What Do You Say To Your Hero?

Tomorrow is a very important day. Without resorting to hyperbole, it might be my most important day yet as a writer.

I’m attending a convention at which my hero Dwight Schultz is a guest. In case anyone has been holidaying on Pluto for the past year or so, he’s the guy who used to play Murdock on The A-Team. He’s now a political commentator and one hell of a smart guy. I have a lot of admiration for him.

And tomorrow I’ll be meeting him face to face. Hopefully, if I’m brave enough, I’ll be able to ask him the question that’s been weighing on my mind for the last year or so:

“I’d be honored if you would write a short preface for my book once it’s published.”

Of course that’s a leap. It’s not just a leap. It’s the Grand Canyon of leaps. It’s scary. But you know what? I’m gonna do it anyway. The worst thing that happen is I get a polite “no” and I get to chat with someone I really admire.

Wish me luck, P&Q Rangers…I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes!
