Images, Laughs, and Stories from the Book Signings

The book signings started on Thursday September 10th, and I think I accomplished what I set out to do - give people a different experience at each location while introducing them to some of my favorite people & places.

Not only did people share great stories of what they loved or remembered about the magazines, but we even made history when the head of Orby was reunited with Jerry Vile.

I also have to say the kindness of members of the magazine staffs have been nothing short of amazing. Many have had kind things to say about the book, One staffer even gave me some one of a kind memorabilia with Orby head pins and an ultra-special unworn, limited edition Orbit t-shirt (turquoise on black).

It's just been an honor to share the book with everyone. Thank you, if you came out.

Here's a look at the events:

Four Years to Today - THE BOOK IS HERE!

"Re-Entry" has landed!

Today is the day - September 1st, 2015 - the release date for "The Orbit Magazine Anthology".

Thank you for interviewing with me, for giving me leads, for giving me your hard earned money during the Patronicity fundraiser, for being supportive of the project, friends, and family, because you all have made this day possible. It's been a great honor to tell this story, one that's been in my mind for many years and took four years to complete. Thank you for making my first book possible.
