And to read about some Great New Authors we have had the pleasure to publish!

Hi,
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 ASnowyDay.com 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. 🙂

This was an incredible event! Sincere thanks to all the bodacious people who bought a tremendous number of Yesterday, Tommy Gray Drowned;  Summer And August; and Candy-Colored Clown!

Here’s a picture of me with Dee at the Manchester B&N

Sincere thanks to all the wonderful associates at the Manchester Barnes & Noble; especially Claire and Karen!

Sal’s second author, Kathryn LoConte had a great day at the Salem Barnes & Noble, with Searching for Saffron, at the same time as us!

Next week, May 14, we have a personal event, but you can catch up with Sal’s third author, Michelle McCorkle, with Angel of Mercy, at the Salem Barnes & Noble. And/or Kathryn LoConte at the Toadstool Bookshop in Keene!

The following week, May 21, we have a private event with the Monadnock Writer’s Group; Michelle will be at the Toadstool Bookshop in Keene!

After that, on Memorial Day weekend, we return to Yellow Umbrella Books on Cape Cod on the  anniversary of the first event for Summer And August!

Lots more going on this summer. Keep coming back!

April was a very busy month for Sal and me…
We had Birthdays, Retirements, Concerts, Expo’s and more!

We have a lot going in May. Our very first event for the NEW Yesterday, Tommy Gray Drowned, A Murder Mystery.
Yesterday, Tommy Gray Drowned is the sixth book published by A Snowy Day Distribution in our first year of business.

If you read the original you will have answers to questions left hanging. If you have not read the original you will certainly find Yesterday, Tommy Gray Drowned, A Murder Mystery an emotional experience.
Sal and I hope to see you at the Barnes & Noble Bookseller in Manchester, NH at 2:00pm.

But if you can’t make it there we will be speaking to the Monadnock writers Group on May 21st and then at Yellow Umbrella Books, in Chatham, MA, on Cape Cod on May 29, 2011 (which is the one year anniversary of Summer And August).
Much more coming up this Summer and Fall!

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.

PS
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

I will return to the Barnes & Noble in Salem, NH on February 19, 2011, at 2:00pm, for the fifth time since September 2010! We have grown an amazing following in the area and our sincere thanks to Mary Ellen for bring us back!

Sal has booked the first book signing event ever for Kathryn (LoConte) Lapierre  at the Barnes & Noble in Manchester, NH on February 26, 2011, at 2:00pm. Katy published SEARCHING FOR SAFFRON through A Snowy Day Distribution & Publishing in 2010, but kept her circulation of the book to word of mouth, due to a November, 2010 wedding and a honeymoon that took her and Randall to Fiji, New Zealand and Australia in January, 2011. Katy had 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. We’re sure that you’ll hear more from Katy before long!

Like my books SEARCHING FOR SAFFRON is also available on Kindle and Nook.

I’ll tell you about more bookstore events, another author Sal is publishing, and a re-publishing of one of my earlier books next time.

Sal and I hope you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

We shared ours with our children and grandchildren, which is enough to give thanks for, but we also were able to celebrate the 17th birthday of our grandson, Christopher!

The Saturday after Thanksgiving was the 17th Annual Winter Holiday Stroll, in Nashua, NH!. Sal & I have participated every year since it started!

The following Saturday was the Spirit of the Season Christmas Parade, in Manchester, NH. Mickey Blue Eyes, Sal & I marched with the Friends of the Manchester Animal Shelter. We handed out hundreds of candy-canes and homemade dog biscuits that Holly made. There were around a dozen dogs participating and everyone’s dogs were well behaved. We had an incredible time! This parade will be the 1st Saturday in December at 4:00pm again next year.

Here are just a few pictures…

There were over eighty groups in the Manchester, NH Parade. We marched with the Friends of the Manchester Animal Shelter. The Duhaime family carried the banner.

Here is Mickey Blue Eyes, anxious to go!

Here is Mickey Blue Eyes, around the halfway point. We were behind the NH Roller Derby group.

We stopped numerous times, for Mickey Blue Eyes to greet children along the route. She had a great time! And a great night’s sleep!
