The time for my appearance at the Country Bookseller is set. I will be in the store from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, May 16. Hope to see a lot of my Wolfeboro friends there to say hello.

Other than that, the schedule remains as published previously. Here it is again for those who may have missed it.

Sunday, May 17, 1-3 p.m.- Willing Workers Hall in on Route 109 in Melvin Village. Brief programs on my progress with the Stacey Burns book and my next novels will be followed by a cookies and punch “meet and greet.”

Monday, May 18, 7:00 p.m.- Moultonborough Library- A literary program featuring my new novel, Live Free or Die, will be presented with the discussion focusing on how a sequel or a series is developed and how do ideas translate into full length novels.

Tuesday, May 19, 6:30 p.m.- Meredith Library- “The First Novel- the Process, The Pain, and the Pride” will guide the audience through the trials and tribulations inevitably associated with writing and finally publishing a first novel.

Wednesday, May 20, 3:00 p.m.- The Taylor Community in Laconia- “I Can’t Believe YOU Wrote This Book” ill be presented. This light program will  focus on the origin of characters, setting, and plot and the perceptions that readers form about the author from these crucial aspects of writing fiction.

The remainder of my East Coast trip will feature stops in private venues in New Jersey and Maryland.

I am looking forward to renewing old friendships and acquaintances.
