Countdown to Launch!

I'm back from San Francisco, where the book was received VERY warmly! If you want to read about the conference (which was stellar), please follow this link.

The launch I'm talking about is the book launch. I’ve just gotten confirmation that my book will have its official launch on Monday, April 14. Please – if your schedule allows it, join me at CCC for this event. (C'mon, you know your taxes will be done by then!) The shindig will begin at 7 p.m. in the Keeter Auditorium where I’ll talk a little bit about the project and why popular culture is worthy of serious examination in the first place. I’ll discuss a bit from the book - and where else can you go to talk about vampires on a Monday night in Shelby? Also, a reception will follow. Hopefully, strawberries will be involved for any Kaylee fans out there and it is my sincere hope that no malevolent Chumash spirits will crash the party.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase and, if you ask nicely, I’ll sign your purchase. Heck, I’ll do that if you ask harshly! But please take Giles’ advice and do not speak Latin in front of the books.

Again, mark your calendars! Monday, April 14 at 7 p.m. in the Keeter Auditorium at CCC. Tell your friends and better yet, bring them along!

I will deffintly try to come and not just to see stacked librarian in bells. I'm enjoying your book very much by the way one of my favorite lines so far is when you say that while Mal may not be an island he should at least be considered an isthmus. BTW I've rented and watched Firefly and Serenity sense I started reading your book. I enjoyed it, I hate the show got cancelled and I hate the way they offed Wash, and I'm still singing the theme song.

And thus another convert is born!!

Thanks for the warm fuzzies! I'd love to see your friendly face in the audience, if that works out for you! I'll even set aside a plump strawberry just for you.
