Dateline: Atlanta, May 25

An event last night at Hastings Entertainment in Denton, Texas. Someone at my publisher must have thought Denton was a suburb of Dallas – instead of a 45-minute drive away.

Anyway, I got to meet a number of longtime, loyal readers, including Paul, who’s managed to buy first editions of ever book I’ve published, and Marcia, who lived in New Orleans and lost her house in Katrina. In fact, she lost everything she had. She’s since moved to a town near Denton, Texas.

When it came time for the NEC plasma TV drawing, I pulled out the winning entry – and of all people, it was Marcia who won. What a great karmic twist that was. Made the 45-minute drive worth it.
