Ho! Ho! Ho!

I just created the blog for my new novel, 3/17. The book is in final editing stage. Follow all the latest news on it here.

My display at Barnes & Noble in 2008.

On Tuesday, Sept. 21, I’ll be participating in my first “-palooza” event.
     Barnes & Noble in the Town Square Mall, Vestal, N.Y., is hosting a local authors event called “Authorpalooza” that evening at 6:30. About 15 authors will be sitting at café tables around the bookstore selling and signing their books. (Books are bought at B&N checkout.) It should be a fun event with special drawings for guests.
     I think my new novel, 317, will be published by then. I’ll let you know.

nanowrimoOy vey, I just signed up to be part of National Novel Writing Month. (Crazy? Perhaps… )
     NaNoWriMo is a great concept where writers around the world give each other support as they attempt to complete a 50-000-word manuscript in November. (That’s 1,667 words/day.)
     I know it can be done. My third novel, to be released next year, was completed last January for a contest on Amazon.com. (So, OK, I had an extra day ;^).
    Wish me luck! The novel to be features Irish-American themes and I hope will be a fun, quick read.
     Follow my progress at my NaNoWriMo web page, here.

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?
