Sal and I hope you had the Merriest Christmas, the Happiest Holidays, and that you all have the best year ever in 2011!

Sal and I are thankful to all of you who made 2010 the best business year ever for my books and made A Snowy Day Distribution & Publishing have an amazing first year in business!

This week we have a couple of book club events. One in a private residence and one at the Barnes & Noble Salem store, which has been incredible to us! Sincerest of thanks to Mary Ellen for her hosting us three times last year and for hosting the upcoming Windham Book Club event!

I’ve been working on a re-write of YESTERDAY, TOMMY GRAY DROWNED. It’s the only book not yet available on Nook and Kindle, because we lost the electronic copy several years back. And I couldn’t see just typing in the existing content, since I believe my writing style has grown in the ten years since it was written. When it’s done we will publish it for Kindle and Nook and also re-publish it in print through A Snowy Day Distribution & Publishing.

I have more going on, but will save it for another day. I will get more postings done in 2011 than the last half of 2010. At least that’s my plan!

Visit my blog at www.kspirito.wordpress.com for the first notice of anything happening with Sal and me.

Talk to you soon!

We were supposed to be at the Barnes & Noble Booksellers in Salem, NH From 1:00pm to 3:00pm on December 18, 2010, but we sold out in one hour!

Thanks to all who attended for making the Last Event of 2010 for Summer And August, A Cape Cod Murder Mystery an incredible success!

This was a bodacious way to end 2010! An amazing turn-out, for our third visit to the Barnes & Noble Booksellers, Salem, NH this year!

If you are still looking for autographed books for yourself, or as gifts this holiday season, and the store you visit is out please don’t hesitate to email me at http://www.kspirito.com and I will meet you with my books.

And remember, six of my books are available on Nook and Kindle!

We had an encore event at the Manchester, NH Barnes & Noble Booksellers this past Friday, December 10, 2010 and once again our fans were wonderful and supportive. Our thanks to Karen and Claire for hosting this event!

This coming Saturday, December 18, 2010 will be the last event for 2010. As incredible as the response to Summer And August has been I am truly humbled by our returning to the Barnes & Noble Booksellers in Salem, NH for our third time for Summer And August this Saturday! Sincere thanks to Mary Ellen for asking us back!

On a more serious note, all of the success for Summer And August has been wonderful, but overshadowed during the past couple of months because of the heartbreaking journey our four-year-old godchild, Beth, has been on.

Mid October, during a routine exam, Beth’s Doctor  found a suspicious enlargement in her abdomen.  A CT at CHAD four days later confirmed renal tumor and lesions on both lungs.  

After one operation and both Chemotherapy and Radiation treatments during the past two months, Beth now faces more surgery to remove lesions on her lungs. Please keep Beth in your thoughts and prayers.

On November 18th, Sal and I were guests at the Bedford Women’s Club, Bedford, NH. We spoke to around seventy-five members about our novels and about A Snowy Day Distribution & Publishing. We had a wonderful time and I believe our visit was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

The Bedford Women’s Club was founded in 1905 as the Child Study Circle and has since served in the interest of community charities. In the early 1940s a scholarship committee was initiated and in 1949 the name was changed to the Bedford Women’s Club (BWC).

Today they enjoy a long history of many delightful women offering their time, talents, and energy toward the continuation of the organization and to benefit the Bedford, NH community.  

Here is a picture, left to right, of Terry, me, Sal & Jackie.

Here are a couple of additional pictures of all the bodacious BWC members.

Our sincere thanks to the Bedford Women’s Club for having us, and especially to Terry and Jackie for asking us to participate and making us feel at home!
