Happy Memorial Day…Thanks For Your Service

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:

Literary TrooperThis actually happened…

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!

    • No worries, Sally! I’m sorry I didn’t get the chance to meet and thank you in person, but I completely understand conference hangover! Hope you met some superstar authors!!

      PS – if you have the time and inclination to drive all the way up to Dahlonega, I’m hosting another event on 6/8 as part of our 2nd Sat Gallery Walk event. (*big grin*) No pressure. Just want you to know you are welcome.

      • and I’ll be at another conference in Chicago.

        I’m just going to have to break down and buy the book online–I wanted to buy it in person.
