     Sorry for the tricky, gratuitous Stevie Wonder reference…
     If you’d like to buy a signed (but not sealed or delivered :) copy of “The Cyber Miracles” to give as a Christmas present, you can find them at RiverRead Books in Binghamton or The Bookery in Ithaca.
     This Christmas, give someone you love a signed first edition copy!

    12062008_riverread2-21 Although it was bitter cold out as fine, sparkly snow drifted down Court Street, it was cozy inside RiverRead Books tonight. The patrons warmed up with coffee, tea and cookies (made by Joe & Fannie Fabrizio). I stood behind the podium and read aloud from my novel, trying to give the audience its flavor but not giving too much of the plot away.  It was fun to hear the “voices” of my characters come alive.
     If you haven’t visited this great new bookstore in downtown Binghamton, get yourself there! They have a terrific assortment of books, art cards, 2009 calendars featuring the art of local artist Armando Dellasanta and even magnetic finger puppets of Andy Warhol and Freud. Seriously! What fun.
     Before I left, I signed some copies of the book for future walk-in sales. This makes RiverRead the third bookstore to carry my novel! For more details on RiverRead, check out my Bookstores page.

   Yesterday I was interviewed by Steve Craig of WIVT TV 34 during the 6 p.m. newscast. It was a promotion for my upcoming reading at 7 p.m. Saturday at River Read Books, 5 Court St. in Binghamton. Steve could not have been more gracious and the staff at WIVT, including Frank Dirig, were very kind. What a fun interview!
     WIVT has a studio in the Oakdale Mall, right by Macy’s. So as I was pitching my book on the air, people were Christmas shopping all around us. It was a surreal moment.
     BTW, I just realized that my book is now available on Target’s Web site. Click here to see how you can order there.
     I’m looking forward to Saturday’s event. It will be fun to read excerpts aloud from the book, so the readers can hear the characters the way I “hear” them in my head. Yes, authors are prone to hearing voices in their heads…

About the book

Maeve Kenny's life was going exactly as she'd planned. At 30 she was dating a soap opera star and had an exciting public relations career with an Irish-owned firm in Manhattan. Then three sudden events turned everything upside down, and Maeve found herself fleeing her Queens apartment for sanctuary back home upstate in Binghamton. As she tries to readjust to the dramatic changes in her life, Maeve says she needs a miracle to turn her life around. Who would have thought the whole world would be watching when it happens?
