In less than two hours’ time, Wayne Thomas Batson and I will leave our respective residences and set off with much excitement and glee, converging on historic Scranton, PA, the midway point between our homes in NY and MD. This weekend marks our third annual Writer’s Boot Camp, a time where we escape to focus on one of our many mutual loves: writing the epic novel.

And historic Scranton, you say? Well, historic for the fact that one of my favorite shows is set there, The Office. But historic also for its role in the Industrial Revolution. And this is clearly scene in the amazing hotel that has helped sponsor this weekend’s trip, as well as tomorrow’s book signing at The Banshee: Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel. Formerly a sprawling railroad station of epic proportions, it is now an elegant hotel that draws upon its legendary roots to awe its patrons…Wayne and I being two of them (awed patrons that is, not legendary roots).

So if you’re ever in the area, make sue to stay a night at the beautiful Lackawanna Station Hotel. And if you’re in town tomorrow, please come have lunch with us at The Banshee from 12noon-2:00pm!  ch:

Oh come now Sir Christopher, we know that you and Sir Wayne are the legendary roots to awe its patrons.

You must not disparage yourself. I mean where else can one find a crazy, bald, white guy having a sword fight with a long haired pirate dude and then writing a book together afterwards.

It’s legendary! It’s awe inspiring! It’s… Oh… Guess I’m getting carried away a bit… Sorry.
