietnam veteran and his wife spotted the Stormtrooper’s glossy white personage, not to mention the seven-foot-tall fuzzball in his custody, while driving by the coffee house and rushed in for some photos. I overheard our disconcertingly friendly Stormtrooper (in appropriate comlink voice effects that make him sound EXACTLY like the troopers in the movies) say, “Thank you for your service” to the veteran. And this big, gray-haired veteran with a smile from ear-to-ear replied, “And thank you for your service. You’ve made my day!”
Teared me up! So I’m posting this to say Happy Memorial Day to everyone, but most especially to ALL of our veterans, and may the Force be with you…always.
NOTE: There are many more fun photos of the event, including plenty of Chewie and yours truly. I will post them all over – here, Goodreads, Amazon, Facebook, etc – very soon. However, we’re going to take a day to unplug and go hiking. Have a safe, fun and refreshing weekend!
Sometimes giving in to the dark side can be delicious….These luscious Dark Vader chocolates will be one of the possible “gift with purchase” options at my Book Launch event tomorrow evening at Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee in Roswell, GA. Which is convenient. Because these dark Sith lords taste even more dark and delicious with an Iced Toddy or Vanilla Chai Freeze.
The address is 352 South Atlanta Street, Roswell, GA 30075
Today will be a day long remembered…it has seen my beloved book officially released into the big, wide world AND we are being featured on Faster Than Kudzu – the blog of NYT bestselling novelist Joshilyn Jackson. Joshilyn is one of my most favorite authors and I’ve been following FTK blog for years, so this is VERY exciting for me.

“People are still asking me if I knew Star Wars was going to be that big of a hit. Yes, we all knew. The only one who didn’t know was George.”
