Good morning, Everyone. It’s brisk here in my corner of the world. It is also noticeably dark since the equinox has evened out the day and night light. As autumn ushers in The Dreams of Singers and Sluggers, book two in the Becoming America’s Stories series will soon launch. I am in furious writing mode. Pour your coffee. Let’s catch up!
If we were having coffee together, I would shout out TADA! Here is the cover of The Dreams of Singers and Sluggers. Penny Weber did such a beautiful job. What do you think?
The launch is scheduled for the last week of October. I am finishing up the edit approvals and getting the introduction, acknowledgement, and blurb pages done. I should also get a few book discussion topics in as well.
If we were having coffee together, I would announce that there will be a LIVE book launch party. I will be at Cool Beans Coffee Shop on November 13th from 1 to 3 pm, right next door to the West Sayville Post Office. If you are nearby, come in, browse, and buy brand new copies of my books. It is a lovely shop featuring fantastic coffee and bakery treats. Bring the kids! I will sign books and there will be a craft table.
If your book club plans to read The Dreams of Singers and Sluggers, please email me to score book swag and special pricing!
To prepare for the launch party, I am putting together a slide show starring my readers. If you read The Heart of Bakers and Artistsand/or Becoming America’s Food Stories, PLEASE take a picture of you with the book. Ebook pics are great, too. Does anyone have a music suggestion for the slide show?
Stay tuned for more upcoming events and specials.
If we were having coffee together, I would offer the link to put up a review of The Heart of Bakers and Artists and Becoming America’s Food Stories. Reviews help readers choose a great book. Help your friends discover the books you enjoyed by rating and/or writing quick book reviews. Here are Amazon’s links to The Heart of Bakers and Artists and Becoming America’s Food Stories. Feel free to copy and paste your reviews in your Goodreads library. Thanks a bunch.
If we were having coffee together, I would add that I was a guest blogger on Orange Blossom Publishing. I wrote The Long Haul of Writer’s Training. You can read it here. If you are interested in submitting a blog about your writer’s journey, check out Orange Blossom Publishing.
