The Midnight Elvis character is the only character inspired by a real person,
Norm Ackland. Norm is an ETA (Elvis Tribute Artist) who’s been performing
since 1968. I decided to use Norm’s alter ego because I thought it
would add character and personality to the restaurant scenes,
and as a tribute to my good friend. The alternate book cover featured below is a tribute to the Midnight Elvis restaurant and some of Norms family members. Please click on the link to view the
