Dreaming It And Doing It

Dreaming It And Doing It

*EDITED to include new dates and info regarding the book tour


From actress to geek fashion boss lady, Ashley Eckstein (founder of Her Universe) can now add published author to her long list of accomplishments. Her new book entitled "It's Your Universe" tells her story of growing up in the shadow of Disney World and finding her path to voicing Ahsoka Tano and creating Her Universe. This book is for all ages and will offer inspirational passages as well as Eckstein's own personal stories, accompanied by illustrations by artist Ashley Taylor. "It's Your Universe" will be available May 8th, and you can pre-order your copy here.

For anyone who's attending her book signing, there'll be a limited edition Ahsoka Tano pin given out. Amount is limited and rules and distribution will vary at different events so if you really want this pin, show up early.

As a fan of Her Universe, I'm beyond thrilled for Ashley. I'm so interested in her story about how she got started in voiceover acting and what it took to create Her Universe. She is the prime example of "Dreaming it and doing it". I will be picking up my own copy of the book as well as stopping by her signing.

Eckstein will soon embark on a book tour, traveling to various parts of the United States and Canada. Take a look at the schedule below or the full schedule here
