My first book signing for Incomplete Passes ... ready to go at The Reader's Loft in Bellevue, just outside of Green Bay, WI, on December 8, 2011. I brought some souvenirs of the '60s for customers to examine, including a program from the 1961 NFL title game and a notebook in which I wrote a story and collected Packer autographs in 1963.
At the Travelodge before the Packers-Raiders game on Sunday, December 11, 2011 ... This fellow Packer fan bought a copy and had her son snap a picture of us.
Second book signing trip took place in the spring of 2012. I was invited to participate in the Fox Cities Book Festival. My appearance took place on Saturday afternoon, April 14, at the Clubhouse in the Radisson Paper Valley Hotel in Appleton, WI. I was originally part of a three-person panel with fellow authors Chuck Carlson and Royce Boyles. Unfortunately, Mr. Carlson had to cancel. Royce Boyles is the co-author, with retired Packer player Dave Robinson, of The Lombardi Legacy and The Lombardi Impact.
He is in touch with most of the surviving players of the Lombardi era and has interviewed family members of those who have passed on. I was nervous at the beginning of the presentation, since I hadn't done one with another author before. However, I enjoyed Royce's stories so much that I told him I could listen to him all night. Of course, I was able to add a few memories of my own!
