PCOMING EVENTS:

All events are postponed until next year due to the potential weather factors that can be found north of the Mason Dixon Line. I will be posting next years events as they are finalized and confirmed. A big thank you to all those that I had the pleasure of meeting this year…what a great ride it’s been!


RECENT HAPPENINGS:

October 28, 2017, 12:00PM – 3:00PM

ANT Bookstore & Cafe
345 Clifton Avenue
Clifton, NJ 07011

ANT Bookstore and Cafe…only once before has a bookstore been this hospitable and kind to me and my wife. And the cafe! O!M!G! I gained 10 pounds trying a smidgen of this and a smidgen of that. Great food & service with a smile! Honestly, the culture shock of walking into a bookstore with no visible books written in English (I did find a good selection of children books and a rack of american titles) combined with all conversation being spoken in the Turkish language was quite a culture shock.  I am so happy to have met these kind souls from Turkey and cant wait to visit this store again in the future!

It was an absolute honor to meet and exchange books with Stephen Clark, whose event was set to begin once mine ended. His credentials alone make me want to read his political thriller, Citizen Kill. Can’t wait to read it…hopefully, as I told you, I will have time within the next year!

Montgomery Book Exchange – General Montgomery Day
15 Union St.
Montgomery, NY 12549

My day working (NOT) at Walter’s store, The Montgomery Book Exchange was, once again, a day that planted memories in my mind forever. This store – because of the love and dedication Walter puts into it – is a place that welcomes its guest in an embrace that warms and comforts them immediately. This is a store that both the young and old can visit, get comfortable (or play in the children’s corner for the young), and read or discuss books with one of the most knowledgeable people I know when it comes to literature.

General Montgomery Day was a ton of fun and allowed me to meet great people and firm up the belief in what I am trying to do here…

I have to say, without a doubt, the highlight of my day was getting to know Dakota, Tabitha, and their father (left). Thank you so much for making my day. I really hope you guys enjoy the book and start hassling me to hurry and release the next in the series! I also enjoyed meeting the miner league team HV Renegades’  mascot, Rascal, and other folks who were interested in my stories. Thank you all for meeting with me!

It was such a surreal moment every time I walked by this banner and poster, proudly being displayed in a large book store like Barnes and Noble!
