We’re looking forward to returning to two events in October 2012, that we have participated in before.

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. 🙂

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

Yesterday, Saturday, November 14, 2009 we were signing books at the 27th Annual Holiday Craft Fair held at Thorntons Ferry Elementary School, Merrimack, NH. This was the first year we have participated at this holiday fund raiser for the Parents and Teachers for Thorntons Ferry. Thanks to the Parents, Teachers and Friends of the Thorntons Ferry Elementary School it will not be our last!

Our dear friend, Christi, who we originally met through our sponsoring Merrimack Youth Baseball, came to purchase another book for her lovely daughter, Meagan. Christi and Meagan we appreciate your continued support and friendship! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Dozens of new readers purchased one or more books of the LaRosa Chronicles, for themselves and as gifts! To name a few: Coleen, Eva, Naomi, Kathy (from BAE Systems), Anne, Cindy B., Cindy W., Kathie, Sue (Merrimack teacher), Lauren, Heidi, Janis, Sarah, Kathy (and son John), Linda Cotter (who had the incredible Craft table beside us-also from BAE Systems). To you all, and to all those whose names are missing, Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! 

Literally hundreds of people were introduced to the LaRosa Chronicles for the first time at this event, which is what it’s all about. Many of you are visiting my Blog and Website for the first time right now! And I am confident you will like what you find.

I look forward to our seeing many of you who are in and around New Hampshire in the next couple of events before the holidays. And I hope to hear from many others we have met from out of the local area by email. Please visit the Blog and Website often to find out the many new happenings!

Here I am with Linda Cotter, a new reader and a wonderful crafter! (11/14/09)

Remember, an autographed book, personalized to the person of your choice, is a unique and very special gift!

Thanks for all the wonderful support!

Wow! Sal and I and over 50 other Alumni, current Students, Faculty and Staff attended the Franklin Pierce University (FPU), NH Chapter Alumni Association Network and Social on Thursday, November 12, 2009. What a wonderful time was had by all at the Salt Hill Pub in Lebanon, NH. We chatted with friends and Alumni that we knew – most of all we had the opportunity to meet other fascinating members of the FPU Alumni!

We all appreciated Dr. James Birge, President of Franklin Pierce University, for taking the time to attend this function. He spoke to the group and then spent the rest of the event going around and talking with almost everyone individually!

Now we can’t wait for the next networking social!

Take a look at the  pictures below!

Sal and I will be attending the Franklin Pierce University (FPU), NH Chapter Alumni Association Network and Social on Thursday, November 12, 2009. The function takes place at the Lebanon Center for Graduate and Professional Studies in Lebanon, NH. I have maintained an active role as a volunteer with the FPU Alumni Association and this evening will be simply a great deal of fun connecting with alumni, current students, and Lebanon Center faculty and staff.

We have made so many friends through the fpu Alumni Association and many book readers! And we have attended many functions supported by the Alumni Association. We’re looking forward to this fun function.

First and foremost, this Veterans Day,  I would like to give my respect to all those who have served to protect our country! God Bless America!

This coming Saturday, November 14, 2009 I will be signing books at the 27th Annual Holiday Craft Fair held at Thorntons Ferry Elementary School, 134 Camp Sargent Road in Merrimack, NH. This is the first year we have participated at this holiday fund raiser for the Parents and Teachers for Thorntons Ferry. Since we live and work only a few miles from this school, I look forward to our seeing many people we know and meeting many new readers through this venue.

If you’re anywhere near Merrimack, NH we would love to see you! Camp Sargent Road is off Continental Blvd, which runs between Route 101 and the Daniel Webster Turnpike. It’s easy to get to from any direction!

Personalized, autographed books make great gifts! 🙂

I will have only five of six titles with me! Yesterday, Tommy Gray Drowned sold out last week and it will be a while before we receive more copies.

Saturday, November 07, 2009 we had an absolutely incredible turnout at St. Elizabeth Seton Church in Bedford, NH! Countless thanks to all the returning book purchasers, It’s great to see so many people who have become friends over the seven years attending this event. it’s wonderful to see and hear from so many satisfied readers. Many thanks to the incredible number of first time book purchasers! My growth in readership is inspiration to become the best storyteller I can!

I can’t thank everyone by name, but I will pick Lana to thank for being the best friend and returning reader and Valerie for being the best new reader of the day!
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

If you were unable to make it to this event I invite you to come out to the Thorntons Ferry School in Merrimack, NH next Saturday November 14, 2009, between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm! I hope to see you there!

Last night we went to a great Birthday Party for our eight year old Grandson, Zackary Thomas Spirito. His parents, Jeremy and Trish put on a wonderful feast for our eight Grandchildren, three siblings and their significant others, and Sal and me. It’s a bodacious feeling to see our whole family together.
Happy Birthday Zack! ((11/06/09)
