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.

We always have a bodacious time at the Toadstool Bookshops. And we really appreciate Don inviting us back! So many great readers in the Keene, NH area. Thank you for your support.

In addition to Summer And August, A Cape Cod Murder Mystery we featured Time Has A Way and Candy-Colored Clown which were just re-published by A Snowy Day Distribution & Publishing!

Another surprise will be announced here 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!

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

Sal and I had a great time at this reading group meeting! Good conversation and great food! Our thanks to Christina for coordinating the event. Sincerest thanks to Jean for hosting the event in her beautiful home; and to Stacy, Pat, Marti, Lisa and Bernadette for all the wonderful discussion.

It has become more and more popular for book clubs to ask authors to come and speak. We love doing this, because we can have more time answering questions people have about writing in general and about my books.

Please feel free to email Sal or me to schedule your own event. Go to the web site at www.kspirito.com and click on either email address (on the center panel of the home page).

This coming Saturday, February 19, 2011 I will be at the Barnes & Noble Bookseller in Salem, NH at 2:00pm. This is the fifth time we have been at this incredible book store since September! Last time we sold out in less than an hour. Come early!

After this event I’ll remind you about Kathryn LoConte’s event at the Manchester, NH B&N and tell you about my next visit to The Toadstool Bookshops in Milford, NH in early March!

PS
Continue to spread the word to your e-reader friends that my books are available on Nook & Kindle!

This whole week has been filled with birthday greetings and visits! I thank each and every one of you for your warm wishes!

Not to take away from all the friends and family with who I have had the pleasure of enjoying, the highlight of my birthday was Sal & I having lunch with our goddaughter, Beth Alice and her Mom & Dad!

We had a wonderful lunch and visit and received a family picture and a couple of pictures of Beth.

Here’s one…

We Love You, Beth and look forward to you being through with all of the medical treatments and returning to your normal routines.

It has become more and more popular for book clubs to ask authors to come and speak. We love doing this, because we can have more time answering questions people have about writing in general and about my books. Our thanks to Christina for setting up the evvent this Friday!

Please feel free to email Sal or me to schedule your own event. Go to the web site at www.kspirito.com and click on either email address (on the center panel of the home page).

After this event we will be at the Barnes & Noble, in Salem, NH on February 19, 2011 at 2:00pm.

We have another Barnes & Noble and two of the Toadstool Bookshops booked also. I’ll tell you about them next!

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 had a wonderful evening at the Salem, NH Barnes & Noble talking with The Windham Newcomers and Friends “Book Bites” Reading Group.

Sincerest thanks to Sandy and Dyan for inviting us to met with the reading group and to the Salem, NH B&N Community Relations Manager, Mary Ellen, for hosting this event!

We talked about LaRosa Chronicles, A Snowy Day Distribution & Publishing, writing, book titles, cover design, and so much more. If the store didn’t close at 10:00pm we might still be talking!

Windham Newcomers is a non-profit group whose ultimate mission is to promote social activities for women who are new in town, as well as established residents who would like to form new friendships and expand personal interests and activities. Sal and I truly feel we made many new friends at this meeting!

There is much more going on, including another private book club meeting this week, but I will save that for another day.

Here are a few pictures of some of our new friends from The Windham Newcomers and Friends “Book Bites” Reading Group!

Talk to you soon!

Sal and I hope you had the Merriest Christmas, the Happiest Holidays, and that you all have the best year ever in 2011!

Sal and I are thankful to all of you who made 2010 the best business year ever for my books and made A Snowy Day Distribution & Publishing have an amazing first year in business!

This week we have a couple of book club events. One in a private residence and one at the Barnes & Noble Salem store, which has been incredible to us! Sincerest of thanks to Mary Ellen for her hosting us three times last year and for hosting the upcoming Windham Book Club event!

I’ve been working on a re-write of YESTERDAY, TOMMY GRAY DROWNED. It’s the only book not yet available on Nook and Kindle, because we lost the electronic copy several years back. And I couldn’t see just typing in the existing content, since I believe my writing style has grown in the ten years since it was written. When it’s done we will publish it for Kindle and Nook and also re-publish it in print through A Snowy Day Distribution & Publishing.

I have more going on, but will save it for another day. I will get more postings done in 2011 than the last half of 2010. At least that’s my plan!

Visit my blog at www.kspirito.wordpress.com for the first notice of anything happening with Sal and me.

Talk to you soon!
