I have my first book signing tomorrow for my novel, GOODBYE, SATURDAY NIGHT. Now, I get to enter the ranks with those authors who have gone before me, who have taken pen in hand and wrote nice, personal passages to the fans of their work. I get to join the great ones, Maugham, Hemingway, Steinbeck, Faulkner, Capote, Lee, McMurtry, Warren, Reardon, and on and on. Life is good. That is a validation that can’t be diminished.
