The writing comes hard on a week like this. To update you all, my dad had a valve replacement in Boston, and it took me away from my scheduled daily musings. It was a successful event, and he is doing well. Thanks for all the notes.
This isn’t an apology, only an explanation about why this week’s Newslog post is really about nothing in particular. I know you all understand that family things come before the written word.
I will take the opportunity to share that the launch party for my new book will take place in Belfast, Maine, on October 1, 2021, at Left Bank Books. It’s easy to find, and I love the staff there. It will run from eleven a.m. until one p.m. (I will sign books longer if necessary, so don’t worry that I’ll just bolt down the street at one).
We have a couple of contingency plans in place. If the weather is what I want it to be, we will do it outside on the street. It worked well last time.
If the weather sucks, we will work from a large table inside. “Got Warrants?” is an exciting book for me, and I think those who have followed my writing for a while will find it a light and easy read. The book is a bit smaller than my last and the next. It’s just what we need to lighten our loads as we skid toward another Maine winter while overloaded with pandemic supplies.
I hope that many of you will come out, and I look forward to meeting and chatting as much as we can in the time allotted to us. I love to do signings, and not because I love to sign books. I just like meeting the folks that have read my stuff and supported me over the years. It means a lot to me. Please come to Belfast and be part of the plan.
Thanks for the support for the blog page, both financial and moral, and thanks for reading my stuff.
I hope to get back to just writing stuff by next week.
