Yesterday was a big day in the life of the small town I call home! Toccoa celebrated the debut novel of author Jeffrey Stepakoff, Fireworks Over Toccoa. He is a professor of creative writing at Kennesaw State University and has written for more than a dozen different television series. This is debut novel with the setting being the town I love so dearly.
This is fictional novel using real places. It's a story of love. Here is a quote from the front jacket of the book:
Every so often a story comes along that reminds us of what it's like to experience love for the first time--against the odds, when you least expect it, and with such passion that it completely changes you forever.
Now I can't say how great (or bad) the book is. But as I waited, along with the rest of Toccoa/Stephens County, buy my copy of Fireworks Over Toccoa and to get my book signed by the author, I heard nothing but great things about this book. I can't wait to get started reading it! Try it for yourself! I'll post my review as soon as I finish reading!
