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

We are very excited to be speaking at the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians, in Manchester, NH, on January 25, 2010. Sal and I have been looking forward to this special honor since we were asked!

A Sisterhood of Irish and Irish-American, Catholic Women, The Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians is a National organization officially recognized in Omaha, Nebraska in 1894 as the “Daughters of Erin.” In 1906, the name was changed to “Ladies Auxiliary to the Ancient Order of Hibernians in America”. In 1984, the Ladies voted to change their name to “The Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians.” In 2004 they were officially incorporated on their own as Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians, Inc. I suggest you check out their fascinating history. I will be sure that KATHLEEN (working title) holds  true to their ideals.

I underestimated what it would take to revise FATHER SANDRO’S MONEY. I have been working at it for a week now and have six of the thirty-two chapters reworked. In that time one of the three editors reading SUMMER AND AUGUST has completed her revisions and the other two will soon follow.

My primary goal is the release of SUMMER AND AUGUST for May 30, 2010 and I will break away from my work on FSM to complete the final-final edit and move on to the recording of the audio master. So, although it seems a ways from getting there, we must focus on the release of the print and Audio CD versions of SUMMER AND AUGUST. What will then most likely follow is the release of SUMMER AND AUGUST for Kindle (and maybe also Nook).

I was optimistic to think I would breeze right through FSM and have it on Kindle this month. It will need to done as fill in work and most likely will not hit Kindle until after SUMMER AND AUGUST.

The holiday and birthday fun are done and despite the impact of the economy on all of us I think a hard-candy Christmas here and there makes prosperity better appreciated.

I’m finishing up the final editing on SUMMER AND AUGUST and truly believe I will start recording next week.

We’re entering another new phase of publishing, as FATHER SANDRO’S MONEY will be available on Kindle within the next week or two. The rest will soon follow.

In two weeks we will attend our first event of 2010. I was invited to speak at the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians, in Manchester, NH, on January 25, 2010. Sal and I are looking forward to this special honor!

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: 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.
