The Book Is Here!

OK. I ADMIT it. It's kinda cool to see my name on the cover of a book.

Rock N Roll Shorts arrived today and it's a great feeling. We have copies at Second String Music and down the block at Great Debate Books. I'll be doing a book signing Saturday, Oct. 27, at Great Debate from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The book has seven short stories, all music related, and sells for $5.99.

No way this would have happened without the support and guidance of my awesome wife, Sheryl. I'm looking at the front cover right now as LuckyCat Vegas sits and purrs on my lap and I'm thinking life is pretty darned good.

And I'm thinking of my late mother, an English teacher who dreamed of writing books. The Christmas before she died she wrote a short story for each of her grandchildren, and we published them in book form. She was beyond thrilled and now I know what she was feeling.

My grandfather, Henry Coray, also wrote several books. Son of Tears is still a respected and used story about St. Augustine. More here on Grandpa Coray's books. He led a very interesting life.

Wow. Published. In Print. A book with covers. GUH.
