"Dancing Dogs" is loose in the world as of tomorrow, its publication date. "Dancing Dogs" is my first short-story collection, and I am excited about. Book tour details on the website at the top of this page, under "Calendar." These are the only events scheduled for this book tour and I do not choose the cities.
Connie Brooks at Battenkill Books, my bookstore, got about 20 cartons in this afternoon. The UPS man was tired. When I arrived, Connie was already exhausted, and when I left several hours later, we both were. I don't really know how many books I signed but my arm is sore and they are going out in the morning, and there are a lot more waiting on the floor and many orders coming in. Good for Connie, good for me, too. I will sign and personalize any books bought from Battenkill and the store is offering free signed notecards free to purchasers as long as they last (we have a good quantity left.) I appreciate these orders, as they not only support my writing, but they help a great independent bookstore working hard to adapt to the sweeping changes rocking publishing. You can buy "Dancing Dogs" anywhere, and I thank you. If you choose to purchase my books through Connie, you can call the store at 518 677-2515 or go on their site, www.battenkillbooks.com. They will ship anywhere in the world and they take Pay Pal.
Tuesday night at 7 p.m., I will celebrate the publication of "Dancing Dogs" and my second children's book "Lenore Finds A Friend" at Battenkill. I will read from the book and talk and take questions. Red and Lenore are coming, Maria too. If you need information on the reading call the store at 518 677-2515. Saturday at 7 p.m., I will be at the Northshire Bookstore, Manchester Center, Vt. for a talk, reading and signing. Here we go.
