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. 🙂

Before the event Sal and I walked through the Boston Public Garden and saw a swan nesting.

Here she is, with her mate keeping watch from the water.

Here is another picture, with her male duck bodyguards surrounding her.

Another view, showing how many duck bodyguards she has!

Her mate came over to show off.

And here is a picture taken after the event, with the two swans on the nest together.

Finally, a couple of pictures of George Washington aglow!

Tomorrow I’ll post event dates not yet shown on my website.

We had a busy four-day weekend, starting with two days of promotion on Cape Cod for SUMMER AND AUGUST! It was great seeing Eric and Mel at Yellow Umbrella Books, the folks at the Cranberry Inn and those at the Chatham Coffee Company! And, of course, Marty, whose friendship and hospitality make it difficult to come home.

We saw the proof for the full-page May advertisement in Along Route 28 for Yellow Umbrella Books. Wow! It is a great ad, with Debra Lawless, William Martin and K Spirito featured!

There has already been a posting on And there are many articles, interviews and reviews coming in May!

Every phase of this “job” is fun and different. I go from being a recluse, trying to sift through ideas and bring them out on the pages I write, to people and cameras and microphones, which I was never to fond of, but have met many wonderful people as a result of! Every facet is exciting, especially seeing previous readers and hearing what they have to say, plus meeting new readers who are just discovering LaRosa Chronicles!

We are distributing the pre-publication, numbered copies many of you reserved. More new people have joined our readership during this phase than with any previous book and most who had numbers from earlier books have kept their numbers with SUMMER AND AUGUST! Some buying many copies for friends.

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.
