I’ve been out of touch for a while as a result of a crisis in our extended family. Our four year old god-daughter, Beth, was diagnosed with a renal tumor and lesions on both lungs. The tumor has been removed and chemo and radiation will soon begin.

Real life has a way of making all else seem unimportant!

I’ll get a November and December schedule posted soon.

On Saturday, November 6,2010, we will be at St Elizabeth Seton Church, Bedford, NH!
Signing…
SUMMER AND AUGUST 
and other works of the LaRosa Chronicles.

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!

Summer & August is the first book published by A Snowy Day Distribution & Publishing to be available in print; on CD, on Kindle, and on Nook!

We sold our books this past Saturday & Sunday, September 18th & 19th at the Cracker Barrel Fair in Wrentham, MA, with 20% of all sales going to the Wrentham Developmental Center, on behalf of The Friends of Wrentham.

Our sincere thanks to all the bodacious folks who took the opportunity to purchase my books, while at the same time help this wonderful cause.

The Wrentham Developmental Center is only one of three such state-run institutions for people with developmental disabilities in New England. They need our assistance to continue providing care for those in need. The Friends of Wrentham make a difference!

This incredible event, sponsored by The Friends of Wrentham, was not only a great time, but a great fundraiser.

Here are some pictures:

Our next-door neighbor at the event for two years, Claude and his rock wall provided a lot of fun for kids of all ages!

This was our view looking East.

My location was the blue canopy top with no side walls, behind the 4H sailor holding the shark-pony.

This was another of the 4H contestants.

I was lead to believe this Red Sox player was not very tall?

I guess I was wrong!

More of the action.

A closer look.

We’ll be back there next year; you should too!
Next year’s dates are Sept 15, 16,17, & 18. The Cracker Barrel Fair is located on the grounds of the Center; 131 Emerald St, Wrentham, MA.
There is something there for everyone!

Tomorrow I’ll post the next few events.
