Looking Forward to Book Signing at R.J. Julia Independent Booksellers on September 17 in Madison, CT

I'm pleased to be a part of the Local Authors Night at the R.J. Julia Independent Booksellers on September 17, 2014 starting at 7:00 PM. My book, A Vacationer's Guide to Rural New England Bookstores, has been out for a year and a half [hard to believe it's been that long] and yet, it keeps selling. I'm working on the next edition, which will include even more listings, but locals and those on vacation continue to be interested in finding those hidden book shop treasures in New England.

Along with several other authors, I will participate in the event, which is being coordinated by the American Authors & Publishers Guild in cooperation with R.J. Julia. The Local Authors Night will feature these other books and authors:

- A Shared Landscape, by Joseph Leary
- Mystic in the 50s, by Tom Santos
- The Legend of Hobbomock: The Sleeping Giant, by Jason Marchi

Back when the current edition of my Guide Book was published, the Boston Globe wrote a review that said "it was a good one for the glove box." The commentary by Jan Gardner was much appreciated as it meant someone understood how I envisioned the book being used by readers. It's a reference, but it's also a handy tool, for use on an on-going basis. As you visit around New England over time, you can go back to the Guide Book for suggestions on where to find a great independent or used book shop.
