I thank each and every one of you who made this event, on Saturday, October 2, 2010 at the Barnes And Noble Booksellers in Manchester, NH,  a spectacular success! This was the third Barnes And Noble event that you bought out the store! Thank you all for your support.

This is the third Barnes And Noble that has asked us to return for an encore event. Our return to Manchester will probably be on a Friday evening in November, but watch this blog and/or on my website event page for the official date.

Special thanks to Karen and Claire and all the wonderful associates for having us at the Barnes And Noble in Manchester, NH! You made Sal and me feel right at home.

At this event we also previewed the availability of Summer And August, Father Sandro’s Money, and Spiderling on Nook. We will have all but one of my books available on Nook before the end of October!

Next week, on Sunday, October 10, 2010, we make our fourth visit this year to Yellow Umbrella Books in Chatham, MA. Yellow Umbrella Books is one of many Chatham locations featured in Summer And August.

See you there!

Monday morning I went to the McGreal Sight Center, in Concord, NH, and donated CDs and cassettes of several of my books to the NH Association for the Blind. Wow! What a special facility! The first vision rehabilitation center in New Hampshire (dedicated in 1998).

The New Hampshire Association for the Blind, founded in 1912,  provides services in virtually every community statewide, as well as at the McGreal Sight Center in Concord. They are the statewide leader in providing vision rehabilitation services for New Hampshire people of all ages who are blind and visually impaired.

I had an awesome tour of the center and met: George-President & CEO; Marcia-Executive Assistant; Joyce-Client Services Assistant; Glenn- Orientation & Mobility Specialist; Jane-Donor Records and Mail Program Manager; and Nancy-Development Associate.

Visit their website: http://sightcenter.com/ and find out the many services they provide for the vision impaired. One thing that was mentioned during my visit is that in June they are having a walk-a-thon. Sal and I are planning to participate.

After you read my previous Blog, LaRosa Chronicles, Connecting the Stories – Connection 6 Dated: 12/17/09 you are up to date with the connections between the first six published novels in the LaRosa Chronicles. Plus, you have the connection to Summer And August, A LaRosa Chronicles Murder Mystery set in Chatham, which will be released in May 2010.

The next connection goes bask in time to a character you meet in  Father Sandro’s Money, the very first LaRosa Chronicles story. Kathleen, the pretty Irish love of Armand LaRosa’s life, travels to the far Western Massachusetts town of Adams, after Armand’s tragic death, to raise her two children in peace and safety.

This is scheduled for 2011, and is currently the story that is screaming to come out. Kathleen is the working title of this story, but most of the working titles change as stories develop.

You’re going to really enjoy another totally unique style of presentation with this story.

For the next week my Blog will be brief. A simple greeting to special friends and family members. You never know whose picture might come up!

Today is the birthday of a dear friend, Debra Lawless.
Happy Birthday Debra!

Debra is the author of CHATHAM in the JAZZ AGE. Debra is a reporter for The Cape Cod Chronicle and she investigates five prominent residents of Chatham, MA (Cape Cod) and reveals their contribution to putting Chatham on the map as a national tourist destination. It’s a really great read! And Debra is working on the sequel and says it’s going well. Personally, I can’t wait!

I am fortunate that Debra is also a character in Summer And August, A LaRosa Chronicles Murder Mystery set in Chatham.

Here I am with Debra and Sal, on the porch of The Cranberry Inn, in Chatham. The Cranberry Inn is also a setting in Summer And August.

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.
