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!

Wow! It’s now less than two months that  I have been Blogging daily (excluding a day here and there) and I continue to be grateful for the wonderful growth in readership. Sincere thanks to all of you for your support!!!

There are still six days remaining in November and you’ve blown away the remarkable number of “views” I received in October. November has given us three awesome events and birthday parties for four of our eight grandchildren!
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Debra Lawless, reporter for the Cape Cod Chronicle and a wonderful friend, has a stupendous book, Chatham in the Jazz Age,  published in 2009 by History Press.

Debra investigates five prominent residents of Chatham, MA (Cape Cod) –  Harold C. Dunbar, Alice Walker Guild, Heman Andrew Harding, Joseph C. Lincoln and Alice Stallknecht Wight – and reveals their contribution to putting Chatham on the map as a national tourist destination. She also uncovers some secrets of this supposed Eden. It’s a truly great read!

Debra is working on the sequel to Chatham in the Jazz Age,  and says it’s going well. I personally can’t wait!

If you are familiar with LaRosa Chronicles and know of my next book, Summer And August, you will see Debra investigating a murder in Chatham.

Here I am with Debra, in the lounge of the Cranberry Inn, in Chatham, discussing her character. (05/23/09)

Yesterday, Saturday, November 14, 2009 we were signing books at the 27th Annual Holiday Craft Fair held at Thorntons Ferry Elementary School, Merrimack, NH. This was the first year we have participated at this holiday fund raiser for the Parents and Teachers for Thorntons Ferry. Thanks to the Parents, Teachers and Friends of the Thorntons Ferry Elementary School it will not be our last!

Our dear friend, Christi, who we originally met through our sponsoring Merrimack Youth Baseball, came to purchase another book for her lovely daughter, Meagan. Christi and Meagan we appreciate your continued support and friendship! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Dozens of new readers purchased one or more books of the LaRosa Chronicles, for themselves and as gifts! To name a few: Coleen, Eva, Naomi, Kathy (from BAE Systems), Anne, Cindy B., Cindy W., Kathie, Sue (Merrimack teacher), Lauren, Heidi, Janis, Sarah, Kathy (and son John), Linda Cotter (who had the incredible Craft table beside us-also from BAE Systems). To you all, and to all those whose names are missing, Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! 

Literally hundreds of people were introduced to the LaRosa Chronicles for the first time at this event, which is what it’s all about. Many of you are visiting my Blog and Website for the first time right now! And I am confident you will like what you find.

I look forward to our seeing many of you who are in and around New Hampshire in the next couple of events before the holidays. And I hope to hear from many others we have met from out of the local area by email. Please visit the Blog and Website often to find out the many new happenings!

Here I am with Linda Cotter, a new reader and a wonderful crafter! (11/14/09)

Remember, an autographed book, personalized to the person of your choice, is a unique and very special gift!

Thanks for all the wonderful support!

Wow! Sal and I and over 50 other Alumni, current Students, Faculty and Staff attended the Franklin Pierce University (FPU), NH Chapter Alumni Association Network and Social on Thursday, November 12, 2009. What a wonderful time was had by all at the Salt Hill Pub in Lebanon, NH. We chatted with friends and Alumni that we knew – most of all we had the opportunity to meet other fascinating members of the FPU Alumni!

We all appreciated Dr. James Birge, President of Franklin Pierce University, for taking the time to attend this function. He spoke to the group and then spent the rest of the event going around and talking with almost everyone individually!

Now we can’t wait for the next networking social!

Take a look at the  pictures below!

Sal and I will be attending the Franklin Pierce University (FPU), NH Chapter Alumni Association Network and Social on Thursday, November 12, 2009. The function takes place at the Lebanon Center for Graduate and Professional Studies in Lebanon, NH. I have maintained an active role as a volunteer with the FPU Alumni Association and this evening will be simply a great deal of fun connecting with alumni, current students, and Lebanon Center faculty and staff.

We have made so many friends through the fpu Alumni Association and many book readers! And we have attended many functions supported by the Alumni Association. We’re looking forward to this fun function.

First and foremost, this Veterans Day,  I would like to give my respect to all those who have served to protect our country! God Bless America!

This coming Saturday, November 14, 2009 I will be signing books at the 27th Annual Holiday Craft Fair held at Thorntons Ferry Elementary School, 134 Camp Sargent Road in Merrimack, NH. This is the first year we have participated at this holiday fund raiser for the Parents and Teachers for Thorntons Ferry. Since we live and work only a few miles from this school, I look forward to our seeing many people we know and meeting many new readers through this venue.

If you’re anywhere near Merrimack, NH we would love to see you! Camp Sargent Road is off Continental Blvd, which runs between Route 101 and the Daniel Webster Turnpike. It’s easy to get to from any direction!

PS
Personalized, autographed books make great gifts! 🙂

I will have only five of six titles with me! Yesterday, Tommy Gray Drowned sold out last week and it will be a while before we receive more copies.

Saturday, November 07, 2009 we had an absolutely incredible turnout at St. Elizabeth Seton Church in Bedford, NH! Countless thanks to all the returning book purchasers, It’s great to see so many people who have become friends over the seven years attending this event. it’s wonderful to see and hear from so many satisfied readers. Many thanks to the incredible number of first time book purchasers! My growth in readership is inspiration to become the best storyteller I can!

I can’t thank everyone by name, but I will pick Lana to thank for being the best friend and returning reader and Valerie for being the best new reader of the day!
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

If you were unable to make it to this event I invite you to come out to the Thorntons Ferry School in Merrimack, NH next Saturday November 14, 2009, between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm! I hope to see you there!

Last night we went to a great Birthday Party for our eight year old Grandson, Zackary Thomas Spirito. His parents, Jeremy and Trish put on a wonderful feast for our eight Grandchildren, three siblings and their significant others, and Sal and me. It’s a bodacious feeling to see our whole family together.
