Hi,
I know I’ve been quiet for a while, but much has been going on.

I have been working with some authors through A Snowy Day Distribution & Publishing, so be sure to visit ASnowyDay.com to see some other books Sal & I have been publishing!

However, some of my “works in progress” are still progressing well, so keep checking in for notice of new books on the horizon. 🙂

When you read my previous Blog, LaRosa Chronicles, Connecting the Stories: Connection 1, Dated: 10/29/09, you learned that Father Sandro’s Money and Time Has A Way are loosely connected through Emma LaRosa. Emma and Julie are the main characters in Time Has A Way.

Then when you read the Blog, LaRosa Chronicles, Connecting the Stories – Connection 2 – Yesterday, Tommy Gray Drowned , Dated 11/03/09, you learned in Yesterday, Tommy Gray Drowned that Elizabeth, who is the main character is Julie’s mother.

So when you read the Blog, LaRosa Chronicles, Connecting the Stories – Connection 3 , Dated: 11/30/09, you found out that in The next book in the LaRosa Chronicles is Candy-colored Clown, the main characters are Julie and her husband Ken Waters.

Then recently you read my previous Blog, LaRosa Chronicles, Connecting the Stories – Connection 4 , Dated: 12/10/09, where youi learned that in the fifth book of the LaRosa Chronicles, Spiderling , a Suspense/Thriller, set in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Ken & Julie’s fifteen year old daughter is the main character, who goes off to an ecology camp and ends up as a Spiderling .

In Spiderling Ken & Julie’s fifteen year old daughter, Katrina meets Chas. As we start to read  PISCATAGUA Katrina and Chas are best friends, but Chas wants to be more than best friends. As much as convincing Katrina, Chas needs to believe in himself. Meanwhile, more evil looms in the aftermath of Granite Mountain and it takes aim at Katrina and Chas.

The seventh book in  the LaRosa Chronicles is set  in Chatham, MA, in Old Cape Cod. Summer And August is a Cape Cod Murder Mystery. Doctor Curt Shirlington has left his position in the CDC to settle down in a quiet family practice in Chatham. Unanticipated was the illness that required the Medical Examiner / Coroner to step down and have Curt be asked to temporarily fill in.

So goes Curt’s quiet when a murder victim is found in a dumpster in town. Curt has played a minor role in Time Has A Way and then again in Candy-colored Clown. He played an important role in Spiderling and again in PISCATAGUA, so he is a familiar character to most of my readers.

In  Summer And August Doctor Curt Shirlington teams up with someone introduced with an alias in Spiderling and who plays a role with his true identity in PISCATAGUA, now with the title Special Agent Robert Pomoroy.

That’s enough to get you going to the hyperlinked text and get you to read the first Chapter of  Summer And August.

The next connection weaves through a few books. In the next Connecting the Stories we’ll look at several characters who will be in Chatham, MA, in Old Cape Cod, living (or dying) through Summer And August .

There have been so many other things to talk about I haven’t provided an update on the progress of  Summer & August in a while.

Lisa, of www.BookInk.com, Editor-in-Chief and dear friend, has completed her review and edits, and as usual has provided valuable recommendations and insight. I am in process of implementing her recommendations. When this stage is complete we will have a Final Manuscript. But, my final-final process of ensuring satisfaction with the manuscript is narrating the Audio Book.

As I listen to the story I sometimes (always) make changes in every Chapter! (more like every page) It’s a nice final check for me. I will most likely record a chapter four or five days per week.  And subsequently make any changes in the Manuscript. That will put us into early February for being ready for publication. Making print and CD copies of Summer & August on schedule for May 2010 release.

PS
Sal’s 21 mile commute, that normally takes 30 minutes, took 1 hour 45 minutes, due to the storm that came through Wednesday morning. Do you have any “storm stories” you would like to share?

This coming Saturday we will be at a Holiday Craft Fair, located at Our Lady of the Cedars Church, on the corner of Calef Road and Mitchell Street in Manchester, NH from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

This event is sponsored by the Manchester Policemen’s Wives Scholarship Board. 100% of all funds raised from rentals, raffles and food sales will be utilized for post High School education scholarships for the sons and daughters of Manchester, NH Police Officers.

This is a great way for us to end our best year ever and we hope to continue to get a great turn-out at this venue.

PS
Saturday, after the Milford, NH Event we were at our son-in-law’s casino-themed birthday party.
His birthday is actually December 9 and we will post a picture of the party that day!

It has now been only two months now that  I have been Blogging daily (excluding a day here and there) and November has blown away the tremendous number of views I received in October. I am very grateful for the wonderful growth in readership. Sincere thanks to all of you for your support!!!

There is still plenty of time to get personalized books for holiday gifts. I promise that all of you who email me for autographed books for holiday gifts will receive them within a week of your orders!

Keep coming back and I’ll try to keep it interesting.
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Our Thanksgiving was great. We hope yours was too.

We had too much to eat, as planned. We visited and the children played.

Here I am with Sal Jr as he’s checking out the bird. He did a great job!

Here’s the guest of honor. He didn’t look like that for long.

Here’s Zoey enjoying our Thanksgiving toast. (The children toasted with sparkling cider so no one was left out of the toast)

We had a wonderful day!

Before each Thanksgiving Dinner we all hold hands around the table and each of us (usually 20 or more) say what we are thankful for. When you have all four of your children, each of their significant others and all eight grandchildren, plus any friends who are not able to be with their families on this day, in one room together that says it all!

Another wonderful thing to be thankful for happen yesterday; we re-connected with an exchange student from Japan who spent her senior year with us in 1986 and then returned to Japan. Candy is married, since 1990, to a U.S. Navy man she met in Japan, living with her husband and two children in San Diego. We hope to never lose touch again!

May all of you have something special to be thankful for this coming Thanksgiving Day!
