Things collide here.

It’s done: “Collect All 21! Memoirs of a Star Wars Geek – The First 30 Years”

Its roots go back to early 2007, but I can finally say my SECOND BOOK IS DONE!!! May I present "Collect All 21! Memoirs of a Star Wars Geek – The First 30 Years."

The past month or so has been an absolute workfest of the best kind: Digging up old photos and home movies, working on the cover,and several intense back-and-forth editing sessions with Adam, who really put his heart into bringing out some writing I feel good about.

Now, it’s time to set it free: Before opening it up to full distribution through Lulu.com, I’m offering an early-buyer pre-order discount and free U.S. shipping. Click here for the order page and more info.

Some of the best Star Wars-related times I’ve had as an adult have been just talking with other people who grew up in that era and remembering how we played with our Star Wars guys and where we saw the movies and who our friends were in elementary school and how much fun it was just to be a kid back in the late 1970s and into the 1980s. My hope is that this book sparks more of those trips down a hyperspace memory lane.

  1. I end up liking the cover in white! I really like the back! I think when I first saw it, it was white on a white page…now that’s it’s blocked off to size, I likey.
    If I can be so bold as to ask for the author’s signature, please dedicate my copy to “Kink” or “Kinky!”
