We had a great year in 2012 and are passing on our thanks with special low pricing on all books at my website!

Also, visit to see what we’ve been doing with some other talented authors.

We’re looking forward to returning to two events in October 2012, that we have participated in before.
eMail me at to find out more about these and other events planned for the remainder of 2012.

Check out to find out what else we’ve been doing.
And to read about some Great New Authors we have had the pleasure to publish!

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 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. 🙂

Email for dates and locations of these two events scheduled for May 2012!

I’m back and preparing for a new season of events which will include many of our favorite venues. Cape Cod and Yellow Umbrella Books is on the list as well as some new stops near and far from home!

Our sincere thanks for continuing to make each year better than all previous years in many ways! Bok sales continue to be great and eBook sales continue to grow! All seven of my books are available in print as well as on Kindle and Nook!

Keep coming back. I promise to post news regularly. K

The first event for the New Yesterday, Tommy Gray Drowned was at the Manchester B&N and was incredible! Don’t miss out on the fun on June 18 at the Salem Barnes & Noble!

They will also feature the New Candy-Colored Clown. Both books make  great Father’s Day gifts!

Computer issues have kept me off the air, so I’ll be brief and get this posted. We’ll see you there!

The rework was truly a labor of love! I took apart my cathartic work, which is my only book written in the first person. I eliminated a small amount of unnecessary dialogue and then added clarification and detail. The revised edition consists of 288 pages vs. the original 224, which was first published in 2000.

To those who read the original: I believe you will come away with answers to questions you may have been left wanting answered.

To those who have not read the original: I believe it reflects the growth of my writing over the past decade. You will experience a plethora of emotions. YESTERDAY, TOMMY GRAY DROWNED is a Murder Mystery, set in a fictional town south of Worcester, MA.

I promise another surprise in my next posting!!!

We always enjoy our visits to the Toadstool Bookshops.  And we really appreciate the readers who come out to support our community book stores!  These are truly great places and we need to keep them going forever!

Our sincere appreciation to Regina, Brian, Tammy, Jan, and all the wonderful folks at The Toadstool Bookshops in Milford, NH! And our thanks to all of you newcomers to the LaRosa Chronicles!

This coming Saturday, March 12, 2011 we return to the Toadstool in  Keene, NH. I’m looking forward to seeing many old friends and meeting many new friends at this event, including Franklin Pierce Alumni.
See you there!

 We look forward to seeing Jan and all the wonderful staff at the Toadstool, as well as many friends! See you there.

Next week we visit The Toadstool Bookshops, Keene, NH location!

Yesterday, Tommy Gray Drowned will be available on Nook & Kindle within a week!

I want to thank each and every one of you who made this event, on Saturday, February 19, 2010 at the Barnes & Noble Booksellers in Salem, NH,  another success! This was the fifth Salem, NH Barnes & Noble event that you bought an incredible quantity of books at this store! Thanks to each and every one of you for your bodacious support.

Sincerest thanks to Mary Ellen for having us back at this incredible Barnes & Noble store in Salem, NH! You and the associates of this store make Sal and me feel so comfortable and at home there!

At this event the store also featured Summer And August, Father Sandro’s Money, Candy-Colored Clown, Spiderling and Piscatagua on the Nook.

 Pass the word to anyone you know in the Salem, NH area; especially those who live across the border in MA, the Salem, NH Barnes & Noble store has the largest area dedicated the Nook and Nook accessories that we’ve ever seen! And there’s no sales tax in New Hampshire!

Next Saturday I have off, but we will be attending at the Barnes & Noble in Manchester, NH for Kathryn LoConte, author of Searching for Saffron.  Katy traveled to six continents before writing Searching for Saffron, a book of short stories telling of the experiences and events of Anna Collins, as she travels around the globe from country to country. It’s a fun book and an easy read. Sal and I hope you come out to support this fresh, young, New Hampshire talent! Her event is at 2:00pm.


The two weeks following I have events at The Toadstool Bookshops in Milford, NH (March 5th) and The Toadstool Bookshops in Keene, NH (March 12th), both are at 2:00pm
