Sacrificial Lambs Launch Celebration
Thursday, Sept. 19 from 6-8 p.m.
Rare Olde Times, Richmond, Virginia


(that's French for "lemme know if you want me to save you a beer"):

I hope you can come. If you think you will attend, please drop me a note and I'll know to expect you. If you can't and you'd like to let me know, feel free to shoot me an email.

See below for the deets (that's what old people say when they want to sound hep). Thanks!

Twenty years.

TWENTY damn years...

...of writing and editing my satirical-thriller about politics, the media, televangelism and society in general, set mainly in our beautiful city of RVA. And… then... revising (hello cell phones!), and revising (hello Twitter!), and revising (hello surveillance state!), and not revising (oh hell no… )…

Sacrificial Lambs is done and out in the world! 

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for a drink. In fact, I’m ready to buy you a drink!

It’s time for a Sacrificial Lambs launch celebration!

MANY of you gave me advice and input along the way (thank you), and have already bought Sacrificial Lambs (thank you!), and have read Sacrificial Lambs and said supportive things about it (THANK YOU), and have recommended Sacrificial Lambs to your friends (THANK YOU!), and have written nice Amazon reviews for Sacrificial Lambs (THANK YOU!!!).

To thank you, I’d like to invite you to my Sacrificial Lambs launch celebration!

When: Thursday, Sept. 19 from 6-8 p.m. (and who knows, maybe we hang out a little longer…)

Where: Rare Olde Times, 10602 Patterson Ave, Henrico, VA 23238


  • Let’s raise a glass and celebrate together – first drink is on me!

  • We’ll have a short reading(😬) around 6:45 p.m.

  • Yes, we’ll have some books on hand for sale, but that’s not the point – the point is to celebrate!

  • I’ll even sign books… Stephen King, Herman Wouk, Herman Melville… I’ll sign whatever name you like…

Y’all have always been so supportive of my writing, whether it was my three previous books, or my 20+ years of humor columns in lots of RVA and Virginia publications, such as (with some links to oldies-but-goodies) Family StyleHome Stylethe Chesterfield Observerboomerconnection.comRichmond Magazine,Richmond BrideWelcome Inc., WorkMagazine, and others. 

I have really, really appreciated your encouragement through the years. So I hope you can make it to the Sacrificial Lambs launch party on Sept. 19.

I owe you a beer. 



P.S. - There may be additional book-related buffoonery in the weeks after the launch celebration. I'd love to keep you informed, in case you want to buffoon along. To sign up for updates, go to my web site contact page and enter your email address.
