In my writing group, I am the undisputed queen of selfies. I don’t have any particular skill at photography, but I love to document my experiences through pictures. When I received my ARCs (advance reading copies) of Karma Patrol, it was clear to me that I needed to take a metric ton of pictures with them. But where?
I grabbed my iPhone, my ARCs, and my sorority sister, and headed for my home away from home.
As far as I can tell, Disney World and Manhattan have exactly two things in common. One: fantastic restaurants.
Two: You can walk around using a book as a prop in pictures and no one will say anything to you about it.
Not a word.
Not even when they’re dying to ask.
Unlike random strangers on the subway, though, when you tell Disney cast members about your novel, they’re incredibly supportive.
It turns out Disney Princesses love to read books about soulmates and true love!
A couple of the boys got in on the action. Kylo Ren was sort of emo about the whole thing, but he’s emo about everything, so no surprises there. Beast loves fairytales!
I read the happy parts to the lion and the sad parts to the gargoyle. They laughed AND they cried!
Jawas apparently aren’t big readers.
But Stormtroopers, like Stitch, are always up for a good read.
At the end of an awesome Disney weekend, there’s nothing like settling down in Gaston’s Tavern with your favorite book!
