This weekend I had my first book signing event on a military base. The folks at Fairchild AFB were great to work with and as you can see I had a great location at the Base Exchange entrance.
Santa was also there just a few feet away.
This was the real deal. Turns out authors top his nice list! And Santa tops mine. Another author was doing a signing nearby. He told us that teenage his granddaughter had recently died in a horrible car accident. A scholarship fund had been established in her name. They wanted to have Santa attend the fundraiser, but were told he’d charge $100 per hour.
This Santa took the author’s card and said, “Let me know the day and time of next year’s event and I’ll be there. No charge.”
Now that’s the Christmas spirit.
Speaking of, books make great presents! Wrap up a copy of War Bonds today:-) Available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Independent booksellers nationwide.
1 thought on “Santa and War Bonds”
It truly was an amazing time. I am old enough to remember some of the war years and many who fought in it. Up until 2 years ago we had an annual reunion of Farragut vets but most if not all are gone now. Too bad you never had the opportunity to interview them.
