Those of you who follow my comings, goings, blatherings, and scribblings likely know that the latest novel collaboration between Kevin Dilmore and myself, Star Trek: Seekers #2 – Point of Divergence, is scheduled to begin appearing on bookstore shelves later this month. With that in mind, a couple of local bookstores have sought us out in the hopes that we might darken their doors for a book signing.
The first one we can announce is set for Saturday, September 6th at 1pm, at the Barnes & Noble store in Oak Park Mall in picturesque Overland Park, Kansas. Our signing and Q&A session will be part of a larger event the store is hosting, celebrating the anniversary of the original Star Trek series premiere in 1966. Check it:
“Join authors Kevin Dilmore and Dayton Ward for a Q&A and signing for their new book, Star Trek: Seekers – Point of Divergence. Come celebrate the 48th anniversary of the first televised Star Trek episode with activities and events! Costumes welcome!”
We’ve also been reaching out to some of the local Star Trek clubs and fan groups, inviting them to come hang out. If that’s you and you’re looking for something to do that Saturday, then mark your calendars!
Programming Note: It’s entirely possible that my daughters will be with me this day. It’ll be Addy’s birthday, as it happens, and she’s expressed the desire to accompany us to this shindig, and to do so while wearing a “Lieutenant Uhura dress.” So, there.
Also, this store has the virtue of being directly across the street from one of my favorite places in town to eat, bd’s Mongolian Grill. So, you can guess what’ll be happening after the signing, right? What’s not to love about this deal?
We want to thank the Oak Park Mall B&N for inviting us into their realm, and in particular we thank Rebecca Relph, the store’s community relations manager, for organizing this little party. Here’s hoping you all come to see us!
