     Hurray! CreateSpace, the publisher of my books, has just offered a new option in which they can be distributed to indie and chain bookstores, academic organizations and libraries across the country! Woo-hoo!!! This means someone living on the West Coast can pop into a local bookstore and order my books! This is wonderful news!
     I signed up both my books, but they might take six weeks to be available for national distribution. I’ll let you know when this great new feature goes live.

Local indie bookstore > local author > local story >
… get them all on Friday, Dec. 11 from 7-9 p.m. at RiverRead Books, 5 Court St. Binghamton. I will be reading from A Sudden Gift of Fate, answering your questions about my writing process and signing copies of both my novels (The Cyber Miracles, too!) There will also be a sampling of Finger Lakes wines to enhance your holiday shopping experience. If you haven’t visited Binghamton’s coolest new bookstore, now’s the time. Great books & gifts!

A book is a gift that keeps on giving.

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?
