My novel takes place in the heart of Finger Lakes wine country in upstate New York. Today, Finger Lakes Wine Country released a FREE iPhone app that can be your official guide to this beautiful region. The app includes suggestions on how to explore the Finger Lakes with links to Wineries, Accommodations, Dining and Things to Do. It includes maps of the wineries, reviews and related Twitter updates.
     The app is available NOW at Apple’s app store. Applications tailored to BlackBerry and other mobile devices will be released soon, according to the press release.
     If you’ve enjoyed my novel, there’s no better way to celebrate completing it than spending a lazy day exploring the Finger Lakes and trying to find locations in the story.
Be sure to quench your thirst with a glass of fine FLX wine. By the way, May is Riesling Month. Search the app for more info…
   Hmm, perhaps you can even  find Loughmare Winery on this app… ;^)

Irish author Eddie Stack (who helped me give an accurate County Clare flavor to my novel) cuts the edge of literary technology today by launching his collection of terrific short stories, “The West,” as an iPhone app. The app includes Eddie reading his works and music by trad greats Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill. Learn more at the Apple iPhone app store. It’s an incredible bargain @ $1.99!
I recommend highly this book that captures vividly a certain time in the West of Ireland, with characters whose desperate, insular lives will haunt you.

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?
