At 11:30 a.m. today, I will be a guest on Finger Lakes Wine Talk with Morgen McLaughlin. If you can’t listen live, the show will be archived on the web site. Morgen’s done a terrific job of providing Finger Lakes wine fans access to winemakers with this show. I’m delighted to be on the show discussing A Sudden Gift of Fate.

I’m about to launch the marketing campaign for the novel. A review will be posted soon at the blog  All Things Irish. Two big events are coming up very soon, also:

  • OCT. 21, 11:30 a.m. : Interview w/ Morgen McLaughlin, President of Finger Lakes Wine Country on her BlogTalkRadio show Finger Lakes Wine Talk.
  • NOV. 1, 2-5 p.m.: Book launch at RiverRead Books, Binghamton. Reading, book signing and sampling of Finger Lakes wines.
  •      Keep watching the events page for the latest information. The book has already made its way across the country to Montana, California, North Carolina as well as here in New York. Hope the story continues to have “legs,” just like a glass of fine wine.

    What readers are saying:
    "This endearing foursome, that so many readers of the first book fell in love with, face new challenges with Irish wit and a generally upbeat outlook on life. They're a group of friends that anyone would want to hang out with."
    "After finishing it, I kept thinking of the characters and wondered how they were doing. I had to remind myself they weren't real and had to let them go..."
    "I couldn't put it down."
    "Pure dead brilliant!"

    The story

    Irish couple Fergal and Brídgeen Griffin get an intriguing wedding gift: the chance to manage a Finger Lakes winery. When they move to Keuka Lake from Queens, see the rundown winery and meet its surly winemaker, they realize it will be quite a challenge getting from grapevine to bottle.
    Meanwhile their friends Maeve and Andy face a challenge of their own, separation as he pursues experimental therapy for his paraplegia.
    As the two couples face the challenges ahead, will they be able to keep hope alive?
