On November 13th, we participated at the 29th Annual Holiday Fair at the Thornton’s Ferry School in Merrimack, NH. We had an incredible turn-out for this event! Our special thanks to Eve, who bought 2 books from us at this event last year and bought 2 more this year. And to Margaret, who just met us at this event and bought 4 books! To everyone who came out to this bodacious event. And to Mary for inviting us back this year.

On November 18th I am guest speaker at the Bedford Women’s Club. This is an honor I am looking forward to!

And on November 20th, we participate at the 33rd Annual Yuletide Fair at the Co-operative Middle School in Stratham, NH. This has been the biggest single event for us for many years. Come on out and see.

Then, I actually get a week off for Thanksgiving!

Yesterday, Saturday, November 21, 2009 we were signing books at the Co-operative Middle School, Stratham, NH. This was the third consecutive year for us at this venue. I don’t know how many people attended this event, but I know Sal and I spoke with over 300 people during the day; at least that’s how many bookmarks we handed out. We sold a record number of books at this event! Our thanks to Katie and all those from the Exeter Area GFWC for running this event.

There is no way I can name all who purchased books at this event, but I will post a few pictures below and mention a few names. Carol, Marny, Deb, Lucas, Carla and Cathy from Stratham; Denise, Marita, Cece and Sandra (with the incredible Scottish sweater) from Exeter, Pauline from Rochester and Cheryl and Carlene from Kensington; Sally from Manchester; Jocelyn and Patricia from Portsmouth; Sharon from Newmarket; Candace from Epping. Sincere thanks to all of you and the many more for your support.

My number one returning reader and fan of the day goes without doubt to Karl from Warwick, RI. Karl read three of my books in the last year and purchased three others at this event. Sales are important, but Karl’s words were worth more than all the sales of the day! Nothing means more than to hear from an enthusiastic reader. Karl you made my day!!! Thank you so much.

Here I am with Karl and Kim (11/21/09)

From 9:00am to 3:00pm today I will be signing books at the 32nd Annual Yuletide Fair, at the Stratham, NH Co-operative Middle School; sponsored by the Exeter Area GFWC. This organization does a lot of good for the Exeter area, please come out and shop until you drop!

This coming Saturday, November 21, 2009 I will be signing books at the 32nd Annual Yuletide Fair, at the Stratham, NH Co-operative Middle School. This will be the third consecutive year we have participated in this event. It is one of the biggest Annual Fair we have ever seen.

This event is sponsored by the Exeter Area GFWC, which is part of the national General Federation of Women’s Clubs. They are one of the world’s largest and oldest women’s volunteer community service organizations with approximately 4,500 clubs in 50 state federations, plus Puerto Rico. Founded in 1890, GFWC is headquartered in Washington, D.C.

The Exeter Area GFWC does much for the community and we are proud to participate at this event. We sincerely hope that Saturday you can come over and see the incredible selection of gift ideas available under one roof.
