This is such a sweet day for me. Wacoans, I finally get to celebrate my I'd Rather Be Short journey with you. Some of you already know this, but I had the idea and created the whole book while I living there. It's my Texas hometown and I'm honored I got to spend a couple of years as a bonafide Wacoan. The support from my friends, folks at Hole in the Roof, UBC, etc. has been overwhelming and this is definitely a night to celebrate. Better yet, it's at my favorite place in town.
Please join me tonight at the Dancing Bear Pub for an I'd Rather Be Short book signing at 7 PM. I will give you the scoop on why I started this project as well as my creative process behind it. I'll also share some insider info, like why page 19 has as a subtle pair of pastel plaid L.E.I. shorts and why Shaq got a page but Judy Garland didn't.
Barnes & Noble will be selling books there, so don't worry about buying ahead of time. Just come as you are and we'll share laughs over a pint. I'm looking forward to seeing you this evening!
P.S. I have an interview at 4:00 with Emily at KWTX. Wish me luck! Links to come if I think my hair looked good. Here's a link to a nice article about it on the Waco Trib.
