On Saturday, July 25, I’ll be (as the post title says) signing copies of Homefront at Books-a-Million in Clarksville, TN. Clarksville is the town bordering Hopkinsville, KY, which is the home of Fort Campbell, KY and the 101st Airborne Division.

Characters Jake and William, Apache pilots whose absence affects the lives and behavior of those they leave behind, are based on 101st pilots, although the 101st is never mentioned by name.

Clarksville, also unnamed, is the town around which Mia (Jake’s girlfriend) drives her old Ford taxi while waiting for Jake to make it back from Iraq.

(Incidentally, Clarksville is where I lived while waiting for Ian to make it back from Iraq. He was a 101st Airborne Chinook pilot.)

I’d love to participate in book signings in all possible stores, but there’s something very right about doing them in Clarksville.

The Clarksville, TN Books-a-Million is located at 125 South Hampton Place.

  1. It does indeed seem very right. I hope and expect you’ll get a good turnout!
