Happy birthday, Elvis!

Happy birthday, Elvis Presley! We may not have known it on January 8, 1935, but the world would be forever changed by you and your gifts. Thanks for sharing you life and music with us. You live in our hearts forever, especially this author, whom you inspired to write Waking Up in Graceland, An Elvis Story.

January 8 also marks one year since we published this independent book. Thanks to the many family, friends and readers for your love and support. The sequel to Waking Up in Graceland should be underway later this month!

Now sing a round of Happy Birthday to the King of Rock & Roll…
